Corrected entry: When Sue strips down on the bridge, Reed takes off just before Johnny bends down to pick up her clothes. He only grabs her shirt, jacket and pants. When we see Sue climb in the cab, she also has her shoes back. (00:33:50)
Corrected entry: Did anyone ever stop to wonder how Ben Grimm turned himself back into the Thing for the climatic final battle scene - without Victor Von Doom's assistance? Remember, earlier in the movie, Reed Richards couldn't get enough power to the machine, which is overheard by Von Doom through the cameras he has planted in the lab. Von Doom (whose body is now like a charged capacitor) had to supply the extra power needed to change the Thing back to normal...so how did Ben get the machine to work without him?
Corrected entry: When Dr. Doom is trying to eliminate the Fantastic Four, he makes Ben 'normal', then he freezes Reed, incapacitating him, and then he believes he destroys Johnny with the missile. He then says, "Two down, two to go. He should have said, "Three down, one to go. He thought he had taken Reed, Ben and Johnny out of the picture and he had no way to know that Ben had regained his powers.wizard_of_gore
Corrected entry: When Ben Grimm is on the bridge he stops an oncoming semi-truck by simply allowing it to slam into him, at which the truck halts cold and crumples under Ben's immense resistance. But although Ben, as The Thing, may be able to withstand such a collision unhurt, he still cannot stop a speeding truck dead in its tracks. As is evidenced by other scenes, Ben is rather heavy (massive), but not so heavy that his mere weight causes damage to various floors on which he walks. His body lacked sufficient inertia to stop the truck at that speed; He would've been dragged along with it.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Johnny in watching the X-Games you can see it is night outside. However, when he drives to the games it changes to day.
Corrected entry: When Vic is holding Reed hostage, and is super-cooling him, he bends back Reed's finger. You can see that he lets go of his finger, so he wouldn't hurt the actor. Reed groans after Vic lets his finger go and the snapping sounds continue.
Corrected entry: When Victor is first looking at his stitches in the mirror, they are on the right side of his face. He even tells his assistant to make sure he is only photographed from his left side. For the rest of the movie, though, his scar is on the left side of his face.
Corrected entry: A vital part of the denouement comes as Doom is disabled when he is superheated and then cooled down by being sprayed by water. As Reed has it - "You know what happens when hot metal is rapidly cooled." Not much that will help them, actually. Water cooling of hot metals is an important part of the process of hardening them. Spraying ordinary fire hydrant water on red hot metal will make it stronger. Since Doom's metal body was overheated they should have made him even hotter, pushing him to melting point (we already know Johnny can generate enough heat to melt tungsten) rather than helping him out by cooling him back down.
Corrected entry: When Johnny walks out to meet the press for the first time on the bridge, Sue tries to stop him by saying, "Get back here right now, Johnny," but her mouth doesn't move.
Corrected entry: In the scene with The Thing and the firetruck, the fireman on the ladder is first facing forward toward the water as the ladder falls away from the truck. After a few shots the fireman is shown facing the other direction, and falling away from the camera. Then after a few more shots the fireman is facing the water again as the ladder reaches the end of its reach and he flips over the last rung.
Corrected entry: During the bridge scene, The Thing shows incredible strength by wrecking a truck by simply lowering his shoulder. Later in the movie however, when the Fantastic 4 are fighting Dr. Doom, he is thrown full speed onto a much smaller car driven by two women. When he gets off the hood, we see he has not even left a dent.
Corrected entry: When Johnny leaves the Baxter Building after arguing with the Thing, he is wearing khaki colored cargo pants and a leather jacket. When he comes back after Ben's transformation into human, he has on blue jeans and a red blazer.
Corrected entry: You can tell that Susan purposely hits the bottle of wine off the table, when she first finds out that she can turn invisible. She gasps before she hits it.
Corrected entry: In the scene where The Human Torch does a stunt on the motorcycle, the announcer says something like: "Come on, that's old school, show us something new." When the announcer says that, the microphone isn't near his mouth, and his mouth doesn't move either.
Corrected entry: The gray streaks in Reed's hair change in thickness in many shots. It goes from a little bit of gray to lots of gray to hardly any many times during the movie.
