FANTASTIC FOUR FLOP

FANTASTIC FOUR FLOP

By Hop

The new incarnation of the FANTASTIC FOUR is every bit as bad as you’ve heard. Slow, sparse action, under-developed characters, sub par special effects, and a third act that is best described as “HUH?”.

What chaps my ass about this latest breakdown in a franchise that should be rivaling the Disney/Marvel incarnation of the AVENGERS is that no one from Fox, the studio that produces the X-MEN series as well, respects or understands the source material.

They seem to think it’s silly to have a group of friends converted over to being genetically altered freaks all at once. They don’t understand or care that Dr. Doom, the main antagonist of the FANTASTIC FOUR, is one of the biggest, baddest super villains ever to grace the pages of any comic book. They cannot grasp that the FANTASTIC FOUR were a cosmic, celebrity, superhero, dysfunctional family that bonded and struggled and suffered together, but not in a campy, tongue-in-cheek way… like the MUNSTERS.

They flat out don’t get it. And that’s why we get garbage movies like this.

Note to executives at Fox Studios: If movie makers can put together motion picture phenomenon about characters that fly around in metal suits, or fight Nazis while dressed like a propaganda poster, or climb walls in red and blue tights, or wield over-sized hammers, or puff up into big green monsters… then you can get your act together and make this work.

And if you can’t, give it to someone who can.
