Product Description

Catch a wave of "terrific adventure" and "non-stop action" (CBS-TV) in this fun and fantastically entertaining smash-hit! "Invisible Woman: Sue Storm and "Mr. Fantastic" Dr. Reed Richards are about to be married when a mysterious alien... the Silver Surfer... crashes the proceedings and heralds Earth's impending destruction. With time running out, the Fantastic Four reluctantly teams up with the nefarious Dr. Doom in a thrilling effort to save our planet!

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is another entertaining romp for the Marvel-superhero franchise. Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic (Ioan Gruffudd), is treading on thin ice when his fiancée, Sue Storm, the Invisible Woman (Jessica Alba), thinks he's more interested in a series of cosmic phenomena occurring around the earth than in the preparations for their upcoming wedding. Sorry, ladies, but Reed is right. The disturbances are caused by a surge of cosmic power from a mysterious being called the Silver Surfer (an all-CGI creation, modeled by Doug Jones and voiced by Laurence Fishburne), who not only zooms around the skies on his board, but also has enough power to fight the FF, sometimes by turning their own power against them, not only mixing up Sue and Reed, but also Johnny Storm, the Human Torch (Chris Evans), and Ben Grimm, the Thing (Michael Chiklis). But that's not the worst of it. The Surfer is only an opening act, a herald looking for planets that his master, Galactus, can consume for his sustenance.

With its initial installment, Fantastic Four established itself as the superhero franchise that didn't take itself too seriously, and that continues here. There are numerous moments of laugh-out-loud humor, and the most angst they suffer is whether Sue and Reed will ever be able to live a normal family life. (That, and whether they'll ever really get married, of course.) If Fantastic Four were a normal superhero franchise, the ending would be a knock-down drag-out war with Galactus, featuring the FF in a colossal battle for the planet Earth and the lives of everyone on it. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer… just doesn't do that, and we don't quite get the payoff we expected. Effects are dazzling, but the Surfer looks too metallic, more like a skyriding T-1000 robot. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars This Blu-ray has 3-D pop! October 7, 2007
We've all waited a while to see movies from Fox on Blu-ray, but this one was certainly worth the wait.

I'd say the most amazing thing about this movie is the 3-D pop to an absolutely immaculate picture. Dark scenes, like the starfield and planets in the beginning title sequences and the night skylines of NYC really sparkle. There is no edge-enhancement or pixelization to be found anywhere in the feature.

Bright outdoors scenes like the wedding, and the F4 battle with the Silver Surfer are pure demo material.

The lossless DTS-HDMA is another showcase soundtrack from Fox. Although I can only hear the DTS 1.5 mbps core with my current setup, I can hear the music, rear surround and effects in such a rich presentation that it reminded me of my theatrical viewing of this movie.

There is an awful lot of extra content that I have not begun to explore yet, but the Galactus game is interesting.

Some of the other reviewers here mentioned problems playing the movie. I can understand their frustration, but the insert inside the case clearly advises every viewer to update the software on their Blu-ray player. I would not fault the movie or even Fox studios for this problem, but most likely the player manufacturer's who don't have current firmwares that can play this disc. (Currently only LG and Samsumg are having issues.) I played the movie without a hitch on my Sony BDP-S1 and my PS3. I will mention that the BDP-S1 had firmware that was 2 versions older than the latest. The player handled it flawlessly both before and after I updated to the latest version. It is reported that the Panasonic, Sony, and Pioneer players are working well with this disc.

With the stellar picture and sound quality, extra content and games, this disc is truly worth a purchase if you like this type of film!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Pretty Fantastic June 28, 2007
Of all the sequels we've been fed this summer, I have to admit that "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" best meets its expectations. While other major sequels ("Spidey 3" and "Pirates 3") take a decidedly darker tone, "Surfer" kicks up the fun a notch. This should be expected since the previous film and the comic that it is based on is a lot more lighthearted and family-oriented than other films and books of this genre. In "Surfer," director Tim Story isn't tied down to an origin story. He is given free reign of the action in the film and does not let anybody down. All of the original core actors (Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis) have returned (including good ol' Doom, Julian McMahon). The newest addition to this film is the Silver Surfer, the galactic herald of Galactus, a cloud-like being that consumes planets to stay alive. I won't go into comic geek mode, but just know that Galactus is not a cloud in the comics. I do think that the handling of the character in the film, however, is perfect.

When the Surfer arrives on Earth, an Army general (played wonderfully by the underappreciated Andre Braugher) demands that Reed Richards create a sensor to track him and find out what he's doing on Earth. The only problem is that Richards is helping Sue Storm plan their oft-cancelled wedding, Ben Grimm is heating up his relationship with Alicia and Johnny Storm is trying to get sponsorships and girls. It all leads up to the return of Victor Von Doom who gladly offers to assist the military in figuring out what the Surfer is all about.

From there, we are given a healthy dose of light comedy and action in the form of a bickering/normal family trying to battle an old foe and figure out if the new guy is a friend or foe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie and Blu Ray Disc October 7, 2007
I saw this movie at the theatre and thought it was really good. I then was psyched when I saw that it was being released on Blu Ray. The video and sound are even better than what I would have expected. This is a must own for any fan of comic book movies or if you want to show off your blu ray player.

4.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC PICTURE AND SOUND!!! October 5, 2007
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First, the negative reviews below need checking out. The one saying that half of the players won't play it is bogus. It has been determined only two models of Blu-ray players haven't been able to play the movie, not half! Second, the one from Wiggins is obviously a HD-DVD fanatic. Check out his other reviews and you will see he only knocks the two recent Blu-ray titles but gives glowing reviews to anything HD-DVD. It is obvious he doesn't have FF or Day After Tomorrow, that he is just rehashing news to scare away anyone from buying anything Blu-ray. Very immature.

I played the FF: Rise of the Silver Surfer movie last night and it is gorgeous. The story isn't that great, but did we buy Hi-Def for story? No, the visuals make up the story. And, wow, the clarity of the images is something to see, definitely one of the best to come out on Blu-ray. Breathtaking at times in the depth. There is a DTS track, too, which sound phenomenal! Together, audio and video, make a powerful experience.

As to the extras, many of them are also in 1080p, and there are a lot of them. I admit the two games moved a little bit slow, but otherwise okat. (They are nothing special, anyway. One that runs slow is a trivia game, no big deal. The other is a strategy game but you don't do anyting but pick planets in the game.) All the other extras work perfectly. I am sure a firmware uprade will correct the slowness of the games (and HD-DVD fans are jumping all over this, forgetting, however, the HD-DVD machines they have have had to go through firmware upgrade after upgrade after upgrade) (Let he who is without upgrades cast the first stone).

Loading time for the disc is a bit longer than Pirates of the Caribbean, but that's fine, I am in no hurry.

All in all, I would recommended seeing this title.

Pretty good movie
Well, Jackson, it looks like there's not too many Fantastic Four comic book fans on these forums, let alone people who liked the movie. Fortunately I am one who collected the comic book in the past and I even find the first movie entertaining. We can't expect them to closely follow the story of... Read More

Jessica Alba..Did she have blue eyes in the first movie as well??
I saw the both movies in the theater, and I don't remember her eyes being so blue in the first one. Strangely, I just caught part of the 2nd movie on HBOHD, and it looks like they've gotten rid of those weird blue eyes she had when the movie was in theaters. Guess I wasn't the only one who... Read More
