The Fantastic Four (1993) (part 2 of 7)
I’m not ashamed to admit that I was a little afraid going into this one. This Fantastic Four movie is supposed to be terrible even for a Roger Corman production, which is much like saying that a film is amazingly homoerotic even for Tom Cruise. I’m told it was so bad that Marvel bought the rights back and refused to release it.
Think about that for a second. This is the same Marvel that put its stamp of approval on Reb Brown’s awful Captain America movies, as well as the cinematic disaster that bored people everywhere call Elektra. How much worse does a movie have to be before it fails the Marvel acid test? Is team Agony Booth going to end up clawing their eyes out over this one?
There’s only one way to find out.
