Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Marvel Comics' first family of superherodom, the Fantastic Four, hits the big screen in a light-hearted and funny adventure. It begins when down-on-his-luck genius Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd, Horatio Hornblower) has to enlist the financial and intellectual help from former schoolmate and rival Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon, Nip/Tuck) in order to pursue outer-space research into human DNA. Also on the trip are Reed's best friend, Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis, The Shield); his former lover, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba, Dark Angel, Sin City), who's now Doom's employee and love interest; and her hotshot-pilot brother, Johnny Storm (Chris Evans, Cellular). Things don't go as planned, of course, and the quartet becomes blessed--or is it cursed?--with superhuman powers: flexibility, brute strength, invisibility and projecting force fields, and bursting into flame. Meanwhile, Doom himself is undergoing a transformation.

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

On the DVD
The Fantastic Four two-disc extended-cut edition is the DVD that should have come out first. But if you did buy the original edition, you don't need it any more because this version has both the extended cut and the theatrical cut with the same commentary by Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, and Michael Chiklis. If you enjoyed the film, you'll probably like the extended cut as well, since it adds 20 minutes to the relatively short 106-minute running time. The new and extended scenes (which are also viewable separately) are mostly character interplay--Sue/Reed, Sue/Victor, Ben-Alicia (with a glimpse at a possible future villain)--plus some gags like Johnny heating up an elevator. The new cut has a new commentary by director Tim Story, producers Avi Arad and Kevin Feige, and screenwriters Michael France and Mark Frost, though they choose to talk about producing the film and not the new material. The second disc is practically worth the price of admission, with two hourlong documentaries. One is the history of the FF comic book decade by decade, with interviews of Stan Lee, Joe Sinnott, Walter Simonson, Len Wein, Marv Wolfman, Alex Ross, and Jim Lee (John Byrne is discussed but not interviewed). The second focuses on master artist Jack Kirby, including his work from the '40s on, life, work style, personal style, and far-reaching influence. The interviewees include many of the same from the other documentary, plus Neal Adams, Barry Windsor-Smith, and Kirby's kids, assistants, and friends. More featurettes and still galleries of costumes and memorabilia fill out the disc. --David Horiuchi

Format:DVD
I'll be honest...this movie doesn't need an "extended cut" version...sure it's a fine movie, but most of you already have an acceptable version of it, and an extra 20 minutes of footage is fine, but to most of us, not quite enough to justify buying an entire other DVD version of it...
So WHY am I reviewing this version of the DVD as a 5-star "MUST BUY" version? SOLELY because the "extras" DVD has a feature reflecting and honoring JACK "KING" KIRBY, the man/legend who co-created the entire Marvel universe (among other superheroes), with Stan Lee, but got almost NONE of the credit (or money) that Stan did...
KIRBY was a creative FORCE for both Marvel and DC comics over his lifetime career, and not only was he the world's greatest comic book creator and artist, but an amazingly warm, wonderful person, family man, and treated his fans as if they were close friends...never in the world was a man more deserving of a documentary than Kirby was, and while it should've been included in the original release, this feature alone is WELL worth watching and well worth as well the cost of buying this DVD...you will NOT be disappointed by watching the KIRBY documentary...he WELL deserves this honor, and it's VERY interesting for comic fans and non comic fans alike...

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheese. But good cheese! July 9, 2005
First off, I am amused by all the people who try to dissect this film saying how thin the plot is, how cheesy the characters are, and how bad the special effects are. Its based on a comic book people! Not to mention a comic that is over 40 years old! I challenge anyone to read the '60s comics and say that they're NOT the cheesiest thing they've ever read. This comic was as generic as generic can be. Just look at the names of the characters: Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, The Human Torch, The Thing, Dr. Doom. Not very creative.

Not very creative, but very fun. It captured the imagination of people back then and after 40 YEARS it has turned these characters into beloved icons. That's where I think people are being unfair to this movie. They're expecting all 40 years of character development into 1 hr. and 45 minutes worth of film. It's a beginning, an origin. We see how these characters know each other, how they attain their powers, and how they choose to deal with them at a very early stage. Do we see the intensity of their relationships, the bonds that unite them so strongly? Not so much. But they've just come together. They've just formed the team. They need time. Which is, again, what 40 years of comics give them that 1 movie can't.

I've always looked at The Fantastic Four as cheesy or goofy. From their names to their powers (Reed's stretching for example) to the situations they're put into. And yet, its still fun. From The Thing and Torch's banter, Reed and Sue as husband and wife, and the overall family atmosphere between all four of them.

So to me, this film lives up to all of that. Unlike recent comic book films (Batman, Spider-man, X-men, Hulk), it doens't take itself too seriously. It reminds us that comic books are fun and so is this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice DVD package January 2, 2006
By G. YEO
Format:DVD
I missed the Fantastic Four, aka FF in the theatres and as any self-respecting Marvel comic fan, had to watch the DVD in spite of the mixed reviews I'd heard.

The good news is: the movie is watchable. It's not perfect, and I still rate the X-men and the Incredibles ahead of this. The effects are well crafted, and much thought has been put into the visual approach.

What else is good about this: Great casting of Von Doom (Julian McMahon of Nip/Tuck) and Chris Evans as the Human Torch. Jessica Alba looks great too.

What could have been better: This entire film was more like an introduction to the Four rather than a complete movie experience. Sometimes feels like a TV show. Since a sequel is in the works, we'll just have to wait.

Weak Chink for me: Mr Fantastic is pretty average. And Dr Doom's origins are less compelling than the real comic book Dr Doom.

As some reviews say above, the Fantastic Four isn't about characterisations, and yet, one feels that the chemistry of the four could've been tweaked up a notch instead of falling back purely on the comic book landscape / approach of simple characters. After all, the Fantastic Four became "the world's greatest comic" simply BECAUSE the characterisations were complex and unique, and the characters each had strong identities. This is ignored a bit in favour of an Irwin Allen "Land of the Giants" TV feel. Meaning: these are not epic characters on the level of the X-men.

Dr Doom's development was somewhat of a disappointment. While I enjoyed how the new scriptwriters have incorporated him in a more contemporary and intelligent way - I wish that the original character could've been respected.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good action movie XD November 1, 2005
A Kid's Review
This movie is directed from Marvel Comic Book Characters The Thing(Ben Grimm), Invisible Woman(Sue Storm),Mr.Fantastic(Reed Richards) and Human Torch(Johnny Storm).Prepare for the Fantastic!

A group of astronauts,Reed Richards(Ioan Gruffrud),Sue Storm(Jessica Alba),Johnny Storm(Chris Evans),Ben Grimm(Michael Chiklis) and Victor Von Doom(Julian McMahon) gains superpowers after a cosmic radiation during their outer space experiment and must use them to defeat the evil Doctor Victor Von Doom

I think this movie can improve on the part that it should have some exciting action scenes.

I think this movie is great because I like the special effects.

The length of the movie is approximately 1h and 40 mins.This movie is just right for action-movie lovers.

I love this movie and would want to watch it for the 2nd time.

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?

movie cash
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.
