  • James Berardinelli

    Perhaps surprisingly, it's no better or worse that the other superhero movies of 2015.

    At first, it’s fun and shiny, then you’re left with a crumpled mess on the floor.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    It's overstating things to say the stars of Fantastic Four are Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell, because I can't remember the last time four actors appeared less invested in a movie for which they've teamed up.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    Apparently Fantastic Four doesn’t want to be another dumb superhero action flick, but try as they might to turn it into a movingly realistic drama, director Josh Trank and a pair of screenwriters never succeed, creating instead a comic book movie that is bizarrely short on humour and action.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Clark Collis

    In short, this Josh Trank-directed reboot had a very low hurdle to overcome to become the best FF movie so far. The most fantastical aspect of the movie is that it may not achieve that goal.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    If Fantastic Four is pleasantly different in its introductory segment, once those super powers kick in, the whole film goes into a more standard gear.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Michael Ordoña

    Is it a home run? No. But at this point, comic fans are just happy to see Fox play error-free ball with their Marvel adaptations, and Fantastic Four mostly qualifies.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Neither the disaster the fanboy nation seems to be itching to attack nor a significant improvement over the Tim Story movies, Fantastic Four seems doomed to please no one.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Ultimately, Fox’s stab at reviving one of its inherited Marvel properties feels less like a blockbuster for this age of comics-oriented tentpoles than it does another also-ran — not an embarrassment, but an experiment that didn’t gel.

    Variety Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Director Josh Trank, whose debut feature “Chronicle” put a smart new spin on superhero tropes, has assembled a quartet of engaging, charismatic performers and stranded them in a miasma of exposition and set-up that sinks the movie.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    It’s shockingly humorless and glacially slow for a film featuring a bendy boy genius, an invisible woman, a human torch, and a talking pile of stones.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The impressive young cast -- is mostly wasted. Teller and company, despite their proven talents, are given little of depth to do and forced to spout dialog that ranges from clunky to ridiculous.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The model here isn't adventure pulp. It's dystopian Y.A., junked up with scenes of medical horror too scary for kids and too unpleasant to be enjoyed by anyone.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    The film is almost all build-up, though any mounting sense of excitement is dispelled by the monotonously downbeat tone and the cast’s conspicuous lack of chemistry. Nobody looks like they’re having fun, and the gloom is infectious.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Ali Plumb

    As an origin story that’s all origins and no story, there’s a hollow, stale feeling to this occasionally admirable attempt to Nolanise Marvel’s dysfunctional family.

    Empire Full Review
  • James Mottram

    Ponderous, pretentious and, most damning of all, just not much fun.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    The cast are some of the most promising actors of their generation, but what chemistry there is between them is swept away by wave after wave of expository dialogue and ludicrous exclamation.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    This reboot of the Marvel superhero franchise is a film of two halves: the first likeable and fun, the second tiresome and loud.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

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

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    There are no people to watch in Fantastic Four, only collections of character traits and attitudes brought fitfully to life by actors who might've mistakenly thought they were hitching a ride on the superhero movie gravy train by signing up for this misfire.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    A superhero film with no power and worse special effects that attempts to rewrite a story that's yet to be told effectively.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    This Fantastic Four, directed by Josh Trank from a script he wrote with Simon Kinberg and Jeremy Slater, feels less like a tale of superhero beginnings than like a very long precredit opening sequence.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    A good cast led by Miles Teller gets swallowed up in a narrative that grows progressively more muddled and tedious.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Fantastic Four is so mediocre that its title seems like a violation of truth in advertising laws.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    This is the Fantastic Four. Maybe someday they'll get to act like it.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The special effects look cheap, the acting is wooden, and the shouted dialogue consists largely of throwaway action-movie cliches (“Let’s do this”) and B-movie sci-fi jargon (“His bioenergy is off the charts!”).

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    An unfortunate movie that does an embarrassing disservice to the decades-old property and is a frightful waste of all the talent involved.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    From Miles Teller to Kate Mara to Reg E. Cathey, everyone on screen in Fantastic Four speaks in a flat, earnest monotone with a determinedly low-keyed air bordering on openly not giving a rip.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Eric Henderson

    It adds more grist for the mill to the notion that studios don't hit the big red "reboot" button in any other state than a panic.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s a joyless relaunch/re-imaging.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Fantastic Four is so bereft of all the things we expect from a superhero movie — humor, excitement, adventure, awe — that it plays like a drawn-out pilot episode for an upcoming TV series no one would ever watch again.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    In turning his back on the familiar tropes of blockbuster comic book movies, Trank doesn't have a clear new identity for Fantastic Four to distinguish itself with, and the result is a movie rich with possibilities, but trapped in the basic structure of a superhero movie, with no idea of how to wholly circumvent traditional expectations.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Someone forgot to put anything fantastic into Fantastic Four.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A sense of heaviness, gloom and complete disappointment settles in during the second half, as the mundane set-up results in no dramatic or sensory dividends whatsoever.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Given the level of talent involved both in front of and behind the camera, nobody should feel much joy — no anti-tentpole schadenfreude or blockbuster-busting righteousness — to discover that the latest Fantastic Four film is a catastrophe

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The latest reboot of the Fantastic Four — the cinematic equivalent of malware — is worse than worthless.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A lousy script, unfocused direction, incoherent editing, shockingly terrible special effects — and, probably, panicked studio executives — have left its four talented stars muddling through a dull superhero origin story with zero payoff.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe Walsh

    With a weak structure and little chemistry, Fantastic Four proves itself to be a franchise that was better off lost in space.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Ultimately, what Fantastic Four delivers is change for change’s sake, rather than change for the better.

    Steer clear, Friends of Ol’ Marvel!
