Really? Only two-stars on average? Have you no sense of fun?,
This review is from: Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance [DVD] (DVD)
If you hate daft action adventure flicks with idiosyncratic stars, speaking in dodgy foreign accents, riding obscure motorcycles which happen to be on fire, then you will not enjoy this film.
I loved it. It's a romping yomp with Nic Cage twitching and blazing on board a V-Max; Idries Elba speaking in a most peculiar accent and kind-of riding a Ural, and Christopher Lambert with a shaved head, tattoos and a big sword. Oh, and the devil, some trick riding stunts, lots of gunfire and flames, not too much reliance on cgi but some nifty sets and traditional FX, a dodgy script but a half-decent plot. And lots of fun.
Really, this film doesn't take itself too seriously, and it gave us an enjoyable couple of hours entertainment. The special features are unusually comprehensive and intelligent, too. I appreciate that enthisiasts of the original graphic compics will probably loathe and despise this interpretation. It's not art, but it kept me happy!
