Superhero films have been doing a lot of incredible things lately, especially the ones based on Marvel comics. With so many characters to beSuperhero films have been doing a lot of incredible things lately, especially the ones based on Marvel comics. With so many characters to be brought to the big screen it doesn't seem likely for the trend to stop anytime soon. Giving the Fantastic Four another shot was a good idea. However this movie wasn't the way to do it.
It's rushed and incomplete. Fragments of the story are missing, the villain has little motive, and the characters never really come together in any way that actually makes their team believable and satisfying. I applaud the attempts at change, but the execution is severely lacking. All that being said I still enjoyed the movie. It's definitely not the Fantastic Four movie I wanted, but I still found it to be an entertaining, yet highly flawed, sci-fi flick.
There is a certain appeal to watching these talented actors come together on their project. However, once the powers come into play things go off the rails. It's a decent sci-fi flick, but a disappointing superhero movie.
The charming cast is given some cheesy lines and their powers are brought to life with some surprisingly dated special effects. It kind of reminded me of an old-school, alien invasion flick in ways both good and bad.
There's a lack of emotion and certain plot-lines, such as the broken friendship between Reed and Grimm, never see any sort of resolution. It's evident that some good ideas were behind this project, but ultimately something went wrong and the majority of the film was pieced together in ways that leave it all unfinished.
Then there's Doom himself. The big baddy of the film, and one of the most significant super villains in all of comics, just sort of appears near the end of the film with some bogus plot and zero real reason for actually doing it. Part of why superhero films have been so successful recently is because of villains with real motivations and at least some attempts at being fleshed out. Those elements are strangely missing here. It feels like Doom was just included because "oh yeah, this is a superhero movie. It kind of needs one of those."
You can tell there are a lot of good ideas here and lots of areas that maybe the writer(s)/director wanted to expand upon, but ultimately either didn't get to or just didn't care enough to actually try. The end results feel lazy and thrown together. Yet, despite is disjointed execution and fragmented nature, I still found myself enjoying it.
Yes, it's a highly flawed bit of filmmaking. However it's got a great vibe, a likable cast, and a certain amount of likability to keep it entertaining despite all of the totally obvious flaws. I honestly think had it not had the Fantastic Four's name attached to it then maybe we all could have been a bit more forgiving. To be honest it just doesn't do these characters or their stories justice. For some reason though I still like it. Not because it's a good superhero film, but because it's a good bit of sci-fi nonsense that really could have been great had more effort been put into it.
It's a flawed, yet strangely fun movie. One that doesn't do much for the heroes it tries to mimic, but does enough good despite itself to still be worth a watch so long as you are willing to put with a large list of flaws. For some reason I was apparently ready to. Somehow it was able to give me reason to even with the odds stacked against it. Because of that I give it a 7.7/10. I don't know how or even really why at all, but I enjoyed it. I would still like them to go back to the drawing board for these heroes in the future though. The Fantastic Four deserve better.… Full Review »
Very, very enjoyable. Great action scenes too, which is to be expected from Bones. While I would certainly give it a 10 if I got the chanceVery, very enjoyable. Great action scenes too, which is to be expected from Bones. While I would certainly give it a 10 if I got the chance to, I feel that it lacks the 2% that would have been nice if included.

The sole reason for the fact that I didn't give it a 2, 1 or 0 and gave it a 4 is because of Vin Diesel.

While I like fantasy-related movies as much as the next nerd, this just blew it all up. The story is fairly decent, but it is executed badly. If it had a remake or a sequel I would probably watch it just to see where the story leads, but this one just didn't feel like a good movie for me.… Full Review »
