Alright kiddos. As you see the flick jump in here to post your thoughts.
Very good. I thought it was a little better than the first and stuff. But they made Galactus a cloud!!!!!! I thought the cloud Idea was cool n stuff, but they should've made the cloud into a humanoid shape, u know?
other than that it was a really good movie.
I was sooooooooo cheesed off when I saw the cloud. It still winds me up hours later. They should have dropped the whole Doom stealing Surfer's powers and given space to a proper show down with Galactus. That was anticlimatic if you like. Galactus is waaaaaay more powerful than SS. If that was a possibility, why did he not do that before? It gave no real impression that Galactus was really sentient either. I liked the rest of the movie, but that ruined it like Superman's illigitimate child ruined his movie. A message to any Hollywood types who may read this. I know you need some poetic license when you bring a comic book character to the silver screen, but please, for the love of God, Leave the core stuff alone!

Horrid, horrid movie.
The cloud is plain silly
Doom was lame again. I was hoping he wouldn't be in this one. His "death" this time was even worse. It's like a cartoon ending. Will he be back? Find out next episode.
The dodge commercial is unforgivable.
Cosmic Sentinel says:
"Also, Galactus is supposed to be way more powerful than the Silver Surfer. If that was an option, why had he never tried before?"
i'm pretty sure that sufer is more powerful than galactus in the comics to mang.
Lil Lucky says:
"FF2 aint come out in England yet...... BUT WHY THE HELL DONT THEY SHOW GALACTUS?"
Yes it has, I watched it at my local cinema last Friday.
I think they could have made the real Galactus work. The 'normals' are already watching a movie about the Fantastic Four and their shiny friend. A big guy in purple is not a big thing. They could have done some really cool stuff with his ship... and have Reed and the Surfer come up with a plan together to use the ship against him. That would have been closer to the original and still a great story keeping the FF4 in the middle of it.
I hated the first one to death. I thought Alba was awful in her role and pretty much nothing worked for me. Of course, this meant that I spent the ten bucks to see the second one. Because I'm a Marvel idiot like that.
And I actually liked it, I thought Alba was much better this time around and though the Silver Surfer lacked an extra bit of oomph he was damned sexy and they got the whole serious-alien thing right. And the portrayal of Galactus was awesome, I don't think the original would have gone over so well with today's crowd. Besides, they already had a few major showdowns throughout the whole movie, another one might have dragged on a little longer. And SS was the focus of the movie, not Galactus.
I liked what they did with the Surfer. I think they should have dropped Doom altogether, or at least put him in the background and set him up for the third movie(alot like Harry in the Spidey films). People say that the comic book Galactus wouldn't have worked, but as I said before, there are already a number of fantastical elements in the film (including the cloud) so I don't think it would have been that big a deal. I think it would have been an awesome last act myself. Check out Silver Surfer taking on Galactus in Marvels #3 and imagine it in full Hollywood Big Screen Style if you don't believe me.
Just saw it. Not bad. I didn't mind it. I was entertained. Galactus/cloud? Yeah that sucked. Maaaaaaaaybe the cloud is supposed to be his ship. I'll just pretend that. That could work better than this:
Guess they fooled us with the one part by Jupiter.
It had it's amusing parts. I went in with low standards so it was better than I thought. Alba did a better job as Sue in this one. I'm not gonna tear it to shreds like others may. I've been reading FF for a looooong time and I could accept this. It was ambitious to try to do Galactus and the Surfer. Oh well. Doom on the surfboard was silly but it fit with him trying to steal the power cosmic.
Now i have not seen the movie yet ...prob wont for alittle while until i get some free time . anyway what i was going to say is that i think what they may have done with galactus was what i have read on the char before to where people see him how their mind can process it . usually its in a form close to how that race of the planet looks but i guess they took some creative license with that idea . Well at least thats how i am going to think about it when i go see it LOL

Side Note: The red area within the cloud also seemed to be the shape of Galactus' helm.
I liked the movies as a whole, all the product placements were a bit ridulous, but I would have rather had Alicia play her role from the original story as the one who reminds Surfer of his humanity instead of Susan reminding Surfer of his lost love.
All in all, it was better than the first, and possibly a more realistic story than the original as far as Surfer's role in Galactus' defeat rather than Mr. Fantastic's.
I saw the movie just now. I thought it was ok. I would've liked to see it stay more faithful to the comic, and all. I thought the cloud was stupid, Galactus should be more humanoid. Also, I was upset that The Watcher and The Inhumans were left out. That made me upset. If those things had been left in, along with the nixing of some stupid dialogue, it would've been a wonderful movie. I lol'ed when Brian Posehn made the appearance. I couldn't stop remembering him as the "Metal By Numbers" guy. Also, Stan Lee's cameo was another funny part. "Whaaa? Of course I'm on the list. I'M STAN LEE!""Uhhhh... nope, you're not."
It was better than I thought it would be, and I had decent expectations.
I was a bit... unsure about the treatment of Galactus, but it was technically not wrong, so I accepted it.
Dr. Doom's involvement was great, and a v. nice MDK by him picked up the pace.
It wasn't horrible like everyone is saying. It's lighthearted, fun, exciting, and not the kind of movie that should be stuck under a microscope.
i really did enjoy the movie
GALACTUS WAS A F$#$ING CLOUD AHHHH
AND IT WASNT SUE THAT MADE SURFER THINK ABOUT WHAT HE WAS DOING IT WAS ALICIA YOU MORONS I HATE YOU MOVIE PRODUCERS
And did anyone else think doom went out rather easily
I did like the end with Johnny and all of the powers combined
