Synopsis
The script is dull, littered with clichéd catchphrases and humorless. There are barely any action scenes in the film, save the film’s climax, which looks rushed.

Story: This origin-tale tells the story of four individuals, each of whom acquires a unique and specific super-ability after teleporting themselves to an alien planet. Soon, they'll have to join forces to save the planet from destruction.

Review: The Fantastic Four have been deserving of a reboot for a while now, in full contemporary style. This film however, feels like an extended, somewhat boring preamble to the kind of action and excitement audiences deserve to see, presumably in the next film in this series.

Miles Teller is Reed Richards. More flexible than a rubber band and silly putty combined, he is also the brainiest of the lot. Michael Jordan is the volatile Johnny Storm, a giant blowtorch who has the ability to chuck fireballs at adversaries. Kate Mara essays the role of The Invisible Woman. Apart from being the female counterfoil for all the raging testosterone in the otherwise all-male gang, she rivals Mr Fantastic (Yes, that title does sound cheesy, no matter how many times repeated.) in terms of being level-headed and intelligent. Oh, and she generates force fields too in the form of giant, super-strong bubbles. Jamie Bell is The Thing, a creature who looks like he was fashioned out of a gigantic clump of parched earth. The closest superhero in terms of comparability is the Hulk. However, Thing cannot even hold a candle to the latter in terms of sheer brute force. The villain's role - that of Dr Doom - is in the film essayed by Toby Kebbell. They acquire the said superpowers after using a Quantum Gate (read: fancy teleportation device) to explore Planet Zero, which is in another dimension. Kebbell is left behind, tragically, but will ultimately confront the other four.

The script is dull, littered with cliched catchphrases (eg, "We can't change the past, but we can change the future!") and humorless. There are barely any action scenes in the film, save the film's climax, which looks rushed. Only the visual effects and Teller's performance is worthy of note. Superhero film fans can only hope that the next one will be interesting to watch.

Fantastic Four is an entertaining movie with an adventure story that explains the origins of the 4 super heros. Action sequences are not very cool and they are not upto the mark of the director. Worth watching once in theaters just for fun
