    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The perfect summer movie, that is if you're eight years old or under. For the rest of us, the sequel to the first "Fantastic Four" that miraculously amassed more than $150 million in 2005, is a plotless, brainless, witless bore. show more

    Doesn't quite live up to the billing, but it improves mightily on the original. And the superhero family can thank its new addition for the upgrade. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Like its predecessor, this is a basic bungalow of a flick, where low-maintenance superheroes take their ease and you can pay your (dis)respects painlessly enough. In short, okay to visit, wouldn't want to live there. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    When will the people who adapt comic books into films realize that less can be so much more? show more
