Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer

"Fantastic Four" are Marvel Comics fictional superheroes. first appearing in "The Fantastic Four #1" (Nov, 1961). a monthly FF comic book series. it was the first superhero team created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby. you who watched the movie, may recall a man who wanted to attend Reed n Sue's wedding, whom introduced himself as "Stan Lee"? haha. loved the humor. the overall movie was nice. the rescuing, the scenery effect - the frozen waterfall, a hole in the river. but i was quite disappointed with the ending. i dislike the fact that they are barely involved in saving the world in the end. it causes me to wonder .. "are they not the superheros in FF?", "did superman needed other superhero to save his butt to such an extend?" another personally deeply offended part .. is when reed did his researches behind sue, After promising n saying all those beautiful words in front of sue. n what was the excuse he made? "i just don't want you to worry" .. d'oh !! typical excuse. yes, i know it is live-saving, world-related .. but a promise is a promise !! if he wanted to perform the researches, shouldn't he just confronted n convinced sue? should we all beautify our promises to our loves ones, n does a total opposite behind them? how can Trust be nurture from this point? is relationship not build on trust n love? are they not serious of getting married? can't help but to feel agitated ..
