OUR CRIT­ICS AVOID

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Film -

Fan­tas­tic Four: Rise of the Sil­ver Surfer ( PG): The spe­cial ef­fects are im­pres­sive but the char­ac­ters and the plot­ting leave a lot to be de­sired. This is a su­per­hero fran­chise that’s strictly for pre­teens, even though themes of ter­ror­ism and tor­ture emerge amid all the comic­book fan­tasy. — D. S.

Nancy Drew ( PG): It seems odd that the Nancy Drew sto­ries — first filmed in 1938- 39 — should be re­vived and mod­ernised. This old- fash­ioned girlde­tec­tive con­cept just doesn’t work in a con­tem­po­rary set­ting. — D. S.
