Goofs

Fantastic Four established that only the F4's suits (having been exposed to the space-cloud's radiation) can accommodate their abilities. However, in this movie, all clothing of Mr. Fantastic's elongates with his body. Being a great inventor, he could have made extra clothes to suit his abilities. See more »

A Little Better Than The 1st But Still No Contest

Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Starring: Ioan Gruffudd, Chris Evans, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Julian McMahon, Kerry Washington and Doug Jones

Genre: Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Rated PG

After the so-so turnout of the first Fantastic Four movie, I was wondering how were they going to make the sequel better than the first movie? They brought in the Silver Surfer into the plot. So basically the movie picks up two years later from the last movie, Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) and Sue Storm (Jessica Alba) are about to get married and things couldn't seem better. However, the Silver Surfer (Doug Jones) is sent from Galactus to destroy the earth and Doctor Doom returns to steal the powers of The Silver Surfer and now The Fantastic Four must save the Earth from disaster. Compared to the first movie, this one had a little more action and the addition of The Silver Surfer was a nice touch but still the Fantastic Four movies are not going to match up to the success of the "X-Men" or "Spider-Man" movies. Plus I also don't understand why they gave this movie a PG rating instead of keeping it PG-13? I didn't see a reason for them to lower the rating for this movie. I don't think there will be a Fantastic Four 3 because somehow I think it would only make it worse for the movies since they've turned out with two decent movies unless they can make it extremely better to blow our minds. But I would like to see a spin-off movie for The Silver Surfer. I also enjoyed some of the funny moments from Johnny Storm (Chris Evans) and Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis). Overall it was decently better than the first but it still won't match up the high success to "X-Men" or "Spider-Man".
