3: black heart. ok i thought the guy who played his human form was awsome....but when we was at the end and ann beefed up it would of been kewl if he looked more like his comic book version.
I was thinking the same thing.
That was actually the main reason I wanted to see Ghost Rider, to see if Blackheart took on his big demonic form. But alas, he did not, but they portrayed the character well enough for me to like it anyway.
The fights were too short, but they were pretty cool anyway. About those Demons, I take it they were created just for the film?
One thing I loved about the movie was the effects. I thought they were outstanding, and enjoyed Ghost Rider's flame going blue when he was expressing emotion.
One comment was made that the lines were cheesy. Well, I'm not a hardcore Ghost Rider fanatic, but based on what I read of Ghost Rider from the 90's, that's how he talked. Ghost Rider isn't the Beast or Spider-Man, and didn't to have much of a wit or vocabulary other than "Vengence!!!" Voice was perfect, and thought they captured the character of Ghost Rider very well. Also, I really thought the use of a shotgun was good, cause that homages Blaze when he doesn't have the Ghost Rider powers anymore.
Speaking of characters, what was up with the monkey's and jellybeans? Did Johnny Blaze or Dan Ketch ever express any interest in that respect in the comics, or was that just something added to the movie?
And Mephisto was done very well, heck, he even looked pretty right for a move representation.
All in all, not my favorite Marvel movie, but certainly higher on my list than The Hulk or Elektra(I REALLY like Daredevil), and hope the DVD has some good special features.
I'm looking forward to the sequal, even though that won't be for a couple years or so. I would expect Vengence to appear in that.
