Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer Reviews

Jason Zingale

Yet another disappointing sequel in a summer filled with far too many of them.

The makers of the franchise better find something more interesting for their four heroes to do -- and quick.

For non comic book fans over the age of 13, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is a tedious, incoherent bore. For comic book fans of any age, it is an atrocity.

Better than its juvenile predecessor.

Sure, the CGI work is all pro and the Silver Surfer effect is a cool visual but the dumb lines and forced chemistry just don't cut it.

It is passable comic book stuff, dumb and loud. Loud. LOUD.

The film fails to sustain its modest running time of 87 minutes.

Better than the first one, but that's only taking into consideration that it couldn't possibly have been any worse.

It's funnier and splashier than the original, but I still can't quite recommend it.

Kids will probably have a blast - but pity their parents having to explain afterwards what exactly those American federal agents were doing torturing a gurneyed prisoner in a secret Siberian base.

As far as minor triumphs go, at least Story's disposable film is shrewd enough to understand, embrace, and then stay true to its iconic comic book source material's lighthearted spirit.

Kam Williams

The worst comic book adaptation since, well, since Fantastic Four 1. An unimaginative disaster that takes forever to end, as if the celluloid is being stretched by Mr. Fantastic to make the movie last ten times longer than ninety minutes.

It's a vast improvement over 2005's laughably dim-witted superhero tale, though it still lacks any major high-stakes excitement or surprises.

When Jessica Alba was at the MTV Movie Awards she called Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer the best family/comedy of the summer. That alone should spell disaster for a superhero film.

While it might be better than the first one, it still sucks.

The same kind of lightweight but well executed comic book-based romp as its predecessor.

Sentient humans should stay away; all others may enter confident that their IQs are already in the Chernobyl-fried range and will not be affected, except for downward.

Yeah Johnny, it's got a Hemi. Too bad the rest of your movie is such a broken-down lemon.

Rise of the Silver Surfer is an existentially and aesthetically unnecessary sequel to the equally irrelevant if depressingly successful Fantastic Four.

| Original Score: 1.5/5

Surfing down the face of a building or opening bottomless holes in the Earth? Yes! Lamenting the loss of his loved one and trading therapy sessions with Sue? No!
