A movie based on the Marvel comic “Fantastic Four”
I went to see the movie today with some friends. *No Spoilers*
An unknown force (The Silver Surfer) arrives to Earth, threatening to destroy all life on the planet.
In my view, this movie comes out better than the first one. Lots of fun moments as I remember them from the comic, including the teasing and rivalry in the “family”. I loved the cameo appearance of Stan Lee. While I know many of the hardcore fans of the comic will be disappointed with the depiction of Galactus, to me it worked quite well on the big screen.
While the story may not be very subtle (after all it has its origin in a comic book) I found the unfolding fine – not dragging too long, actually the movie is relatively short. Still, one nice aspect, it is about having a choice , even at times you think that you do not.
Very nice special effects in creating the Silver Surfer
I would recommend go seeing it, even if you are a fan of the comics, in my book I would rate it 4/5.
PS. I have heard that the Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Stracynski is working on the script for a Silver Surfer movie, sounds interesting.
