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.

The FF movie that barely saw the light of day
9 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie does it's best with it's low budget. It probably would have served better as a telefilm. Perhaps as a pilot for a TV series.

A healthy side order of cheese is also presented in this film. Again, I think that they did pretty well on a two million dollar budget.

The origin of the FF is presented. The doom character is hardly understandable as they did no looping of his voice to compensate for his mask.

The Alicia character has no valid storyline and the FX are limited by the films budget.

There are obvious gaps in the story as well. The characters seem to instinctively have full knowledge of all their powers and how to use them.

I grew up with the FF, so that is why I welcomed ANY telling of their story on film.

I am looking forward to the big budget 2005 version.
