Fantastic Four Review

I really dont want to see this movie so here is a review from jasonsmovieblog that is very thorough and fair. I may watch it on dvd just to see if I agree with critics but for now no need (Good grief I’ve recently seen Chappie and Pixels so I’m wounded enough!)

Hollywood loves rebooting movies and / or film franchises to the point where it’s almost consider commonplace. The idea is to revamp the movie’s identity (plot, characters, etc,) and make it more fitting to speak towards the current modern audience. While that’s the fundamental premise, some could argue that the film’s industry’s fixation on reboots is to simply “cash in” on today’s current trend, creating the reboot with similar overtones to what’s on the already on the market. Some have succeed in this endeavor (praised by both fans and critics), while others have faded into obscurity. Keeping up with the superhero comic book trend, 20th Century Fox releases the film Fantastic Four (a summer blockbuster reboot from 2005’s Fantastic Four). Will this updated reboot win moviegoers over or is it another failed “get rich quick” scheme by Hollywood?

    1. Cool. Will definitely read your review. After seeing Green Lantern I was done with superhero movies. I swore off them for good. Then Avengers was good and Marvel and Xmen movies started to bring me back to the fold. Don’t want anything to miss that up. 😉 Do you think it needs to be seen in theater?


  1. It all depends on how you look at it. I gave it a bad scoring (not because of everyone else was giving it), but because it had a lot of potential to be really good. The movie could’ve learned from past mistake from other movies and could’ve been truly fantastic. I hold comic book superhero movies in high esteem (Just like you Rachel with Disney movies), so it hurts me inside to see such a poorly conceived movie being made this way. As i said in review, the second half was messy, the tone wasn’t right, the characters were boring (even though I like who they picked to play them), and the movie wasn’t fun or exciting. Some of formed a different opinions about this movie (which I respect), but that’s just mine.

  2. I see what you are saying. I’m going to wait and watch it on dvd. I always try to see things with open mind. I thought you were very fair in your review even though you were disappointed
