Did You Know?


The music in the trailer advert is actually the theme from another Roger Corman production, 'Battle Beyond the Stars' (1980). The music soundtrack to he actual final cut of the film is an original specially commissioned piece though. See more »


Laser beams continue moving in the direction they are aimed. Dr Doom's laser cannon was aimed at an upward angle, and would simply continue into space, not descending on New York, as shown in the film. See more »

Why does everyone trash this movie? Anyone who has read a Fantastic 4 comic book in their life would know that this movie stuck closer to the Origin and premise of the Comic Book than almost every other comic book film out there. And the costumes were perfect. The THING (Ben Grimm) has to be one of the best translations from the Comic Book page to Film that I have ever seen. And the actors all looked liked the Comic Book characters. Doom was pretty damn cool too. Although I will admit they could have done away with the blind girl(Lyja). That sub-plot just didn't work at all. But besides that, I think this was a pretty good movie. The only people who trash this movie are the people that can never be pleased no matter what is done to make the Comic Book movie as good as the Comic Book. For the budget they had and the whole reason behind which this movie was made(It was only made so Roger Corman could keep the Film rights to the F4), I would say this is one under-rated film. It's way better than alot of crappy Comic Book Films we have seen before. This would really be good on DVD in a nice Widescreen re-mastered presentation. Keep hopes alive.
