Becky and I took the kids to see the new Fantastic 4 movie at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, Colorado on Saturday. The Yahoo movies website at Fantastic 4 describes the movie as follows:
“The enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of the Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost.”
Fantastic 4 is the second movie installment of this popular Marvel comic book series. The new episode has an alien visitor that they name The Silver Surfer since he rides on a surfboard like spacecraft. Unfortunately, his mission is to destroy the planet and nothing anyone can do can stop him from carrying out his mission. Of course, this crisis brings the Fantastic 4 into action, along with the infamous Dr. Doom.
The Silver Surfer character was extremely cool, but the story was really pretty silly and it’s definitely a kid film even though there are a number of adult situations. The kids liked it much better than Becky and I did, but I’m always a fan of Super Heros. The characters are fun in this one, but I think I liked the first one much better. The acting was kind of lame in this one compared to the first, it’s almost like they just kind of showed up and didn’t really try to make it a blockbuster.
I have to agree with the critics on this one that it’s worth waiting for the rental rack. The kids thought it was Worth The Trip, but there are other kids movies out that are better for the money, unless you want to wait for the dollar movie.
