I must confess that I haven't seen all of it,
but what I did, well. I thought it was kind of
cheesy, I didn't think the acting was
especially great, and I thought the special
effects were mostly not good. And I thought the
costume for the Thing was just horrific, at
least compared to the comics I've read. The
plot didn't seem to be anything special, and in
fact, there didn't even seem to be much of one.
There wasn't any real emotion in it, aside from
an awkward, embarrassing to watch romance
between Reed and Sue. Generally, I just really
didn't think it was a labor of love and craft
on the level of Spider-man 2 or Batman Begins,
sticking to the roots of the comic book but
still being fresh and exciting and funny and
entertaining. Fantastic Four felt like
pre-packaged junk food that looks flashy but
doesn't actually even taste all that good.
That's as good an assessment as I can give,
without watching it again.
The guy who played the Human Torch was okay,
