Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer comes out today!

Four daft people with accidental super powers fight crime. Will the arrival of the Silver Surfer make the Fantastic Four sequel any good, or not?

The Silver Surfer on the big screen

Well, the wait’s over: today, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer gets released, and we all get to find out whether it’ll be a crushing disappointment or not.

On the one hand, the trailers looked really cool; the early reviews have been mostly positive; and the Surfer is being ‘played’ (though not voiced) by Doug Jones, who does lots of cool bodywork.

On the other hand, not many people liked the first film (I’m one of them, in fairness); lots of people are very invested in the characters and storylines of the Silver Surfer and Galactus; and, er, have you seen Jessica Alba’s hair?

Plus there’s the fact that half the world is probably going to think it’s about pensioners using chatrooms.
