FANTASTIC FOUR

For the first two thirds, this movie wasn’t fantastic but it wasn’t the bomb we all heard about. It was a typical origin story with a slow pace and dark tone. But then the final act happened and I can understand why the director blasted the studio on Twitter…it reportedly reshot the ending. Whatever the original finale was, it couldn’t have been as bad as this. Characters act out of character…"plot points" are shouted out in a effort to make what we are watching coherent…and really bad special effects help torpedo the movie and apparently this version of the franchise. I liked the direction they were trying with this "4", unfortunately that direction led the film off a cliff. Wish it sucked right out of the gate instead of having potential for an hour.
