If you love the Harry Potter series you wont want to miss this movie! The good news is, that even if you have not seen Harry Potter, you can still watch this movie without feeling lost or confused. The special effects were just incredible. The "beasts" (which most are quite cute) were so life like! The movie was not only action packed but quite funny in parts as well. I really loved that it was set in New York City, instead of Britain like the Harry Potter movies. It was a neat take on the magical world existing everywhere. I absolutely loved this movie and would recommend it to all ages!
