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

I watched this again last night, and the movie does have some good moments sprinkled throughout, and the final chase/fight scene really does save the movie from being totally worthless, the action and a couple of other scene's (I really liked Moreau's death scene and Elba was awesome as the character anyway) really did help not make this movie a waste of time.

But the script, acting (with the exception of Idris Elba, Nic Cage, and the italian chick wasnt bad either), plotting, etc were all severly lacking. I mean, arent these guys script writers? Didnt they write Crank and other movies they have directed? Couldnt they have at least polished up the script a bit? They had decent actors there but they just had terrible things to work with, its like they didnt even try, its like the directors were just getting a payday, if that was the case, why even bother hiring them if they werent interested?

I just dont get it, why not try and make a good movie and reap the rewards that come from that? Surely a better reviewed movie would have made more money? I just dont get it.
