Did You Know?

Trivia

The studio provided Roger Corman a few million dollars and much of it was spent in 'The Thing' s costume and so there was a deliquent absence of special effects in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When the Jeweler's minions kidnap Alicia, one of them sprays something at her ostensibly to knock her out. None of the minions were wearing protection from the spray, so why didn't any of them pass out? See more »

Quotes

The Jeweler: [the Jeweler holds a gun to Alica's head] Stand back or I'll shoot her!
Dr. Doom: Go ahead.
The Jeweler: I mean it!
Dr. Doom: No, please don't let me stop you.

Oh come on guys this is a great little film.
24 February 2005 | by (Baxter Building) – See all my reviews

The only way to describe this Roger Corman produced flick, is to compare it to an episode of Power Rangers or VR Troopers, on a $1million budget. It is fast paced and fun, over the top and cheesy, and its short comings are there for everyone to see.

In all honesty the cast make the most of what they are given. Alex Hyde White has just the right dryness for the part of Reed Richards, and Rebbeca Staab is quite fitting as Sue Storm. The other characters are less well represented with Dr Doom being the worst offender, over acting as he does through the heavily cheap body armour. The realisation of The Thing and The Human Torch is quite good. The Things full body costume is similar to those used in the Turtles movies, and the Torch is brought to life via some slick animation. Oley Sassone actually gets the best out of the action scenes and coaxes a good atmosphere.

This is a movie worth seeing. It manages to capture a little of the heart of Marvel comics in ways that Captain America(1991) and The Punisher(1989) weren't able to. It is a petty that more money couldn't have been made available because as a representation of the F4 it isn't bad at all. Don't get me wrong, its no Superman The Movie, and this years Fantastic Four movie will rock. But the film is no Plan 9 or Gigli either, and is worth seeing at least once.
