Fantastic More… or Less?


Meh. Somehow it was less painful than the original, probably because it didn’t even try as hard. Good enough pacing, only two really painful scenes, and a surprisingly strong take on the Surfer and his effects. But sheezus, the effects on Mr. Fantastic were embarrassing.

Overall: B. Is it a credit to say it wasn’t nearly as bad as I expected??

    Alba suffered from Dunst Syndrome in this.  I don’t remember her being nearly as unlikable in the first.  And aren’t we passed characters saying things like “my bad” at this point?  I know i’ll catch flack for this, but i enjoyed the first one more.  The surfer did not need LF’s voice “talent.” I felt it was a distracting element to a potentially cool character.  And yes, those effects were anything but fantastic.  I didn’t hate it though.  But yeah.  No DVD for me.

    I haven’t seen it yet, but I think I’m going to like it more than the first.  I’ll get back to ya…

    There’s no way I will see this in the theaters, after that first piece of garbage.  I have no idea what this is really about, but expect it to be lots of scenes of people chasing the Silver Surfer around.  Yippeee!  So far, it made $57M this weekend, which all things considered, isn’t very good, so I’m happy that there’s a good chance there will be no FF3 (though Fantastic Four Four, would have been an awesome title) and that this might put the temporary kibosh on a Surfer flick (or at least, the patience to do it right).

    Definitely will give it a whirl via Netflix.
