The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.

Colourful, cartoony but ultimately quite camp, this comic-book adaptation successfully swings for a slightly younger audience and maintains a lighter tone throughout whilst remaining relatively true to the source material and being consistently passively entertaining. There's a nice mix of CGI (now pretty dodgy but fairly convincing for the time) and practical effects, and the team-work theme hadn't been done to death when 'Fantastic Four (2005)' was fist released so it provided a satisfying conclusion when the Four finally fully came together to defeat the enjoyably hammy villain. Though it has its share of under-cooked moments that make little sense and may make you roll your eyes, it's never so bad as to cause offence and remains a somewhat decent, if forgettable, experience. 5/10

At least it is better than the reboot.Mr. Fantastic is distant like he is in the source material, but not as distasteful. You sort of get the impression that he's kind of a cold-hearted jerk in the comics, refusing to help people and pushing them to make deals with Doom because he doesn't see the time sacrifice as a benefit to himself and his research.In the movie, he's a lot nicer.Susan Storm, well, she's kind of just eye-candy in the movie isn't she? An excuse to see Jessica Alba almost naked and because of that, they lacked any real development for her. It hurt the film.Johnny and Ben are by far the best and truest to the comics, but then they are also the most entertaining, the saviors of what would otherwise be a very boring film.Sure it was an introduction, but one that was overly bland with only small parts that were really entertaining.

It's a nice movie I suppose. Seen through a younger viewers eyes this movie appears to be more awesome,and has good special effects for its time. Seen through an adults eyes this movie was just average, Jessica Alba however was not average, seeing her in tights makes this movie very watchable.... I do think movies like this are fine, not all superhero films have to be overly serious,well acted and violent. The audience for movies like Fantastic 4 are out there.The characters personalities stay true to the comic book and thats very important.I've seen this movie 3 times and I'm not a fan of seeing movies more than once usually.Fun silly movies will do this to me.

The reviews of the movie were nothing but terrible, but I thought to watch it anyway. And I was very surprised to find that I was enjoying the movie and thought why was this getting such terrible reviews? Then the superhero thing happens, and as soon as the main characters obtain their superpowers, the movie takes a hairpin turn and manages to self destruct. I had never seen a movie that take such a turn in quality so suddenly, and when the end comes it feels like someone had just poured a bucket of cold water on you.Such a shame, it seemed like it was leading up to something great but it just decided to give up. I can't help thinking there is a good movie in there somewhere.
