Fantastic Four

Comic Action


 

After being transported to an alternative universe, four youngsters gain superpowers and soon become the superhero group known as the Fantastic Four.

This reboot's mediocre attempt to emulate the now commonplace dark and gritty style of modern superhero films is just only one example of how it has missed the mark. How can a film spend so long setting up the story, only to exhibit a complete lack of character development and narrative progression? This conundrum, culminating with average CGI, an ill-fitting tone and poor casting choices- makes for an easily forgettable viewing experience. Fantastic failure.
