    Too bad Fox will be stubborn about this instead of making a new shared deal with Marvel.

    I want Doom vs The Avengers.

    Work a deal so we can get the DREAM movie.... Avengers vs X-Men. You put Singer on that shit and its friggen gold. (Last year Friege actually applauded X-Men : Days of Future Past and praised the film so he could wanna do a cool ass Avengers vs X-Men film.

    And with a separate studio in charge of the X-Men, maybe they wouldn't be the designated villains of the piece.

    I can't comment on the quality because I had a bad vibe about it even before the reviews came in, so will wait for the blu-ray at best. But I got curious and decided to compare on Rotten Tomatoes with other critically panned comic based movies, as it seems to be a consistent 9% even as new reviews come in (only counting movies with 100+ reviews, hence no Man-Thing): Batman and Robin: 11%, Catwoman: 9%, Elektra:10% (I actually liked this one), Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 17%, Jonah Hex: 12%. So one tie, the rest better received by critics.

    Hopefully with a better plot than the comic version.

    So in other words It's like the GL movie all over again. Watch as Fox announces that all future FF movie sequels will get canned in the same way Sony canned all SM's spin-offs.

    It's kinda weird, though—the overall consensus is that it's bad, hence the low percent, but most of the reviews are actually more mixed, like "there's the hint of a good movie in here, but they failed" rather than "this is unwatchable dreck." Doesn't change anything at the end of the day, but it does show that a flawed film can end up with a lower score than a train wreck.

    Default Holy Crap it was bad

    Believe the bad hype, folks. Just got out from seeing it and -- oh man, Fox has shot themselves in the HEAD with this one.

    We had people getting up and LEAVING DURING THE CLIMAX. Wife and I stayed til the end but didn't wait for the whole credits to roll. Not sure if there's an end-scene. Don't really care if there was. I walked out afterwards angry and sad at the same time.

    This was a FF film that should NEVER HAD BEEN MADE.

    FOX will distance themselves from this property very quickly so the upcoming X-Men related movies don't drown in the bad buzz. There's no way FF 2 is happening when this movie debuts in 2nd place.

    I'm hoping this loses so much money that Fox & Constantin Films work out a deal to return the property to Marvel. The Fantastic Four and all their supporting characters belong in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And I'm sure Marvel understands the characters and can make a great movie with them.

    I think this is the saddest, worst review I've read so far, coming from a fan instead of a critic.
