Another in the many "Comic books brought to life" movies is the Fantastic 4. These Marvel heros have the be some of the greatest and well know out there! I was a major comic collector as a kid and had many, many books of the Fantastic 4 in my collection. So I was very excited when this movie came out, and I'm very please that they did a excellent job of casting them for the big screen! The Fantastic 4 starts off with their origins, and how they acquired their super powers. How the team of Reed Richards (Ion Gruffudd), Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis), Susan Storm (Jessica Alba), and her brother Johnny (Chris Evans), became part of a team. A space research team conducting experiments under the funding and supervision of Dr. Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon), who is Reed's MIT classmate and now CEO of his own company.
So the team set out to Doom's privately owned and space station and conduct the experiments, and that is where it all begins! The radiation, the mutation, and the birth of the Fantastic 4!
This movie is full of great effects, lots of action and really does justice to the Marvel characters. Plus the dvd is filled with a whole lot of special "behind the scenes" footage and more. So if you haven't seen it, go see it! It's a "Fantastic" movie!
