Movie Reviews : Ghost Rider - Spirit of Vengeance
I recently reviewed this really quite shoddy Nic Cage offering which sees him return once again to the role of Johnny Blaze in another painfully underwhelming Ghost Rider movie:
Nic Cage returns as the former stunt biker turned fiery demon Johnny Blaze, a superhero on a motorcycle that did a deal with the devil and now turns into a flaming-skulled vigilante and collects souls for the evil one.
The 2007 original Ghost Rider was received moderately well by fans but was panned by critics and nobody was exactly calling out for a follow up. Cage himself is a well-known comic book aficionado and bringing Ghost Rider to the screen was something he had long been interested in doing. He and many others were disappointed with how the original movie turned out and this outing was seen as something of a reboot rather than a direct sequel, a chance to correct what went wrong in the first instance and give Ghost Rider on the big screen another bash. With Crank directors Neveldine/Taylor at the helm, could they inject some fresh life into the flaming one? Unfortunately, the answer is a resounding no.
