I just saw the movie. It wasnÃ¢Â€Â™t a great film by any stretch of the imagination, but it was light years ahead of the original. It was certainly entertaining and I walked out pleased.
The Silver Surfer was definitely the best part of the movie. There definitely is a comparison to Fett with him. They are both anti-heroes, with smaller roles and huge popularity. The Surfer looked great and was well done. Especially during the middle scenes where he was dull with real make up and prosthetics, without CGI.
The Reed Richards actor and Jessica Alba still have zero chemistry. Their entire relationship subplot was as useless as it was in the first movie. AlbaÃ¢Â€Â™s hair and creepy contacts ruined her for me in the movie. She looked best naked and face down on the pavement.
Chiklis and Evans were still the best part of the FF team, and they could even be good with a real director and movie.
Galactus looked incredible and was cool. He was a gigantic swirling cosmic storm, not just a cloud. He was sentient, but didn't talk at all. It worked much better as a force of nature than a giant in pink and purple armor. Of course people will cry about it, but its true.
McMahon was still a pretty good Doom, much better than in the first. He was not a bad choice in the original, the movie was just done poorly.
