This was a lot of fun to watch. I watched in the cinema and thought the silver surfer was amazing. Would definately recommend buying especially if you enjoyed the first film. Also headed with an excellent cast including Julian McMahon returning as the villain Victor Von Doom.
I want these films to be so good (for childhood comics memory at the very least), but they just keep turning out OK..
The banter between The Thing and The Human Torch is as funny and infectious as ever, Jessica Alba is woefully underused again and Mr fantastic is still yet to convince and turns out to still be a bit drippy.
As for the 'bad guys', well you'll be left wondering how they could make the classic baddie Dr Doom into such a panty-waist. The Surfer is admittedly cool and I'll keep my fingers crossed for his solo project, but Galactus? Well, if you are scared by a big cloud, then you better prepare yourself I suppose - we all wanted to see his purple/blue pyjama suit and massive head, but no joy I'm afraid...sigh.
This franchise has yet to strike the balance between family friendly fun (still too much) and earnset superhero adventures (not enough)...roll on number 3 though, I'm still prepared to give it a chance!

Adventure sequel featuring the world's most famous team of astronauts-cum-superheroes. Sue Storm, AKA The Invisible Girl (Jessica Alba), and Reed Richards, AKA Mr. Fantastic (Ioan Gruffudd) prepare for their upcoming, superhero-studded wedding celebration. But Reed is preoccupied by reports of a bizarre, comet-like object hurtling toward the Earth with tremendous force. When the object hits the island of Manhattan, destroying much of the city in its wake, its identity becomes resoundingly clear: 'it' is actually a psychotic villain known as The Silver Surfer (voice of Larry Fishburne) who aims to destroy the Earth. Sue and Reed decide to summon Ben Grimm, AKA The Thing (Michael Chiklis), and Johnny Storm, AKA The Human Torch (Chris Evans) to take on the Surfer - and end up battling not only him, but an obnoxious Army general (Andre Braugher) and the cantankerous Victor Von Doom (Julian MacMahon), who has broken out of his icy prison that held him captive at the end of the first movie.
