    Fantastic Four

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film doesn't hold together. It feels like a marble sculpture that someone attempted to finish with paper mache, that is more mache than anything else.
    You can clearly see, fleetingly, how good this film could have been; a comic book movie like no other. A handful of scenes and the one after visiting the other dimension, most notably, are truly inspired. But soon after this, the whole thing just starts to unravel. Im sad to say a patchwork quilt of a movie, part silk, mostly burlap.

    ★★★½

    A great film, let down, crucially, by the cinematography/choreography of the fight scenes. Every performance is spot on. It just ends up not being the full package.
