Two words....... Don't bother
Stick to the 80s original.
So to me this second installment was a filler movie setting up for the third act , it is ponderous and slow in places with scenes stretched out to fill the running time .
But it does have a likeable feel to the movie carried again by Eddie Redmaine as Newt although he does take a small backseat to other fleshed out characters in this one.
The effects again are top notch as is the wizarding world around them .
Decent if not spectacular.
What a fun and feel good little movie I am a huge fan of WWE it's great pantomime fun and I thought the movie directed by Steven Merchant was funny in the right places and tender and character driven in other parts.
Florence Pugh is great as the young Sarayah Knight AkA Paige and Nick Frost and Lena Headey as her parents carry the comedic weight.
Vince Vaughn is fine as the sometimes harsh NXT trainer and the poster is a little misleading with Dwayne Johnson only in a couple of scenes.
