a little campy fun until it's not
19 March 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Victor Von Doom is observing a special comet with Reed Richards when an explosive charge changes Von Doom forever. Ten years later, Reed, college friend Ben Grimm, Sue Storm, and her brother Johnny Storm are on an experimental rocket set to investigate the comet. They are sabotaged by Von Doom's minions and they crash back on earth changed with new superpowers.

This is a low budget production from B-movie legend Roger Corman. It's an ashcan copy so that producer Bernd Eichinger could maintain the film rights. With such low expectations, there is some fun in exceeding them from time to time. For example, I'm a little shocked that any special effects happens at all. Most of it is silly. It can be hilariously funny with Reed Richards' extending arms. I enjoy Grimm's plastic costume as the Thing. Von Doom's minions are extremely silly but Von Doom himself looks good. The story and directing can get a bit muddled. The acting is strictly B-level. At some point, even the campy fun wears thin and it is simply not good.
