Here’s the synopsis:

Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

*SPOILERS START HERE*

Various sites have confirmed reports that one of the villains will be in fact a recently used character from the Marvel mainstream comics, ‘Iron Patriot’.

The armor made its first appearance in 2009’s “Dark Avengers” #1. Following the events of the “Secret Invasion” crossover, Norman Osborn was mistakenly heralded as an American hero and tasked with leading a group of government-sanctioned Avengers. Taking the technology from Stark Industries, Osborn designed his suit to represent the then-recently-deceased, Captain America.

Due to Spider-Man being owned by Sony (movie rights), the man behind the mask won’t be William Dafoe or anyone named Norman Osborn, but actor James Badge Dale (The Grey, Shame), who recently joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3.

“Dale will play Eric Savin. In the Marvel comicbooks, he’s a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army put in charge of Project: Ultra. After stepping on a land mine, cybernetic surgery is performed on him and he’s resurrected as the cyborg Coldblood.” – Variety

Also noted by ‘Variety’, is that this movie will feature more elements from the ‘Extremis’ story line (comic book), which the first movie took ideas from as well. Though to my personal understanding, the only thing that was based off that story was the design of the suit for the movie.

The two differences is the man behind the mask and the colour scheme.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengence 3D

Even he looks mad about this movie.

Even he looks mad about this movie.

Does anyone remember the movies Crank/Crank 2: High Voltage? I do, and they were fun. Not this movie though. Directed by the same people who brought you Crank 1 & 2 (Mark Neveldine
Brian Taylor) & written by Recent Batman Movie Fame, David S. Goyer. I say this: In all honesty, MARVEL based comic movies are better movies minus maybe 5 movies which are arguably trashy, all of which aren’t even “Marvel Studios” made movies, but rather “Fox”/”Sony” made. BUT THIS MOVIE IS AN INSULT TO FILM!!

This sequel to “Ghost Rider” movie, was.. Well.. much less than I had expected,* Which wasn’t much, just like my “Chronicle” Review (seen here > https://t.co/bBXhMLCH)

“GHOST RIDER” is a Marvel Comics character. Here is a quick bio: Johnny Blaze, a motorcycle stunt performer in a traveling circus, sold his soul to one whom he believes to be Satan but actually is the demon Mephisto, in order to save his stepfather, “Crash” Simpson, from cancer. Crash later dies in a motorcycle accident and Mephisto attempts to take Blaze’s soul, only to be thwarted by Crash’s daughter Roxanne, who had learned of the deal and had prepared a counter-spell based on selfless love. Since Roxanne interrupted in the middle of the pact, Mephisto could only bind half the soul of a demon with Blaze, making him transform only at night Blaze then finds himself transforming into a demonic entity at nightfall, during which times he wields strange powers. He is called the Ghost Rider for his strange appearance. As time goes on, he is able to call on his demonic abilities whenever he wishes, not just at night. Blah blah blah.

Nick Cage reprise’s role as Johnny Blaze & minus the name, and the same lead actor, this sequel movie felt more like a reboot to a pretty pointless character with all the new faces, tools, props, settings, & overall tone. The story for this movie is Johnny Blaze, a man who made a deal with the Devil who called himself Roarke at the time, is on the run trying to make sure no-one is harmed by his alter ego, The Ghost Rider. He is approached by a Monk named Moreau who tells him that he can help be him free of the Rider, but first, he needs Johnny’s help to protect a boy, whom Roarke has plans for.

    Nicolas Cage
    Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider

    Ciarán Hinds
    Roarke

    Idris Elba
    Moreau

    Fergus Riordan
    Danny

*SPOILER WARNING*

The movie starts out pretty decent. The scenery was very beautiful, even though it was short lived. Then we’re introduced to “Moreau” and he seems to have brought some unwanted guest to a random chapel, where we learn right off the bat that they are after this little boy. Some hell is then opened and a chase ensues, which leads to Moreau being flung off his bike, and turning (mid-air) like a Boss, to buss some shots into the attackers car. Love a movie that starts off with a crazy action sequence, or just action in general. But that really was the main highlight of the film. We are then treated to the WORSE ACTING Nick cage has EVER DONE IN HIS ENTIRE CAREER! ( I swear, his best moment was giving his son the name “Kal-el” aka Superman”)

Nick cage has been known to be “over the top, but really, He killed this movie in every wrong way possible. Elba’s acting skills & powerful voice couldn’t even help this movie. Maybe cause his english accent was clashing with his fake french one. Its sad that the best actor in a movie with some “legends”, becomes the unheard of child actor.

The 3D quality in the movie even became pretty crappy. The picture seemed very spotty and not as great with the depth as one would have hoped. That’s what you get when you convert to 3D in post production. The directors tried to make the movie a lot more like a horror movie, but with the crap acting, and the random cuts, & cinematography it just became pointless to deem this movie worthy of anything. Thank God I saw it with someone who could poke fun of it while watching it. This is as bad as “Catwoman” (the one with Halle Berry) if not worse.

Overall rating of the movie: 1 out of 5, Cinematography: 1 outta 5, Editing: 1 out of 5, Audio: 1.5 out of 5, Acting: 1.6 out of 5.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!
