Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Critics Consensus

While an improvement on its predecessor, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is nevertheless a juvenile, simplistic picture that has little benefit beyond its special effects.

Critic Reviews for Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

All Critics (169) | Top Critics (43)

  • An off-brand superhero movie, the cinematic equivalent of one of those generic breakfast cereals with a badly drawn squirrel for a mascot.

  • The film's effects people perform many miracles, from draining the River Thames to ensuring that the Thing produces a convincing smile. But one thing they can't do is to make the unfailingly wholesome Mr Fantastic and friends worth worrying about.

    Jun 30, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The performances are plywooden, the cornball visual gags are groanworthy, and Tim Story still can't direct his way out a sack with a map.

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

    Jun 18, 2007
  • The first movie's genesis story was more fun than the perfunctory doomsday scheme trotted out here.

    Jun 18, 2007 | Full Review…
  • If you swept the cosmic dust of the superhero boom into a flimsy dustpan, you'd have the Fantastic Four franchise.
