Default Re: Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance - Rate & Review Thread

I give it 3/10

It was riddled with cliches and plagued by a predictable plot filled with "twists" that anybody could forsee 20 minutes before they're "revealed".
Not to mention the moronic way Ghost Rider moves and supposedly "scares" his victims. He stumbles around like a drunk, one-legged scarecrow and screams his head off in the faces of everyone he sees. That's about 99% of how Ghost Rider fights in this movie.
The sad thing is that I don't know if that were the actual director's vision and direction, or was that just Nicholas Cage being whatever the Hell Nicholas Cage is.

Oh, and let's not forget the stereotypical, culturally-insensitive character portrayed by Idris Elba. I mean have you seen his impersonation of a French stereotype?! I mean GOD!

(The last one was in jest, but seriously Idris Elba was awesome.)

All will be well.
