In between the X-tensive and X-hausting end-of-the-world mayhem, the latest X-Men script's weak efforts at character development mostly fall flat.
This Man... This Monster is symbolic of the Marvel/Fox film rights flap with Fox trying to run the franchise into the ground with imposter FF characterizations.
Despite its baggage I had high hopes Josh Trank would deliver an exciting Fantastic Four film that would prove the naysayers wrong. Well...that didn’t happen.
It’s unlikely that we’ll ever see a film based on the 1974 team-up of The Avengers, the Fantastic Four and The Inhumans, but one can dream of the possibilities.
Josh Trank, the director of Chronicle and the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, will join the ranks of Star Wars "standalone" movie directors.
