Largely an improvement over its predecessor, this is a decent attempt at bringing the FF's adventures to the big screen, but still a few fixes away from truly being fantastic.

A little tastier but still far from a gourmet feast.

It doesn't suck. Or maybe I went into the theater with such low expectations that it couldn't possibly be as bad as my imagination had concocted.

While the gags are aimed squarely at a family audience, there's nothing wrong with that and this is certainly a film you could take even tiddlers to without worrying they are going to have nightmares later.

I have read many of the legitimate criticisms of this sequel, and I agree with them, and I do not care.

While not entirely fantastic, this "'Four" is fun, fast-paced, and family friendly.

Of all the summer's big-budget action sequels, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is the least painful.

With the wedding ruined and the future of the world at stake, it's showtime. Suddenly, Tim Story goes CGI crazy delivering scene after scene of edge-of-your-seat action that will make your eyeballs bleed.

The silver surfer is an outstanding competitor for sci-fi superhumanity's best concepts and affords the series a sweeping interplanetary scale.

It's PG-rated summer popcorn fluff at its best, and while the new additions might irritate the hardcore FF fanatics, those simply looking for a check-your-brain-at-the-door night out at the movies will certainly surf away satisfied.

Entertaining enough to earn a passing grade, but it could have been a lot better.

...[this] second episode could hardly help being an improvement.

Impressive not because of anything that's said, but for the realization that you're watching the screen be dominated by Jessica Alba and a piece of CGI without ever once experiencing the urge to gnaw through your own shoulder.

Far more entertaining and ambitious than its predecessor, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is a surprisingly effective summer movie and a huge improvement over the lackluster 2005 original.

Rise of the Silver Surfer isn't a huge improvement, and it doesn't even try to reinvent the wheel, but its minor upgrades here and there make a cumulative difference.

Has some serious flaws - like that abortion of an ending but they get the essence of the comic book correct and butcher a pivotal story arc in the process.
