Marvel's first family of superheroes, The Fantastic Four, meets their greatest challenge yet in Fantastic Four - Rise Of The Silver Surfer as the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer comes to Earth to prepare it for its destruction. As he 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.
Offering a real improvement on its predecessor and successfully introducing one of the world of comics most popular characters in the process, Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer easily warrants some attention on DVD to go with its impressive box office take.
Picking up where the surprisingly tepid original left off, Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer finds the Marvel Comics Universes first family dealing with the celebrity that their powers have brought them, to the point where even a simple wedding cant take place without interruption.
The film then takes a little while to re-establish its characters and re-introduce some of the issues that underpin them. But its not too long before the Silver Surfer arrives, and things really get into gear. For make no mistake: its the Surfer who ignites the film and provides some of the very best moments of Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer. Backed up by some superb special effects work, hes a far more interesting draw that the returning Julian McMahon as Dr Doom.
While there are, inevitably, various problems that each of the characters in Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer must face, the film never opts to go knee-deep into them. Instead, it chooses a light, breezy tone, thats suited well to family viewing yet not without some genuine blockbuster moments.
Its no classic, but Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer is most certainly fun. And its equally certain that this isnt the last weve seen of this quintet of heroes... --Jon Foster

But that's before the weird anomalies start happening. A bay in Japan freezes over. It starts snowing in Egypt. And Los Angeles loses power.
This latest crisis just confirms Sue's fears that the two superheroes will never be able to raise kids and live a normal life. She and Reed begin to think about leaving the Fantastic Four, which doesn't sit well with the other members, Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis) and Johnny Storm (Chris Evans).
Meanwhile, the threat just keeps growing. This creature is creating giant holes in the ground. And he has awakened Dr. Von Doom (Julian McMahon). Can the Fantastic Four work together to save the day?
When you go to see a super hero film, you expect action and special effects. This movie has both in spades. It's like everything in the first movie was just a set up to get to a real story. Which is a good thing since I felt the first film was rather weak. And while there is only one real standout action sequence, there are plenty of smaller sequences that were lots of fun. As you'd expect, the special effects are believable. And there are lots of funny bits as well, especially when Johnny is around. And Stan Lee's standard cameo? Absolutely hilarious.
So, what didn't I enjoy? The story was rather predictable, and, despite character driven sub-plots, the characters are rather flat. The actors do what they can, but they don't have much to work with.
Finally, the editing seemed choppy, mainly at the scene breaks. It was like bits and pieces were cut out.Read more ›
I always felt the first film only really got going in its dying stages. Both movies are no more than an hour and a half in length and the first one only really sees the Four coming together to fight their nemesis, Dr Doom, in literally the last ten minutes. So, I was kind of hoping this one would continue the battle most of the way through. Sadly, it didn’t. Everything kind of goes back to how it was before – the four heroes bicker among themselves and then have to use their combined powers to save a cat up a tree (or something – I may have made that one up, but you get the idea).
Now, instead of just Dr Doom, we now have three baddies to contend with. However, none of them really do muc that’s bad throughout the best part of the movie. We have the Silver Surfer (voiced a bit by Laurence Fishburne) who just kind of flies about a bit and causes power cuts. Dr Doom is still on the scene, but after the whole of the first film was spent turning him into Dr Doorm, he promptly drops his iron mask and cape and returns to a guy with slightly effeminate eyebrows (who has borrowed Emperor Palpadine’s lightening fingertip powers). Finally we have Gallactus (I think that’s how you spell it). In the comics he’s a giant robot who eats planets. Now he’s a kind of giant puff of smoke who travels through space squeezing worlds (and you only see him in the last quarter of an hour or so).Read more ›
The Surfer is one of Marvel's great icons and no doubt some will be disappointed by this movie due to their own high expectations.
The single disc would have got 4 stars but this two disc version is well deserving of 5 stars for the package as a whole.
The story worked for me, a modern version of FF 48-50 with Doctor Doom returning to steal the Surfer's board and hence his powers then taking on the FF, unaware that Galactus is getting closer to the Earth. Wisely it was decided the old comic version of Galactus would not work here and he has had a full make-over, although fans do get a good view of the classic headpiece as its shadow reflects against a planet. The devourer himself is only hinted at. Another nice tribute is the appearance of Stan Lee himself in his cameo role as he tries to attend the wedding of Sue and Reed. In the original comic (FF King Size 3) he and the Surfer's creator Jack Kirby are shown trying to enter the wedding unsuccessfully.
Yet again the acting highlights are Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans as the duelling team-mates who do seem to get a kick out of their characters.
Where this package wins for me is the second disc, especially the 39 minute documentary on the phenomenon of the Surfer with contributions from Marvel greats Stan Lee, Jim Starlin, Steve Engelhart and many others that cover the many years that I missed and am now catching up on. There's also the "Making Of.." documentary, which although has now become an obligatory extra still comes up with some interesting details. The hint that Sue is pregnant for one, will Agatha Harkness be around for the next movie if Franklin makes an appearance?
For the next movie, it has to be the Sub-Mariner or, at the very least, please bring on the Skrulls or Annihilus.
