Deaf critic movie review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a British fantasy film. It is directed by David Yates and based on the book of the same name written by J K Rowling.

It stars Eddie Redmayne (as Newt Scamander), Katherine Waterston (as Tina), Dan Fogler (as Jacob Kowalski) and Alison Sudol (as Queenie).

The story starts with wizard Newt coming to New York with a suitcase full of magical creatures in search of a particular magical beast.

Newt loses a magical creature Niffler who loves shiny things. The scenes involving Niffler lifting purse buckles, coins and jewellery are the best parts of the film.

Newt meets Jacob (a non-magical baker), Tina (a recently demoted Auror) and Tina’s sister Queenie in his search for Niffler and other missing creatures.

Jacob’s expressions throughout the movie are hilarious. The scenes when Jacob re-enters the magical suitcase with Newt and helps Newt to find the missing creatures in the Central Park are worth watching.

The film offers a different story with amazing visual effects and beautiful magical creatures. It is a great watch for all Harry Potter fans.
