This movie was made to be a theatrical release. Underlying reason was they wanted to keep their rights, if they had the movie in production by certain date they would extend the rights. When all the cast came together at the Mall of America with posters and advertisements for the movie launch. Director Roger Corman sold the movie out from under them. And left them standing at the premiere with no film. See more »

You have to lower your standards when you watch a movie like this. It was made on a shoe string budget and wasn't even released! So how can you be disappointed (if you're a comic book fan) when you watch this? As an FF fan I actually enjoyed it, parts of it anyway. It was very faithful to the comic, even the original costumes were used. The cast was likable, even though the Human Torch overacted a little too much. The Invisible Girl was cute. Reed Richards was played very well and most importantly, the Thing looked cool. I had a blast watching the Thing yell out "It's Clobberin Time" and pounding Doom's lackeys. Even though he was a guy in a rubber suit, and even though he was a little too small, for the most part the Thing was great, especially his deep gravelly voice. Dr.Doom was also cool looking but unfortunately the actor who played him "hammed it up" a little too much. The Jeweler character was disappointing and his lackeys were extremely annoying. There are some terrible effects, such as the Human Torch flying into space after defeating Doom's laser and Reed Richards sticking his long slinky arm out of a limousine window waving at his friends, as well as some gaping plot holes. But overall, when all is said and done, it wasn't to bad. Say what you will, it was more enjoyable then Batman and Robin!
