More of a "Wizarding World Experience" than a complete film in itself, Crimes Of Grindelwald will at least leave audiences desperate to know what's going to happen next.

The second chapter in JK Rowling's five-part story, it's a film stuffed with characters, big moments and impressive spectacle but still feels bizarrely underpowered.
