  Terrible movie

| | See all mrees007's reviews (32)

Very bad film... I question why Nicolas Cage made it. The first one was ok'ish, but this last one has put the nail in the coffin. Please give back to Marvel/Disney and see if they can do a better job. Avoid!

  The ghost rider in a poor movie

| | See all dantai's reviews (1)

im one of the lucky ones who rented not bought the dvd/blu ray. if u do think about buying it wait to go cheap or at the boot sale trust me yr not missing much. now the only good thing about this film and what they done was make the ghost rider look like a bad ass not like the first one where he got small hands and a head with a big body. i found out in the film they didnt have a great money behind and no wanted to which its not there fault bec the script was poor and now becof that there will never be a third one, i dont no if that a good thing or a bad its up to you if be prefer on the dvd or in the comic.

  Very Disapointed

Had high hopes for this sequel , didnt live up to my expectations no where near as good as the first one , special effects are poor , first one done it so much better , story was not as good as the first one , in general they did a very poor job of what could of been a good film, was looking forward to seeing this film now feel let down and disappointed.

This outing of ghost rider makes the 1 st movie a master class in acting, story and effects. featureless locations,lack of story, bad acting.
Nick Gage looks too old for this part. let,s hope marvel get this back in house and reboot as soon as possible. this is one of only 3 disc i,ve bought that will go straight up for sale. bad, bad, bad. not worth one star.

  bad,so bad!

If you liked the first ghost rider you will HATE this one. Characters different from first, makes no sense and has obviously only been made to get in on the 3D trend. If I could click no stars or even minus stars I would have. Steer well clear!

  'EXTRA POINT FOR THE 'VISUAL' CONTENT

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (896)

the film doesn't quite equal the polish of the first one, however it does have some good one-line quips from 'nicholas cage' and is a visual treat.
'johnny blaze' is offered the chance to reverse the deal he made with the devil to save his father, he has to save a boy ( danny ) from the clutches of the devil.
some good action sequences are on board, though i did find the first half of the movie a little slow, thankfully the second half did pick up pace.
love 'nicholas cage' as an actor, sort of hoping he doesn't agree to a making a third in the series.

  MORE A DAMP SQUIB THAN BLAZE OF GLORY!

| | See all MovieAddict's reviews (1336)

Whether you're trading your soul for your Dad's life or just another fat pay cheque and a name above the poster, deals with the devil are never a good idea. It's been five years since stunt rider Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) signed on the line and became Beelzebub's flaming biker bounty hunter. Sniffing out evil and sucking the souls out of bad guys whenever his head catches on fire, Blaze finally wants rid of his cursed vigilante alter ego. A visit from Idris Elba's (far too good to be in this) mad monk convinces him that salvation lies in rescuing a creepy child from the clutches of Ciaran Hinds' ( brilliant actor, but did he read the script?) scenery munching Satan and he sets off for Eastern Europe's cheapest shooting locations to set things right.
Helmed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (purveyors of Crank's glorious over the top opera of silliness) Ghost Rider's second road trip is less the rollicking highway to hell it could have been, and more like the bargain bin of a motorway service station. The first film although was savaged by critics and fans alike was a big budget adaption and had good production values. This second attempt looks like it was made with pocket change left over from the likes of Thor, Captain America, The Avengers Assemble and The Amazeing Spiderman. It's hindered by being burdened with a saggy midriff that spends far too much time milling about with monks, the film goes flatter than its own post conversion 3D.
Thankfully, Nicolas Cage and his wig are just as multi dimensional as anybody could ever hope for. Oddly humourless, one of the dullest Marvel adaps still manages to be frequently hilarious thanks to Cage's wide eyed, twitchy masterclass in overacting. Looking like a middle aged man on a permanent acid trip, his banshee scream of "I'll eat your stinking soul!" is destined for YouTube greatness on the second volume of 'Nicolas Cage losing the plot again'. Elba and Hinds do their bizarre best to keep up, but they're both held back by too many years of subtlety and restraint.
A handful of lustreless FX showdowns are used as so so bookends, but without the Western kookiness and half as much hot chain,whipping action, it somehow manages to make the 2007 original look pretty good. Not for nothing is the most memorable moment doused in a stream of flaming pee.....
It's funny in all the wrong places and long at 95 minutes. Cage might be on fine psychotic form, but the flaming skull barely manages a sizzle this time around.
See if you like......
Ghost Rider.
The Punisher.
Punisher War Zone.
