Shirley Adams spends her days caring for her disabled son, Donovan - he was shot in the back of the neck on his way home from school one afternoon over a year ago. Since then the Adams family has lost all their worldly possessions to medical bills. Shirley has no money, no job and no husband - he left. The shooter is one of Donovan's childhood friends. Her reaction to the betrayal is so overwhelming that she chooses not to tell Donovan in fear of further damaging his already unstable emotional state. Determined to make a change in their lives, Shirley actively decides to embrace their new circumstances, hoping that Donovan will follow her example.

"Fantastic Four" is the story of a genius young scientist who jump starts a space program. With the help of his muscle bound best friend, he'll join forces with a former colleague and a hothead to form the Fantastic Four. It becomes obvious as to who their threat is, when an evil villain rises up on scene. Honestly, I can't decide which "Fantastic Four" adaptation I like/hate more. There are some major differences in how each film was approached (2005 vs. 2015), and neither leave a positive impression for the franchise. I recommend staying away from both films, but in order to back up my critique, let's continue.What I liked about this film (term used lightly) is the relaxed, cartoon vibe that works about half the time. I feel like this is the kind of movie you can plop your two year old in front of, and he/she will have plenty of fun with the film. Take that as a good or bad thing, but that's how it is. I won't lie, I giggled a few times, but at a point, it was just so cheesy and illogical that it made it a negative aspect for the movie.Oh my, the actors in this movie. The talent in this movie wasn't the strongest, and it definitely showed on more than one occasion. None of the actors are downright awful by any means, but no one really showed why they belonged here. Ioan Gruffudd was alright as the lead, but didn't really do much as the star of the film. Jessica Alba was actually laughable and cringe worthy at times, while Chris Evans came off as a jackass who didn't learn anything in the end. Michael Chiklis didn't have to be good, as he was in an ugly costume for 80% of the film, and Julian McMahon was wasted as a villain. Big names don't lead to big results, but rather, can lead to big flops. The chemistry was alright, but nothing noticeable. The practical effects in this movie actually worked pretty decently, but the CGI looked pretty bad. I understand the time period in which this movie was made, but it relies on CGI at times, which can ultimately be a negative. It's cool to see actual cars explode or real sparks flying everywhere, but it looks very off when Reed Richards is stretching around like a maniac. The story is nearly absent, the pacing is a joke, and the dialogue is bland. All three of these are poorly executed, and it makes it feel like less effort was put into writing this movie than Josh Trank's version (at least you saw the effort in that one). The story moved at a pace so fast that you barely knew what was happening and it was all over the place. I had no emotional gravity to the situation, which means I could care less as to what happened. The dialogue was boring and was a pointless way to advance the story. In the end, this was a pretty disappointing film. I only watched it because of its Netflix instant watch release, but I highly recommend avoiding even that.
