| Solid effort
What we really have here is a solidly put together superhero movie of the popcorn variety which will more than likely get the sequel it deserves, which unfortunately suffers from timing issues, having come out a whole three weeks after a movie named Batman Begins, which seems to be considered as one of if not the best superhero movie ever made. Since this is a different movie you can't really compare the two in my opinion. Performances are fair to excellent but this being the first movie of a possible series the various relationships have to be set up, and characters have to make sense within whatever story is presented. Origins of the heroes and villains need to be explained, which when you have 5 major characters plus the supporting people takes a whole load of time and you don't want your movie running much more than two hours. Writing seemed to make sense for what was there, but I'd be interested to see what happens in the next one now that the major relationships have been established. What was there was well presented it's just too bad that Batman Begins came out first to deservedly steal whatever thunder this was likely to generate. Again a decent way to fill two hours, just don't expect to be blown away.

Trivia

Reed's smart phone, which he uses to control the holographic presentation at the beginning of the movie, is a Samsung SPH-i700 on Verizon. Verizon was a marketing partner for the film.


Quotes

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


Goofs

As Von Doom is watching Mr. Fantastic on his monitors as he's doing the equations on the blackboards, the final underlined statement is already on the board - then Mr. Fantastic goes and writes it on the board, underlines it, and retracts his arm.


Crazy Credits

There is a scene in the closing credits: Dr Doom is seen on a ship heading to his home country Latveria.


Alternate Versions

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
