Fantastic Flop

Sunday, July 10, 2005

I never expect much from movies inspired by comic books, and Fantastic Four hardly looked fantastic judging by the trailers and previews - so I can't say I was surprised to have disliked the film. What kind of threw me off was how horrible the film turns out to be.

Consider that it manages to go from start to finish without doing anything of great significance. By the time each member of the Fantastic Four learns of their powers there's only time for a ridiculously goofy looking villain to kill a few people and then...well, let's just say it's bad.

Stay away from this farce. With great films like War of the Worlds and Batman Begins still playing there's no excuse to contribute your cash to this one.
