After exposure to cosmic radiation, four astronauts 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. Packed with nonstop action, big laughs and awesome special effects, Fantastic 4 is "powerful fun" (The Baltimore Sun) from start to finish!
Among the many entries in the comic-book-movie frenzy, Fantastic Four is refreshing because it doesn't take itself too seriously. Characterization isn't too deep, and the action is a bit sparse until the final reel (like most "first" superhero movies, it has to go through the "how did we get these powers and what we will do with them" churn). But it's a good-looking cast, and original comic-book cocreator Stan Lee makes his most significant Marvel-movie cameo yet, in a speaking role as the FF's steadfast postal carrier, Willie Lumpkin. Newcomers to superhero movies might find the idea of a family with flexibility, strength, invisibility, and force fields a retread of The Incredibles, but Pixar's animated film was very much a tribute to the FF and other heroes of the last 40 years. The irony is that while Fantastic Four is an enjoyable B-grade movie, it's the tribute, The Incredibles, that turned out to be a film for the ages. --David Horiuchi

|Blu-Ray Region: Unknown||
In all likelihood each and every disc ordered from the US Amazon site won't work on your unit. I believe the US is "Region A" for Blu-ray. Is there not an Australian/New Zealander Amazon site?

Yes! And it's good even when the theatre says "no passes/discount tickets" (usually during the first two weeks of the run). There's also a BOGO coupon for Slurpees. I'd say it's a pretty good deal.

|will the extended version fix the holes?||
The extended cut does improve the movie, although the editing sucks in a couple spots. And theres a ridiculous scene in the middle that should not have been added.
