Fantastic Four
Fantastic Four
is a light-hearted and funny take on Marvel Comics' first family of superheroes. 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. Characterisation 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

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Offering a real improvement on its predecessor and successfully introducing one of the world of comics’ most popular characters in the process, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer easily warrants some attention on DVD to go with its impressive box office take. Picking up where the surprisingly tepid original left off, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer finds the Marvel Comics Universe’s first family dealing with the celebrity that their powers have brought them, to the point where even a simple wedding can’t take place without interruption. The film then takes a little while to re-establish its characters and re-introduce some of the issues that underpin them. But it’s not too long before the Silver Surfer arrives, and things really get into gear. For make no mistake: it’s the Surfer who ignites the film and provides some of the very best moments of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Backed up by some superb special effects work, he’s a far more interesting draw than the returning Julian McMahon as Dr. Doom. While there are, inevitably, various problems that each of the characters in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer must face, the film never opts to go knee-deep into them. Instead, it chooses a light, breezy tone, that’s suited well to family viewing yet not without some genuine blockbuster moments. It’s no classic, but Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is most certainly fun. And it’s equally certain that this isn’t the last we’ve seen of this quintet of heroes... --Jon Foster

Fantastic Four - Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis head a sexy, star-powered cast in this explosive adventure about a quartet of flawed, ordinary human beings who suddenly find themselves with extraordinary abilities.

Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer - Marvel's first family of superheroes, The Fantastic Four, meets their greatest challenge yet in Fantastic Four - Rise Of The Silver Surfer as the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer comes to Earth to prepare it for its destruction. As he races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of the Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy Dr. Doom before all hope is lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great double disc of the Fantastic Four Films 18 Aug 2009
By A. Davis VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I liked the Fantastic Four films and thought they looked good on DVD.
But having got this DVD I was very impressed at just how much better the films look.
The level of detail is superb allowing you to see masses of detail that maybe was missed previously.
Sound quality is good too with good sound tracks present on both discs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Less for you money than the DVD. 27 Aug 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
While I am not one to make a huge fuss over special features on movie discs, I do like some of the documentaries, music videos and outtakes etc that are often put on these things, so I was somewhat surprised to find that the Blu Ray version of the first FF film is missing nearly all the special features that were available on the DVD version.
Even the DVD version had a featurette, music videos and an inside look at X3 on the main disc, but the Blu Ray has none of these, and certainly none of the features that appeared on disc 2 of the DVD release.
For some reason, the first FF film on the Blu Ray release has been put onto a single layer BD25 disc, where as the Rise of the Silver Surfer is on a dual layer BD50 disc, meaning it has (what looks like) all the special features that appeared on the 2 disc DVD release.
I am upgrading a lot of my DVD collection, so it annoys me somewhat that if I want to keep any of these special features, I now have no choice but to keep the older DVD version as well.

The films themselves look great, which is no surprise being that its a modern special effects driven pair of films.
The FF films certainly werent the most outstanding examples of the superhero genre, but like the comic books, they have a lighter, more family friendly tone than most.
Chris Evans steals most of the scenes he is in, and was absolutely perfectly cast as Johnny Storm, which is what made it so surprising that not only was he cast as Captain America later on, but also that he managed to pull that off as well. He is obviously a lot more versatile than most people give him credit for (although he does seem to like being in comic book based movies as Cap marks his 3rd different comic book character)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 3 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My daughter is Super Hero mad and she loves these movies

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Advantages:
Less space on the shelf - two BR discs in one package.
Huge amount of special features in FF2 (even two trivia games!)
Price!
Quality of the package and both movies is amazing!
I confirm it's Region B as both discs play without problem and if I remember correctly, it could be Region Free...

Disadvantages:
FF1 contains only one special feature - commentary with the cast.
There is no main menu of both films - when you put the disc into the player - the movies start immediately.
2 or 3 deleted scenes are in poor quality and in black&white.

I'm giving only 4/5 stars because I was hoping for more special features on FF1.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value - Films OK. 14 May 2014
By DL
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The kids love these films which might tell you something about the way they have been made. They aren't the gritty superhero films that are coming round at the moment they are more like comic books.

The Thing is a rubber suit, Doctor Doom is all wrong and Galactus is frankly rubbish. If you can get past these things they are fun popcorn movies.
