“The Fantastic Four was a pretty good superhero movie but it lacked something. I do not think it truly lived up to itu0026#39;s endless hype from early this year. Aside from a few scenes that stick out, most are in the trailer, there is not much there other than some slick special effects sprinkled about. It is understandable, however, due to the fact that this film is about the origin of 5 different individuals and how they gained their super powers. I imagine the next one (of course, if there is a next one) will be more action packed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs for a quick rundown of the story, 5 people are sent into a space ship to gather information that would be helpful in curing diseases and other good stuff. The crew consists of Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis), Reed Richards, (Ioan Gruffudd), Johnny Storm (Chris Evans), Sue Storm (Jessica Alba) u0026amp; Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon). While in the space station, the super cosmic storm hits hours earlier than expected and all 5 are caught in the storm, forever altering their DNA (or something like that). The one that got it the worst was Grimm.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe standouts from this movie are The Thing/Ben Grimm, Johnny Storm/Human Torch u0026amp; Sue Storm/Invisible Girl. The Thing u0026amp; Torch stand out because of both their characters and personalities u0026amp; Jessica Alba stands out pretty much just because she is Jessica Alba.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI feel that Reed Richards was more of an annoyance in the movie and not as likable a character as, say, the Human Torch. Also, I fear that Dr. Doom will probably forever be compared to the Green Goblin from Spider-Man, due to the hokey masks and all. Also, the voice for Doom did not quite fit for me. I am not sure if his voice is supposed to be that docile or not, but I always pictured a deeper, more menacing voice for him.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI do hope this movie is not as criticized as movies such as Hulk or Daredevil. This movie was not that bad, probably not even as bad as I have made it seem. I would rate it somewhere in between X-Men and Daredevil. 7.5/10”
