well, it was good. not top quality, but good. i'd definitly see it, but it won't be one of the best superhero movies ever. it was pretty, but it showed that they intended to make a sequal. not with lead ins either. this movie was too much origin story, and not enough superhero story, and when the superhero story kicked in, it felt like an afterthought, it was so easy. the drama and tension that were available in the story were not utilized well, and there just in general didn't seem to be much going on. maybe that was just my take on it though.

anybody else seen it?

It was funny in the beginning…that's about it. It was not a high quality (visual) production either, just slightly better than a made for tv movie. I was very disappointed in Doom who didn’t have nearly enough cockyness or vanity.

Give him time, Charcoal... he's not quite 'maniacal' yet.

We saw it last night. I have to say they did a very good job, especially with the characters... the FF personalities were nailed, perfectly.

They gave Doom superpowers, though. I'm not so hot on that.

I liked it. My kids loved it. Jessica is hot, but I still don't think she can act. And though I liked it, I didn't like the plot behind Doom's hatred for the F4. "Wah! You stole my girlfriend! I'll kill you all!"

I don't think it is irrational to say Jessica is hot.
