Ever since I saw the trailer for this film I wanted to see it, then I saw it few days ago and I was left a little disappointed. It felt rushed and short even though it’s 2 hours long. But the film got it’s charm. And Eddie is one of them.
Newt arrives to New York with a bag filled with magical animals that normally would be killed on sight by the magical world, but he saves them to write a book about them so people will understand them better. But.. one of them gets lose in New York and now he have to find them to only smash into a human who see’s him do magic and he’s not aware of the American magical laws. So he and the human sort of runs away after being arrested. He finds shelter with two ladies from the magical society. The human finds one of them charming and develops a small crush. While they hunting for the animals who later escaped Newts bag they find something else. A wizard with powers who leaves destruction and dead people in its path. So now… hunting down this wizard is a must. At the same time, a society of humans spreads word that there are witches and is on a crusade. But all of this comes together in the end.
The charm about the film is the people, the gang of 4 – 3 wizards and 1 human coming together to fight the evil and find the animals. Newt finds new friends when he’s the loner. We see one wizard who follows the rules to a dot to later break them for the greater good. The human will be one of your favourites, he quickly become mine. And the ending – it will make sense after you getting suspicious of one of the characters. Also.. we get a small glimpse of Johnny Depp.
