Fantastic Four

The latest incarnation isn't perfect -- hell, Ant-Man was better, after all -- but it sure isn't the flop being described by critics.

It's a solid origin story, even if this origin is different than the comic book story first told half a century ago.

Fantastic Four gives us solid character backstory, slightly better than average special effects, and a powerful villain to overcome. It fails  to provide in-depth character development, forces team chemistry, and cheats the audience out of the comic-book style action it came to see.
