Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them reviews
However, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them reviews have been somewhat inconsistent. One from Variety had positive feedback, describing it as ?another imagination-tickling fantasy adventure.? It was also supposedly able to ?double duty? as a deep commentary about certain issues such as tolerance, fear, and bigotry.
On the flipside, another review from TIME said that the picture was too ?sprawling and crowded.? It was slammed for seemingly trying to pack too much mythology. This allegedly resulted into a very cramped movie.
