Fantastic Four - Good But Not Fantastic

I just got back from seeing Fantastic Four. If I were to compare it to Batman I would be disappointed. But, if I just wanted to rate it based on general qualities like acting, plot, special effects, etc, I would say it is good. No, it is not a knock-your-socks-off kind of movie. But it is entertaining. As far as recent comic movies, here’s my heirarchy, and how it fits, starting form best to worst.

Batman Begins
Spiderman 2
Spiderman 1
X-Men 2
X-Men 1
Fantastic Four

Now, the gulf between X1 and FF is pretty big, because X1 was really good. But FF is definitely better than some of the other comic movies, in my opinion.

You left out Elektra. Don’t you want to make it an even 10?

I can’t comment on that one. I heard that it was horrible so I completely avoided it.
