Critics are of course going to slay this movie because it's really all about just zany-ness...but a world that completely works for this character. I hated the Crank films so I was surprised to see how much I really enjoyed this. To me, it's like a better budget..a little bit more plot heavy kind of Toxic Avenger film...and I'm a sucker for those movies.
It's a guilty pleasure.
While I am one of the people that maintains Ghost Rider doesn't have to be rated R to be a good film I do agree if they hate just let Neveldine/Taylor just go nuts and do whatever they wanted then this film would have definitely been better with the direction they were going.
