The Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer
by Robert G Parent
Awesome experience overall.
Who cannot love the main characters, including Jessica Alba. I loved her in her role in “Dark Angel” but as Susan Storm, let's just say I'm not disappointed either. However, I'm left with one question, Is she better looking as a blond or brunet. I don't know.
The Fantastic four not only saved the world but can plan a wedding at the sametime.
At the beginning, we get a glimpse of their personal lives didn't slow the movie down but added another flavor to the movie and an overall question that they ponder on through the whole movie – can you still have a life and family while your famous?
The humor was done well in the movie. Humor can be tricky to do but when it comes out of the flow of the story, settings, and scenes it is good and everyone laughed when it came to the comedy parts because it came out of the natural flow of the story. To bad Stan Lee couldn't get into the wedding of Mr. Fantastic and Susan Storm. Maybe he'll get into the wedding of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson. Yes, the humor was well done throughout the movie.
The wedding and the beginning of the story added a different flavor, but when the action started to rise was like a roller coaster of emotion, action, and special effects. If any of you are waiting for the DVD, don't, the big screen experience is the best way to see this movie, with of course a group of friends or an audience filled with enthusiastic, rowdy people.
