    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    They take on special powers that the filmmakers are incapable of making interesting, partly because the characters are ciphers, and partly because the story is listless and uninventive. show more

    There's nothing terribly fantastic about this ho-hum futuristic foray. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    It needed a star like Clooney at its center, and a character actor like Alan Rickman as Dr. Doom. You don't expect realism from a comic-book movie, but you do want the characters to seem larger than life. show more

    In a summer of low movie expectations and worse results, Fantastic Four is a not-so-bad mindless bit of camp escapism that doesn't try to eclipse its dime-store comic book roots. show more
