I get all excited when I learned about the movie.

So, as another reason to meet up with friends, we decided to watch the second instalment in the Fantastis Beasts film series and the tenth overall in the Wizarding World franchise. Reading all the contradicting comments online made me even more excited to watch the movie.

SYNOPSIS
So, Gellert Grindelwald is being held prisoner and his tongue was cut off to prevent him from 'sweet-talking' the guards and put them under his spells. When departing New York for transfer back to London, he is freed by a follower and Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) employee, Abernathy. 

Ehmmm. Why can't they just teleport him, I wonder?

Despite being banned from travelling overseas, Dumbledore sends Newt to Paris to track down and stop the newly escaped Grindelwald from gathering his faithful pure-blood wizards in his attempt to rule both the Wizarding world and the human world. While locating Grindelwald, Newt comes across the case of the missing Obscurial Credence Barebone, the last of a long pure-blood line of wizards. Grindelwald is also on the look for Credence as he believes that only Credence could kill his living equal, Dumbledore.

Newt also has to settle the misunderstanding between him, Tina (his real love) and Leta (his brother's fiance) during his travel in Paris. While in Paris, Tina meets Yusuf Kama, who is also on the lookout for Credence.

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.0/ 5.0. I love the plot of this instalment. But as the title mentions 'The Crimes of Grindelwald', I remain clueless as to what are the crimes of Grindelwald, up until the end of the movie. And the twists are just too many, at times I got entangled while trying to untangle the twists. So, please focus on the movie so that you will not miss a single clue throughout the movie. By reading the piece from The Insider, there is a list of questions that are left unanswered in this instalment. Hopefully, we will get the answers in the coming ones. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0. No complaint on this department. Everybody was superb.

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again with the right company.

Ruby dah tengok file ni. Best giler. Suka file Magik macam ni. Pastu footage banyak dari Lokasi Harry Potter. Penulis J.K Rawlings ni memang kreatif la. Beast pun unik. Pastu watak Newt tu nerd gila tp relevant tiap keputusan dia. Watak Leta tu ada class dia kan. Suka pelakon tu. Hehe. Credence tu keturunan Dumbledore rupanya. Dapat burung Phoenix tu. Tak sabar Nak tunggu sambungan. Hehe.

Awal Rawlins tengok eh! Nak tengok jugakkkkk. Tapi tula tak berapa follow up cerita Harry Potter takut jugak kot-kot tak faham nanti. Sebab ramai kata berkait kan. Kalau setakat yang Fantastic Beast pertama tu dulu dah tengok la.
