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 scientists teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. They must now use these abilities to save the world 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…
With all the negativity surrounding the production from the earliest stages, I went into FANTASTIC FOUR hoping for a triumph over the odds. And in a perverse way, I guess it is, but not in the manner I'd hoped. See, with all the intense negativity surrounding this production from even the early stages, if there was one thing I didn't imagine would be possible, it was that FANTASTIC FOUR could possibly disappoint me. And yet, somehow, it did.
I'll try to explain. The most disarming thing about this is that, for the first 40 minutes or so, this is a freaking GREAT movie. Like, me open-mouthed stunned, sitting in the cinema thinking, "Oh my God, they pulled it off. This…
Stuff happened, but I don't know why.
You don't have to do this if you don't want to, Victor. pleas
Soulless, lifeless, passionless, effortless, emotionless - all five words perfectly describe Josh Trank's Fantastic Four, possibly the most inept take on the superhero genre that I have seen since Zack Snyder's Man of Steel came along. Superhero films may not be my general fare but I do enjoy certain entries into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I admittedly love The Dark Knight and the Ultimate Cut of Watchmen. This isn't putting me completely off superhero films but it certainly is something worth noting as being a perfect example of everything a superhero film can do wrong.
Where's the sense of character? It really feels as if there's no breath of soul placed into what made these characters the Fantastic Four…

This was worse than I expected. Also I don't really understand the choice to finally introduce the villain when there's only 15 minutes left in the movie.
After hearing all the negative hype about this movie, I was expecting it to be a lot worse than it was. There were actually enjoyable elements in it. I liked how the tone was darker than the average comic book movie. The beginning starts out promising.
Then the minutes start to go by and little to nothing happens. The characters were flat and boring, and so was the acting. I'd be OK with that as long as the film had something else going for it, but it didn't. It was just focusing on these characters who had no chemistry together, who didn't seem like friends, just like actors pretending to be friends. None of the relationships had any depth. Reed…
Όχι, όχι, όχι, όχι, όχι και πάλι όχι. Δεν υπήρχε απολύτως κανένας λόγος να βγάλουν αυτήν την ταινία, πραγματικά. Η αρχή ήταν βαρετή, αλλά λέω ότι θα φτιάξει στην τελική μάχη, αλλά άμα δε... Τρομερό fail λέμε. Κι οι ηθοποιοί ήταν χάλια, παρ' όλο που τους έχω δει όλους αλλού κι ήταν πολύ καλοί. Και θα βγάλουν και δεύτερη συνέχεια;;; Χαχαχαχαχαχα!!!! Μην κάνετε reboot τόσο νωρίς, ρε παιδιά, ακόμα και το νήπιο έχει δει τις άλλες δύο, που ήταν χίλιες φορές καλύτερες από αυτό το πράγμα που είδα σήμερα!!!
Terrible movie. I have loved all Marvel movies that I have watched; until this one. I already knew it would be bad, and yet it was worse than I thought. It builds up the whole movie for there to be a measly 1 minute fight scene at the end.
I'm not yet willing to completely write off Trank as a storyteller, but holy jeez this movie failed. It feels like the worst example yet of a studio utterly not trusting the people they've hired to do good work, and maybe the saddest part is how cynical it will inevitably leave all the young talent involved. It's certainly not all bad, and a good portion of the bad is actually just thoroughly mediocre -- an unforgivable sin with Marvel casually dropping stuff like Ant-Man -- but man, the bad stuff is bad, with a depressing lack of energy that just makes you want to stop watching. I firmly believe that Trank'll be back, but only after he finds a way to make peace with God and Stan Lee.
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
Leave me suggestions in the comments. Note: comic characters are not ALWAYS superheroes. Note #2: pre-existing characters only. No Unbreakable…
