Ghost Rider

lostsatyr and I saw Ghost Rider this afternoon.

I'm not going to claim it was great, but I was entertained. And the Spider Man 3 and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer trailers were added bonuses (the Silver Surfer! *insert fangirl squeeing here* I may go see the movie just for ol' Norrin Radd).

The mix of Johnny Blaze's origin story, Dan Ketch's look and powers, and Vengeance's (?) motorcycle actually did work for me. I was pleased they kept the "twist" of the Blaze GR origin in, even if they made the guy Johnny tried to save *his* dad instead of Roxanne's.

It was also entertaining to see the homage to the original Ghost Rider, even if they changed him from a masked vigilante to "the Devil's bounty hunter." And the scene with the two Ghost Riders riding across the desert side by side on the way to the final showdown was very cool-looking.

The actor playing young Johnny was quite attractive, as was the actor playing "Blackheart" (their version of Daimon Hellstrom, maybe? He was supposed to be the Devil's son), if you're into Gothic-looking. And Eva Mendes is easy on the eyes, too.

Blackheart is a Marvel supernatural baddie from the early 90s. He's the "son" of Mephisto in the comics.
