Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, is full of noise, many plot twists and suspense as high as it can be. With all that, the film is boring and less interesting than the worse movie you can think of in the Harry Potter/Fantastic Beast Wizardry World franchise.

It got to a point where I just could not understand why this movie had so much happening and so little of it leading to a point of excitement. It was like at every turn there is something to be revealed, something that is important to another thing that will be revealed much later. This can be very annoying and boring. I cannot understand how this movie was said to be good regardless of what the critics say, because to me it was difficult to go through the over two hours it played.

The odd thing is, J.K. Rowling developed and wrote this screenplay and what I see in this movie that is she is plotting something big, which can do great if you reading a two part book. The first part is in your hand and the second is on the shelf. In this here movie the way things were being played out, I'm bored already of the franchise. It is taking too long to get anywhere and it is taking too long to start to add up.

The plot continues where the first movie stopped, just some three months later. With Newt trying to get his international travel rights back. The rights were revoked because of what he did in the first film in New York.

Newt was giving a condition to getting his pass back, he should assist them (The Ministry) to find Credence Barebone. The man believed to be the only living Pure Blood wizard, and Grindelward wants him as a joker to kill Albus Dumbledore.

After he refused to choose sides or help the ministry he was dismissed. Dumbledore calls him later on and he was able to persuade Newt to go find Credence Barebone. Newt with his friend and human companion Jacob went in search.
This search took us through some dark pasts for many of the characters. We get to see Dumbledore and Grindelwald have a relationship. We get to see why Newt is so set apart from the others and we get to know more about Credence.

We also get to lose some people along the way in the path of trying to find Credence and getting to see Grindelwald recruit many wizards to his cause.

I for one think the movie was too deep for its own good. It introduced so many characters that were here today, gone in a flash. With many loss ends that you just wish they start linking them up sooner than later. A third movie is set to be released in 2020.
