Fantastic Four Reboot Released To Tepid Reception

Aug 08

An anonymous reader writes: Another month, another superhero movie based on the Marvel universe. Today marked the release of Fantastic Four, an attempt to reboot a film franchise that did poorly in the theaters as recently as 2007. This isn’t the same crew that’s been pushing out blockbuster after blockbuster, though — it’s the crew that keeps releasing mediocre X-Men flicks. From early reviews, it looks like we can expect to see another reboot in 2025. Rolling Stone calls it “the cinematic equivalent of malware,” saying that even a solid cast of actors couldn’t save it from failure. A.V. Club says it “struggles to fill out its relatively brief runtime,” the NY Times says even its special effects aren’t up to snuff.

Those who have seen it, what did you think?
