Consensus: While an improvement on its predecessor, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is nevertheless a juvenile, simplistic picture that has little benefit beyond its special effects.

Dana Stevens

An off-brand superhero movie, the cinematic equivalent of one of those generic breakfast cereals with a badly drawn squirrel for a mascot.

The first movie's genesis story was more fun than the perfunctory doomsday scheme trotted out here.

Largely an improvement over its predecessor, this is a decent attempt at bringing the FF's adventures to the big screen, but still a few fixes away from truly being fantastic.

The performances are plywooden, the cornball visual gags are groanworthy, and Tim Story still can't direct his way out a sack with a map.

If you swept the cosmic dust of the superhero boom into a flimsy dustpan, you'd have the Fantastic Four franchise.

It's funnier and splashier than the original, but I still can't quite recommend it.

AV Club

Many complaints were lobbed at Fantastic Four but no one ever suggested it was too smart. Yet it would seem that everyone came to the sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer, determined to dumb it down.

Scott Huver

A little tastier but still far from a gourmet feast.
