  1. It's done with an agreeable confidence and flair, the actors all fit comfortably in their roles and the effects are fun.
  2. I don't think it will seriously disappoint longtime fans, but it made me itchy as I watched it unfold in ways that the comics never did when I read them in the '60s.

    A wildly uneven, sporadically slapdash action-adventure that amuses in fits and starts.

    The release of Fantastic Four marks the beginning of the end for movies based on Marvel Comics' upper tier of characters.
  5. A comic-book movie unashamed of its roots, meaning it's unabashed about being silly, overwrought nonsense, which works to its benefit--so much so that you're almost rooting for it by the end.
  6. 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.

    From less a purist's standpoint than a seeker of serviceable junk food, this comprehensive waste of time is too bouncy to be an "Elektra" bummer, but should make Marvel mascot Stan Lee think twice about burning another lucrative bridge with unintentional hilarity.
