Fantastic Four

Rated PG-13 100 minutes 2015

For the first half hour or so, this Marvel Comics adaptation approximates the childlike wonder of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. A kindhearted scientist assembles a team of young prodigies to construct a machine that will transport people to an alternate universe. All four principals—Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell—are well cast, and their gee-whiz idealism is just right for the wide-eyed perspective of director Josh Trank. His film turns into yet another special effects showcase once the quartet gain superpowers, but at least the effects look good.
