This evening I saw the movie "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" at JP Theater, Causeway Bay.
The first movie, "Fantastic Four" of the series was not so great. I particularly do not like the actor, Michael Chiklis who played the character "Ben Grimm". Chiklis is most recognized for his role as "Vic Mackey" in the TV series, "The Shield". That is the character I keep associating him with, and his character as "Ben Grimm" in "Fantastic Four" was not distinctive enough to change that for me.
One good thing about latest movie in the series, is that Chiklis was only himself; without "The Thing" makeup, in two short scenes. The rest of the plot was a bit weak. They expected the audience to have seen the first movie, which I believe is always a bad thing to assume for a sequel.
The other good thing with this movie was the CG. Unfortunately, that is the only thing one can look forward to.
