As I’ve stated before, I’m a fan of Fantastic Four. So you probably wouldn’t be surprise that my least favorite adaptation is the FF movies. The first Fantastic Four movie that I saw was the 2005 movie and the sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. There was a third film, Fantastic Four reboot from 2015. They were all terrible. I didn’t even bother to see the third one, but it’s pretty clear that it wasn’t good. According to reviews I was correct to avoid it.
If I had to pick a character in these movies that was the worst it has to be Ben Grim. Played by Michael Chiklis and then Jamie Bell, the suits for the Thing was terrible. To be fair it was always going to be difficult to render The Thing well. The Thing looks ridiculous and is clearly a costume. For some reason they would rather use costumes instead of CGI. The Hulk has been CGI for a while (to various degree of success). The Thing is suppose to be made out of rock but since it’s a costume it look soft. It was all terrible. Hopefully, now that FF is directly under Marvel’s control they’ll get it right.
