PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
A group of astronauts gain superpowers after a cosmic radiation exposure and must use them to oppose the plans of their enemy, Doctor Victor Von Doom.
(at around 12 mins) When Victor is proposing to Sue in the spaceship he says he has "four little words that will change their lives forever". Right after he says it, Reed bursts into the room saying "The cloud is accelerating" referring to the deadly cosmic storm they were observing; exactly four words that did change their lives, they received superpowers as a result of the storm.
Typical of Victor Von Doom to build a 30 foot statue of himself.
The chamber that Reed Richards created was unable to maintain its power level without Dr. Doom's power surge. How could Ben make it work after Sue and Johnny left to help Reed. Actually, there is only a need for more power to reverse the effects of the storm. Simply being exposed to the storm once again doesn't require any extra power.
There is a scene in the closing credits: Dr Doom is seen on a ship heading to his home country Latveria.
The extended cut released in the US is basically the previously released modified version with the addition of the deleted scenes that were presented as bonus material on some European DVD editions (first US DVD release included just a few of these scenes).
