In the sequel to the visual masterpiece, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, J.K. Rowling has written and produced an even more impressive and illustratively striking film in The Crimes of Grindelwald. From start to finish, the movie keeps the audience hooked from beginning to end. Creatures new and old create eye-catching displays and provide comic relief in an otherwise dark story.

The complexity of the relationships between the characters is portrayed impeccably by the cast, especially in the complicated sibling relationship between Newt and Theseus Scamander. Most heartbreaking, though, was the severing of several integral bonds between the main characters of the film.
