Caved and saw Fantastic Four. It is the cheap night, so I was going to the theater anyway. The most insulting thing is the promise. You can't help but feel like its not a whole movie. The actors do a fine job before they get their abilities. And then after they become tropes who spout exposition and tired genre lines. The special effects weren't bad, probably could be better, but they weren't used very compellingly. Not many action scenes to speak and the climax seems too easily and/or quickly resolved. It itched a part of my brain though that I want to see a director's cut just to see if a few added scenes could actually add some narrative weight to the post-powers segment of the movie.
