Fantastic Four (2005)

Ioan Gruffudd, Michael Chiklis, Jessica Alba and Chris Evans are a quartet of space scientists shot out into orbit only to encounter the mutating power of cosmic rays. With their newfound powers, they squabble and fight and occasionally save the world from threats like super-powered industrialist Doctor Doom ("Nip/Tuck"'s Julian McMahon). The cast is better than expected and the special effects do not disappoint, but the sci-fi story is awfully far-fetched and there's a bit more silliness here than I like in my superhero stories. 105 minutes PG-13.
