Fantastic Four – Movie Review


Official Synopsis: Four young outsiders teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe which alters their physical form in shocking ways. The four must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

Review Summary: For the past decade or so, I have been under the impression that the days of comic book films like Batman & Robin or Superman IV: A Quest for Peace were long gone. Superhero films have proven time and time again that even the smallest in popularity of comic books can make for a fun film (Ant-Man). With the fourth feature film attempt at The Fantastic Four, comic book films have been reverted to the days of Joel Schumacher all over again. Fantastic Four is an uneventful ride, plunging us into the depths of choppy editing, poor CGI, laughable costume design and one of the worst third acts in the history of big budget superhero films. Shockingly, I’d rather watch the last two attempts at the Fantastic Four films. At least those movies knew they were a joke.
