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.

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

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.

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.

If the equally naive Superman were released today, would it receive a similarly cold reception?

[A]part from some undeniably slick effects ... the wow factor in this movie is surprisingly minute ... [O]nly Julian McMahon's nefarious psycho, Dr. Doom, shows real promise here.

Light, brisk, fun, daring, then an awesome bridge crash scene! Then it's down hill from there. Still, just barely above average.

Not a great film but a good opening chapter... a film about a superhero family that's actually a family-friendly superhero film.

The FF are unpretentious and nerdy and they bicker with each other, giving the film a loose, buoyant quality in between action sequences.

No disgrace, but it's far from a classic either.

It puts a smile on your face and you can't resist the charming nature of the film.

About 100 times more enjoyable than Daredevil.

The result is hardly fantastic, but it is quite a lot of fun.

With a sort of backdoor approach to superherodom, another comic strip from the minds of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby hits the celluloid.

Tim Story's screen adaptation of the Marvel comic is cheesy in production values; it's the clash of personalities that makes the film in any way fantastic.

Heaven forbid a summer blockbuster embrace its popcorn-munching appeal and rescue the industry from the 2005 box office slump.
