Peter's Rating: 4 out of 10
I can't say that I've been waiting for this movie, because I haven't been. Actually, since the first teaser trailer, I've been dreading it. But walking into the theater today I somehow expected to be surprised. I mean, I had such low expectations, Fantastic Four couldn't be THAT bad, could it? Sadly, it is.
What you probably don't know is that Fantastic Four is a comedy, but not because "it's so bad it's funny" (although it may be close). The movie is filled to the brim with sight gags and one liners, to the point that it's annoying. The humor is the only thing that saved this movie, but at the same time it was also what totally ruined it. How are we supposed to take the story seriously if for 90% of the movie the characters don't take it seriously? Actually, to say there's a story at all may be both a stretch (pun intended) and ironic (considering Tim Story directed this effort).
