Product Overview

After exposure to cosmic radiation, four astronauts (Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, and Michael Chiklis) become the most remarkable, if dysfunctional, superheroes of all time. Unfortunately, the mission's sponsor has also been transformed - into the world's most lethal supervillain - setting the stage for a confrontation of epic proportions.

Review I enjoyed it, more so than might have been suggested by the lacklustre reviews that it's generally received. I laughed, thought the set pieces were fun and, like X-Men, that did well to set up a sequel that feels as though it was agreed whilst this was still shooting...As much as these recent films were entirely welcome, particularly the Spider-Man films, it would also be welcome to have the franchises trimmed somewhat as well as to have the genre moved on. Hopefully, the forthcoming Watchmen film will nudge comic book adaptations into a new direction, where the origins of the superheroes is inconsequential to their actions in the film but, for now, Marvel are sticking to a tried-and-tested formula that's working but leaving Fantastic Four as simply another superhero movie.

Review Director Tim Story (Barbershop) fails to develop a consistent tone, and this picture seems targeted at a less mature audience than many of the recent comic book movies...Fantastic Four has its good points - there are individual scenes that work. The special effects are variable, but all four of the superheroes are rendered effectively. There's a nice sense of teamwork in the final battle, and it contains moments of surprise and excitement. Too bad that it comes too quickly and with too little build-up. Fantastic Four is frustrating because it doesn't seem far removed from a wholly enjoyable motion picture, but the tempo's off, beats are missed, and the production ends up sounding out-of-tune.

Chicago Reader Michael Chiklis (of the cop show "The Shield") steals the movie as the agonized Thing.
Chicago Tribune Spectacular. Astonishing. Stunning.
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun ...cruises along on modest yet genuine comic-book pleasures.
Stephen Hunter, The Washington Post A funky, fun film version of the famous Marvel superhero concoction...
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer ...done with an agreeable confidence and flair, the actors all fit comfortably in their roles and the effects are fun.
