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.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack.  Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.)  We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc.  You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
