The Secrets of Dumbledore ‘Review – Deadline

And so on Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, The third episode of the five-part blockbuster, which is JK Rowling’s Harry Potter prequel series. For a start, that colon of the title should not be there. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. But they have little to do with Albus Dumbledore – the headmaster of Hogwarts, the most powerful magician in the Wizarding World, and, as we have learned in this extended original story, a good man with a troubled heart – or the struggle between good and evil in the magical world. There are at least two stories and several competing heroes, with potentially meaty themes, ranging from sibling rivalries to dangerous crowd rules, packed around the edges. There is a lot going on, in other words, not all of which are understandable.

At least Dumbledore (Jude Law) out. After revealing elsewhere that Dumbledore was gay, Rowling simply wanted to tell him that he and the Dark Wizard, Gelart Grindelwald, were once “brothers.” Was closer than “. Around this time, he laid it on the line.

Once in love and league, Grindelwald and Dumbledore envisioned a future where the whole world would be ruled by magic instead of stupid, stumbling, violent people. Dumbledore’s social mission as the fanatics’ idea of ‚Äč‚Äčsubjugation of the Mughals was rejected. He knows better now, but Grindelwald believes.

In the last photo, Grindelwald was jailed for genocide. Now he is out, campaigning to be free from all charges and to be the leader of the magical world. Grindelwald now plays Mads Mickelsen, replacing Johnny Depp from previous films. Now, if you’re looking for a corrupt but charismatic villain with worldly aspirations, Mickelson looks like your guy. But when Depp played Grindelwald with an extraordinary threat, so that every word he uttered seemed to come from the bowels of the earth, Mickelsen took the opposite approach:

Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation – but it was also a story where people were confronted with Wand and Ride Dragon. Where is the fear? Mickelsen is designed to look like a place-holder, practicing lines until a perfect monster is found. It has to be a director’s decision from David Yates (or Yates’ ruler Cable, Rowling and producer David Heyman, who has been managing Potter et al from the beginning), because we know that in one whip, .

The sweet side of the franchise, by contrast, is working a treat. Newt Scamander of Eddie Redmine, a “magistologist” who can form a bond with the most unexpected crustacean but can’t look into the eyes of most people, is a matter of constant pleasure; Her shy uncertainty shakes the audience in a way superheroes can’t. The law reveals Dumbledore’s sadness – and its privacy – with both warmth and gravity. Among the other interesting two-legged creatures in the series, we rarely see Katherine Waterston, whose role is back in the character of Newt’s Crush Tinner – another strange decision – but a good deal from Charms teacher Yulali Hicks (Jessica Williams), with a voice from Katherine Hepburn. The new heroine. Its more, please.

And the eponymous creatures themselves are more glorious than ever; The hurray for the birds that swells into hot-air balloons and dancing scorpions is the centerpiece of the movie’s funniest scene (and it’s the scariest; they eat dead people). Indeed, an animal plays a role in the central story: Kilan, which has illuminated scales but is closest to an animal and has a unique ability to see into the human soul. When a new leader is elected, a child killer is called in to judge the candidates; It will bow its head at the feet of its wobbly small uterus only to the one whose heart is pure. Grindelwald’s biggest obstacle to world domination is passing the Killen test, but of course, he has a bad plan to deal with it. Selection of fraud: He is the superhero.

As I said, there is a lot more going on here. Much more to describe; Too much together. A complete running subplot about Credence (Ezra Miller), the central character in the first Fantastic Beast, who has since been published as a Dumbledore; A new feature for the mogul Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) who persuaded that he was essential to the fight against Grindelwald, although neither he nor we could find out why. Meanwhile, he’s pinning for his magical girlfriend Quinnie (Alison Suddle), who has inexplicably gone dark.

There are several loose hanging in these plot threads, no sense. There was a whole chase sequence where I had no idea who was chasing. That didn’t make any sense either. But don’t mind. This is Wizarding World. It’s fun to be there with beautiful animals. Fans love it. And maybe that’s enough. More than enough, all round.
