This afternoon I've been to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Here's the short version:

Fantastic Beasts: very well done. They knew where to find them and how to bring them alive.

Plot: Alas, they were totally unable find one.

All in all, despite my enthusiasm after seeing the trailer and my real eagerness to see the film, I thought it a waste of time.

It must be said, though, that I really don't like action movies. And this is an action movie: good guys hitting bad guys and bad guys hitting good guys and a Force of Evil that hits just about everyone. I find that sort of thing seriously boring, and what I loved about the Potter books was that they were so much more than that. And the part of it that was action was about a quest. To me, that's something entirely different.

So if you enjoy action movies, you may well like this one. The visuals are stunning.

Here be spoilers and a hatchet-job )
