Review : The Fantastic Four, The Rise of the Silver Surfer

Rise of the Silver Surfer


The Fantastic Four learn that they aren't the only super-powered beings in the universe when they square off against the powerful Silver Surfer and the planet-eating Galactus.

The sequel or follow up to the first Fantastic Four, as a way of both extending the character development of the main four further and give them a new enemy to fight against. I'm skeptical about Superhero action films, I feel the same about sequels. Another film excites me, they say that most sequels suck. Well not this one, at least from my point of view. In some cases 'Rise of the Silver Surfer' is so much better than the first Fantastic Four. All the introductions are done and dusted, essentially, you can just go straight into the story and actually get into what the film has to offer.

Everything seems to be going great for the Fantastic Four. After defeating Von Doom, the Fantastic Four can really enjoy life more. All four are now comfortable with their new powers. Reed and Sue are finally getting married, and The Thing and Johnny Storm now get along with each other, things couldn't seem better. However, Galactus, an evil creature in space, has decided that Earth is it's new target, and sends the Silver Surfer to destroy it. Reed Richards and his team must now work together to capture this surfer, and even must now team up with one individual who they didn't expect to help.  

The plot is very easy viewing, very easy to follow and to understand and collect all the information in order to enjoy it. It's one of these films which I find has the nice balance of comedy, sentiment moments and action thrill, you can watch this and just enjoy it no matter what. In terms of a full package, this just has more of everything, you have more story to play on, and the ideals of this film are very fun to play with in a diverse manor. 

My only main concern is that it needed to be longer. It seemed to be very done and dusted and didn't have such a constructive ending as it might of done. 

I think what I love about Tim Story films is that you get a great sense of fun out it, and in Film such as these you watch to be entertained. I was entertained, so I'm going to give it a 7/10.
