Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

I saw two movies last Saturday. And yes, I paid separate admission for each one.

Ok, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. It was ok…a fun comic book action romp. Although I actually kind of feel mean for saying this, I’m gonna say it anyway: Jessica Alba does not seem to be a very good actress. Or else she was directed terribly in this film. She is super gorgeous and she’s not a horrible actress, but other than making puppy dog endearing eyes to the Silver Surfer, I am not sure how much she contributed to this film. Frankly, that look she does kind of reminded me of Puss in Boots from Shrek. (I could almost hear the background music swelling). Plus, she still seems too young for the dude they have playing Reed Richards (who is pretty hot, by the way).

OK, I’ve been to a lot of the summer movies, and I’ll try to give quick reviews for each.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)
4/10

Basically, I think the story is pretty weak in this. (The characters/performances also seemed flat, too, although I think that may have a lot to do with the story.) So why do I give this a 4? Well, it was mildy entertaining, but I would have to probably give it a three or less objectively.

**Spoilers**

Not seeing Galactus was a disappointment. Dr. Doom’s presence in the film seems to be solely because the film lacks a villian. In that way, it feels contrived. The film feels more like the first part of a two part film, the second part being the confrontation between the FF and Galactus. Oh course, we never get that.
