    Very boring and forgettable but at least it looks good.
    Like any big-budget movie these days, the visuals are gorgeous and the story is almost non-existent. It seems phenomenal to me that a film from the Harry Potter universe can be so boring with some interesting characters but that lead nowhere. The story that is has no sense and I had the impression that I was watching a movie about nothing until the end when I realized "so this is what they had to do" that is, random things just happen. Where are the fantastic animals? I seriously remember only one and that is again at the end. Very disappointing, this franchise made no sense after the second film, but I hope that after this failure it will stop.

    Awful even with low expectations
    JKR should be embarrassed to be associated with this mess of a plot. No connectivity of logic between scenes and with the entire series.

    The series is not popular in general but I thought the 2nd movie was ok and I liked the baker character. But I was so wrong on this one. Waste of time with no coherence anywhere.

    They spent 2 movies on how important Credence is for Grindewald's plan and how he is related to Dumbledore. But Grindewald drops him here without any explanation and Credence switches sides. Why was he after a guy for 2 movies to just drop him in the 3rd? Albus says they didnt know of his existence in first half and second half Aberforth says they thought of him all the time!

    In Germany for some strange reason Newt's brother alone is arrested while rest are just frolicking around. Gets more and more illogical as it goes.

    Albus declares his sister was an Obscurial which is impossible as her magic was never suppressed as per HP books. Aberforth hates Albus in HP because of Ariana's death but here is cooking for him. And wouldn't he mention a son in HP if he had one as per this film.

    Time they stopped this nonsense which is been made only for money,
