    Synopsis


    Fantastic Four
    A handful of heroes become superheroes under unlikely circumstances in this action drama adapted from the long-running Marvel comic-book series. Four astronauts are on a mission aboard a new experimental spacecraft when they are unexpectedly exposed to a massive dose of gamma rays. The accident causes strange and unexpected transformations in all four. Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd), top scientist and leader of the mission, can now stretch his body like elastic and is dubbed Mr. Fantastic. His partner and sweetheart, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), develops the ability to become invisible at will, and becomes known as The Invisible Girl. Her younger brother, Johnny Storm (Chris Evans), is renamed The Human Torch for his new talent of being able to summon up fire from his body when he chooses. And Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis), pilot for the journey, mutates into a monstrous creature with superhuman strength and muscles like stone, known as The Thing. Together, the travelers become known as the Fantastic Four, and they set out to use their unusual skills to fight crime, quickly gaining a nemesis in another altered hero who uses his talents for evil, Doctor Doom (Julian McMahon). A long-gestating project that had been talked about by a number of filmmakers since the early '90s, Fantastic Four was previously the basis for a pair of animated television serials, and was made into a feature film in 1994 by producer Roger Corman, though that film was never officially released. (Fantastic Four creator Stan Lee has said the 1994 film was made only so that the producers could hold on to the rights to the characters, and that it was never intended to be distributed to the public.) ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Not as bad as many reviews claim

      Many reviewers really hated this Marvel film but it is fairly true to the comic book series on which it is based. I think that Jessica Alba was a poor choice as Sue Storm. Her hair in the movie is a weird color, not the platinum blonde which it should be. Ben is well-played and Chris Evans is fine as Johnny Storm. But Reed Richards comes off as pretty weak rather than the strong-willed leader that he should be. Victor Von Doom is great but his part is too small. All-in-all a good, but not great Marvel movie. You need to own it, just like you need to own every edition of the comic book if you are a collector.

      Studios Starting the Bait and Switch in Blu-ray

      The studios are starting the bait and switch under the Blu-ray banner.. Bought this movie to update my video collection to Blu-ray. Realized after the fact that the video is not 1080p HD. Specs says MPEG 2 @ 18 MBPS. Video doesn't look any different than my standard DVD copy version . Studios are starting to downgrade Blu-ray quality without informing the consumer. Make sure if you are buying Blu-ray movies from 20th Century Fox to read the specs to make sure you're getting full 1080p since they seem to be the only studio downgrading at this point or just check them all to be sure.

      Mediocre Four

      Don't get me wrong i enjoyed this movie overall but i was left wanting more. At times i was blown away other times i wanted it to let loose and really show me something and i mean that in the most serious way...I did however enjoy it just enough to watch part 2, which was way better. I'm neutral here...I would say if you are a a fan of the Fantastic Four watch it, if you don't really care then leave it alone. But if you are interested in watching part 2 do yourself a favor and watch this one too, it's only right.

      I believe that the "Fantastic Four" movie was great. Even though that now they are remaking a lot of superhero movies and making them better, I still really enjoyed this movie. The whole cast was brilliant, entertaining, and fun. I found the special effects and action sequences pretty good and to my liking. This film also looks amazing on Blu-ray. I recommend the "Fantastic Four" to anyone who enjoys to watch movies.

      The Movie I Really Wanted

      FANTASTIC FOUR is the super hero comic book that drove me to create my collections more than 20 years ago. I simply love those characters. When the movie came out I was really exited to see it, and thoroughly relieved that it was actually good. It was but a few weeks ago that I found the perfect Blu-Ray copy of it (with Digital HD included) at Best Buy. Circle closed. Happy Geek!

      This is a good re-imagining of the iconic comic book heroes. It has a good story that holds your attention, plenty of action and still stays within how the original comic was written, super hero's with some comedy and action added in. A good cast all around and the actors make sense to who they are supposed to actually be and the do it well unlike another unnecessary reboot.

      This movie is pretty disappointing. Not as bad as the second one but it doesnt have enough fighting and the villains agenda is unclear and driven by stupidity. Not enough fighting but its enough to keep you awake. Out of all the MArvel movies its not the worst but certainly not the best. Its pretty much mediocre. It deserves 2 and a half stars but I cant select that so here you go.

      I always felt this first official cinematic rendering of Fantastic Four wasn't treated fairly. It's a lot of fun, and blissfully free of the darkness and angst that permeates most modern superhero epics. Some of the CGI hasn't aged well, but it was never top-drawer to begin with. Just have fun with this one.
