Fantastic Flop

Well, I just returned from taking the family to see Fantastic Four and, boy, was it bad. The story was full of logical plot holes large enough to stomp a thing through.

The most eggregious of these plot holes was, I thought, the way the movie just assumed that people would treat the four returned spacers (five if you count VVD, who was supposedly not changed in the beginning) would automatically be proclaimed as heroes. It was just assumed that people would flock to the Four with cheering and signs waving.

Not only that, but at the end, the first thing (no pun intended) the public is aware of during the battle between Doom and the FF is when Doom and the Thing crash to the street. Then there's a huge fight that culminates in Dar-- the FF encasing a man in carbonite. Hell, for all the man or woman on the street knows, the FF have just jumped an innocent man and killed him. And, yet, they're hailed as heroes and feted in the East River.

Heck, even my 12-year-old son, Rich, who loves just about everything superheroic unconditionally, said at the end of the movie, "They couldn't defeated Doom that easily, could they?" And, yep, they did. Just that easily. Most of the movie was spent with the FF trying to cure themselves of their superpowers.

I never saw Elektra so I don't have that to compare it to, but I did see Daredevil and I thought the FF movie was below DD. Well below.

Not Fantastic.

I'm so very disappointed.

I've never been a big fan of the comics Four, so I've not wanted to spend money on the movie. The fact that at best it's got "it's fun if you disengage the brain" reviews seems to prove me wise for doing so.
