Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Review

Macee Vadney, Staff Writer

One of them is invisible. One picks locks. One of them is a thief. As for the talents of the beasts, you’ll have to find out on your own by watching J.K. Rowling’s film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
It is an action packed film that never leaves you bored. It relates to Harry Potter through the setting, magic, and witchcraft, though the characters are unrelated. This richly mythological film is thrilling and engaging.
Rotten Tomatoes gave Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them a 77% and the audience gave it 85%. Carlos Diaz Reyes from Rotten Tomato says, “Potter heads will definitely love it,” even though the film feels “a little different”.
Before seeing the movie, I was under the impression that the film would tie into Harry Potter in some way, though I was mistaken. To be clear, I was not let down by this; I was very pleased with the movie and walked out wanting to watch it again.
Fun fact: For those Harry Potter fans, you may not enjoy the new word for Muggles. They now call them “No-Maj” (means no magic).
