The movie stars: Jamie Bell, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller and Toby Kebbell. We’ve posted blurbs from a couple of the critics, below.

Clark Collis at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a very mediocre 50 score, saying: “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.”

Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 50 grade. He said: “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.”

Brian Lowry from Variety, gave it a 50 grade, stating: “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.”

Alonso Duralde from TheWrap, gave it a 49 score, stating: “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.”

Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 38 score. He said: “A lightweight and basically unnecessary attempt to once again bring some cinematic life to one of the lesser teams in the Marvel Universe.”

Matt Zoller Seitz over at, gave it a 38 grade, saying: “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.”
