I wrote in my Most Re-watched Films: Part 2 that I was super obsessed with Fantastic Four (2005) when it came out. I pretty much knew the whole script (I know I was quite a sad child), so when I heard that it was being remade I was pretty darn excited.

However after watching it I can safely say that I was quite disappointed, and in my opinion I think the 2005 version is a lot better although I can now see that some of the acting is absolutely horrendous.

I found it difficult to connect with the characters; I really struggled to understand them and their choices. I've never read a Fantastic Four comic but I'm pretty sure this is nothing like what happened in the comics.
Fantastic Four (2015) Still It took a long time for the film to really get going, but it also felt like they were trying to explain everything and create relationships in about 30 seconds.
I really didn't like the film, it reminded me too much of Green Lantern (2011), which I hated.

Rating: 3/10
One Final Word: Rubbish
