Just saw this in a rather bizarre "regional Premiere". The film had its good moments, particularly Stan Lee's cameo and some of the other lighter moments which continued to establish the camaraderie of the Four, whilst some of the stunts and special effects were sufficiently spectacular.
The early build-up in the film was reasonably well-paced as the enigmatic surfer wreaked havoc over much of the globe, but the climax failed to build up adequate tension and ends with something of an unexplained deus ex machina.
Finally you end up being left with a feeling of "so what?" There is some light entertainment in this film but little emotional involvement, as the short run-time (less than ninety minutes) scarcely allows for more than by-the-numbers plotting.
