Fantastic Four’s less-than-fantastic audio commentary

On the back of the Fantastic 4 DVD is the following: “Full-Length Audio Commentary by Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Julian McMahon.”

Lies!  Chris and Julian do not make an appearance.  That is 40% less than advertised.  Michael more than fills that emptiness, however; he started to irritate me toward the end.  The commentary on the whole was OK.  They did hint at the sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

There was a bonus DVD included in the package which contains two featurettes.  “From Comic Book to Film” showcases elements of the comic which made their way into the movie.  “The Baxter Building: Declassified” is an interesting look into the construction and walkthrough of Reed Richard’s cribhouse/research lab.  Also on the extra DVD was 4 Marvel-movie trailers.

The movie is a fun popcorn flick, nothing special.  Some of the extras, such as a feature on how the bridge scene was made, were interesting.
