I was never a fan of the first fantastic four film. The under impressive special effects, and several miscasts (with the exception of the excellent Ben Grimm) made one of the hottest comic properties, certainly one of the weakest adaptations to the big screen.
The second apparently has had the studio take on board some of the complaints that were rife after the first film. Certainly the effects budget seems to have been stepped up, just take a look at the trailer available thankfully in resolutions to suit all computer speeds.
