I Don't Get the Hate for this Movie

I recently watched the 2005 version of "The Fantastic Four" in preparation for the reboot that is in theaters now. This movie and its sequel, "Rise of the Silver Surfer" are 20th Century Fox productions. The Fantastic Four and X-Men franchises were both leased out to Fox prior to Marvel getting its own film production studios, and like other Marvel properties from before the MCU, this film is often bashed by comic book fans.

I personally don't see what's not to like here. Indeed, I think that this film does a great job portraying the FF's origin story. Sure, The Thing looks a bit hokey in what is clearly a rubberized suit of some sort, and I think they surely could have found an actor that looked more like Reed Richards from the comics than Ioan Gruffudd (that's quite the name, by the way!). But all in all, this is a.....fantastic....film. lol

I give it 8/10 stars. Jessica Alba does great as Sue Storm, and Julian McMahon is a superb Dr. Doom. The plot and the acting are well done, and the pace of the storytelling is good as well. To me, there's much more to like in this movie than to dislike.

Language note, though: There is one "GD" in this movie, which I wasn't expecting (it's when Ben Grimm is in the hospital bed after returning from space). I guess it just goes to show that Marvel movies were not always kid-friendly even before the recent trend in the MCU line. So heads up for that.

A Very Middle-of-the-Road Superhero Effort

This is the first theatrically released "Fantastic Four" movie, as there was previously an unreleased 1994 B-movie made by Roger Coreman. I don't find this version of "Fantastic Four" to be outright terrible; just a little bit bland and kind of unmemorable.

The performances are mostly fine. Ioan Gruffudd was serviceable and Chris Evans was pretty good as Johnny Storm, but the best performance here is Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm. He was an excellent choice for the role. Julian McMahon was rather "blah" as Dr. Doom, as was Jessica Alba as The Invisible Woman.

My main gripe with this movie is that the story is rather uneventful. There isn't much action or excitement in it until the last half hour or so. While I appreciate that they took time to show the main characters getting used to their powers (unlike the 2015 reboot), the film at times felt less like a superhero movie and more like a sitcom. It didn't have much of superheroes being superheroes, in short.

The climax at the end was decent but nothing too spectacular, and the humorous scenes are hit-or-miss. The special effects are pretty good, though, and I really like the soundtrack.

This isn't one of the best superhero movies out there or one of the worst. It's just very middle-of-the-road. Watching it wouldn't be a complete waste of time, but don't expect anything mind-blowing.

RATING: C+

Guys Fant4stic never happen

This is a REAL Fantastic Four film like it's fun and enjoyable. I do have some problem with this movie but I overall enjoyed it. Easy to follow story, convincing plot, and decent acting. Fant4stic sucked out the fun and campy parts of this film which sucks and I think you might like it if you're not a comic book fan boy (I know critics didn't like it but still. Overall a fun movie to watch.
