Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 24, 2019
We really liked the first 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them' movie and welcomed it as a refreshment following 7 Harry Potter movies all centred around Hogwarts. The Where to Find Them' film came as a little bit of a surprise as it ventures into a more grown-up, darker part of the Harry Potter wold. At the same time it introduced new angles on several of the main characters we knew from the Harry Potter series. While the Harry Potter films were of high visual quality and fun to watch, they’re all around the the same teenagers / children at a boarding school, which got a bit tedious after a while. All in all we had high expectations of this second Fantastic Beasts instalment.

The story is mature, but there are lots of hilarious moments so it remains fun to watch. However the first thing that strikes you is that while the previous, 'Where to Find Them' movie can be regarded as a standalone movie, the Crimes of Grindelwald is clearly part of a much larger plot as we know now that the story consists of 5 movies in total. However it's a bit hard to separate the bigger cross-movie plot threads from the less relevant stuff. Perhaps there are simply too many characters and sub-plots.. I hope I'm wrong but it's almost like a tv-series that has no predetermined story line - those are always the weakest and invariably a waste of the viewers time. Similarly Grinewald simply meanders without any meaningful plot points in a bigger overarching story, as there clearly was in the Harry Potter movies and certainly the books. By now I'm not sure whether I'm looking forward to the remaining 3 movies in this series.

Our daughter, the biggest Potter- fan in the family, had less qualms. And Crimes of Grindelwald nevertheless looks very stunning on our high-end Oled screen with proper surround sound, the visuals and effects are simply stunning. with great colour tones at times of blue, yet at other times featuring warmer, sepia tones all adding to a film-noir feel.

The Blu ray also includes seven minutes of new footage they didn’t show in theatres. Not only that, but also deleted scenes.
