If you need someone or something moved quickly, Frank Martin is your man.  This former Special Ops soldier has moved to France and now works as a freelance driver for big spending criminals.  His illicit career survives by strict adherence to rules, but when he breaks two of the rules he finds himself the target of a human trafficking ring.

It's been 20 years since Roger Corman first made (but never released) the world's first Fantastic Four film, and now we get our fourth.  Gone is the humor of the Tim Story duology; instead, Chronicle director Josh Trank created a grim and gritty version of Marvel's First Family, more based on the Ultimate Comics version than any other. But behind the scenes squabbles and internet gossip led to this movie's record low audience and critic ratings. Can this film be, if not Fantastic, any good at all? Join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob to find out!
