HKFanatic's rating of the film Fantastic Four

Ignoring for a moment this "Four's" lack of fidelity to the comic book, there's at least enough to this dark and depressive film's DNA to suggest it could have been an interesting subversion of the superhero genre: what if your newfound powers weren't a blessing - but instead a horrific mutation that caused your own body to betray you? Sadly, the film as released is far too compromised to judge on its own merits.
