If the first was very much appreciated as the beginning of new magic adventure, the second, vith baseless revelations and chaotic plot, was a disappointment.
Start, despite problems (covid 19 and dismissal of jhonny Deep, replaced by danish Mads Mikkelsen, his only flaw is physical similarities
with Anton Vogel, can be confusing) the movie tells about Dumbledore’s past (is told in the book “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows”), his relationship with Grindelwald, his brother Aberforth and Ariana’s sad fate, that in the fisrt saga had beeen cut.
Based on these assumptions, despite a perfect parallelism with the history (it’s 1930 and in political world the dictators take the power), scenes in old locations and acts of emotions and fightings, the film doesn’t seem to add anything new to the saga, and pherapsh it might even been shorter.
