Reed Ricard wants to prove a link between a cosmic storm and human evolution, but being on the verge of bankruptcy doesn't
help. So he turns to his old rival Victor Von Doom, for aid and his space station.
He agrees to the venture. So Reed, his bestfriend and bodygaurd Ben Grimm, Reed's ex-girlfriend Sue Storm and her renegade
brother Johnny as well as Victor.
But for unknown reasons the storm excelerates in speed and hits the station sooner then expected, exposing all of them
to unknown radiation. The radiation gives them all incredible powers which are not welcome, especially from Ben who turns
into a strange orange stone monster.
Victor's powers slowly develop and as he grows stronger his mental state grows weaker. He starts getting revenge on all
he felt wronged him ending with Reed and his friends.
Now there are two main things wrong with this this, as a fan of the Fantastic Four. One, the cosmic rays exposure was an
accident true, but they didn't expect it at all, they were'nt looking for it, they were testing a new space craft and two,
Doc Doom has his own powers from his own accident, an acident that scared his face, I know of know metal growing virus. But
other then those two things it was a entertaining movie. One thing they got right on the money the cartoon series of the
1960's actually screwed up on. Doc Doom's mask does not move when he talks. Without giving away the ending, I liked it,
I liked it allot. In fact one of the best Marvel Movie endings I've seen since X-Men. I give it..8 STARS
I agree with Zedd on this one. Also, like what Roper said in his review of this movie last year, all the arguing did get
annoying at points. But considering all the crap in DAREDEVIL which he loved, I can't see what right he has to complain about
bickering between friends. I also give it...8 STARS
ON THE POSSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ MAKE UP EFFECTS (The Thing make up really looks like the Thing from the comic book.)
+ COSTUMES (The FF uniforms don't quite look like the comic, close enough to make me happy.)
+ DOC DOOM (Doc Uniform looks pretty cool and we love the fact the mouth of the mask didn't move.)
+ EFFECTS (The CGI and flame effects were just perfect.)
+ CAST (The cast look allot like the comic book characters.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- ORIGIN CHANGE (The team was testing a new space ship, not looking for a cosmic storm.)
- DOOM'S PART (Reed hasn't seen Victor in years until he showed up in the mask, he never went with them during their space
- ROPER'S POINT (The FF infighting did get annoying at times.)
