One of the most visually interesting movies I've ever seen. (by RikerDonegal)
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is insane. One of the most visually interesting movies I've ever seen. Loved it. 10/10 What you need to know about this movie before you go and see it.1. The action never stops. It's a lot like Conan or Van Helsing in that sense, but - here - there is also a story being told and all the action fits into that story. Failing to allow for that is what makes movies like Conan or Van Helsing so disappointing.2. This movie is visually interesting. When the camera points at a wall, the wall is interesting. When the camera pans over to a field beside a road, <more>
there are cool things to look at in there. When the characters are standing around talking, they are doing so in a cool-looking place. Always. And then there are the special effects. GR looks awesome. And then there is the editing... the split screen choices... the animation... Everything pops up, advances the story, and - pretty much - isn't used again.3. The story is simple, tight, and never stops advancing. The narrative immediately establishes who the bad guy is, what the bad guy wants, and why the good guys must stop him. And that's it. If you can get past the first five minutes, and are happy to accept who A, B and C are and why they are doing what they are doing , then the rest is just the fun of watching them fight it out. And it is fun.4. It's cool. As a huge lifelong fan of Ghost Rider, I love the 1970s comic book, I come to this movie with certain expectations. Above all else: GR must be cool/badass/awesome/etc. And in this movie... he is. Sometimes the henchmen are standing around, with their jaws drooping, wondering 'What the **** is he at?' And that's what I was hoping to see.5. This is an action movie, first. And a superhero/supernatural movie, second. Remove the crazy stuff, and you've got a standard A-to-B action flick. Hero-with-a-past goes up against slick-baddie to save an innocent. Even with all this sexy icing on top, the movie has a keen sense of what it actually is. And is all the better for it.6. Nicholas Cage is fun. And it looks like he is having fun. Cage eats scenery and blows everyone except Idris Elba off the screen. There are a couple of scenes that are a hoot. And you just want to watch them over and over. Great fun. Plus: it's funny. Cheeky funny.Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is insane. One of the most visually interesting movies I've ever seen. Loved it. 10/10YetAnotherComicBookBlog.blogspot.com
It's Nicolas Cage with his head on fire. That should tell you everything. (by Timstuff)
This movie is straight-up over the top fun. If you've seen movies like Crank or Drive Angry, you should know what to expect when you look at this movie. It's so intentionally ridiculous that it ends up being bad ass. It's not supposed to be taken seriously-- it's supposed to be fun, and fun is exactly what you'll get when you watch it.I didn't like the original movie much-- the whole thing felt pretty artificial to me. The special effects looked too much like a video game, and the action felt the same way. It seemed to be stuck in the "superhero movie" mold, <more>
which is inappropriate since The Rider is not a superhero, and should not be in a superhero movie. This time around, he's appropriately placed in a straight-up action film with over-the-top violence. The performance Nicolas Cage delivers in this film, both as The Rider and as Johnny Blaze is a deliciously chaotic joy to watch unlike the sedated performance in the first film, and that's part of how this movie succeeds where its predecessor failed. "Spirit of Vengeance" truly lives up to the term "action packed," and has a good self-aware sense of humor about itself.and we get to see Nicolas Cage eat the scenery as a possessed man in a way that's both entertaining and oddly believable. The Rider himself Also, I have to mention Idris Elba, since he steals pretty much every scene he's in with his great performance as an alcoholic warrior monk. The Rider himself also has way more personality himself-- he's not just a metal-less terminator in chains this time, but a psychotic entity who gets his jollies by killing people. You will see him laugh, cackle and mug at the camera with a muppet-like grin while he pisses fire. The Rider feels like a real character this time, and in addition to being a bad ass he's actually funny!I also need to note that the special effects are far more realistic this time, which is appropriate since this movie feels like a grindhouse-style midnight movie rather than an over-polished Hollywood blockbuster. I'm surprised that a movie with a budget of only 70 million can have fire effects that are this good, since even big-budget films often struggle with it. Hats off to the animators!Overall, I'd be hesitant to even call this a sequel to the first one if it weren't for the fact that it stars Nicolas Cage and picks up roughly 8 years where the original left off. You don't need to see the original to get into it, and it's overall a very different kind of movie. It's all the better for it, too! If you enjoy over-the-top movies like Drive Angy, Kick Ass and Crank, you will eat this film up. If you are expecting something serious-- I hate to break it to you, but you probably suck at evaluating movie trailers. If it looks like something you'd like, then give it a try and I'm pretty certain that you won't be disappointed.
This is what Ghost Rider is.....for the most part (by punisher6191)
This one kicks the first movie straight in the teeth! It is a much better, more exciting and more accurate Ghost Rider film. I LOVED this film, and I would recommend it to anyone, BUT you must know a few things before you go into it. I am a HUGE Ghost Rider fan, he is my favorite comic book character and any fan should like this film, if they don't, then they obviously haven't read the newer comics because they are very close to this style. But before you see this film, understand two things:Ghost Rider is a GRINDHOUSE CHARACTER. He always has been. The comics, especially the newer <more>
ones are very schlocky and pulpy. I mean, this is a comic in which the characters include, but are not limited to, hill billy cannibals, a man with an eye ball for his entire head, insane cops, hot virgin nuns toting huge machine guns, and a demon that uses his penis as a tentacled weapon this same demon breaks a man's back by shoving the guy's head up his ass and then refers to him as "Buttview" the rest of the comic . This is midnight movie material. And you must understand this first.Second is the directors. These are the guys who did Crank, Crank 2: High Voltage, and Gamer. They have a very chaotic, energetic, and unique style of filming. They shot on cables and roller blades for some shots. And the editing is even more insane.This understood, you will thoroughly enjoy this film. It has Ghost Rider being awesome, demonic, and kicking ass. Nicolas Cage is gleefully over the top and his portrayal of Johnny Blaze is MUCH better than in the first film. He is sarcastic, dark, and crazy, which is good for this character. I mean, his head catches fire, he's not exactly going to be the most stable human being. Next is Idris Elba, who is probably the best part of the film. You really can tell he had a blast as this character and he adds charisma to the film and is truly a joy when he's on screen. Johnny Whitworth does a very good job as Blackout, who is VERY accurate to the comic's character. I was afraid because the directors said they didn't base him on the comic's version. But whether that was a lie, or by complete accident, they got him nearly dead on. They even gave him more powers which make him more of a force to be reckoned with. His Blackout is very Mic Jager/Rock and Roll influenced, which is fine because in the newer comics, Blackout was very "punk rock" in his attitude.There are some missteps and the film isn't perfect. The story isn't that in depth, the dialogue is less than stellar and it is a bit short. But when it comes to doing the character justice, this is the best adaptation out there.All in all, if you have read this review and you think this is something you might be interested in, GO SEE IT! It is much better than the first one, and much more exciting. Ghost Rider is nuts and vicious which is what his character is suppose to be. It has a very pulpy feel and that totally works for this character. The action is intense with the camera angles putting you right there in the middle of it. I really hope these guys come back and do a third and make it bigger and better. Go see this film for a good old fashioned pulp good time. And hell, who wouldn't wanna see Ghost Rider making a hell fire mining bagger and wrecking a dozen guys with it?
I enjoyed The Ghost Rider film. Watching my 9 year old and his 9 year old cousin enjoy was worth the money spent. The three of us went to the matinée and caught it. To my surprise I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Idris and Nick make a good team on screen. Pretty cool chemistry working there. Hope to see those two in another film together one day. I will be looking forward to this on Blu Ray when it comes out. BTW-Although there was no one in the movie as hot as Eva Mendes was in the first one I enjoyed the second one moreso.Many people were thinking Nicolas Cage was too old to play <more>
Johnny Storm, but me being a Nicolas Cage fan I didn't see a problem with it. He did a very good job play The Rider.Kudos!
Nic Cage - doing what he does best! (by future-mrs-toews)
I wasn't actually a huge fan of the first Ghost Rider, but I went into the sequel with high hopes, and I wasn't let down.Let's face it... this movie is a Nic Cage movie. If you don't understand what that means, then this movie isn't for you. It also might be good to point out that I love Nic Cage and enjoy the semi-constant character he plays in all movies The story is a bit choppy, but overall it's a highly entertaining, exciting, enjoyable movie to see especially in 3D ! Lots of action, great graphics in the fight scenes and some fairly exciting high-paced chase <more>
scenes. I also think people over look just how well Cage played the role of Blaze in this film - when he starts to go crazy, he goes frigging crazy!If you're looking for an Oscar-worthy movie, this is not your cup of tea, but if you're looking for a way to be highly entertained for an hour and a half, you need to see this movie.

If Your Looking For A Fun Time At The Movies Where You Can Just Sit Back Eat Your Popcorn Laugh & Watch A Fun Movie With Some Great 3D Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance Is The Movie For You.
I saw a sneak preview of this movie w/ somewhat 'curious' expectations. This is mainly because of the style of 'Crank' directors Neveldine/Taylor. Being a fan of the Ghost Rider comic book, I was a bit disappointed in the original film as I found it a bit flat. However I gave it a bit of a pass because I knew that 'Daredevil' director Mark Steven Johnson's style was simply not suited for this type of subject matter. So whenever I watch that installment I can't help but feel a bit torn because although I didn't care for GR1 overall, I have to admit that <more>
there were aspects of it that I can appreciate.But after watching GR: Spirit of Vengeance I was very refreshed and impressed. They gave it more of a 'cult film' feel which I thought was PERFECT for this project. Neveldine/Taylor seem to never be scared to take risks w/ going outside the box of contemporary filmmaking and GR:SOV is a true testament of that. Since I can relate this feeling w/ the one I got when I first saw Lexi Alexander's "Punisher: War Zone" I strongly anticipate that this film is gonna take a beating from the masses. But I don't care because IMHO, the mainstream nowadays apparently have no idea of original thought and much of their opinions are spoon-fed to them by corporate media.Also what helped make this work is the performance of all the actors, ESPECIALLY NIC CAGE! I admit I had my doubts about him reprising the Johnny Blaze character but it's quite evident he was in tune w/ the directors' vision. SOV like PWZ is clearly a 'love-it-or-hate-it' movie which works for me because since movies like this don't rack up at the box office and tend to be viewed as commercial flops, they come out on home releases pretty quick at very reasonable prices w/ extras to boot . IMO this film will make most of its money on DVD/blue-ray sales.Not wanting to spoil it for anybody, all I can say is if you go see GR:SOV, "try" to have an open mind. Otherwise you might just be setting yourself up to be disappointed w/ no fault being that of the movie. The only reason I didn't give this a higher rating is because I thought it was a bit short 1:36 and I admit I'm a bit torn because perhaps it may have been best not to draw it out.Chalk up another 'underground hit' for Marvel Knights!!!
Proper Ghost rider! Nicolas Cage, actually played the part well. Bit loopy when needed. pseudo daddy for the rest of the time, sort of worked! I really like the fact that this film has tried to be more like the Graphic Novel & less like the original film. Moral, immoral & fun. The CGI style is perfect for a boy/angel/demon with a flaming skull riding on a motorcycle & killing folk in an admittedly, sometimes pointlessly staring at people for a really long time, sort of way . I have honestly never seen flames & the whole burning monsters & things done so well!Please, just <more>
switch off Hollywood review mode, Ignore the first films existence & enjoy!
Far Better Than the First (by breakdownthatfilm-blogspot-com)
Back in 2007, audiences were able to see first hand what the Marvel Comic book anti-hero, Ghost Rider, would look like on screen. Unfortunately too few people were pleased with the results. Nicolas Cage who played Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider seemed uncomfortable with his character and didn't quite know how to bring out the true feeling of the movie. Adding to this were the ridiculous villains who barely did anything throughout the film's running time except for bad mouth other characters. Overall, the Ghost Rider of 2007, which was directed Mark Steven Johnson, was outlandishly cartoony <more>
and needed improvement on the script.Fast forward to 2012, almost EXACTLY 5 years just a day apart by release , the next story of Ghost Rider as fans would say - "Rides again". Call it a sequel or a remake, one could look at it both ways. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance GR2 was directed by the Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine team and I give them a lot of credit for taking on this franchise. It's not easy to impress comic book fans, especially when the first one was more or less a flop. However, this Ghost Rider film, by far, surpasses its predecessor by a significant amount. So what's better in this film - almost everything! Let's start with what I talked about earlier. In the first Ghost Rider, we saw a Nicolas Cage who really did look like he was comfortable in the shoes of Johnny Blaze. It was almost like after his father's death, he fell into a depression that left him absolutely non- emotional. It is much clearer now that the role of Johnny Blaze was made to be so Cage knew what how he had to act out his character. He clearly states several times, that he tries his best to hold back the evil inside him and it's not easy to do. And one must understand, because he has this force inside of him, something that powerful could make him go insane. Nicolas will go insane so don't be surprised when he does. This is the Johnny Blaze that should have been written into the first movie.What's even better is that Cage is actually funnier in this film as Blaze. There aren't any awkward moments like there were in the first film. The script definitely received an improvement over the past five years. There isn't a love interest in this story, which is good because that's probably what was holding the character of Blaze back from 2007. This movie is solely about Blaze trying to take control of the curse he was given. Along with Cage are all different actors to fill the voids of new characters. Violante Placido plays Nadya, a mother who conceived a son Fergus Riordan , whom now the devil Ciaran Hinds wants to claim and it's up to Blaze and a friend named Moreau Idris Elba to take on the problem. Moreau is another character who puts some comedy into this action/adventure, horror flick.As for action goes, GR2 has plenty, if not more than the first. And this time, Ghost Rider has some considerable opponents. In 2007, Ghost Rider fought off four demons, Blackheart and his three minions. I couldn't even count the amount of bad guys Blaze fought off...sorry wrong word; killed. Another thing I enjoyed watching. In the first movie, Ghost Rider was a hokey character who never really got to use his true hellish powers. Ghost Rider shows no mercy in GR2. Villains will burn, explode and disintegrate. Ghost Rider's penance stare is no longer the same either. My only complaint is that during certain scenes, there would be different camera shots inserted. Those different camera shots made me feel like something else was happening when really what was happening, WAS happening and not something else. The music is great too. David Sardy who produced the movie's score, has good sense of what this film should sound like and he did just that. Plenty of hard rock guitar with a main theme to boot!Lastly, are the special effects. The portrayal of Ghost Rider is much more accurate. Ghost Rider as a whole is totally charred. Even his jacket bubbles! Keep your eyes open for that because you can really see it, which is absolutely surreal. Making Ghost Rider look even more spectacular is the fire that he is engulfed in. It is no longer a clean flame that cloaked Ghost Rider in 2007. No. It is a torch that creates so much sooty smoke, that it's almost suffocating just to watch it on screen. This is what makes Ghost Rider, Ghost Rider. Something so grungy, that it looks like it came from hell. One other effect I like was one of the devil's helpers who had the power to decay anything he touched; except Twinkies! Ha!For the first time taking on this Marvel character, directors Neveldine and Taylor nailed Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. With a tuned-up script, better character dialog, accurate special effects, and an exciting score, this film plays better than the original.
