i always had the feeling fantastic 4 wouldnt be that great. Just something about putting Jessica Alba as a scientist/astronaut. It just didn't make sense. They should of put some one more older and some one who at least looks like they got brains other then looks. i laughed wen she said some of her lines actually.

But yeah. i agree with the reviews. This movie is nothing special.

And one more thing. If this is marvels like crowning comic book super heros. Why not get one of the best directors ever to bring them to life. Why not get some one who is actually good at doing what they do?
I guess i'll never know.
