When four astronauts become exposed to radiation that leaves them with strange superpowers, they must overcome their interpersonal differences to battle a potent threat to their city. The leader of the group is Ioan Gruffudd's Reed Richards, who is in love with Sue Storm (Jessica Alba). The sassy Sue is sister to hotshot Johnny (Chris Evans), and the odd man out in the group is Ben (Michael Chiklis), whose new powers have rendered him a freak. One of many movies in recent years to bring comic book heroes to the big screen, "The Fantastic Four" is filled with top-notch special effects and action. However, its greatest appeal lies in the way that four flawed individuals work together to make a vital difference for their community.
