Movie Reviews: Fantatic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer
"Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" was AWESOME! It's hands-down one of the most entertaining movies of the summer. The first half of the movie is hysterically funny and the jokes are non-stop between the characters (especially Johnny Storm, that guy cracks me up). Then in the second half of the movie, the jokes aren't as prevalent, but the story is expanded to show their pain of trying to live "normal" lives, while constantly being in the public eye as super celebrities… well, that AND having the fate of the world resting on their shoulders – again. The animation is top-notch and really eye-popping, crisp and beautifully rendered. The story/script is brilliantly written and it really focuses on doing great character development and really showing the camaraderie that the Fantastic Four members have with each other. Even the Silver Surfer is developed well and he's really cool to watch. Overall, this sequel was way better than the first "Fantastic Four" movie, which was very pleasantly surprising, and I'll happily recommend it as a "Must-See" movie for this Summer. In fact, I'll probably go see it again this weekend.
All in all, I'd give this movie 4.5 STARS (out of 5). Re-watch value: HIGH (In fact, I'll probably go see it again this weekend).
Marvel's first family of superheroes, The Fantastic Four, meets their greatest challenge yet in "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" as the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of the Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost. As the F4 crew makes a big comeback from the near disastrous F4 movie in 2005, I have to say I was very impressed. It now seems like everyone is getting comfortable with their characters, the chemistry is much better and the humor was awesome. I think this F4 was better than the first one and for a sequel that is a hard thing to accomplish. I was completely entertained all throughout the movie and it almost seemed to go by too fast. However the ending was a bit over the top L it felt like the whole crew was putting forth the best effort and the movie was going great and then "I'm tired and bored let's just wrap this up and call it a day" type of ending. Other than that this was by far one of the best superhero movies I have seen and probably one of the best movies of the summer.
Overall Rating: FANTASTIC (lol…sorry) 4 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: High (I'm going to see it again this weekend with some friends & yes a DVD purchase).
