In the comics, Doctor Doom constantly wears his trademark suit of armor since an accident in his laboratory. There is a tradition of never showing his face under the mask (by having some object come into the panel to obscure his front whenever he takes it off) with the understanding that there is nothing beneath but scar tissue.

I didn't think much of the original FF, but this one is far better in every aspect. Better writing, more exciting storyline, and better acting, as well. The special effects are amazing, as everyone can probably already tell from the previews, particularly the Silver Surfer. His scenes were incredible.
I laughed quite a bit at this movie, surprisingly, as I didn't find the last one very funny. The humor in this movie was a little more mature, particularly when Johnny Storm is asking Ben Grimm about how he and his girlfriend have "relations (which is something I always wondered as well)." My favorite scenes were the ones in which Ben and Johnny interacted, as Michael Chiklis' Thing is my favorite character to watch. He really captured the spirit of the comic in both appearance and attitude.
There are many things to like about FF: ROSS, just don't expect Shakespeare, or even deep comic book movies like Batman Begins or X-Men. This movie is rated PG, and rightfully so. While there are mature moments, FF is at heart a movie for younger people.
The reason that I gave this movie a 6, despite my seemingly high praise of it, is the ending/last 15-20 minutes. While not enough to ruin my enjoyment of this movie, the ending definitely rubbed me the wrong way, particularly as a comic book fan. I don't want to give anything away, so I won't go into detail. But it's easy to see how the producers painted themselves into a corner by needing an easy way to finish a movie that could potentially have an extremely vast scope.
Bottom line: if you're a FF fan, or just a comic book fan in general, this is one that you won't want to miss. Just, like I said, don't go in expecting to think deep thoughts.
