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.

Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times

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

If you would like to admire the awfulness of Fantastic Four without actually having to sit through it--or if you've already seen the movie and are still reeling from the experience--read on.

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.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

The special effects are cheesy, the acting perfunctory, the plotting pallid.

As flawed as it was when it was first released in the 2005, the original film still stuck to the tried-and-true formula of quickly getting the origin story out of the way to get to the good stuff: the characters and the action.

Laughably cheesy, bordering on Zardoz levels of simplicity.

It's not wholesale terrible -- just depressingly mediocre, and at a certain point you sort of start wishing it WERE definitively terrible, because that would at least make it more entertaining or give it a certain strange raison d'etre.

It's a case of good start, flat middle and a curiously bad nothing-at-stake finish.

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?

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

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
