The third venture in to Harry Potter’s spin off has received mixed reviews since its release around the world. According to various film critics there is magic to be found, though, and perhaps that is all that matters.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore take the audience on an adventure that encompasses China, the U.K, Germany, the Austrian Alps, New York and fan favorite ‘Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry’.

It’s all so very exciting and highly entertaining with a few twists and surprises thrown in,” wrote Jeanne Kaplan, a critic from Rotten Tomatoes.

“It can be said, with some certainty, that ‘Fantastic Beasts’ has finally found its footing. This latest entry is the most fun and most buoyant in the relatively young series.

“And it’s enough to make you actually look forward to a subsequent installment (should there be one) instead of actively dreading it,” shared drew Taylor, a critic from leading film and television website ‘The Playlist’.

While on the other hand many viewers and critics found the movie quite disappointing.

“The Secrets Of Dumbledore Lacks the magic and awe the series deserves,” wrote a reviewer on IMDb.

“The series’ third outing, ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore,’ falls into precisely the same traps as its predecessor, offering up an unwieldy, mostly unsettling mash-up of adult themes and childish whimsy, made still more inscrutable by too many subplots, too many characters, and a tone that veers wildly off-course at every possible turn,” wrote Kate Erbland, an ‘Indiewire’ reviewer, shared by Metacritic IMDb.

The Secrets Of Dumbledore has a rating of 6.6/10 on IMDb charts and 51% score on Rotten Tomatoes with 148 critics reviews as of now.
