I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
Change is coming.
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.
I am baffled by the incredibly bad reception the newest incarnation of Fantastic Four has been getting! The old ones were watchable but the heavy dose of forced childish humor and lack of a compelling story made them forgettable at best. With Josh Trank taking over the baton and this ensemble of talented young actors united, my curiosity had certainly spiked. “Joyless”, “tedious” and “dull” have been used by many to describe the new Fantastic Four and I guess I just watched a completely different movie because I don’t agree at all. First, let me start with what I liked the most here: the horror feel. Trank is a big David Cronenberg fan and the fact he made the transformations…
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…
Started off interestingly enough with a familiar comic book feel but quickly descends into a dark tension free mood piece and the ending felt rushed and decidedly flat with little action, no excitement and pretty poor engagement between the leads- just about held my attention on a long flight
Well, at least Fox tried.
And it failed.
By no means is it the Fantastic Four I grew up reading but I don't think it was the abortion that everyone made it out to be.
Al escuchar que se hará un reboot de Fantastic Four esperas una película que experimente algo nuevo, llena de acción y sea fantástica dejando atrás a las dos películas anteriores. Todo eso queda solamente en el aire, porque en esta no es así.
Fantastic Four llega sin ningún desarrollo, teniendo un inicio forzado y un tercer acto que te deja con un mal sabor de boca. Claro, habrá momentos buenos que te harán despertar y sentir que va a comenzar todo, pero decae nuevamente.
Cuando se habla de Superhéroes lo primero que deseas ver es acción, haciendo una gran batalla contra el villano, pero en esta película la "acción" llega al final, litera.
Los efectos especiales fueron perjudicados por las…
There comes a point in Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" when the film just seems to give up. After introducing the young people who will go on to form the titular four in ways that feels both interesting and contemporary, the comic book-inspired film loses any goodwill it has generated with its distracting leaps of story logic, lapses in performance quality, and a particularly bad wig. Trank's attempted epic surrenders any promise it had to second and third acts that move from somewhat watchable to off-putting.
A reboot focusing on Marvel's famous scientists with even more famous superpowers, Trank's film places the four in a dour world of military might that allows teens to hijack teleportation machines and send themselves to…
If it would let me give this zero stars, I would.
In the end, I didn't find it to be irredeemable. It's clear that Trank wasn't ready for this project, but the studio interference only hindered it further. This new Fantastic Four isn't utter garbage, but it sure isn't pretty.
I defended this movie for so long and to everyone I knew before it came out in theaters. I thought there was no way the guy who did "Chronicle" and a young cast this talented could produce anything less than stellar.
Thanks to everyone involved for making me look like a fucking fool.
We all have them....here are mine.
Commence the shame.

Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
