Fantasy Island Reviews Are Up See What Critics Are Saying

Fantasy Island the TV series was a drama that saw Ricardo Montalban as a man in charge of a magical island where people’s dreams came true. Fantasy Island the movie is a horror film that sees Michael Pena as a man in charge of a magical island where terrible things happen to largely terrible people. As reinventions go, it’s maybe not the worst idea in the world. However, based on the critical response, the actual movie itself may have been the worst idea in the world.

Reviews for Fantasy Island only went live this morning, which is not a good sign considering the movie opened in wide release today. However, when you look at the reviews, it becomes obvious why nobody was in a hurry to get them out. The movie is bad, it’s pretty much universally agreed to be awful. CinemaBlend’s Eric Eisenberg gave the movie 1.5 stars, and says the plot is utterly lacking in anything resembling creativity.

There is no challenge or creativity in the storytelling, just a series of shortcuts that are needed to get to a totally telegraphed twist (which still manages to be unearned when reflecting on the details).

The Fantasy Island movie focuses on a collection of characters who have all come to the island for their own variety of reasons, wanting to live out a fantasy with a variety of motives. However, each fantasy turns into a nightmare. If that feels sort of obvious and predictable, then it’s no surprise that this movie is being reviewed as being obvious and predictable.
