This summers Age Of Ultron took some deserved heat for being overlong, overstuffed, and over reliant on CGI spectacle.
Maybe Fantastic Four is a cursed property, or maybe just one that shouldnt be turned into a film
Theres a fundamental tonal dissonance at the heart of Fantastic Four. The awkward staging, cut rate effects, and stilted dialogue might have worked al ..
Mostly, Fantastic Four is just hard work, a reflection, one assumes, of its famously difficult production.
Not only that, its palpably boring, stretching itself unfantastically when it could have been easily trimmed by a solid 30 minutes.
It drags and lacks the charming banter and visual thrills that the Marvel verse is known to provide.

So appallingly dull that even a third act parade of exploding heads cant rouse interest, Fantastic Four may be the most minor Marvel Comics film yet.
The new film develops characters and relationships, treating its audience as grown ups, but feels a bit too casually paced.
