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.

That's right, I like this movie!
21 December 2004 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

OK, the special effects are hideous (even for a mid-90's Roger Corman film), and it's about as campy as the original 1960's comics, but I still enjoy this movie. The acting in it wasn't stellar, but it wasn't really bad either. It's reported that this movie was only made so it's production company could keep the rights to it for another five years and if that's the case, they did a pretty good job on their 5 dollar budget. *SPOILER* I thought adding the Mole Man sequence was a bit superfluous but other than that the movie really had a coherent plot and it was executed well. The problem was, again, a 5 dollar budget and no desire at all from its studio to see it do well. Had they pumped more money into it for special effects (i.e. Mr. Fantastic stretching and the Human Torch burning/flying), and actually released it this movie probably would have made some money. Not much, but it would have been better than both "Batman and Robin" and "Godzilla" which came out around the same time (give or take a year or three). If you can find it at a comic convention or at some flea market booth, I'd drop the 10-15 bucks it'll cost ya so you can view another take on the whole FF saga before the 2005 version comes out. Beware though, you'll probably be buying a copy of a copy of a copy so don't be disappointed if the quality ain't great.
