Dove Review

In the latest installment of Fantastic Four, our heroes face a new opponent bent on destroying earth and also reacquaint themselves with an old foe. Action abounds in this exciting adventure as do the product placements. In fact, the film seems to poke a little fun at its own expense by placing many of the logos on a suggested new design of their classic costumes.

Parents should look closely at the content descriptions below as there are some things that may warrant discussion after the film. But, all in all, this is a much more family friendly adventure than the first episode.
