Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

The first Harry Potter spinoff movie ended with intriguing villain Colin Farrell transforming into Johnny Depp in a crazy wig, makeup and contact lenses. Frankly, the world didn't need another over-the-top Johnny Depp character. But we've got it anyway. Seems that wizarding bigwig Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) has sent shy magical zoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) off on a quest to find a missing magic-user before evil Gellert Grindlewald (Depp) does … eh, I don't know. This convoluted tale is all set-up and exposition, feeling exactly like what it is: chapter two of an already overly long five-part story. 134 minutes PG-13.
