we get it... daily
July 23, 2005
We've always loved the FF, back to the Lee/Kirby days. We even liked, for what it was, the abortion that was the Corman Fantastic Four movie. Now we finally got around to seeing the new movie, and here's our three bullet review.
Whah... hor... whe must have fallen asleep. Hmmm. Second point? Why bother with all the Reed/Sue/Victor stupidity. We're here to see a superhero movie, not another nerd falls for pretty girl who's already involved with a smart, sexy, swanky guy movie. Frankly we don't see what Sue could have seen in this version of Reed at all... unless it was the potential of a boyfriend with ultra stretchy parts. (And we're not even going near talking about The Thing's girlfriend...)
Action movie! Wow, that fight scene with the fire truck was the high point of action in the movie. What was up with the metal guy at the end? Was that just to foreshadow a sequel? He looks like he might be a good villain, if he ever gets a plot or some motivation. Or maybe they'll bring in Doctor Doom for the sequel, he'd be real good.
All in all, severe let-down. Another sucky "Hollywood" revision of established characters and plot - they have to piss on a story before they like its flavor.
