Summary: "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" 10 Scale Rating: 1.0 (Horrible) ... The Good: Well, the motorcycle was cool ... The Bad: Nicholas Cage. The dialog. The corny action. Turning a cool badguy (Blackout) into a cheesy one line machine. I didn't think it possible, but this movie was drastically worse than the first one.
Excerpt: This movie wasn't terrible but it wasn't good either - it falls in between. I hate how they changed the appearance of the Ghost Rider. It was much better in the first movie. After seeing the movie, I read this was a re-boot. If so, it was a poorly done re-boot. The movie did have some strong points and kept me entertained, but I don't see myself watching it a lot. PQ, however, is superb. As is audio.
Ghost Rider On Crank: Cageaholics Rejoice Popcorn Meter-3.0 Rewa
6 November 2012
Excerpt: This is a crazy movie. The guys from Crank 1&2 directed this. It shows. Spoiler alert: One part mentions how the angel, that is now The Spirit of Vengeance, was driven insane. Nic Cage, at his best/worst, portrays this quite well. It's a decent popcorn move. But, it doesn't have much of a rewatchable factor. Once is probably enough(Maybe too much). The picture is good. The 3D, not so much. This was a post converted movie. So, not much was expected going in.
Summary: I would recommend to a friend providing that they have a "Blue Ray" DVD player. I thought this was a "Regular" DVD instead I received a "Blue Ray" DVD which I can not use. I am going to take it to the store and hopefully get an exchange.
Excerpt: Movie: wow what a disappointment this movie was really bad. Acting was just flat alone with the story line... Picture: looked good blacks were strong but greens were very muted. Wouldn't use this as a reference but it's nothing bad. 3d: the 1st five minutes of the film gave me a headache. You cannot have a 3D film with a shaky camera. After that it calms down but the depth is just enough to be notable.
Excerpt: Well it really is not as bad as people say it is. Ghost Rider's skull looks way better in this one. The script is not the best yes but it does entertain and that is the main thing for a movie like this. The 3D is actually not bad either its crystal clear only crosstalk spotted was the same plays the reviewer on this site said but its very minimal and hardly noticeable.
Summary: HAHAHAHA WHAT THE F*CK. HOW DID THIS B-MOVIE END UP IN THE THEATERS? DID THE DIRECTOR FORGET TO SEND IT INTO THE DIRECT-TO-DVD PILE?! NEVER ON THIS PLANET SHOULD A FILM PACKED WITH **** QUALITY AND GREEDY ACTORS LIKE THIS BE MADE!!!!
