Fantastic 4 movie review

 silverposter3.jpg

For the most part, I enjoyed myself.  I don’t expect anything deep from movies of this sort, so I was pleased enough with the action scenes, and felt that Doom was a big enough threat this time around.  Jessica Alba looks odd with all that makeup plastered on her face, like they’re trying to make her look more white.  Silver Surfer’s moral crisis is passably done, cause you really do feel for the dude.  One does wonder how he and the cloud that is galactus negotiated his sparing Norrin’s world for his services as herald.

Too many meh jokes thrown in though, and they passed up the opportunity for a killer ending.  At the end, when Sue and Reed are discussing if they’re ever going to have a normal wedding, Reed says “I have an idea.”  Anyone with a funnybone would instantly think “Vegas”.  But no, they go get married in Japan with some random people as guests.  Somebody shoot those writers, please.

  1. It bugs me how in the first movie Sue had to strip when she went invisible because her clothes remained visible. If her invisibilty comes from being able to create force fields around things, she can make anything invisible (e.g. Reed’s PDA and walls so she can see through them like in the second movie). But I guess people just like the idea of Jessica Alba getting naked.

  2. yeah, what is up with Jessica Alba’s orange skin?? Her natural tone was fine, but it seems they were really trying to make her look (too) caucasian this time around! Sounds weird, but it really bothered me every now and then throughout the film.

    as for the rest of the movie, it’s a great popcorn flick with a lot of well-made action sequences and great effects/CGI. There were was some wooden acting between reed and sue during their talking scenes, but I didn’t have high expectations in that regard. All in all, I got what I paid for.

    Yes, yes we do. very much so.

    At this time during the first film, Sue Storm didn’t know how to use her powers yet. Kind of like a new mutant not yet training with Professor X and the X-Men.

    Trust the men to justify the nudity. 😛 But yeah that makes sense.
