This is the other story of the world of Harry Potter.It was almost no relation between Harry Potter's stories and this story. Because its era is in the early 20th century and location is in New York.
I was really excited about an action of magics because it was my memory of childhood which I saw Harry Potter.
However I felt an atmosphere of this film is not really like series of Harry Potter. I thought this film is completely different film compared with others.
Personally, I believe that characteristic and attractive points of Harry Potter films are obviously in the school life in Hogwarts and youth's acting. These contents make a symphysis and an ambition in children's mind. But this film doesn't have that.
Therefore I think this is not necessary to relate to Harry Potter
. I guess this is kind of branding.
This is a quite interesting story though if ignore that point. However
it is impossible to ignore that because the story is not really remarkable. This film gets a lot of support from the brand of " Harry Potter
Nevertheless, I really like a kind of comedy in this film. And sometimes it looks so beautiful. But I wonder that why are creatures' CG not so realistic? I thought the graphic of creatures in the philosopher's stone is much better than this. This film needs a physical creation for creatures for sure.
