Fantastic Four

The Fantastic Four: a Successful Science Experiment
By Adam Blasucci 8/7/2015
Fantastic Four was a great film. It’s fun and scary. More like a science-fiction/horror film.
Michael B. Jordan was not an issue for me being The Human Torch. Skin color does not matter only the quality of the actor. I actually liked the new angle about him and Susan being half sibling. All of the actors had great chemistry.
Also the story elements from The Ultimate Fantastic Four with inter-dimensional travel updates the story nicely and inkjets reality to the out there atomic age/space race shorelines of the original comic books. The dark tone of the story gave it that modern edge the story really need. All these elements together really do make you believe this could really happen. And they still throw in references here in there. Like the flying car/The Fantastic Car reference by Reed’s teacher.
The special effects were first rate. Jamie Bell voice and attitude brings the Thing to life. CGI was better than practical makeup of approach of the original to Fantastic Four films. Making the characters younger made the characters more accessible to the audience. I would really love a sequel that explores me more about The Thing. And if they would bring back Dr. Doom and maybe add The Mole Man and subterranean and maybe Galactus and The Silver Surfer. I don’t think they should have a crossover with the X-Men. Both universes are too different and similar. In my opinion having no or low expectation really helped this film immensely.
I was pleasantly surprised with this successful science experiment of film. Making a film is not an easy thing there are always complications making a movie. So don’t read into that media/bad PR that this film had problems with its production and its director. And geeks should not get so angry until I see the finished product. Josh Trank did a good job.
