Trivia

In an interview with the filmmaker Kevin Smith, Stan Lee, the creator of the "Fantastic Four", said that, unknown to its cast and crew, this movie was never intended to be released, and it was made only because the studio that owned the rights to make a "Fantastic Four" movie would have lost those rights if it did not begin production by a certain date.

Goofs

Laser beams continue moving in the direction they are aimed. Dr Doom's laser cannon was aimed at an upward angle, and would simply continue into space, not descending on New York, as shown in the film. See more »

Quotes

Fun!!!
30 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I completely agree with those reviewers who say this fun little movie is like a classic cartoon come to life. I collect comic books from the 40's, 50's, and 60's and this movie definitely has that same vibe. FANTASTIC FOUR '94 is delightfully cheesy and fun just like many old school cartoons and comics. The budget and FX can't compare to those of the '05 movie, but so what? The old school comic book vibe is fantastic. I don't agree with the reviewer who say it's a "bore". There's absolutely nothing boring about it. It's too damn FUN to be boring! FANTASTIC FOUR '94 is a blast of highly entertaining low budget escapism from start to finish.
