It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, though he's unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.Written by
In Dumbledore's Dark Arts Class he calls one of the students by the name McClaggan. Some think this student could be the grandfather of "Cormac McClaggan" who was a prominent character in The Half Blood Prince. That character's last name, however, is spelled McLaggen in the books, and this character is listed as McClaggan in the film credits, which lead to some confusion and speculations as to whether they should be regarded as related or not. But the most likely explanation for this is that someone simply misspelled the name for the credits (which wouldn't be the first for a film by a long way), and that the nod to the previously established character was nevertheless the actual intention.

Gellert Grindelwald is supposed to be of Germanic-Central European origin. Even when discussing his name, Dumbledore corrects the ministry officials' pronunciation from Gridenlwald to "Grindelvald", as a German name. Yet, he speaks with Johnny Depp's natural American, and sometimes British, accent. See more »
[to Picquery; about Grindelwald]
... you'll be glad to get rid of him, I expect.
We'd be more than happy to keep him here in custody.
Six months are enough. It's time for him to answer for his crimes in Europe.
[meets them at Grindelwald's door]
President Picquery, Mr. Spielman, sir. Prisoner is secured and ready to travel.
[peers into the cell with Picquery]
You've thrown everything at him, I see.
It was necessary. He's extremely powerful. We've had to change his guard three times - ...

This film hurts. It is so bad that I am confused. What did I just see? What happend? There is so much going on with so many forgettable characters... who are they? Why should I care? This movie wants to blow your mind so bad that they come up with the most random stuff. To be honest, the opening was trult spectaculair. But after that it went downhill really fast.
I LOVE Harry Potter, but man, I hate this movie so much.
