7 May 2007 | ma-cortes
| The phenomenal and sensational adventures of Marvel comics group's greatest super-heroes team.
This adaptation from famous comic begins with an experimental space journey financed by Victor Van Doom(Julian McMahon).The spaceflight crew,included Victor Doom, is constituted by team leader scientific named Reed Richards(Ioan Gruffud),the pilot named Ben Grimm(Michael Chiklis),Sue Storm(Jessica Alba)and his brother Johnny Storm(Chris Evans).But the starship is bombarded by cosmic rays and they find themselves turning into fantastic Super-heroes. Mr. Fantastastic,leader of the group gains the ability to stretch his body to any shape;Sue Storm gains the ability to become invisible girl and projects telekinetic fields ;Johnny Storm as the human torch creates a flying blazing ball and with ability to control the fire ; and Ben Grimm is turned into super-strong rock hunk known as Thing.Then Ben is rejected by his bride(Laurie Holden)although he gets a new blind girlfriend named Alicia Masters(Kerry Washington).The Fantastic Four become into team of Super-heroes and use their supernatural powers to battle the nasty enemy,Doctor Doom.The incredible quartet taking on the threats to the world with their extraordinary force.

The movie blends action comic,humor,romance,spectacular adventures and is pretty entertaining and funny.The picture is marvellously realized with sensational production values and ideal casting formed by agreeable young men actors.Amazing array of technical special effects with rousing action set pieces action illuminate the full-blown feats Fantastic four.The final duel between the protagonists and villain super-hero is breathtaking and exciting.Although have given bad reviews to this film ,I think that is amusing with spectacular scenes during whole the movie.The plot is pure fun just like the original comics by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee(appears in a cameo).The motion picture is rightly directed by Tim Story(Barbershop,Taxi),he's making the second part titled¨Rise of the Silver Surfer(Doug Jones)¨with the same players.Indispensable and essential seeing for Super-heroes fans.
