In the film, Victor's quantum attack on Earth resembles a drill, and results in a giant sinkhole with a waterfall spilling into it. Parts of the film were shot in Louisiana where, in 1980 at Lake Peigneur, an oil drilling accident resulted in the tallest waterfall in the Mississippi River valley (estimated over 200 feet) flowing into a sinkhole.

When the 20th Century Fox logo fades away, the F in the logo stays for a second longer before it also fades away. This parallels the Fox X-Men films, where the X in the logo stays longer also. See more »
Unfortunately for everyone involved and especially the audience, the creators of this reboot had no idea what the F4 stand for, or what their stories should be about. This is rather dark, without charm or humor and totally ruins one of the greatest villains of Marvel comics. sure, the special effects are decent and there is potential for a somewhat good film here or there but the stereotypes and lack of an intriguing plot entirely ruin any chance of a redeeming movie experience. Very disappointing.
