Ghost Rider 2 Spirit of Vengeance - Coming Soon /w HD Trailer

Ghost Rider 2 Spirit of Vengeance

While I really was never an Nicolas Cage fan, he has grown on me over the years.  As another Blu-ray release whose special effects can put your home theater to work, Ghost Rider is another good pick.  The sequel is coming out in theaters February 2012.

The sequel cast includes :

Nicolas Cage, while in my opinion for the most part substandard, has had an extensive list of movies hes appeared in.  Some of those movies include Trespass, Conair, Astroboy, Ghost Rider, Next, Knowing and God of War.

Idris Elba?  An actor who was probably offered the job because he accepted less than half what they guy they wanted was demanding for pay.  He's not known for movies like 28 weeks later, Clubbed and The Human Contract.

Ciaran Hinds, an Irish Actor who has spent a lot of time performing in theater has had more experience with successful movies than many others on the cast.  Some movies hes been in include  Munich, Miami Vice, Road to Perdition, Laura Croft, Sum of All Fears and Excalibur.  His role will be as "The Devil".

 Johnny Whitworth is a relatively unknown actor(at least to me) he's played in flicks like Limitless, Kiss the Bride, Pathology and Rainmaker.  His role in the movie will be the villain Blackout.

Violante Placido is an itallian actress who can hopefully keep my attention between special effects. You may remember her from The American with George Clooney or Playboy? She plays the Devil's son's mom in Ghost Rider 2.

Hopefully ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ has more substance than the original.  Ghost Rider is a pretty deep character and there is a lot of potential, not to mention with Blackout as the Villain this movie could be amazing.  Unfortunately, I'm a realist and a skeptic. This movie will likely be about sparse effects and a lack of acting or depth of story.

As for the Storyline Plot Details?
....It is reportedly set several years after the first film and finds Johnny Blaze in self-imposed exile from the world.  Blaze has become a tormented soul, convinced that his powers are a curse – which makes him completely different from every other superhero ever conceived.
Former stuntman Blaze is then approached by Moreau, a member of the monastic order of Michael, the warrior angel.  Moreau seeks a protector for a mother and son duo (Nadva and Dannv, respectively) who are being pursued by a figure named Roarke – a fellow with a detailed knowledge of the Ghost Rider and his “… different identities over the centuries.”

As stated previously, this story could be awesome or.....they do it wrong? It will be complete crap.  There was a lineup on the cast I think would have guaranteed its success........
