> Too slow and dramatised superhero flick, but acceptable.
I can’t say I liked the previous films and not this one. In fact, I kind of enjoyed watching this reboot. It was much better than what I have heard about it. At least it did not sound like a loud and lousy like any modern sci-fi flicks, chasing bad guys, bombing cities and downing buildings. But as a superhero and sci-fi film, it had its moment, only at the end.
Obviously the film was too slow and dramatisation was a backslash keeping the youngsters (audience) in mind. I actually expected hefty stunt sequences. Without actions, a superhero movie is like a limbless spider and toothless shark. If the web and tooth are the superpowers, then they must handle it quite smartly. So that is where this film failed to be a clever. This film had 4 superheroes and until the climax they were impotent. Which means the only superhero movie in the recent time that meant for older people. Precisely to say, if you are a 30+, you might enjoy it as I did. I know I can’t talk for you and what kind of movies you like, but I know todays youngsters who refuse dramas and accept action-adventures.
I agree it did not deliver as it should have been as a theatrical feature where surround speakers are ready to give us a breathtaking sound mix. I felt it some kind of a television episode. Because that is how the modern television series are presented. Personally, I would like to say that don’t mind my words and the review, because I usually enjoy all the films I watch. So this one was average to me, but definitely not a bad and I won’t slam it. Though I recommend it for old people who does not like modern high-octane stunts.
I was actually not having great hopes for this movie giving how Hollywood have screwed up with a lot of my favourite super heroes (Spiderman, Fantastic Four, Dare Devil and a few others). Having said that maybe there was still a glimmer of hope given that some of their latest Marvel work have been rather okay. Unfortunately this is not the reboot of the Fantastic Four that I, and a dare say the fans, hoped for.
One thing that I do not understand is why the dumbass script writers that Hollywood employs always have to change the basic story of a set of characters that have a solid fan base? There was nothing wrong with the original story, and thus origin, of the Fantastic Four and the source of their powers. Maybe I am just old-fashioned but still.
The second gripe I have with this movie is the nonsensical stuff with members of the Fantastic Four, especially Ben, being deployed by the US military. It is just so cliché. Lazy script writing plain and simple. Unfortunately this also causes the movie to not really feel like it is a Fantastic Four movie. The team is split up and it is not until the very end that they actually become a team, gets a headquarter and so on. Big fail as far as I am concerned.
Having said all that, I do not think it is as bad as some people claim. There are some good stuff in there. The story is not all bad after all even though it is not exactly to my liking and the special effects are quite okay. One thing that annoys me with the story is that the role of Reed is really diminished and he is never really allowed to show of his powers. Yes, I know, there are some “stretching” moments but, well, meh! To add to the pain the actor cast as Reed is, in my mind, totally unconvincing.
The bad guy is also somewhat underwhelming and thoroughly predictable. As I said a classical Hollywood concoction aimed towards the less intelligent viewers. I do not understand why Hollywood seems to be so bent on repeating the same mistakes over and over again?
Well, as I wrote, the movie is not as bad as some people claim but it is far from great. Given the abysmal reviews I am afraid that we will not be getting a sequel which is a shame. This is one of the (few) Marvel comics that I read as a kid (in Sweden we did not get treated to that many of these kind of comics) so it is indeed a bit of a disappointment that they managed to screw this movie up…again.
Over the last decade, we have seen a number of superhero movies get a much needed reboot. After the atrocious Batman & Robin, Batman was brilliantly brought back to the big screen in Batman Begins. When the Spider-Man franchise hit an embarrassing rock bottom with Spider-Man 3, it was reinvigorated with the very likable The Amazing Spider-Man.
Eight years on from the dud that was Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and it’s time that Marvel’s first family got a reboot. With a lot of rumours flying around about trouble on set and the studio not seeming to have total confidence in their product, could 2015’s Fantastic Four do these iconic comic-book characters justice?
Reed Richards (Miles Teller) is a brilliant young scientist on the verge of discovering how to both transport matter to another dimension and bring it back. Recruited by Professor Franklin Storm (Reg E. Cathey), Reed is given the resources and help, in the form of Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Victor Von Doom (Toby Kebbell) and Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), to to finish what he started in his younger years.
When they finally crack inter-dimensional travel, Reed invites his childhood friend Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) to travel to another world along with him and his team. An accident causes their physical form to drastically change. Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must learn to harness their powers and work as a team to stop Victor, who is hell bent on destroying Earth.
The one thing that stood out to me about Fantastic Four is just how unbelievably dull it is. For characters who have such a rich and colourful history in the comics, this really is a pretty drab affair. The film only has a 100 minute runtime however, it feels much longer, dragging its feet and feeling very tired right from the very start.
When a superhero movie gets less exciting after they get their powers, something is very very wrong.
I had some hope for this film and one of the main reason was down to the fact that Josh Trank was sat in the director’s chair. Trank hit the big time with Chronicle, a film that combined the superhero genre with found footage. I can’t express just how disappointed I am with Trank because everything about Fantastic Four is just so sloppy.
The story is weak, the script is cringeworthy and the special effects are average at best. It all culminates in one of the most boring finales you will ever witness in a superhero movie. Compared to what else you see happen in other superhero movies these days, it all looks and feels amateur.
Then there are the performances. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Toby Kebbell are all young actors who have the world at their feet. They have each impressed in their own way prior to Fantastic Four but every single one of them has the range of the cast in Tim Story’s Fantastic Four films and waste their talents in Trank’s reboot.
Fantastic Four is a film very much out of time and place in today’s market of superhero movies. Ten or fifteen years ago a studio might have been able to get away with it but not today. Audiences like to be entertained and with the competition offering much more excitement, I don’t see audiences taking to this, at all.
It was only ten years before the release of this that Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans (now Captain America) were the famous Marvel superheroes, but they decided to reboot them with a much darker twist, from Razzie winning director John Trank (Chronicle). Basically Reed Richards (Whiplash’s Miles Teller) and Ben Grimm (Billy Elliot’s Jamie Bell) have worked together on a prototype teleporter, at a science fair it attracts the attention of the director of government-sponsored research institute Baxter Foundation, Professor Franklin Storm (Reg E. Cathey). Reed is recruited to join Storm’s children, scientist Sue Storm (127 Hours’ Kate Mara) and somewhat reckless technician Johnny Storm (Chronicle’s Michael B. Jordan) to complete a “Quantum Gate”, designed by protégé Victor von Doom (Toby Kebbell). The experiment is successful and the gate can transport into a parallel dimension known as “Planet Zero”, facility supervisor Dr. Allen (Tim Blake Nelson) plans to send NASA scientists through to venture, but Reed, Johnny, Ben and Victor embark on an unsanctioned journey using the Quantum Gate to Planet Zero. On the world filled with otherworldly substances Victor causes the surface to collapse and an eruption, Victor is left behind as the landscapes breaks up, the others make it back to the shuttle, but as Sue helps to bring them back the machine explodes, the bodies of Reed, Johnny, Ben and Sue are altered on a molecular-genetic level. They have gained super-human conditions and abilities beyond their control; Reed can stretch like rubber, Sue can become invisible and generate energy forces fields, Johnny can engulf his body in flames and fly, and Ben has become a bigger rock-like creature, “The Thing”, with enhanced strength and durability. While Reed blames himself and escapes the facility, to find a cure, the others are held in confinement for study and experimentation on their conditions and abilities, it is a year later that Reed is found as a fugitive and returned. Equipped with specialised suits designed to keep up with the abilities of them, for stabilisation, control and containment, the deal Dr. Allen makes with him is if he opens another portal to Planet Zero, he will help find a cure for their conditions. Arriving in the parallel universe the explorers are shocked to discover that Victor is alive, he has also gained abilities, the power to control the elements and telekinetic abilities, he now dubs himself as “Doom” and has become vengeful, deluded and evil as he wants to destroy the Earth and recreate Planet Zero, he starts his rampage killing Dr. Allen and Professor Storm. While in the realm he has built a structure to consume the landscape of Earth, he activates it from Planet Zero, but the reunited team of Reed, Ben, Johnny and Sue confront the antagonist in a destructive battle, Doom is eventually disintegrated in his own machine and the portal is closed. In the end the four Reed, Ben, Johnny and Sue returned to Earth are rewarded for their heroics with a new base for operations by the U.S. military, they decide to use their powers to help people and adopt the name the “Fantastic Four”. Also starring Mary Rachel Dudley as Mrs. Richards, Chet Hanks as Jimmy Grimm, Mary-Pat Green as Mrs. Grimm and Dan Castellaneta as Mr. Kenny. The four stars cast as the first family of Marvel are reasonably suited, and you cannot deny that the special effects to bring their superpowers and all explosive sequences to life are fantastic, but the biggest problem is that it is full clichés and predictability, the story is silly, there are only three of four main locations in total and it is just generally underwhelming, the previous 2005 version is only slightly better than this disappointing only relatively entertaining fantasy action adventure. It won the Razzies for Worst Picture (tied with Fifty Shades of Grey) and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, and it was nominated for Worst Screen Combo for Teller, Jordan, Mara and Bell (All Four “Fantastics”) and Worst Screenplay.
