Anyone who reads books and then watches a movie based on that literature will say it is not as good as the book. Screen plays are not books and movies have to appeal to a large audience to break even. They are supposed to make money and of course this franchise Does. This , a good movie visually and the 3- D is pretty good on my home screen works for me. The story is secondary to the action as it should be in this type of film. I enjoyed it as I did the first mostly because it is not the comic book which is in no way literature . The writers and illustrators never claimed they were. True to the character is fine by that characters fans but truth is Ghost rider has always had a limited fan base and I am sure there are those who see the movies , buy a comic and are disappointed . I think old fans of the comic see or imagine ourselves as lone wolves like the Rider and probably should not criticize . My rating is based on my opinion of how my taste run and this movie entertained me as it probably did for many that do not do reviews . One other thing I would like to say is , most of the shows and movies I have enjoyed the most were hated by critics and if you will check the most successful usually are. The only bad thing I can say about this set is it does not have a DVD copy.
Do you like the Carpenters listening, jelly bean popping, simple, silly Johnny Blaze? Did you really like GR 1? (This does not match the comic version of Ghost Rider). You will not like (probably) GR 2.
Do you like the hard, gritty, tortured Ghost Rider from the comics? Then GR 2 is for you!
I hated Johnny Blaze in the first movie because he did not match the comic at all. GR 2 is a reboot, to a more comic book like, Johnny Blaze, and I was excited to see the real Ghost Rider come out. Now, if only Marvel had the stones to make a R rated GR...maybe for 3? The Marvel Knights series is a mature comic line and it just can't be done right at PG-13. I do think, however, that the time has come, and the audience exsists, for the gritty R rated comic book movie. Here's hoping!
I do have to add that they should pick a new Ghost Rider for their re-boot. Nick Cage is eyeball rolling cliche and quite ridiculous. If it were any actor other than he who performed like he does in GR2 he would have been called an amateur. They found the perfect Hulk for the Avengers after 3 tries, maybe they can find the right Johnny Blaze.
For true fans of the character, they missed the mark again. It did have potential to be a good Rider movie though.
Now we have this one:
1. It was great that Nicholas Cage came back as Johnny Blaze!
2. The underfoot actors were not well known actors, but they were great with
3. I like how we see that more people are making bad choices by making
deals with the devil!
4. David Goyer, who worked on The Dark Knight Trilogy and the Blade trilogy
gave us a decent plot!
5. The visual effects were more convincing than the first movie's fx were!
6. The guy who played the devil was really creepy!
What I didn't like was:
1. The movie felt like it needed a thicker plot!
2. Some of the action felt mindless!
If the movie had a thicker plot and if the action wasn't mindless it would have been better!
My grade: B- or three stars!
