A superhero film that occasionally seems to poke fun at its big brothers, but at the same time just feels too cheap and bland.

The CG is really sadly bad, across the board. Ugly(!) suit of that stone guy, the rubber man (sometimes just Gert Verhulst) and the transparent Alba don't look like much either. The story is also not about anything, but I still take that with these kinds of films.

The emphasis in this film is more on the humor, unfortunately it is not that funny and it often comes across as rather sloppy and childish. One-liners often don't come across and jokes are bland and uninspired.

While the idea itself can still be fun, it just didn't turn out that great.

I was hoping a review would upgrade this movie, but it's still a poorly crafted Marvel film. The concept can be fun, just look at The Incredibles. It works if you have a strong story behind it. We've seen these things before, this movie is full of clichés. It all starts with a bad casting. Ioan Gruffudd is a boring character. we already know the workaholic scientist/team leader. Not a single surprise. Moreover, his elasticity is not immediately a fascinating talent. Jessica Alba is nice to see, but also puts little in her role. And what a beauty you are when her talent is invisibility. Chris Evans takes care of the fun in this movie. Together with Michael Chiklis, their scenes are the most captivating in this film. This Human Tour is much more fun than Captain America. Michael Chiklis is the only character that gets some effect. dr. Doom is a silly character and a real copy of Green Goblin from Spiderman.

Fantastic Four could have been fun, but it doesn't work anywhere. A little more spice in the script, a different cast and more attention to detail in the development of the characters could have made for a completely different film. Maybe someday a remake of this can work with the right people behind the wheel.
