Consensus: Dull and downbeat, this Fantastic Four proves a woefully misguided attempt to translate a classic comic series without the humor, joy, or colorful thrills that made it great.

"Fantastic Four" is a profound mess. It's not fun. It's not exciting. It's far from action-packed. And it's most certainly not fantastic.

The newest iteration of Stan Lee and Joltin' Jack Kirby's classic superheroes plays like some misguided cross between an Eighties Afterschool Special and a failed WB tween-heartthrob outing sans the emotional depth.

College Movie Review

Its talented cast is wasted in a big lead-up to a whole bunch of nothing.

Flavorwire

A poorly constructed, ineptly executed, flatfooted piece of Branded Product that plays as though it were written by a piece of software fed every superhero movie script to date and instructed to synthesize them.

The latest iteration of "Fantastic Four" is far from what its name suggests. Profoundly uninteresting, it hits all the beats of the standard superhero movie, but provides nothing in the way of imagination or magic.

Nick Levine
NME

A horribly botched reboot that squanders a talented young cast.

A lightweight and basically unnecessary attempt to once again bring some cinematic life to one of the lesser teams in the Marvel Universe.

Laughably cheesy, bordering on Zardoz levels of simplicity.

You've got to hand it to Josh Trank for making a movie that fails in almost every way. Fantastic Four is just frustrating because you can see hints of something interesting, but without the knowledge to build upon those ideas.

Unfortunately for everyone involved and especially the audience, the creators of this reboot had no idea what the F4 stand for, or what their stories should be… More

"Fantastic 4" is more a fantastic two-and-a-half. The rest just sucks.

Shocked this got such low ratings. Although it's far from perfect, I liked seeing the less flashy origin story without all the "camp". I would… More

Hmm not the summer superhero Blockbuster that it aspired to be. Despite the stellar cast of Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, and Kate Mara, the story is hokey… More

Sure, there was potential, but there's just no coming back from that butchered interpretation of Dr. Doom. Who thought that was a good idea?
