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…
Everything That's Wrong with the New Fantastic Four:
1. Feels more like a rejected pilot episode than a tentpole superhero movie
2. Too much talking
3. Too much nothing
4. Movie looks dead
5. Cast looks dead
6. They made the guy from Whiplash look bad
7. They made the guy from Fruitvale Station look bad
8. They made the girl from House of Cards look bad
9. They made Billy Elliot look bad
10. Zero chemistry
11. Where's the family?
12. Where's the teamwork?
13. Where's the fun?
14. Where's the "fantastic"?
15. Where's the humor?
16. Where's the story?
17. Where's the action?
18. Where's the…
I don’t know anything about the Fantastic Four. I’ve never seen the two movies from the last decade and I’ve never read a comic book. I liked the tone of the trailers, but the hugely negative response put me off from seeing it until now.
I guess you could say I was pleasantly surprised by this because I found it to be generally intriguing for the majority of its running time. The movie is a constant slow build, unfolding like the patterns in music Sue Storm talks about. The invention of the teleporter, the alternate dimension, the disaster that leads to the powers, the harnessing of those powers into tools; I really thought this stuff was handled in an interesting…
The Fantastic Four, one of Marvel’s better known comic series, has had a rocky history when it comes to cinematic adaptations. The movie rights were purchased from Marvel in the 80s, and a movie was made to retain the rights which was never intended to be released to the public. Then 20th Century Fox bought the rights and made the first Fantastic Four movie to be released in 2005, closely followed by sequel Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer two years later, both of which were directed by Tim Story and were successful box-office performers, but were panned by critics and fans alike. Now, Fox has rebooted the franchise under the direction of Chronicle director Josh Trank.
No where near the original movie. Not even sure it was anywhere near the actual comic book story line. The first movie I thought was good, and sure as hell didn't need a reboot. And why reboot something and make it worse. Once you take Jessica Alba out you know your destined to fail.
I was aware of the the negativity surrounding this movie but despite the critics you need to witness it for yourself. I wouldn't go as far as to describe it as shocking as so many did, I just think it was more of a let down.
The world should know by now that 2015's Fantastic Four re-boot was a steaming pile of crap. I needed to see it to make sure the reports were accurate. They were. It starts slow, builds slowly and seems like it might be heading somewhere interesting...then the final third is a hot mess. Every single scene is filled with questions. Why do that? Why is this character merciless and then merciful for no reason? Where are the big action scenes that are the backbone of any superhero film? How on earth are all these characters this boring?
The tonal shifts are not quite as jarring as they could be but the forced grittiness is so unnecessary. Fantastic Four are not a…
Terrible pacing and a forced-grim tone keep this rendition of the Fantastic Four from ever feeling "fantastic," and while it's certainly better cast and easier to sit through than the 2005 film, the story and characters never achieve anything emotionally palpable or memorable.
I was optimistic when seeing the trailer for this. I knew it wasn't going to be amazing but could be alright.
"Was it interesting?" The first half or so is a lot of preparation. A lot of clunky dialog given by characters that are trying to be unlikable.
1 out of 3.
"Was it memorable?" The second half is almost nonsensical. The tone of the movie is all over the place.
1 out of 3.
"Was it entertaining?" The pacing is a mess. The acting was alright, but not enough to really do anything.
.5 out of 3.
Starting with 1 (for classified reasons), 1 + 1 + 1 + .5 = 3.5
This is a 3 just for the last line. By now, we should know how to make a comic book movie.
Not nearly as bad as people said. Not "great" but it's solidly entertaining super-powered cinema fare. Ah, the perils of youth.
I'm gonna try this
