    I really enjoyed this for what it was.

    Talk of turning it into it's own sprawling five of so film franchise I find less appealing though.....

    It was enjoyable, if overly busy, and could’ve been a lot better with more cogent storytelling. Rowling may’ve felt too close to her source- thereby a reluctance to cut some of the fat. It’ll please HP fans for sure; it just never soars. Production values and visual effects are brilliant with Jazz Age NYC proving a fresh, atmospheric backdrop. Alison Sudol made quite an impression on me (as Waterston’s beautiful showgirl sis).
