Great style and I still love Newt and everything he represents. But the plot was all over the place and relied entirely on frequent explicit exposition for everything, which to me is a sign of it being overly complex and underdeveloped.
If you're a fan of Joss Whedon and the actors he works with, this movie is a treat. Great to see so many familiar faces. Though they used the original Shakespearean dialog, the meaning was clearly conveyed by the acting.
