“Four young outsiders teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe which alters their physical form in shocking ways. The four must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.”
So this new Fantastic Four movie, has really been put through the works. Terrible set reports, and what not, but we finally have the final product here and what it is, is really a mixed bag. The movie takes so long to setup some of the characters, that later when it really needs to get going, it goes into over drive and just rushes to a conclusion. This movie is really what this series needed a few years ago, instead of the Fantastic Four movies that we did get. Another big problem in this movie is the villain, yet again for one of these comic book movies. They waste one of the best villains in not just the Fantastic Four universe, but in comic book villains in general. I feel like a lot of this movie could be fixed in post production, with some better editing, and better pacing. Also, a lot of the scenes we saw in the trailer, aren’t in this movie. Why i will never know, i just know that thats usually never a good sign. All in all this new Fantastic Four movie is a bit of a disappointment, but could still be salvaged going forward.
Review Score : 5 out of 10
