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

Just saw it on DVD.

Should have been called Ghost Rider: Empty Highways of Eastern Europe

The GR effects were pretty good, the mannerisms were suitably creepy at times and laughably wacky (in a bad way) at others.

Everything else was just...terrible. Nic Cage was not playing Johnny Blaze in any way, shape or form. He was some drugged out lunatic who happened to turn into Ghost Rider.

The other actors were either just bad or had very little to work with (Idris Elba, what a wasted talent in this film). The story was weak and thin, and the pacing was really off. Score was completely forgettable.

Ugh... I want my hour and a half back, please.

(at least Sony will probably give up on GR at this point, and we can hope Marvel will get the rights back soon and maybe do something respectable with the character)
