Four young outsiders teleport to a dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
Now can you please return the Fantastic Four back to Marvel?
If I'm being honest, I had more fun eating the entire Denny's Fantastic Four menu.
-The Fantastic Four is unique among comic-book heroes because they’re a family. This movie whiffs on that concept completely. Reed and Ben are buddies, but along the way they grow apart. Reed seems to like Sue in the way that teen boys pine for beautiful, unattainable women, but their relationship never goes any farther than that. And Johnny and Sue, who are brother and sister, barely seem to know each other at all. There isn't a single scene of their home lives with their enigmatic father Franklin (or, for that matter, almost *any* scenes outside the maze of laboratories, hospitals, and army bases…
The story sucks.
The acting sucks.
The script sucks.
The dialogue sucks.
The action sucks.
The direction sucks.
The villain really sucks. Seriously, this is a flat out embarrassment for Dr. Doom who is actually a great villain. It's disgusting how much disservice this movie does to him.
The cinematography is okay, that's the one somewhat positive thing I can say about this movie.
I honestly can't believe what I just saw. This movie is so bad that I'm shocked it got released in theaters. The studios should have seriously sat down watched the final product. I'm convinced they didn't do so because I feel as though they would have stopped this movie from entering theaters for the sake of humanity.
Yes, Fantastic 4 really is that bad. I guess it's better than Pixels, so there's that lol.
Ok I feel like a huge douchebag right now. To keep a somewhat long explanation short, I just got done seeing Fantastic Four for the second time. Here I was about 12 hours ago ripping this movie to shreds and I'm here now to admit I was wrong. F4 is far from the trainwreck most people are making it out to be (including myself after my first watch).
I went into this movie with a horrible attitude yesterday. All of the continuous negative buzz I had been hearing, even months before this came out had me riding shotgun on the hate train. Going in I wanted the hate this movie because that's what everyone else was doing and I ultimately…
The new Fantastic Four has finally arrived. Eight years after the last movie and after the reboot of the X-Men movies, Fox is trying to bring back Marvel’s first superhero team. So, does it deliver? When they announced it, people were skeptical. When the also announced the cast, people were more than afraid for this movie, as all the cast was younger than their comic counterparts, plus there were those big “problems” with Sue being white and Johnny being black and Dr. Doom being a blogger or a hacker. And would this new Fantastic Four be as silly and full of weak jokes as the last ones? All this questions and more were answered.
This new origin story is different…
I was sick of all the haters on this movie.
Everyone bitching and moaning over the cast "too young", "black human torch", "who are these guys" (seriously?). I was so optimistic. Trank has proven he's been good in the past. The whole cast has shown to be great at one stage or another (I thought the cast was stellar).
I was so certain the haters would be eating their words. Fantastic Four was going to be awesome right? Fox is on a good run with X-Men. These actors & director are great. What could go wrong?
Well... you guys got your wish.
So fucking disappointing. :(
A waste of time disaster.
The first time I've watched this movie I thought it wasn't sooo bad, I had fun while watching it. But now I see it's just bad...
At least it's 50 minutes shorter than most superhero films these days.....
"One Year Later"
What a total drop off in quality from one scene to the next. The reshoots or whatever could not be more obvious. Just torches what was until then a decent origin story. So bad I don't even give it points for the decent start.
Wow. So, yeah. This thing is a mess. Which is kind of a shame, because the design and visuals of this film are fantastic (oh god, seriously, no pun intended). The Thing looks great, and so does Doom. The other dimension is really fascinating, and both of the large machines used to get there look like the perfect combination of stylish and actually functional, as do the team's quasi-space suits. It's a bold look, and the cinematography is actually very crisp and expressive. (Not everything looks that good, though. The Human Torch, especially during the flying scenes, looks particularly awful, like the VFX team had about two days to design and render the effect, and Mr. Fantastic's stretching doesn't fare…
What an odd, joyless superhero film. It's disjointed and lifeless, somehow crawling along without energy or action. It's important to challenge the conventions of genre and to try to make films that are introspective or contemplative much like Batman Begins or The Dark Knight, but this is miserable. I'm curious to know how much of this was brought on by the considerable behind the scenes creative friction and numerous rewrites/edits/changes. What was the original vision for the film and was it more cohesive or engaging than this?
Didn't think it could get more disappointing. I was wrong (see review other F4 films).
nothing fucking happened except Miles Teller growing a small sweaty beard
somehow this managed to be even worse than I expected. it literally made no sense whatsoever. I am very fond of jamie bell and I really like michael b. jordan so I feel like they deserve 1.5 stars but apart from that, nah. not good.
There are two things I like the most in this life:
Horror Movies and Comic Books, in that order.
I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
