So what went wrong with the Fantastic Four movie?
I'm not going to write a review; I don't have the time or inclination to critique all of its flaws. I'm just expressing my disappointment. I think the movie-making forces behind it had no concern for making a good film; they were apparently only interested in cashing in on the superhero movie trend. I hurried to return the disc to Netflix ASAP, before its badness could infect the other DVDs in my home. . . The hilight of the thing for me was Stan Lee's cameo. Could Roger Corman's infamous low-budget, grade-Z FF movie of the 90s have been that much worse??
I encourage you to read Fantastic Four comics. And I encourage you to rent or even buy this film -- not to watch it for enjoyment, but to ensure that it makes enough profit to warrant a sequel.
And then -- let's get it right in Fantastic Four 2.
