Aided by largely credible special effects, the four stars of Fantastic Four manage to make their movie worth seeing and give us reason to be optimistic for a more cohesive sequel.

Fantastic Four is anything but, and should serve as an indication that maybe its time to put the brakes on the current avalanche of comic book adaptations.
August 3, 2015
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...
April 16, 2009
Director Tim Story ("Barbershop") sets an uneven tempo for the embarrassingly clunky script by Michael France ("Hulk") and Mark Frost ("Storyville").

October 18, 2008
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.
October 14, 2008
An opportunity squandered by Marvel, which really needs to watch its quality control more closely.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Four-play without any climax.

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.
July 14, 2007
A better than average comic book effort.

Tim Story gives the Marvel comics superheroes the Barbershop treatment.

June 4, 2007
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!
