Description

You don’t get to hire a guy for his artistic vision, subvert his work, and then blame him for the result. That’s what happened with 2015’s “Fantastic Four,” or as it was stylized on so many Denny’s menus at the time, “Fant4stic.” What was originally conceived as a gross, body horror drama got reverse-engineered into a bad Avengers clone - because nobody wants action figures of The Thing who is constantly in pain. (Except us!) We’ll be talking about the continuing failures of all the Fantastic Four films this week - but we come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. Fant4stic is not good. It is, however, worth looking further into why its audacious concept didn’t (or wasn’t allowed to?) work.
