Synopsis


Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
Crank co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor helm this sequel to 2007's Ghost Rider that finds Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) summoning his infernal alter ego to help rescue a ten-year-old boy from the Devil incarnate. Tracked to a secluded area of Eastern Europe and approached by a clandestine sect of the church with word that the apocalypse is at hand, Johnny realizes that his only hope for breaking the curse of the Ghost Rider is to prevent the Devil (Ciaran Hinds) from taking possession of a young boy (Fergus Riordan) who may be humanity's last hope against the forces of darkness. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Ghost Rider is awesome!

    Okay, I am going to try not to give too much of the movie away to any one that is hoping to go buy it. Let me start with Ghost Rider is the best comic character ever!!! With that being said, that is the only reason I gave this movie a rating of 3 stars. I am a huge Ghost Rider fan and this movie really disappointed me. Moreau was a good character, Carion was a good character, Nic Cage was good too (when they didn't have him "extreme" acting and jittering around)...even the mother was a good character in it. Unfortunately Sony screwed this movie up so bad by changing Danny's story line, they could've easily made this into the Spirit of Vengeance comic line w/ Blaze losing most of his power but still helping out the new rider, and Danny becoming the new Ghost Rider would've been a great lead into future movies...but instead they came out with this mixed up decayed script and filming that was an ultimate failure. Ghost Rider doesn't levitate, he doesn't drive a cruddy looking bike, his biker gear/clothes don't look like burnt marshmellows would...the direction of this movie was horrible as it was made by the people that did Crank as a movie of Crank. While I love Crank it was not the way to do a comic movie, too jittery way too often in the movie...made it cheesy and lame. This movie should have had more ties to the first since that one had a much better story, and again...it really didn't. Ultimately, if I wasn't a huge fan of Ghost Rider I would've never seen this in theater or bought the bluray (so I guess they win since I did still buy the bluray). Another disappointment was Best Buy had an exclusive steel book case if you reserved your copy early. I reserved mine as soon as it was available and there was supposed to be combo disc sets as there are with most movies these days. When I went to buy the movie I was told that it was a last minute change by the company (Sony) to make more money by only selling individual discs...WTH? My kids follow my lead and look up to me and they like most of the same things I do. I am a huge Ghost Rider fan, so they follow suit. How disappointed they were to see the bluray didn't come w/ a DVD copy for them to watch in their room. Another disappointment since there is no way I would ever pay double the cost for this movie. I will have to wait for it to join part 1 int he $5.00 DVD bin before they ever get a copy to watch on their DVD players...what a let down.

    Plain Bad!

    Wow..... I can honestly say, in my entire life of twenty-six years, I have never seen a worst movie. And that's saying a lot, there are some bad films out there. Every aspect of the film is horrible. The first film, I enjoyed. Wasn't the best film, but it was fun. I like plain, simple fun movies. However, the follow up was just a a sad excuse of a movie. Now I'm not sure, but it seems whichever company produced the film wasn't able to get the rights to certain things. Many things have changed, and for the worst. The bike in this movie is a joke, the characters are a joke, the story is a joke, everything is a joke. This has to be Nicholas Cages worst performance EVER! It made great actors look bad. I absolutely love Marvel and their films but this should of never seen the light of day. Whoever let this film out should be banned from the film industry. The only excuse for somebody to own this movie is if they have a crazy idea of owning every Marvel title(myself). For the love of God, stay away from this film. Don't buy it, don't rent it, don't even watch it at a friend's place who happens to be watching it. If he's watching it, he's not your friend. I can't stress enough how much I hate this film.

    Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is by far one of the absolute worst. Not just superhero movies, just movies in general. They're trying to compete with The Dark Knight by making it dark as that movie but they failed miserably. This movie is complete utter garbage. The whole movie is a big mistake. The effects are lazy. The CGI is terrible. The bad guys in this movie are stupid. The acting is all around bad. The plot is horrendous. If you're looking for good superhero flicks, stay away from this one. This movie will be a bad taste in your mouth.

    I'm not a movie basher but I just could not get into this one. Purchased for my son but really could not sit through it. I had a tough time connecting with the main characters but maybe that was by design as GR is supposed to be a loner. I wouldn't say don't buy it. But it may be a rental option before you purchase unless this is a must have to complete your super hero collection.

    Just as Good as the First

    Loved this movie so much. I was happy that what was in the trailers was in the movie. If you loved the first this is a must see, the rider shows a darker side with Nicholas Cage fighting the darkness inside. I was very sad when the movie ended, it went by fast and I was like noooooo. Good things come in twos, ghost rider and ghost rider spirit of vengence are awsome.

    Sub-par Marvel Character Movie

    So, I'm not a Nick Cage fan....but I am a fan of the Ghost Rider character. Plot was sketchy and disjointed and Cage came off silly when trying to be dark and threatening. CGI was good and the new villain's "powers" were pretty cool. Buy it cheap if you like the character, otherwise catch it online and forget it shortly after.

    The first Ghost Rider was better in my opinion, considering the story and plot. There wasn't as much happening in this one, but the action and effects did not disappoint. If you're a comic to movie fan, you can't miss it. If you're looking for a well rounded flick, it may not be your thing.

    Not near as good as the first Ghost Rider movie

    This was a very poor follow up to the first Ghost Rider movie. The characters weren't well written and the change of scene/area for the location left a lot to be desired. The only acting done well was by Nicholas Cage. The other characters were either poorly written for the plot or poorly acted.
