I get that this isn't the movie anyone ask for. Everyone is so concerned with continuity, and chocked up in their own racism about johnny, that they basically doomed this movie before it even came out. To tell you the truth, most of the bad comments on this movie are coming from people who DIDNT EVEN SEE IT!
Ok, now I personally was never a fan of The Fantastic 4, comic book or otherwise. Aside from the Human Torch and The Thing, the other 2 powers are just stupid and pointless to me.
But; this I must admit was pretty fricken awesome, seeing Reed in action was bad ass, and not as bland as the other 2 movies before it. I'm sure eventually more and more people will be like me and see it out of curiosity just to know what all the fuss is about, and like me will realize that this movie is in no way, shape, or form a bad movie.
Ultimately you're gonna have to see the movie yourself to make the decision, but one suggestion I will make, is to go at it with an open mind, and see this as an original movie, not some "reboot" or comic book movie, because if you are gonna constantly compare to the comics, you will always be disappointed.
p.s. GIVE BEN SOME DAMN PANTS!!!
