Four astronauts have their lives changed forever, when they end up being hit by a cloud of cosmic radiation. Reed Richards now has the ability to stretch his body like elastic. Sue Storm (Alba) is now the invisible woman. Johnny Storm becomes the human touch and Ben Grimm becomes the 'Thing', a man made out of rock. But there is one problem. The journey's sponsor, Victor Von Doom has also been affected and with full power, is a dangerous force which needs to be stopped, before it's too late.Written by
(at around 23 mins) The wine Reed and Sue are drinking in the dinner scene when their powers emerge is Robert Mondovi Sauvignon Blanc. See more »
The Thing's weight is inconsistent throughout the film. For example, at the beginning, he's heavy enough to collapse a hospital bed while simply laying in it, but when he's thrown into a moving car by Dr. Doom at the end of the film, he does little more than dent the hood and apparently has little impact on the vehicle's maneuverability.

Typical of Victor Von Doom to build a 30 foot statue of himself.

There is a scene in the closing credits: Dr Doom is seen on a ship heading to his home country Latveria. See more »
In the US/UK a modified version was released on DVD. For example, the UK release has scenes, dialogue and effects shots different to the Hong Kong, French and German versions. There are reports of the Canadian version being affected also. These changes include:
Reed and Sue rekindling their romance is shown in a scene with the pair walking and talking, with the Statue of Liberty in the background. The Hong Kong version loses this scene and replaces it with one where the two are seen in a planetarium, whereby the scene ends rather abruptly before the pair kiss
Dr Doom saying "Goodbye, Ben" is missing from the final fight scene in the Hong Kong release, but present in the UK edition
When Dr Doom is engulfed in the fire at the end, his yell has him emitting a fiery breath in the Hong Kong release but this effects is missing from the UK edition
Dr Doom's line as he emerges from the fire is cut short in the Hong Kong release. The words "A little heat?" do not appear, but are in the UK edition
During the final confrontation in the UK release as The Thing uses his foot to direct water at Dr Doom, Mr Fantastic helps by using his powers to direct the water from the fire hydrant onto Dr Doom. However, he is not present in the Hong Kong version and The Thing seems to defeat Doom by himself
Reed's proposal to Sue is also different. In the UK version, he bends down on one knee by stretching himself, whilst maintaining eye contact with Sue. In the Hong Kong release, he actually gets down on one knee for real
Dr Doom's voice is different in both version. In the UK version his voice sounds normal, whilst in the Hong Kong edition his voice takes on a more eerie quality, and sounds like he is talking from behind his mask
This movie is very enjoyable like it don't need a dark tone and Dr.Doom looks better. I'd wish I watch the 90s one even though it didn't age well but still I want to. At least the characters are likable then Fant4stic because the characters in the movie are lifeless while in this film there not boring. I know the film is not the best but I have a good time with it
