From The Movie Snob
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (D). Maybe I would’ve liked this movie better if I had seen the first one. Nah. The Fantastic Four are four normal humans endowed with superhuman abilities for some reason–cosmic radiation I think. Two of them are engaged to be married, superscientist Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd, Amazing Grace) and superbabe Susan Storm (Jessica Alba, Sin City). But love must wait when the arrival of the Silver Surfer (Doug Jones, Pan’s Labyrinth) means that the Earth will be destroyed by Galactus, a sort of interstellar tornado, in eight days. Plus Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon, um, Fantastic Four), who was pretty much destined to be a supervillain with a name like that, is hanging around to cause trouble. But what really caught my attention were Jessica Alba’s freaky blue contact lenses, which made her eyes look like they were about to pop right out of her head.
