Fantastic Four – movie review

F4Grade: F

If you drag your expectations behind you, like an old wet mop used to clean theater floors, then you may not be too disappointed. Believe me, I hate being critical of the creative work that so many people put into a movie like this, but I can’t think of anything decent to say about it.

I can’t criticize any of the actors because the script was so bad there’s no way anyone could have turned in even a mediocre performance.

The story starts off with a modicum of promise, but never manages to take off. Believe it or not the movie just falls off a cliff once they get their superpowers. And I swear I’m not making this up but after the final fight scene I thought, “This can’t be the final battle, right? It’s the fight that leads up to the really good fight at the end. Wait, what? This is the end? Disappointed!”

Also, I can’t believe they didn’t include an extra scene after the end credits. I know that’s a Marvel trademark, but it isn’t like they have a patent on extra scenes.

My advice: watch the trailer for Deadpool about five times in a row. That’s way more entertaining.
