Fantastic Fantastic Four

Went to see the "Fantastic Four" film tonight. One fantastic film. The fashion these days is for super heroes to be full of angst and grief for some reason or other. So it was good to see a superhero film where the people concerned actually seemed quite pleased to be able to vanish, fly, lift heavy things, squeeze under doors etc etc. Also good to see a film where those involved had the self confidence work on the basis that this good feeling and comic possibilities in the situations would be enough to carry the film, which they were.

If you are being a bit picky you could say that the final confrontation is a bit of an anti-climax and the surname of "Von Doom" is probably a bit of a giveaway for a baddy. But apart from that I'd reccommend it strongly.
