Nic Cage barfs... again!

Mark Steven Johnson directed 'Daredevil.' That should be enough to warn anyone just how awful this mess of a movie is. Cage proves yet again that for every great role he takes on - he'll take another nine that stink to high heaven. To say it's formulaic would be unfair on formulaic Hollywood popcorn movies. One for anyone who didn't get HELLBOY - and sure...

Nicolas Cage is actually really good in this

Didnt have to a high a hope for this movie as a lot of comic books turned into movies are well bluntly S***t but people say its not good or bad ect ect look these movies are not shakespeare plays or Laurence of arabia there popcorn movies a few hours of escapism . Nicolas cage does do some strange movies then he also does some call blockbusters like Con Air...

Waste of celluloid

In general a total waste of celluloid, although we did get one or two laughs from Nicholas Cage's very stilted acting style! Strictly for the 8-13 year old age bracket!

Placed alongside such primetime Sony/Marvel Comics movies as the "Spider-Man" franchise, "Ghost Rider" is strictly matinee material. Though the superhero's fans have long awaited his close-up, the Devil's bounty hunter -- complete with a burning skull for a head and a killer motorcycle in flames --materializes in a movie that never measures up to his infernal potential...

It's entertaining to watch ol' hothead do his thing with his fiery chain and his "penance stare," but for a comic book with a rebel spirit, the adaptation feels obediently conventional...

As a film on its own, Ghost Rider isn't amazing, but it is definitely a decent popcorn flick. As an entry into the superhero genre, Ghost Rider is only a couple notches above the "X-Men: The Last Stand"...

The Ghost Rider is one of the more aggressively Catholic superheros in the Marvel stable. Cut from the same vigilante cloth as The Punisher - leather, not spandex - he rides around on a flaming motorcycle dispensing rough justice to the scum of the streets. Though entertaining enough in comic form, he's basically silly on the big screen due to the unavoidable on-fire-ness of his head...
