Whoa Whoa Whoa, This Movie Was Supposed To Be Terrible!

Ghost Rider was never my favourite comic book character, and the movie adaptation of the comic starring Nicolas Cage was nothing short of atrocious, so believe me when I say that I had zero confidence in the abilities of directors Neveldine and Taylor (of Crank and Gamer fame) to bring the franchise back from total disaster. When Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was announced, it didn’t even register on my radar. That’s how uninterested I was. But now the first trailer has arrived and…and…well, it doesn’t look terrible. In fact, it looks like a pretty fun time! And the special effects have certainly improved. Could this movie actually be…dare I say it…entertaining? I don’t expect a masterpiece here, but for an action movie about a guy who turns into a motorcycle-riding, flaming skeleton, it actually looks like it delivers. And I will admit to laughing at the pee gag.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance comes out February of 2012.
