Ghost Rider

Glad I managed to catch this movie with woc. ^^ Interesting that I never knew that this Marvel character even existed til earlier this year when I had my movie spree in Jan and saw the trailer. The special effects are so cool!!! Pretty decent acting though not much suspense in the plotline (didn't help that we had a "helpful" father-son duo behind us giving a running commentary in chinese...) Also have a new actor to swoon over. Matt Long who plays the 17 year old Jonhy Blaze. With the special effects literally burning up the tarmac, Ghost Rider is DEFINITELY worth a watch in the cinema (unlike Epic Movie that looks amusing but prob worth just watching at home on a tv set). As I already mentioned, no suspense here. Pretty much the usual good triumphs over evil, love conquers all kinda storyline. (Watcha expect? It IS based on a comic series!!) Interesting how the FIRE element seems to be able to overpower EARTH, WIND, and even WATER. Thought it was kinda like scissors-paper-stone where earth and fire basically don't do much to each other, wind strengthens fire, and water kills fire? Yet another interesting thought that popped up at the end of the movie: #01 top perk of being a Ghost Rider - green transport since cool bike (oops, meant "trusty steed") runs on a renewal resource, brimstone fire from hell. (Just imagine trying to use petrol with all those flames. Asking for an explosion to happen!! Or maybe that's why EVERYTHING's on fire - petrol leakage *grinz*)
