Fantastic Four – Rise of the Silver Surfer

Written By: Gary on July 1, 2007 2 Comments

For the effects I give it a big WOW! THe effects were amazing. Where were these movies when we were kids? We would have gone nuts over them. Now most comic story-lines are so complicated, you could never make a movie out of them.

The story-line was great but they had this constant sub-story line of stupid jokes and their powers bouncing back and forth which was just a waste in my humble opinion. Reed working around the wedding plans trying to save the world was interesting. And it was a lot faster moving than the first movie, IMHO. There was something odd about Jessica Alba, was it just that she was a blonde or was there too much make-up or what?

We lost power just before the end of the movie so a few of us were debating if it was going to end in a few minutes or if it was ‘to be continued’, I was for the latter, I felt that way before going to see the movie.

They had a bit of product placement, mostly by joking about sponsors for the team, which I enjoyed. And over at Population Statistic, Costa noticed that the name of the catering company was Edible Planet.

Being a comic fan when I was a kid I really enjoyed this movie movie even with the above comments. Just remember it’s a movie, not a comic and they take some liberties.Did the girl named Frankie have the last name of Ray? Doesn’t she eventually become a herald of Galactus?

    Good catch on Frankie Raye. Yes, that is the character that becomes Galactus’ herald in the books. I’m guessing that’s not going to happen in the movies… But she could become a villian eventually on-screen.

    Jessica Alba did look strange, even artificial. Looked much better in the first one.

    I’m thinking the third installment’s going to feature the birth of Franklin Richards…

    I thought the first one was horrible- absolutely horrible. And thanks to the miracle of scanning and distributing via BitTorrent, I have read almost every FF comic up to 1997, so I’m picky. So I was planning to skip this one.

    Then they put the Surfer in it. He’s always been one of my favorite characters. Plus, I’ve heard from a lot of folks that it’s much better than the first, so I guess I’ll give it a shot.
