Basically this movie is not good. The acting is cardboard, at best, the visual effects are terrible, even for 2005 standards. I mean, by this time Peter Jackson created whole armies out of CGI, they couldn't even get rubber to look real. And, the Thing, I'm pretty sure that was just a paper mache suit. If the creators of the film were going for a throwback, almost campy feel, then they pulled it off. I think this film had more in common with the Batman television series from the 60's than it does modern comic book adaptations. If it's the only thing on HBO one night, like this was, then I guess watch it, but don't go out of your way.

This is the opposite of what modern comic book films have become - a superhero flick with no weight or real stakes. The visuals are cartoony, wasting the potential for battles and action sequences of real creativity and the acting is over-the-top and silly.

Could have been better or worse. Mundane telling of the FF story.

"Fantastic Four" by Yojimbo

This film is rubbish. Of course it's rubbish. Anyone who would come to a screening of The Fantastic Four with the expectation of intellectual stimulation would have to have the cranial capacity of an invertebrate. But the fact is, it's actually fairly enjoyable. Michael Chiklis is spot on as The Thing (although he did occasionally remind me of a fat version of Bruce Willis impersonating Scooby Doo) and Chris Evans' Human Torch whom I expected to detest was actually more like one of those annoying friends we all have, who is irritatingly vacuous yet irresistible to the opposite sex but we still can't help liking anyway. The only real drawbacks are the fact that Dr. Doom was transformed from twisted genius into a petty egoist and the soundtrack, which inevitably contained the usual hotch po...

I donít know whatís more bewildering to me that the people making this film thought it was good, that the studio deemed it acceptable to release, or that it made $150 million at the box office. The entire movie runs like an old Ed Wood film; itís just catastrophically bad. The ďplotĒ we are forced to buy: scientists who canít tell the difference between seven hours and seven minutes but can make space age suits (form-fitting for Jessica Alba) that will miraculously get the same powers as the four, that the crap Michael Chiklis is covered in is rock, that Dr. Doom (one of Marvelís oldest and most revered villains) is only a greedy businessman who becomes Magneto and just happens to keep a metal mask on his desk for the climax of the film, and New York City is the size of two square ...

A good live-action adaptation, but not "Fantastic"

"Fantastic Four" is a live-action adaptaion of one of the most popular titles published by Marvel Comic Group. However, this version of "Marvel's First Family" is not as "Fantastic" as their comic book counterparts.

The first thing that you can't help but notice is the special effects, The CGI is very good in this film. But sometimes, the powers of the "Fantastic Four" special effects are pretty cartoonish. One effect I was very disappointed in is the make-up for "The Thing" (Michael Chiklis, who I think was too small for this role). The comic book version of the character has a more pronounced rocky complexion. Another disappointment was the cosmic storm which gave "The Fantastic Four" and "Victor von Doom" (Julian McMahon). In fact, I think the size of the storm changed as it loomed...
