"I just want my work to make a difference"
A lot of my close friends like to get on my anti-movie theater streak, which by the is now closing in on nine years. Yes, nine years! An it's movies like Fantastic Four which justify my choice to watch movies in a more cost efficient way. Quite frankly, there are so many big budget, highly marketed movies that aren't worth the money, and Fantastic Four is one of them.
Luckily, I caught this film on a flight, so it killed some time, but boy was I disappointed. The plot of the film was ultra basic, the depth of the characters were very shallow, and overall, I felt like it was a simple introductory film to what should be the real ones to come.
The plot of the Fantastic Four is a great one and should and could make for a ummm, yes, a fantastic series. It can rebound ad save a potential series with an outstanding sequel. Until that comes, this film will be the standard barrier which is just awful.
Watch this one of if you need to kill time...such as being stuck on a flight.
