From Amazon.co.uk

Fantastic Four is a light-hearted and funny take on Marvel Comics' first family of superherodom. It begins when down-on-his-luck genius Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) has to enlist the financial and intellectual help of former schoolmate and rival Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon) in order to pursue outer-space research involving human DNA. Also on the trip are Reed's best friend, Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis); his former lover, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), who's now Doom's employee and love interest; and her hotshot-pilot brother, Johnny Storm (Chris Evans). 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 co-creator 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, Amazon.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Good film with great special effects 24 Mar 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fantastic Four is a film that shouldn't be taken too seriously. It's a good film with amazing special effects and action sequences. The cast is good, particularly Jessica Alba. She's great as Sue Storm. Some scenes and dialogue could have been left out of the film. If you're expecting something like X-Men, you'll be very disappointed.
The DVD set is great too. Plenty of special features and things to watch. The limited edition packaging is nice too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully the start of a great franchise 24 July 2006
By I. R. Kerr TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
As a fan of the Fantastic Four from the late 1960's I was looking forward to this movie.

With a few minor grumbles I am not disappointed. This is a scene setting movie much like X-Men was, it has to be as there are so many characters to introduce. So many hints to be dropped as to possible future characters.

The new origin of Doctor Doom does work better in this age than his coming unstuck whilst meddling with the black arts. It is far better to have them all suffer from the radiation together and Ben's catching the brunt of it is a better explanation of why his change was so permament.

It also ties Reed Richards up with Doom as the early comic books did with their brief college meeting. I feel the movie characters do tie in well with the way they are portrayed in the comics. Johnny Storm IS a pain in the ass youth with a fast car fixation a part played really well by Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis IS Ben Grimm he wanted this role and you can feel how he empathises with what both Ben and the Thing feel. Reed Richards IS a blinkered brainiac who did not know how Susan Storm felt about him. Sue Storm also started off with just invisibilty and only developed the force field after using one of Reed's machines.

Julian McMahon's Doom may be a little melodramatic but by God it does work. In the comic he rarely took his mask off as he was disfigured, the movie shows Doom developing a metal skin which works just as well, and thanks for using the green cape. From that instant he WAS the comic book Doom. Great to see Doom sailing off to Latveria in the end as you know he will be back, with diplomatic immunity maybe?

3.0 out of 5 stars lightweight fun for the undemanding. 9 Mar 2006
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this despite its flaw. As a comic book fan, but not Fantastic four devotee, I know a fair amount about the source material. The plot is well insignificant as this is really a character driven origin story, the problem is that the characters aren't that strong. Okay the Fantastic four are fairly iconic, and have never been deep. Reed is a stretchy scientist who is smarter than everybody else, the human torch is as fiery in personality as his powers are physically. Invisible girl is a sensible head to calm the boys, and the Thing is a troubled monster with a heart. Hardly the deepest templates but talented writers could have made more of them.
The direction is okay, as are the effects.
As for deviations from the source material, Victor von doom. Eastern european mad genius becomes an annoying rich business man. It amazes me that they dumbed down the story from the simple sixties comic book original.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better 5 Oct 2009
Format:Blu-ray
I bought this with great anticipation, having watched the film on DVD which in itself was a good release. The disapointing thing with this was it is just the Cinema release with one audio commentary. With the DVD release it firstly came out with a bundle of extras, and with the second extended version there was no extras. It would have been good if this release had the combination of both DVD issues, which would showcase what Blu-Ray could do. The extended version is a far better film with some great added scenes that give the film better character developement, I hope it is released soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good old-fashioned action movie 14 April 2007
By Jay
Format:DVD
The critics tore "Fantastic Four" apart when it was released,but they missed the point.This is nothing more than a good old-fashioned action movie,and on that level it works wonderfully.It's got a good story,fast-paced direction,solid production values,and terrific special effects.And thanks to great performances,it's also got some depth and humour to the characters. Julian Mcmahon of Nip Tuck and Charmed fame seemed a bit too nice to be the worst Marvel villain Dr Doom; I personally would have preferred the wrestler Kane but I just cant see him playing an intellectual. Jessica Alba,Michael Chiklis,and Ioan Gruffdd are wonderful, and is good.But Chris Evans steals the movie in a rousing and delightful performance,and he's the best thing in the movie.The whole thing is a lot of fun! Watch out for the trailer with him and The SiLver Surfer for the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good film, but could've been better! 11 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Just like with Mr & Mrs Smith, this film had plenty of action but I was expecting more because the characters felt rushed and out of place despite the big names like Michael Chiklis (Shield), Ioan Gruffudd (King Arthur) Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), & Jessica Alba (Dark Angel & Sin City).
I believe that the characters needed more time to develop themselves and establish their roles in the film, mainly it this film it shows how they got their powers and what affected them went the cloud struck in outer space.
Hopefully if a sequel gets released, there will be an opportunity to recap on previous events and let the characters develop more freely
