Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: New at Reason

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

BeastsYou can’t go back to Hogwarts again, obviously—it ran out of books. But the newly devised American branch of the Harry Potter wizarding world is a feeble substitute. For one thing, there’s no Harry (or Hermione, or Ron)—no children at all, in fact, unless you count one little girl who’s basically a red herring. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the opening installment of a projected five-film franchise, is a good looking movie, with lots of Dickensian grit and gleaming Art Deco interiors; and its digital effects are unusually well-integrated. But the story is thin, and its characters short on the charm that distinguished the Potter series. The Beasts pictures will probably improve as they go along, but this is a weak kickoff, writes Kurt Loder.
