Quite possibly the most pointless movie I've ever seen. Nothing significant happens whatsoever. It takes around an hour for the title characters to gain their powers, after which point the movie completely bypasses any semblance of a second act and rushes through a brief and laughably bad final act. The film was poorly conceived and clearly only made so that Fox wouldn't lose the rights back to Marvel.

Fantastic Four mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Sue's hairstyle, as well as the texture and length of her hair, and the color, changes from scene to scene, and even at times from shot to shot. This was due to movie re-shoots.

Sue Storm: Music is just a series of altered patterns. The musician creates the pattern and makes us anticipate a resolution... then holds back. Makes you wait for it. There's patterns in everything and everyone.

More quotes from Fantastic Four

Trivia: An early draft of the script was much larger in scope and more light-hearted in tone, and featured numerous characters including Dr. Doom, Mole Man and a cameo by Galactus to set him up as a potential future villain. The film had to be scaled back due to budgetary restrictions. Director Josh Trank then decided to approach the film from a newer angle to set it apart, by going for a more Cronenberg-esque body-horror movie crossed with a superhero film. But much of the film was altered in reshoots after filming ended to make it feel more like a standard comic-book movie.
