Lee and Kirby built Marvel Comics on the foundation of the FF and it's no stretch to say this franchise could still be going strong a decade later with a better opening act.

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.

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

Some comics just shouldn't be turned in to movies...

Director Tim Story ("Barbershop") sets an uneven tempo for the embarrassingly clunky script by Michael France ("Hulk") and Mark Frost ("Storyville").

The film is made in the internet equivalent of capital letters and its simplistic morality stands out on the big screen more so than on the small page.

An opportunity squandered by Marvel, which really needs to watch its quality control more closely.

The film is affable enough, though nothing much seems to be at stake.

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

Tim Story gives the Marvel comics superheroes the Barbershop treatment.

Shows how filmmaking through market research, screenwriting by committee, and over-dependence on moviemaking technology can result in huge, colourful, loud but totally vacuous and heartless movies.

Marvel Comics continues to empty out its stable of superheroes with this entertaining tale.

Not all comic-book films have to be as weighty and angst-filled as a graphic novel. Fantastic Four is neither fantastic nor incredible, but it's entertaining nonetheless.

Fantastic it most certainly ain't.

Finally, a movie that explores what happens when a group of people who can't get along find themselves freakishly mutated by cosmic radiation!

...there is little sense of wonder or excitement in Fantastic Four. It is merely a middling contender among a surplus of superhero movies.

Aquí lo que cuenta es tener una buena bolsa de palomitas y dejarse llevar por la nostalgia del cuarteto más famoso del mundo después de Los Beatles. Sólo eso.
