Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Released 2007 Rating PG in UK
Director Tim Story Writer/s Don Payne, Mark Frost
Starring Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis
Source of story The characters including the Silver Surfer, from Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
Elevator Pitch Two of the Fantastic 4 are getting married when they are disturbed by a galactic emergency, requiring them to save the planet which is being menaced by the eponymous Silver Surfer. They find he is preparing the way for the planet eating Galactus.
Content Lots of Fantastic 4 action as they are called upon to use their superpowers. Minor destruction of buildings. Some explosions. The Silver Surfer appears to bea naked male humanoid – lacking genitalia.
A View I’m not much of a one for the Marvel Comics stuff, but this is not the worst I have seen. It does have a bit of a plot as well as the big set pieces – which are not very very big. Kid’s stuff really.
