If Fantastic Four artist Jack Kirby were alive today he would have deplored the outright destruction of his legendary creation. Fantastic Four (2015) is easily one of the worst super-hero films of all time.  It is nearly impossible to figure out what is happening, comparable to playing four different songs at the same time.  Everything about this reboot is clueless and jumbled. Two hours of ' stream of consciousness' rambling would have been preferable. 

The Fantastic Four were always highly complex characters, this is what made the Fantastic Four comic book adventures so enjoyable. Hollywood has yet to grasp the true essence and subtle nuances of each team member. Until this is accomplished, the franchise will  never prosper, and just continue to be an outright embarrassment.

There is only way I could be compelled to watch this movie again, strap me to a chair with my eyes pried open like Malcolm McDowell in 'A Clockwork Orange'.
