The Fantastic Four

Not half as bad as I had expected it to be. Mr. Fantastic's effects, although the best to date, are still implausible looking. Not that it was any different in the comic. Ioan Gruffudd is not quite Ivy League enough to be Reed Richards although the Torch and the Thing were perfectly fine. But what to say of the fourth FF? FFS, that's what. Jessica Alba has a lot of vim, but vim will not carry the scene. Dr. Doom was watered down in the effort to make him relevant to the concerns of today or some such chicanery but he failed his super-villain entrance exam. "Your armor must be this cool to be admitted to the super-villain lounge."
