Movie Review: Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer


I liked the original Fantastic Four movie despite the terrible reviews for it. The only thing I found fault with the movie was that the final battle with Dr. Doom was way too short.

The sequel however did not disappoint. Its still getting bad reviews but this time round more people are liking the movie. For me I loved Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Come on, The Silver Surfer ? Even if you don't know who he is, he looks damn cool on screen.

Moreover the 4 heroes now have a closer bond and it shows on screen, they are more comfortable in their roles and the banter is fun. Make no mistake though, unlike other superhero films like Batman, Superman and Spiderman, the Fantastic Four series is not about realism or deep emotions. Its chock full of tongue in cheek humor, playful banter, awesome action scenes and is just plain fun to watch.
Think of it as appealing to the 12 year old child you were and reading Fantastic Four comics. I loved the movie and highly recommend it as 90 mins of brainless fun. I give this show a 4/5.
