Stan Lee:  as a guest who is refused entry to the Fantastic wedding. This is taken from an issue of the 1960s "Fantastic Four" comic, where at Reed Richards and Susan Storm's wedding, Stan Lee and series artist Jack Kirby are turned away from the wedding, in a blatant breaking of the fourth wall, which was very rare in the mainstream Marvel Comics universe.

6 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

This exciting second part has again the extraordinary quartet taking on the threats to the world with his incredible force. It begins when occur weird events on faraway planets .Meanwhile our friends are living of comfortable manner, as Reed Richards(Ioan Gruffud) and Sue Storm(Jessica Alba) are planning to marry themselves. Mr Fantastic goes to a funny bachelor-party where uses dancing his ability to stretch his body to any shape . But a new dangers appear, as Galactus, an incredible space entity, he has decided that Earth is its next aim and sends Silver Surfer(Doug Jones with voice by Laurence Fishburne). Then the Fantantic four led by Mr Fantastic, the Invisible girl with telekinetic powers, the Human Torch, Johnny Storm(Chris Evans) spreading blazing balls and the super-strong rock hunk named Ben Grimm or Thing(Michael Chiklis and enamored to Alice Masters: Kerry Washington)fight against Silver Surfer, the Galactus's henchman. But again the dangerous enemy Doctor Victor Van Doom(Julian McMahon)is ready to return . The Four are the only ones along with the military(Andre Braugher,Beau Garret) can defeat Galactus, the worlds devourer.

This spectacular comic-books movie contains fantasy, noisy action, humor,romance, thrills and is pretty bemusing. Breathtaking array of technical effects with impressive set pieces illuminate the 4 fantastic's full-blown adventures. The amazing plot is pure entertainment and correctly based on characters created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, as usual appears in a sympathetic cameo. Atmospheric and appropriate musical score, fitting to action by John Ottman. Overwhelming production design , though full of digital effects by Petruccelli. Colorful cinematography by Larry Blanford and rousing visual and special effects by Weta Digital.The motion picture is professionally directed by Tim Story(Barber Shop, Taxi), first part's director.There are several rumors a following with Silver Surfer as starring but is hard to tell if that will happen. The picture will like to Marvel heroes fans.
