Hint: you'll find them in this movie
J.K. Rowling has done it again with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.This cinematically breathtaking film has impressive special effects, a consistently visually appealing color scheme, imaginatively detailed beasts and a multitude of magical landscapes.
The film has a packed and complicated plot that is not recommended for those not well versed in the characters and magical world of Harry Potter. However, for Harry Potter fans, this prequel is a beautiful continuation of the beloved series. The film touches upon many important motifs such as fear, bigotry and at times comes off as a commentary on the need to preserve wildlife. Since J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay and produced the film, it has an authentic feel to it necessary for a prequel to such an epic series.
The production quality of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is extremely high. The coloring of the film adds to the production quality with its cohesive color scheme of rich neutrals and the occasional deep blue and copper is a treat to the viewer's eyes. The soundtrack is nostalgically Harry Potter-esque and a treat to the viewer's ears (though the frequent explosions become a bit tiresome at times). The special effects and cinematography are fresh and impressive and the film is full of intricately detailed landscapes and creatures. Viewers will be suitably impressed with the detail and imagination put into recreating the world of Harry Potter.
If you're fan who grew up breathlessly enthralled by the magic of Harry Potter, this film will scratch the Harry Potter itch you've most likely carried from childhood. Sit back, relax and spend two hours and thirteen minutes immersed in the recreated beauty of J.K. Rowling's never ending colorful world of imagination.
