With hardly any time for New Yorkers to enjoy Ant Man another superhero film will shortly be released, the latest Fantastic Four movie. Now Directors always seem determined to give us their version of what are already much loved comic heroes and Josh Trank does not disappoint.
Each superhero film gets its verve and dash not just from directorial talent but also the childhood fantasties of said directors. Trank lets rip with Mr Fantastic (Miles Teller), the Human Torch (Michael B Jordan), Invisible woman (Kate Mara) and the Thing (Jamie Bell).
But no really good superhero film cuts the mustard without a superb villian and in this case Trank has conjured by an overhwleming Dr Doom (Toby kebbell). Now while it is always a given that the sueprheroes will win, they never look as good as they need to without great odds to battle against in the from that all important villain. Toby Kebbell delivers in spades being super imposing and scary. prepare to be horrified and then relieved as just ic is finally done.
