Every time Ghost Rider would go in to stare into a person's soul, it looked like he was about to kiss them. Now THAT would've improved this film.
Apparently this has its defenders, but I'm sorry, this is worse than the first one. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that where he was just kinda bland in the original, Nicolas Cage is tapping that sweet Cage-juice here and going utterly wacky. I also like that this film doesn't take itself as seriously as the first one, because, well, it's about a guy with a flaming head on a motorbike, it's not exactly Shakespeare. Yet the direction, editing and writing are all really quite awful, and apart from the Ghost Rider effects themselves, this film looks so CHEAP. This had a $75 million budget; where did it go, the catering?
This character has potential, but these films should be sent straight to Hell.
