Down to 29% on RottenTomatoes (I'm surprised they even screened it for critics) here's what they have to say:

At times silly and then serious, this Fantastic Four is the cinematic equivalent of multiple personality disorder.
Sentient humans should stay away; all others may enter confident that their IQs are already in the Chernobyl-fried range and will not be affected, except for downward.

You need to understand that if we keep going to see bad movies, studios will keep making them...
If you're a battery, you're either working or you're dead....
