Fantastic Four Movie Review

Michael B. Jordan stars in Fantastic Four

Flame Off!

IMDb Plot: 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. Directed by Josh Trank.

"It's just like ours... only more expensive." $122 million to be exact; but where it went, remains to be seen. It certainly wasn't spent on special effects, which are laughable at best worst; and the cast is filled with young actors, whose faces you may recognize, but whose names (save for rising star Miles Teller) likely escape you. Fantastic Four is cartoonish, cheap-looking (costumes, Planet Zero) and dumb. The last half is so horrible, it completely negates a surprisingly solid start. Who signed off on this ridiculous reboot, yet alone a 2017 sequel? Definitely not Marvel... They make good movies.

Grade: F
