| A filler for better things to come.
Although a lot was promised in the trailers, it falls short of those promises in the movie. Having said that, this movie is much like Deathly Hallows Part 1 in the sense that it does not stand out when watched in isolation but understandable in the greater scheme of things, as it sets up the future movies perfectly without offering much on its own. The acting did a good job although the script doesn't allow for anyone to standout apart from Johnny Depp, who seems to make audiences aware of the fact that he's Johnny Depp every once in a while. Overall, I feel this movie will be better received when its sequels come out, but mediocre as it stands.

Trivia

A set of puppeteers allowed the actors and the technicians to physically take the place of the animals which were then finalized in post production thanks to the visual effects. Robin Guiver, the puppeteer responsible for creatures, led the team. He is a recognized professional since his creation of the character of "War Horse" on Broadway and his participation in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016). The puppets were of different sizes and materials depending on the beast: for example, small bags of marbles were used to double the Niffler and his babies. And the enormous Zouwu required no less than three puppeteers, one manipulating his large sculpted head while the others moved his body and tail nearly three meters long that they swayed at the end of a pole.


Quotes

Spielman: ... you'll be glad to get rid of him, I expect.
Seraphina Picquery: We'd be more than happy to keep him here in custody.
Spielman: Six months are enough. It's time for him to answer for his crimes in Europe.
Abernathy: President Picquery, Mr. Spielman, sir. Prisoner is secured and ready to...


Goofs

Grindelwald, young and present, is shown to have a pronounced eye pigmentation defect that wasn't there in his previous ("Deathly Hallows") appearances, neither young _nor_ old. While it could be argued that this stems from an incident that took place somewhere in between these films, rather than a genetic phenomenon since birth, that still doesn't explain why it's not there in his older age.
