Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer Movie Review

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jun 14, 2007
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Get the review of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer starring Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Laurence Fishburne.

The Fantastic Four are back and this time around, they square off against the powerful Silver Surfer. Think it's as fantastic as the first Fantastic Four? Check out the review of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer!

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - Super Celebs

Life is pretty fantastic for the Fantastic Four. Susan Storm AKA Invisible Woman (Jessica Alba) and Reed Richards AKA Mr. Fantastic (Ioan Gruffudd) are headed for the altar, while Johnny Storm AKA Human Torch (Chris Evans) and Ben Grimm AKA The Thing (Michael Chiklis) enjoy their fame and fortune by posing for pics, giving out autographs and getting VIP service in the clubs. But nothing ever stays peaceful for long in a superhero flick - the Silver Surfer cruises on in to destroy the world, and even crashes Reed and Susan's wedding.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - Super Cool

When the Human Torch chases after the Silver Surfer, he gains the power to absorb the rest of the Four's super powers! Realizing the Silver Surfer is a lot more powerful than the Fantastic Four can handle, the military steps in to help out - with Victor Von Doom! Yes, he's back from the dead (come on, no one ever dies in a superhero flick) and he's got more evil tricks up his sleeve, leading to more suspense, chaos and action-packed scenes!

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - Super Dud

Let's face it - Jessica Alba may be a hottie with a body, but no one wants to watch her whine about having the perfect wedding for two hours. But a totally cool nemesis, CGI and special effects more than make up for it!

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - Bottom Line

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is another fantastic superhero flick! It gets off to a slow start, but quickly picks up when both the Silver Surfer and Victor Von Doom arrive to wreak havoc, and the foursome must get their act together to be the superheros they really are.

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
