Critic Reviews of "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them"
New YorkerNovember 21, 2016
In all, the movie is a cunning and peppy surprise, dulled only by the news that no less than four sequels await.
The AtlanticNovember 20, 2016
To its considerable credit, Fantastic Beasts is not the Potter retread it could easily-and very profitably-have been.
The New RepublicNovember 18, 2016
The film strains considerably under the weight of all its plot lines-it's never fun to be the movie with the origin story.
Christian Science MonitorNovember 18, 2016
Rowling has a voluminous imagination and Yates keeps things humming along, although, as was also true of many Potter movies, there is often too much of a good thing.
Globe and MailNovember 18, 2016
At least the monsters, when compared with their co-stars, have some personality.
Detroit NewsNovember 18, 2016
A lavish visual feast that nonetheless fails to cast any new spells over its audience.
SFistMarch 23, 2017
Towards the end, the film gets a little too action-packed, with the city of New York (once again) on the verge of destruction. But there are enough moments of magic in the rest of the movie to make up for it.
Malibu TimesMarch 09, 2017
The film wants so badly to be fun and silly, but I'm sorry to say it's an old-fashioned dud.
eFilmCritic.comMarch 01, 2017
It has been made with a lot of style and skill and comes across as much more than the simple cash-in opportunity that it might have initially appeared to be when it was first announced.
The Sunday AgeJanuary 27, 2017
The great fantasy in Fantastic Beasts is that everything can be put back how it was, no matter what happened.
San Francisco ExaminerJanuary 19, 2017
This new movie, while slight, is also dazzling, diverting and wonderful fun.
Graffiti With PunctuationJanuary 05, 2017
Like the first chapter of any story, it has the burden of making you want to come back; and not just for the desperate satisfaction of knowing what's next
