Finally Saw: Fantastic Four

Yes, it's taken me a while, but I finally saw the first Fantastic Four movie. It felt to me like a throwback to the larger than life comic movies we used to see before the recent round of great flicks (X-Men, Spiderman, Batman, etc). The one thing that irked me was that there wasn't a real sense of danger. Who is the villain? Oh, this guy. Dr. Doom. What does he want to do? Beats me, let's just stop him.

Don't get me wrong, it's a fun movie. There were parts I actually laughed out loud. And I loved Stan Lee's cameo. Just don't expect too much from it. It's a fine way to waste a rainy Sunday afternoon.
