But Crimes of Grindelwald is weighed down by the dense plot – by the end, I was struggling to keep up with who is doing what and who is on which side. And the fatal flaw is Johnny Depp, a three-time Oscar nominee, who does little with the titular role. Unlike Ralph Fiennes’ Voldemort, Depp’s menace feels like posturing. You don’t feel the horror or the charisma.I love the Harry Potter universe and I wish I could recommend this film with greater enthusiasm. It’s competent but not enchanting enough. I’m going with two and a half stars.

From the get-go, it is evident that the second film in the prequel/spin-off to the ‘Harry Potter’ series is geared towards its dedicated fan-base. The focus firmly shifts from Newt Scamander and weighs down heavily on Grindelwald and his devious plans. The plot then veers away from what made the previous entry charming and fascinating; that is, those fantastic beasts. This is a much darker and grimmer film, perched largely on the shoulders of two of the most recognisable members from the ensemble cast – Johnny Depp & Jude Law. While there are ample references to Hogwarts and cameos to satisfy fans, ‘The Crimes of Grindelwald’ has a lot of dense exposition that’s bound to baffle others. Director David Yates tries to balance this out by making the action set-pieces engaging, but the transitions from the character conflicts to CGI sorcery are clunky at best. All the dazzling imagery and ominous atmosphere can’t shake off the feeling that this is more setup than a standalone entity.

To be honest, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them wasn’t as great and engaging as the Harry Potter films, but it was entertaining enough. It worked as a source for Potter-heads to re-live the wizarding world. Its sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, is a worthy follow up with some hiccups and uneven narrative. Overall, Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald is entertaining yet uneven but it’s Johnny Depp and Judd Law’s performance, and some jaw-dropping revelations for the future films that keep you entertained.
