Trivia

Apparently, at first, Marvel denied that this film ever existed. When they were confronted with the footage in the films trailer they changed their mind and said it was a pilot for a TV show that was never commissioned. Finally when the film found it's way onto the internet several years later via a bootleg VHS copy they reluctantly admitted its existence. See more »

Goofs

The Human Torch is apparently able to control his fire powers while they are stranded in the woods following the shuttle crash. Yet when he accidentally activates the power when he is with the doctor, he freaks out. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Fantastic: I think it's made us feel that our worst character defects are in fact our greatest strengths.
Human Torch: Holy Freud, Batman. I think you're right.

Oh come on guys this is a great little film.
24 February 2005 | by 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.
