You should list "not enough Jessica Alba shirtless" under the negatives.

What's keeping me away? The ridiculously-short-for-a-comic-movie running time of 92 minutes as well as the PG rating. PG-13 is the rating all movie studios shoot for nowadays. I bet someone at Fox was pissed off when the MPAA came back with the PG. I knew something was wrong when two weeks before the film's release trailers still said "This film is not yet rated." I bet Fox and the producers appealed (bribed) multiple times to get the rating upped to PG-13 to no avail.

I hated the blatant Dodge commercial.

That was indeed lame, jef!

So many critics have panned this film, but I thought it was fantastic (pardon the pun) compared to other current sequels. Spiderman 3 had great special effects, but the story was lame - the characters spent half their time crying during the movie. It's good to have films like 'Batman Begins' and 'Spiderman' (first film) which treat their characters seriously and pay homage to the comics genre, but ROTSS was great in that it injects some much needed humour into the mix as well. Forget about Ang Lee's brooding 'The Hulk' and Spiderman's fun being taken away by his bitchy girlfriend MJ - what you have in ROTSS is a film that isn't afraid to add some fun outside of the serious moments, and becomes a much better film as a result.

This movie was great. Much better than the first Fantastic Four. Yes, Doom was not presented properly, and there are a few inaccuracies, but I highly recommend any Surfer or Fantastic Four fan see this !
