Perhaps “The Crimes Of Grindelwald” Did Improve On One Thing: The Villain

Published

on

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has been received rather negatively by both fans and reviewers. Nevertheless, it may have done one thing even better than its Harry Potter predecessors: the villain.

Poor Recep

The Crimes of Grindelwald has not exactly panned out as many would have hoped. Many long-time Harry Potter fans have taken issue with various aspects of the movie and some reviewers did the same. Additionally, it is said that there are three more movies in the series set to be released in the coming years, so hopefully, things turn around soon.

While the Johnny Depp-featured flick has not been met with a particularly strong response, there may be one positive takeaway.

Better Villain

The second Fantastic Beasts film offers a villain that is more dynamic than the previous movies did with Lord Voldemort. For as Voldemort was a decent villain in his own right, he was relatively single-faceted when it came to his personal life and story. He was also potrayed primarily as an adversary of the more developed characters, rather than being one of them.

Grimdelwald, however, shows a more multi-dimensional backstory and evolution, thus giving him a more accessible and interesting role as the villain.

One Other Thing

It is also quite notable that Grimdelwald has a particular advantage that Voldemort did not. This is the fact that he has been loved by some, particularly Dumbledore. This is shown by the fact that Dumbledore’s feelings toward the villain ultimately prevented him from stopping Grimdelwald when he potentially could have early on.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald may have underperformed in some categories. It is quite possible, however, that this film increased the quality given by the beloved Harry Potter series in one aspect of the story it has long fell short with: the villain.
