The Guardian called it watchable and wrote, "This Fantastic Beasts film is as watchable and entertaining as expected and it's an attractive Christmas event, but some of the wonder, novelty and sheer narrative rush of the first film has been mislaid in favour of a more diffuse plot focus, spread out among a bigger ensemble cast".
