It suffers a bit from being in the middle of a series and having to set up so many questions that don't get answered yet, but for every complaint I hear about this flick, I can think of something in it worth watching.
It's turning out to be a lot more interesting than some of the (leaden) previous films... because stylistically it seems to embrace the nineteenth-century novel without any kind of problem. [Full review in Spanish]
A big part of what made this second Fantastic Beasts installment work for me is that so much of the character and world-building was already taken care of last time, which in turn made it feel like there are some actual stakes in play.
