OOOPS! I forgot Movie Review Monday!

I was just looking over my blog and realized I forgot this week's Movie Review Monday! So, since you are all sitting on the edge of your seats awaiting my opinion - here goes!

Movie Review #7
Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Starring: Michael Chiklis, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd

Rated: Rated PG for sequences of action violence, some mild language and innuendo.

Type of Movie: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Superhero

Description: With Von Doom back in his homeland of Latveria the fantastic four have new troubles when Galactus has decided that Earth is his next target. When his henchman, The Silver Surfer (Norrin Radd), is sent to Earth he discovers that he's getting more than he bargained for when he encounters the Fantastic Four. But that's not all when Dr. Doom decides that after two years in the homeland he is ready to return.

OK for Kids? Depends - on how much bad language you are comfortable with them hearing. There are a few uses of the "A" word and "C*AP", and maybe a few others. A few suggestive lines as well.

See it in theater or rent? Rent, if you see it. Don't think it's at the theater anymore. If you rent, definitely use RED BOX, to rent for $1 a night. I wouldn't want to pay Blockbuster's $4.5 to see it.

Opinion: I took my 12 year old son and his friend to see this movie. It wasn't as good as the first Fantastic Four. I wish the language had not been so bad, but, and this doesn't excuse him hearing it - he does hear worse at school everyday (even at Christian summer camps he hears worse - but don't get me started!). Luckily (as far as I know) my son does not use this language and knows better . . . .

The story line kept me entertained, but it was nothing special and if you don't see it you aren't missing anything!

Rating: (out of 5)

My hubby watched this without me. I haven't been able to watch it yet. I did enjoy the first one.

Well, I'm far too old for this movie....but I wanted to say how I agree with the language problem. I have seen some great movies that would have been just as great without the bad language. Thanks for leaving a comment of my site...I'm meeting the nicest people here in blogland. :)

I was hoping this one was better than the first one cuz I didn't think the first one was all that great!

Yeah, sometimes I avoid seemingly good movies due to the languauge!
