Synopsis: - taken from Yahoo! Movies
The enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of the Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost.

My thoughts:
I say F4:ROTSS is another Sequel Survivor for 2007. Story is simple and straight forward, which is nowadays lots of film makers had neglected. Film makers are trying too hard to compete with each other, coming out with over-clever ideas/plots, and most of the time resulting in producing crappy movie - lost focus!

A good squeeze for a 1hr30min movie. They managed to explain how and why things, the way they are (at least in F4 universe) and leave trails for another sequel(s).

Silver Surfer ROX!!! However, I feel that voice over for the role isn't that suitable. Don't get me wrong, nothing wrong with this talented actor's voice, I just find he's not my choice for Silver Surfer's voice.

Anyway, Jessica Alba is HOT+GORGEOUS, too bad, the movie didn't leave her much room(s) to perform.

I say: worth watching!

If you are new to MARVEL Comics' characters, and wondering Who is the Silver Surfer?, you can check out this offical Wiki site, put up by FOX. Just a gentle reminder, the site might contain SPOILER Content to the movie.
