A very refreshing take on the TV series from 1978 by the same name. This movie serves as a back story to the set up for the TV shows main characters.

Way too long and too much going on. It was fun for a while, but the script was borderline nonsensical and got bogged down in too many characters and twists.

This movie was terrible. We had such high hopes for it but it falls so flat on its face. And if you’re familiar with the TV show, well it’s nothing like it but it never claimed to be. The twist in it is actually pretty good but it can’t save the fact you wasted an hour and a half on this garbage. It may have been better if they went all in and made it a rated R horror film. It’s not scary, it’s not creepy, it’s not much of anything. My wife feel asleep at one point and I found myself just loosing interest at times.

If you grew up watching the show Fantasy Island, you’re going to feel compelled to see this movie, lol, that why I went to see it. The ending has a “ Oh ok “ moment. Should have just been a Netflix or Amazon Movie 🍿

I remember the original tv series and was curious about this movie. After watching this it is okay. Unfortunately the movie doesn’t stick the landing. The third act almost completely undoes the narrative leading up to it. Maybe next time.

It wasn’t what I expected. The movie had a lot going on. The story was diverted with the underline plot of mystery which led to an anti climatic moment. The reasoning and solution clashed with cheesiness. A total cliche

Movie was a decent watch . The big flaws I had with the movie were not a single likable character except for one , the drama in it kind of was unnecessary, was very confusing .

I really enjoyed the plot of the movie, but for as much as they build it up the ending was a let down.

It was dragged on too long and there were too many”plot twists” to the point where the main one wasn’t even a surprise anymore... should’ve stayed home

I actually liked about 2 thirds of it and it does help if you liked the television series that it was based on or at least it will help you to catch some of the inside jokes.

Felt very random. There were good moments and surprises here there but over all, just thrown together. I’d see it again in some down time or after a drunk night with friends for fun. LoL

If this were the feature-length pilot episode for some cheap reboot on a streaming service — which is what it feels like — a generous viewer might half-heartedly agree to tune in next week and see if things get more interesting. But on the big screen? A sequel would be less welcome than a new episode of, say, Charlie's Angels. Or Starsky Hutch.

Fantasy Island is the sort of inept, forgettable disaster that doesn’t even induce so-bad-it’s-good chuckles.

Fantasy Island is a failure on nearly every level.
