‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Reviews Are In and They Are Meh

- currently at 56% on Rotten Tomatoes

- one critic called it "the first anti-Trump blockbuster"

- "...there are subplots within subplots, supporting characters with their own supporting characters, Easter eggs butting up against other Easter eggs, and secrets stacked on top of secrets, until the whole precarious pile comes tumbling down in a chaotic third act"

- "An excruciating bore just barely enlivened by stray glimpses of Hogwarts, a flicker of gay romance and a menagerie of computer-generated creepy-crawlies"

- "It needs to have an interesting story with dynamic characters and only tangentially tease toward future films that may or may not happen. However, Rowling’s script goes the opposite way."
