After exposure to cosmic radiation, four astronauts become the most remarkable, if not most dysfunctional, superheroes of all time. Reed Richards is the leader of the group and gains the ability to stretch all parts of his body, he takes the name Mr. Fantastic. His girlfriend, Sue Storm, gains the ability to turn invisible and create force fields, calling herself the Invisible Woman. Her younger brother Johnny Storm gains the ability to control fire, including covering his own body with flame and is those named the Human Torch. Pilot Ben Grimm is turned into a super-strong rock creature and decides to call himself Thing. Together, they use their unique powers to explore the strange aspects of the world, and to foil the evil plans of Doctor Doom.

Hate it. Galactus was a formless planet sized cloud blob?
Unintended shout out to the Super-Skrull in one scene.

Totally average.
Origin story just not the same as Fantastic 4 got their powers in a thinly insulated rocket hit by Cosmic rays.
Ditto on Doctor Doom. His face got disfigured after mystic spell gone sideways during university as Reed's roommate.
They got the casting right, but not the plot.
All that money & it still cheesy!

This version is just OK but it is ten times, nay, ten billion times better than the 2015 version

This movie is one of my favourites. It was so weird seeing a younger Christ Evans after The Avengers, Jessica Alba after Spy Kids 4, and Ioan Gruffudd after Amazing Grace. It's hilarious and action filled, not to mention a certain hot character. I'm sure some other girls know who I'm talking about 😉😂

Having just watched it again for the first time since it came out I have a hard time understanding why this movie is so reviled. While I grant that the story does jump around a bit, on the plus side I found the performances to be quite winning (particularly a pre-"Captain America" Chris Evans as super pest Johnny "The Human Torch" Storm) and the film had a refreshingly light touch. Maybe the main problem was how this lightness was definitely counter to the brooding "Batman Begins" tone that became so popular and influential back in 2005 as well. All I can say is that F4 has earned a spot in my nostalgia zone- not perfect, but certainly not the worst comics movie (hello, Watchmen...).

While viewing Fantastic Four I thought that when the pigeon pooped (splat!) right on "Thing" that just about summed up this dismal excuse for a superhero movie in a nutshell._____ I rank this movie in the same league as the horrendously bad Watchmen. It's movies just like these 2 (and there are others) that make me despise the whole superhero genre to the 10th power._____ This film wasted way too much time giving the viewer a blow-by-blow rundown of how each member of the "Four" had acquired their fantastic powers through exposure to cosmic radiation._____ Blatant product placement of both Pepsi's and Burger King's familiar trademarks lost this picture some major points._____ Without a doubt, I think that Jessica Alba is the ultimate, clueless, bimbo actress, bar none. Don't you?_____ I understand that Fantastic Four is actually due for an upcoming "reboot"._____ (Spare me!)

Sexual Content: For a time Susan needs to remove her clothes to maintain invisibility. While undressing she momentarily looses focus and we see her in her undergarments. Cleavage is shown. As mentioned before Johnny considers himself a ladies man and makes comments implying such. He is also seen naked from the waist up, covering the waist down with a coat.

Sexual Content: Johnney puts a lot of sexual innuendos in this movie.

Susan Storm: It's got to be the cloud! It's fundamentally altered our DNA!

Reed Richards: Now, let's not jump to conclusions. We need much more scientific evidence before we can say that.

Johnny Storm: Hey, guys!

[his thumb is on fire. He snaps his fingers, and it goes out. He snaps it on again, then off again]

Johnny Storm: Now picture that... But everywhere! I mean... Everywhere! *What*?

Reed Richards: ...The cloud has fundamentally altered our DNA.
