Storyline

Reed Richards, a brilliant but timid and bankrupt scientist, is convinced that evolution can be triggered by clouds of cosmic energy, and has calculated that Earth is going to pass one of these clouds soon. Together with his friend and partner, the gruff yet gentle astronaut muscle-man Ben Grimm, Reed convinces his conceited MIT classmate Dr. Victor Von Doom, now CEO of his own enterprise, to allow him access to his privately-owned space station. Von Doom agrees in exchange for control over the experiment and a majority of the profits from whatever benefits it brings. He thus brings aboard Susan Storm, his shy, though assertive chief genetics researcher and a former lover of Reed's with whom she had an acrimonious break-up, and her diametrically opposed brother Johnny, the maverick and hot-headed playboy pilot. The astronauts make it home intact; however, before long they begin to mutate, developing strange and amazing powers as a result of their exposure to the cloud! Reed is able to...

Had a great time!
29 June 2005 | by kidgeekSee all my reviews

I had a great time at this movie. I didn't really know what to expect - but this movie is pure summer popcorn fun! Everything else I've seen so far has been pretty heavy and dark - this movie is fun and a great time. Jessica Alba is HOT HOT HOT. And I love Chiklis from The Shield - he is awesome as The Thing. My girlfriend loves Julian McMahon - and he was good as Doom. The best was Johnny Storm - he really surprised me. I think we'll be seeing more of this guy. I didn't know much about the Fantastic 4 before I went in - and I now I'm definitely into the characters. And the effects are great.

I definitely recommend this for everyone - it's a great summer movie. Not going to win any awards - but is perfect fun to get out of the summer heat.
