Synopsis


Fantastic Four
Brilliant scientist Reed Richards builds a device that allows users to teleport to an alternate dimension, but an experiment involving it goes wrong and leaves him and his three teammates with unusual superpowers. The quartet are then forced to work together to battle an enemy from their past. This reboot of the iconic Marvel superhero team stars Miles Teller as Richards (who becomes Mr. Fantastic, able to bend and stretch his body into impossible shapes), Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch, whose body can erupt in flames), Kate Mara as Sue Storm (aka the Invisible Woman -- no explanation needed), and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (who is transformed into the rock monster known as The Thing). Directed by Josh Trank, who previously worked with Jordan on the superhero film Chronicle. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    Wasn't a fan from start to finish

    In this day and age of mega block buster CBM's, you'd think it would be impossible for a Comic book film to flop as poorly as Trank and company had with this God awful reboot. Yet Fox apparently wanted to outdo themselves when it came to Elektra level quality. But no one should be all that surprised since the red flags were there for anyone with 20/20 vision to see. From the poor casting choices, to the suspect director. Waiting until just before the deadline to start filming, the rumors of Fox looking for a new director right before filming and being super secretive about the film while taking forever to show a trailer once filming wrapped. The signs were there! Every 7 years Fox has to make a Fantastic Four film in order to hold on to the movie rights, otherwise it reverts back to Marvel Studios and we can actually get a good F4 film this lifetime. In other words, this reboot was the pathetic last minute movie rights grab that most Fantastic Four fans thought it would be! Save your time and money people! The story was weak, the effects were the equivalent of PS2 graphics in most parts and they screwed up Marvel's most iconic super villain Dr. Doom yet again. You actually have put in effort to make a film as terrible as this film was and Trank's Twitter rant speaks for itself. So whether it was Josh Tranks fault or Fox's fault that this film did so poorly, I couldn't care less at this point. What I do want to know is why Fox hasn't called Marvel-Disney to make a deal to give this franchise back yet! It's the only money they're likely to get for this film.

    But, it's NOT the DVD's fault! Nor are the actors to blame. It's all the director Josh Trank's fault! He took a perfectly good concept and turned into this mess. Kate Mara's Susan Storm/Invisible Woman is your stereotypical genius Goth chick who blends into the background. Miles Teller's Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic is your focused ultra-nerd, not the smartest man in the entire Marvel Universe! Jamie Bell's Ben Grimm/the Thing is nothing more than the typical muscled jock-turned-killing-machine. And Toby Kebbell's Victor von Doom is nothing more than a burnout case mashed up with a Kurt Cobain attitude who's riffing the jealousy of Antonio Salieri (from "Amadeus"). He also proclaimed that his casting of Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/the Human Torch was a "revolutionarily bold" choice. Uh...wrong. He's wasted here. Jordan's character is almost stereotypical - the hot-headed (pun intended, I'm sure) African-American guy with street cred & bad attitude. Had Mr. Trank TRULY wanted to be "revolutionary," he should've cast Jordan as Reed Richards! Imagine that! An African-American actor portraying the Super-Genius?! Jordan's talents could've truly shone! That would've been EPIC! Instead, this movie is a trainwreck from start to finish. I bought this DVD for 2 reasons: 1. I have the other, BETTER FF movies already; 2. It was on sale.

    Nice Steelbook, lackluster film.

    I had heard about the bad reviews film was getting and choose not to see this movie in the theatre. Great decision. As a comic book fan and Steelbook collector, I already knew that I was going to purchase the Blu-ray regardless. After watching I am so glad that I limited my money spent on this film to just this purchase. MEH.... I know this is a reboot and Fox was hoping to start a new franchise and possibly have a shared universe with the X-Men movies but I just cannot get into it. It feels like a waste of Michael B. Jordan's talent and Kate Mara as Sue Storm just did not do it for me. Mara is a much better actress that I saw onscreeen. Honesty, it feels as if the actors did have a great story to work with. Now the Steelbook itself it great. I love it's cover and inside and seems to represent the movie well. A must have for a comic collector and good addition to a Steelbook collection. I swear some of these other reviewers are giving it a high rating just to be funny. Not something I would recommend to anyone else. Not sure where Fox goes from here. I say give the property back to Marvel.

    So if you looked into this movie you probably know it gets horrible reviews and is treated like it is the worst movie of all time. I am a big Marvel fan and i wanted this movie to do bad so Marvel would get the rights back from Fox. I figured i would give this a chance like i do other superhero movies. This movie takes a long time for the main characters to get their powers, about an hour, then when they do get them, there is hardly any time to showcase their abilities and how they use them for good. There are not lots of cool easter eggs or comic origin references to make it fun for the true Fantastic Four fans. By far the worst part of this movie is Doctor Doom. They messed up everything about him from his origins, looks and even his powers. This is a good sci-fi horror movie, which if it wasnt a comic book movie wouldnt be that bad at all. Its worth a watch, not as bad as i thought it would be. The steelbook case itself is fantastic, has great back artwork of the fantastic four members and the title on the spine. They could have gone with a better cover design but its a nice debossed look and is good quality. Collectors Steelbook is alot better than the movie itself.

    Just Bad

    Fantastic Four is such a great comic book and yet the characters never play out well in the movies. There is just too much wrong in this movie. While I did like the concept of the team originally being used by the government for special operations, ultimately the film just drags on and on. They spent too much time on the origin story. If anything, they should have done a semi-reboot where it's assumed that the audience already knows how the group became the Fantastic Four. We've already had two previous movies to go on. Now let's focus on taking these characters to new heights and have them meet other menacing villains instead of recreating yet another lackluster portrayal of Dr. Doom. Honestly, the main reason I purchased this film was for the special steelbook edition case and because despite how bad the film is, I'm still partial to comic book films.

    I had to pick up this steelbook since I was picking up all the rest this week. (MI: Rogue Nation, Maze Runner, Scorch Trials) Let me start off by saying the five stars is for the steelbook packaging because it is great and very nice looking. The movie itself I would give maybe 2-3 stars. If you followed its release closely you would know that a lot went on behind the scenes that had the studio replacing the director and re-shooting scenes pretty close to release. The beginning of this film is awesome and I loved where it looked like it was going, then right after they get their powers it completely falls apart. I still enjoyed it for what it was knowing what had happened but if you're expecting something great then you should look elsewhere.

    Entertaining, but Flawed

    This iteration of the Fantastic Four improves on a lot over the previous two films. I like the origin focus of the film and even some of the twists on their origins. It was entertaining to see the interaction between each of the characters. I really liked The Thing in this one compared to Michael Chiklis' "Nerf-foam" version. However, the biggest knock and what probably ruins the movie for me is the implementation of Dr. Doom. Neither the old ones or the new FF films do him any justice. He does not seem formidable enough, nor does he look right. I can appreciate the desire to stray from the typical look, but he no longer remotely resembles Dr. Doom in this film.

    Not quite a hit, but still worth a watch

    While I cannot recommend this movie as a purchase for any reason other than if you are a collector of the super hero type movies, I also did not think it is as bad as it has been made out to be from other reviews I have seen. This is set up as an origin story and by the time you get to the end of the movie it feels like you did not really get to see them do much beyond form the Fantastic Four team. The last 20 minutes seems like it was just tacked on to give the movie a purpose and some action sequences and does not really fit with the rest of the movie. Still, I feel it is worth a watch as long as you go into the movie not expecting too much from it.
