It may be the case The Crimes of Grindelwald makes more sense in hindsight like Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 1. Many criticisms directed towards Avengers Infinity War apply here too: the stakes are too low, and it very much feels like a part of something rather than a whole. It makes for a patience testing watch, the film acting as an extended trailer for its final act and what is to come.

But what hangs over the film is its cynicism. Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald Its inconsistencies are frequent and unforgivable, prioritising an expanding lore over respecting what already exists. Those who are still invested in this world deserve the same attention to detail they are used to from the original series and too often that is absent. Worst of all, Johnny Depp’s inclusion hangs over the film, and that he won’t dent its box office success at all (the film has taken over $250m at the time of writing) means the market is dictating whether Hollywood will really pay attention to its institutional problem of abuse. The real crime of Grindelwald is all signs point to business as usual.
