Most people either watch Fantastic Four because it is Marvel, or the very hot Jessica Alba and Chris Evans. Unfortunately, this sequel is not marvelous and would not sizzle the screen.

Invisible Woman can’t wait to get married to Mr Fantastic and get babies, and Human Torch can’t wait to get more babes. Is there more to it? Perhaps a short shirtless scene from Chris Evan would add temperatures. Nah, I think not.

There is a new villain, The Silver Surfer, who destroys Earth (think Independence Day) as he races around on his surfer board. As he crosses from country to country, his one-dimensional character and monotonic voice (oh, it’s Laurence Fishburne) do not add value to the doomed state. (On another hand, I must count the number of times the London Eye is destroyed in disaster movies, and China is portayed as some brightly-lighted slum.)

While there was time for some character development in the first movie, this is a straight forward story telling of heroes meets villain. There’s lots of cheesy lines, half the fun and none of the emotions. More for the young. Next.
