Reed Richards, a brilliant but timid and bankrupt scientist, is convinced that evolution can be triggered by clouds of cosmic energy, and has calculated that Earth is going to pass one of these clouds soon. Together with his friend and partner, the gruff yet gentle astronaut muscle-man Ben Grimm, Reed convinces his conceited MIT classmate Dr. Victor Von Doom, now CEO of his own enterprise, to allow him access to his privately-owned space station. Von Doom agrees in exchange for control over the experiment and a majority of the profits from whatever benefits it brings. He thus brings aboard Susan Storm, his shy, though assertive chief genetics researcher and a former lover of Reed's with whom she had an acrimonious break-up, and her diametrically opposed brother Johnny, the maverick and hot-headed playboy pilot. The astronauts make it home intact; however, before long they begin to mutate, developing strange and amazing powers as a result of their exposure to the cloud! Reed is able to...Written by

(at around 1h 11 mins) When the waitress sets the stack of pancakes in front of Ben in the diner (with Von Doom), the butter pat slides off the side. In the next shot, the butter has magically jumped back to the top center of the stack, and stays there for the rest of the scene. See more »
Typical of Victor Von Doom to build a 30 foot statue of himself.

The Airline version is slightly different. The following difference's include:
Instead of the talk Sue and Reed have on the bridge, they're in a Planetarium instead.
During the final confrontation with Dr. Doom, Thing knocks open a fire hydrant and Mr. Fantastic puts his body in an "S" shape to amplify the water, instead in this version it cuts to Thing using his foot as if he did everything himself.
The scene where Victor opens the energy globe and puts his arm in it to increase power, large bolts of electricity jump out in the theatrical version, in this version, there are no bolts of electricity, indicating the effects were not finished.
The scene where Reed proposes to Sue on the boat, he just stands up normally and delivers his proposal with a different acting take.He doesn't kneel down while still standing as he did in the theatrical version.
Some shots of crashing cars on the bridge were cut.
Some language was cut, mostly reference's to God.
The scene where Victor picks up his phone and says " Leonard, bring Ben Grimm to the Baxter Building " was changed to " Leonard, bring me my Lab Rat ".
The Death of Victors' boss is slightly edited.
The scene where Thing walks into the bar has a different song playing and the glasses don't shake, nor does the record skip in this version.
During the scene where Sue, Reed and Johnny are taking a cab to the Brooklyn Bridge we hear a voice-over of Reed saying " Ben told us to meet him here at the Brooklyn Bridge " after this voice over it cuts to the three of them in the car.
This does not happen in the theatrical version.
During the scene where Johnny puts a shirt on and burns it and tells Reed and Sue he has " a serious problem " we can actually hear him yell off-screen and also hear flames shoot out as well before he informs then of what happened. In the Theatrical Version we just see his burnt shirt and the following line.
Although the film was shot in the Super 35 process, this version Pans and Scans as if it were shot in Anamorphic Widescreen instead of properly framing it for Full Frame as most Super 35 films are.
Fantastic Four (2005) is a charming movie that has a lot of that early 2000's flair to it, and unlike its 2015 counterpart, the characters actually seemed real and you could believe that giant rock man was walking around. As for plot, it could be a little bit more straightfoward, but it doesn't throw me off. It's more of just an annoyance, and I'd say that all of the characters costume design looks a lot better than 2015 Fantastic Four as well. Also, Doctor Doom is more fitting to the comic book representation. Overall, it was a pretty good movie. Don't see why people have such a problem with it.
