I have been expecting this movie since middle of last year. And the months passed by, the curiosity grew bigger and bigger. And finally, the long wait is over. The marvel opening credit really gives me the creeps. The story of how Johnny Blaze had to sell his soul to the devil(Mephistopheles) just to save his father(Barton) from death(he was diagnosed with lung cancer, I presume) but it has something to do with his smoking… Oooops, better cut on mine. His father didn’t die of cancer, but of a stunt accident. How unfortunate.
Eva Mendes as Roxanne Simpson, Johnny’s childhood sweetheart, who is now a successful TV reporter is so hot. Every scene where she’s in is really something to stare at. And with Mephistopheles’ son, Blackheart calling on the falling angels, the elements of Earth, Water & Fire, a battle is waiting to happen. The visual effects were stunning, including the transformation of his uber-cool motorcycle. Nicholas Cage is convincing as the Ghost Rider, the only superhero that can walk on both worlds. Really worth the wait.
2 down, 18 to go.
