Fantastic 4:Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

From the glut of super hero films that came out in the 2000’s this is the second film in the Marvel series of the Fantastic Four which consists of Mr Fantastic played by Ioan Gruffudd, Sue Storm played by Jessica Alba, Johnny Storm played by Chris Evans and the Thing played by Michael Chiklis. Mr Fantastic and Sue Storm are trying to get married but things just keep getting in their way, I think it is Mr Fantastic’s Blackberry which he cannot let go of. Anyway the Silver Surfer turns up and starts boring holes in the Earth and the fantastic four are called upon to save the world again.

Another comic book adaptation where I have no idea of the source material, so do not know if this is a good adaptation for the screen. I will say that it is aimed very low in my opinion, the first film and this one both go for bawdy laughs and cheap gags and the story is not that strong from my point of view. There are some good laughs if you like the characters when they start switching powers but it is a sketch more than a good thing. Also the ending is a bit meh, just not captivating and non-engaging.

So in summary poor characters, poor story but some interesting giggles and the effects are certainly acceptable but overall not worth seeing 3 out of 10.
