Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer - A Review

This was a good movie. First off this movie really hit the core of these characters and the fact that they are a family. The joking and humor between the Torch and Thing was dead on, the romance between Reed and Sue, The Thing and his girl friend, all were really well done.

The story itself was decent with the Silver Surfer coming to Earth to prepare it to be consumed by Galactus. The menace felt real and the battle to save the day was well done. The addition of Doctor Doom was okay, but I could have lived without it.

Finally the actual length of the film fit the story. Instead of dragging it out we had character development to start the movie, the actual adventure take place, some good moments for each character to be heroic, a nice battle to end the movie and a nice ending that was happy for the FF and a little cliff hanger regarding the Silver Surfer.

The people who have been downing this movie must be looking for something different that what the FF is in their comic.

Grade B
