This is Fantastic Four pretty much in name and broad concept only. Sure there are 4 people with roughly the same powers as in the Comic... but beyond that, the source material was pretty much ignored. As usual... that was not a good thing.
The casting was terrible. Generally these are competent actors, but they have been asked to play so much against type that it just doesn't work. Michael B. Jordan, might come the closest to pulling off a convincing Johnny Storm, but the material is so poor, one simply cannot be sure.
I don't think the writers or director have ever seen or read any Comics and all they knew about Dr. Doom was his name...
Anyway... the story is a jumbled mess. It is both cliched and jumbled all at once. Plot holes make up more of the story than actual plot. Characters are wildly inconsistent and behave in whatever fashion moves the next plot point forward rather than how they would actually behave.
Anyway... if you are fan of awful movies that are so tragically flawed that there is no redemption in them... This movie is FANTASTIC... for what it is...
And yet, this movie had the potential to be something far greater than it was. Through it all, I felt bad for the actors, none of whom did anything to deserve being in this ruination of cinema. They did their best with the script they were given, but couldn't manage to save it. They just weren't strong enough actors to attempt to carry this load of crap. The visual effects were done rather well, and may be the highlight of this film, but even that couldn't save it. The costuming was decent. Fox likes to do that "gritty, realistic, all black" nonsense, and it's on display here, as well. The movie is dark, visually and contextually. But why?
Fox seems to have once again rushed this film in order to hold onto the rights to the characters. That's fine, but in doing so, they completely ignored the source material, outside of the four scientists getting super powers thing. And whatever they did to Doctor Doom. Honestly, it's no wonder Marvel shelved the F4 title just before this was released. They didn't want their name associated with this flop. Shelving these characters in the comics for a few years until everyone forgets about this terrible flick is probably the best business strategy Marvel could have come up with. Seriously, Fox, just let this property revert to Marvel so they can put out a truly great F4 film and make the franchise relevant again.
Honestly, just avoid this movie, unless you're a glutton for punishment. I LOVE b-movies and cinematic schlock of all kinds, but this...this was a whole different level of god-awful.
And please allow my ethical comments, as I hope that America has not lost all of its deportment and civility. I wish producers of all movies would remove foul words from (especially) children's mouths. And, as candidly and as tastefully as I can put it, why is it that male genitalia are so often used as low-level slang , and often by children and women? I am sick of it and stop watching various movies and series because of it. It plagues the Netflix superhero series, like Daredevil. Listen to Karen Page and you will know what I mean. But I digress. And G.....dam needs to be dropped, too--which was used in this movie and is a staple of most superhero movies. (While we are there, for an essentially irreligious Hollywood crowd--at least in regards to traditional Judaeo-Christian practice--which in the main does not in any reverent way care at all for either Christianity or its Jesus Christ, they love to use "Jesus" and "Christ" as irreverently. How about if they stop using his name this way? If we are a pluralistic society and globally informed, then why not get with the program and curse with the name of some god from another religion? Start using political correctness in this manner. Or are the directors, producers, and actors afraid of reprisal from certain groups and religions? It's too bad. A weak movie produced by a society that is losing its soul.

It takes a different approach to the superhero flick than most of Marvels recent output so at least deserves points for trying something new. There's little in the way of bright costumes or superhero heroics - focussing more on the origin story of The Fantastic Four and the first (brief) smackdown with Dr Doom. They've played around with the origins in an effort at freshness I guess - some of it works, some of it doesn't but such is life.
As all the pieces are moved into place for a franchise, it's clear they're got an eye on future stories. Future stories that won't be told after the critical and commercial failure of this effort so those parts now feel pretty redundant. Certain characters get a little short changed in this early outing which is a shame as the cast are pretty much spot on, they just don't get enough of a chance to shine.
So as a grand, world building franchise starter, it hasn't really worked but as a minor sci-fi work that doesn't outstay it's welcome, I found it relatively entertaining.
Anyways. I bought the film as it forms part of my Marvel collection of films. Hopefully, the second film be better.
The extras are OK but a bit thin. Picture and sound are very good and a great Dolby Atmos soundtrack shines through.
