Ghost RiderThis is a kid’s movie. Cage is a terrible actor and he doesn’t even try anymore. While The Hulk movie was ruined by a terrible script and a director that just didn’t get what The Hulk is really about, Ghost Rider was ruined by terrible acting, and not even Eva Mendez was able to make me care about the storyline. The irony was that the two young actors that start off the movie were ten times better and could have made for a decent film. Other than that, the CGI was cool and Ghost Rider was a badass. Overall though it was a letdown, halfway between the terrible Fantastic Four film and the pretty well made Punisher film.

2.5 out 5 stars

    Anyone else see this movie? I am curious what people think. The reviews have been so mixed. Why is it so hard to make a decent comic book movie?

    I know what you mean – I stopped going to see comic book movies altogether (with the exception of films I knew would be good like Superman, Batman, and Spiderman) after the hugely disappointing “Hellboy.” No matter how great the material could be, they never seem to get it right. And frankly, the fact that Nicolas Cage is in it doesn’t do much for me. I think he’s talented but the choices he’s made lately have been really questionable. I was fishing around for reviews and found this video review which I thought summed it up well (don’t worry – no spoilers) http://www.spill.com/reviews/ghost-rider/ If I were you, I’d just wait for the DVD.
