Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer ★½ 2007 (PG)

They weren't fantastic the first time and this sequel is almost as dull. Mr. Fantastic (Gruf-fudd) keeps getting distracted while trying to marry invisible sweetie Sue (Alba). But he's got good reason, with intergalactic traveler Silver Surfer deciding to visit our little planet. Seems dead planets follow in the visitor's wake and the mild foursome doesn't want that happening to Earth. At least the 3-D animation for the Surfer deserves a look-see. 92m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . US Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis, Julian McMahon, Doug Jones, Andre Braugher, Kerry Washington, Gonzalo Menendez; D: Tim Story; W: Don Payne, Mark Frost; C: Larry Blanford; M: John Ottman; V: Laurence Fishburne.
