Fantastic Four - Rise Of The Silver Surfer
Short plot summary

CGI'd silvery guy on surfboard out to destroy world in eco terrorism from another planet outrage. Only our comic book heroes - Invisible Girl (Jessica Alba) , Mr Fantatsic-allbendyman (Ioan Gruffudd) , The Thing Living Rock Grumpy Man (Michael Chiklis) and Flying Torch Muscles Guy (Chris Evans) - can save the day.

What our panel of critics thought

"Not a bad movie, a no brain movie, but it's colorful and has action, and a nice bunch of two dimensional comic book characters."

"A missed opportunity to see Laurence Fishburn flying through the air on a surfboard. Damn and blast CGI."

"It's so lucky the bad guy knows how to speak English."

"The London Eye is saved in spectacular rescue scenes not seen since straight to bargain bin DVD 'Hostage Outrage On The London Eye'. Bravisimo encore."

"I usually like my comic book women with much bigger breasts. The men's pecs are all to my liking however, apart from Mr Fantastic who could try harder."

"Will Chris Evans please put a shirt on."

"In the UK Chris Evans means someone completely different from the Chris Evans the USA movie star actor. If the UK's Chris Evans were to do a naked shower room scene you might expect people to run screaming from the building."

"Colorful teen popcorn bedlam from start to finish."

Please tell me the ending or whole plot if necessary

Invisible Girl manages to persuade the Silver Surfer to talk to his boss and go home without destroying the world.

Invisible Girl marries Bendy Fantastic Man.

Other comments

1950's all white characters cartoon comics caper for all the family. (The only black guy has been CGI'd out.) Not horrible, not brilliant, special effects are good.
