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.
