Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) PG - 3½ Stars

Action packed and full of special effects, it's a battle of good vs. evil to save our planet. The four superheros are back in Marvel Comics, Fantastic Four as they take on the Silver Surfer.

It's wedding day for Sue and Reed when their special day is interrupted by the appearance of a new alien life form. Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) aka Mr. Fantastic, Johnny Storm (Chris Evans) aka The Human Torch, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba) aka The Invisible Girl, and Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis) aka The Thing, must do battle to save the city of this new menacing force, The Silver Surfer (Larry Fishburne). It's apparent the Silver Surfer has rode into town to see how much havoc he can invoke on Manhattan causing blackouts and tropical storms. His mission, to destroy the earth.

Ben and Johnny get a head start taking on the Surfer and also must contend with the their mortal enemy, Victor Von Doom (Julian MacMahon) aka Dr. Doom, as he has broken out of his prison of ice. Can our hero's save the planet before it's too late - of course they can.

I'm dying to see this movie, but for only one reason, the Silver Surfer is my hero, and now I'm being led to believe that he's a bad guy in this, or is that misleading to make me want to watch this movie even more?

By the way, I love your blog.
