Fantastic Four is actually very true to its source material - often literally so - but generally misses the spirit entirely.

No doubt Roger Corman's version was worse, but it was probably more entertaining.

The really good superhero movies, like Superman, SpiderMan 2 and Batman Begins, leave Fantastic Four so far behind that the movie should almost be ashamed to show itself in the same theaters.

This movie is more like a B-grade comic book adaptation than the A-list production it should have been.

Fantastic Four is terribly miscast. It's poorly written, visually uninteresting, and worst of all, boring. The film drags considerably. There are huge gaps without any action and it brings the pacing to an unbearable crawl.

A movie about depressed superheroes trying to become unsuper is as boring as it sounds.

...too bouncy to be an Elektra bummer, but should make Marvel mascot Stan Lee think twice about burning another lucrative bridge with unintentional hilarity.

All-talk, no-action superhero flick is a dull, drab mess of shallow plots, dull characters and bland effects.

Bland performances throughout. And really, who wants to make Jessica Alba the invisible girl? What a bad idea. I want her to be visible at all times.

It's hard to tell if the other actors are awful or if it's the script.

Let's hope the follow-ups turn out to be better -- they could hardly be worse.

The new Fantastic Four might have been palatable if we hadn't already met a certain wall crawler or Caped Crusader on screen.

A wasted opportunity to breathe fresh life into the Marvel universe's long-stodgy elder statesmen.

After the recent crop of enjoyable superhero movies, this is just an embarassment.

Tim Story gives the Marvel comics superheroes the Barbershop treatment.

Everything about it bears the stench of amateurs, from the unspectacular special effects to the sitcom-lame dialogue to the butchered storyline.

So bad it takes points away from BATMAN BEGINS.

Low indeed have Marvel's fortunes sunk when this is the best they can send against their archrival's superior Batman Begins.
