NOTE: This review is of the Extended Edition, which contains about 30 extra minutes of footage not seen in theaters, such as Ben getting “dusted off” by his blind girlfriend with an artists’ brush while a sexy song plays.
NOTE 2: This review was accidentally posted for a few minutes on August 30th.
Way too much clunky “foreshadowing” going on in the beginning.
The general public was a little too accepting of the Fantastic Four once they were revealed…especially since they caused the disaster that revealed them in the first place.
I forgot the guy from The Future was in this. I don’t know why he’s in this, but he’s there.
The extended edition seemed to explore Ben’s difficulty with accepting his transformation, which was good.
I took a point off because the main characters spent more time fighting each other than
the Avengers did they fought the bad guy.
The opening credits sequence on the Extended Cut were great.
The CGI is looking a little bad now, but at the time, it was right where it should have been, so no points off.
The “priceless” MasterCard reference really dates the movie, despite it not being that old.
Fresh Direct, People magazine and Kellogg’s Corn Flakes are small stuff compared to the product placement-laden extreme motorsports scene.
While the extended edition didn’t change Fantastic Four the same way the director’s cut changed Daredevil, it did make it slightly more tolerable.
