Now that you've seen it, what did you think? He's back in theaters again, the flaming-skull demon from hell, Ghost Rider, otherwise known as Johnny Blaze, played once again by Nicholas Cage in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, a new take on the Marvel comic book character from Crank directors Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor. So how is this one? Better than the first movie from 2007, just as bad, or even worse? Can the Crank guys and their crazy camerawork redeem this badass Marvel Knight? How is the 3D? Once you've seen it, post a comment below with your thoughts on Neveldine/Taylor's new 3D Ghost Rider.
"What if you have to pee when you're on fire?" To fuel the flames big time on this one, I finally saw Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and wasn't that impressed with it. There wasn't enough awesome flaming Ghost Rider action, the story in-between was way too boring and just plain stupid. While I enjoyed some of it, overall it was just wacky at times and I couldn't wait to get to the next insane Nic Cage moment. There were multiple times I laughed out loud at the absurdity of Cage in full-on craziness. That combined with some kick ass flaming head / giant-machine moments, I at least found it entertaining for a good 90-or-whatever-the-hell minutes it was. It's barely B-movie fun, if even that; I think I'd rather go back and watch Crank.
