‘Fan­tas­tic Beasts’ gets 4 pop­corn boxes

The Boyertown Area Times - - LOCAL NEWS - Colum­nist

A com­pan­ion piece to the “Harry Potter” film fran­chise. Writer Newt Sca­man­der lands in early 1900’s New York, with a suit­case full of crea­tures in all sizes and shapes en­dowed with other-worldly pow­ers.

Ac­tion-ad­ven­ture and fan­tasy are set on a col­li­sion course when these crea­tures break loose to make their pres­ence known in the New York of yes­ter­year. It’s up to Newt to track them down and re­turn them to his suit­case be­fore they can wreak havoc on the city. When a se­cret so­ci­ety that gov­erns the ac­tions of witches and wizards be­comes in­volved in the search, Newt and his crea­tures’ ex­is­tence are both threat­ened... and the un­der­belly of the me­trop­o­lis be­comes the site for an ul­ti­mate bat­tle­ground be­tween good and evil magic.

“Fan­tas­tic Beasts And Where To Find Them” is rated PG-13, runs 133 min­utes, and stars: Ed­die Red­mayne, Kather­ine Water­ston, and Colin Far­rell. Rodeo’s Kid Re­view: “Fan­tas­tic Beasts” was a fan­tas­tic movie and I would give it 4 pop­corn boxes be­cause it was very mag­i­cal since they had a boy named Newt Sca­man­der who got ex­pelled from Hog­warts and is now roam­ing the streets of New York with a case of mag­i­cal crea­tures. What I loved about this movie was the mag­i­cal crea­tures and the chase to re­turn them to the wizard’s suit­case. I en­joyed the sus­pense of the scary things that hap­pened as he searched all though New York for the crea­tures. I also liked the friend­ship be­tween the wizard and his Mug­gle named Ja­cob, who is help­ful and funny. This is why I gave this movie 4 pop­corn boxes.
