1.0 out of 5 stars so bad it's...well, bad
The first Ghost Rider was a classic B movie. This was is so bad it's not even close to being in that "so bad, it's good." Forget figuring out why anything is the way it is like why is the Highlander (Christopher Lambert) a monk with scriptures tattooed in what looks like Latin all over his face? Or why Stringer Bell from "The Wire" is suddenly the Ghost Rider's best buddy...

1.0 out of 5 stars so bad it's...well, bad, Sept. 16 2012

The first Ghost Rider was a classic B movie. This was is so bad it's not even close to being in that "so bad, it's good." Forget figuring out why anything is the way it is like why is the Highlander (Christopher Lambert) a monk with scriptures tattooed in what looks like Latin all over his face? Or why Stringer Bell from "The Wire" is suddenly the Ghost Rider's best buddy or how he survived getting killed in the first ten minutes? Was it just me or when his motorcycle flew off that mountain curve, wasn't he a goner?

The most laughable thing is the movie starts out with "Eastern Europe" showing up on the screen like the movie exists in the vastness of the entire eastern half of Europe. I guess they were trying to snag that lucrative ex-Communist bloc market and not offend any one country for this mess. The worse thing about all this is how boring the movie was.

Throw in the lead actress is no Eva Mendes and looks more at home at a goth concert, and GR2 lost me.

The extras are, well, there are none on the DVD release of this. Maybe with the Blu-Ray edition you'll get an explanation of how the Ghost Rider ended up in "Eastern Europe" as the onscreen animated segment only showed me a motorcycle "driving" across the Atlantic Ocean.

Probably the worst movie that i've seen in the last year...Plot makes no sense and the whole movie looks like an annoying, loud rock music video..Nicholas Cage sleepwalks through the whole movie and seems to know that the film is a TURKEY...Cage just needed a paycheck I guess...Want to see a movie with nothing going for it? Watch this bomb...

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt' Work, Aug. 17 2012

I've never done a review but if Amazon is stupid enough to email me a request for a review of a product that doesn't work, never worked and they won't replace then so be it.

Don't buy this product from Amazon. The Bluray disk will not go past the opening movie previews and will never open the main menue or play the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Esprit, Jan. 29 2014
Achat Amazon vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
J'ai le plaisir de compléter ma série de Ghost Rider. Et il est dommage qu'il n'y en a pas d'autre avec cet acteur.
Le colis est arriver rapidement. Il était bien envelopper et je n'ai pas eut de mal à le développer. L'état du DVD est conforme a mes espérances et j'ai eut beaucoup de plaisir a le visionner avec mes amies. Merci

2.0 out of 5 stars Flat... just flat, Oct. 27 2012
By 
Charles Dimov "Vice President" (Toronto, Canada) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Entertaining movie - purely from the special effects perspective, and the interesting proposition of trying to save Satan's son, from Satan. Nicholas Cage's acting seemed very flat. He did the occasional insane piece well.

I rated the movie a two star, because I was disappointed that it really was not much of an engaging or exciting movie - but it was not a complete utter failure or disaster. The special effects just did away with characters - which seemed too conveniently easy. The ending was also too convenient - that the Ghost Rider's good past suddenly emerges for the conclusion. The Director could have built this up better - disappointed that he did not.

If you are bored... maybe it is an OK Tuesday mid-afternoon movie to catch ... if you have the day off with nothing else to do. Otherwise - you can miss this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Rider ups the stakes!, Sept. 22 2012
By 
Robert Badgley (St Thomas,Ontario,Canada) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
Ghost Rider:Spirit of Vengeance(released Feb/12) stars Nicholas Cage as the Ghost rider,Johnny Blaze,Johnny Whitworth as Ray Carrigan,Fergus Riordan as Danny,Ciarán Hinds as Roarke,Violante Placido as Nadya,Danny's mother,and Idris Elba as Moreau.This installment of the movie franchise(yes,you bet there will be sequels),is a film onto itself,that is you don't need to have seen the first to get this one.Also it has a far greater sense of humour and a more balls-to-the-walls dynamic than the previous venture,and I liked it.
The plot finds the Rider in eastern Europe.A black Frenchman by the name of Moreau is after protecting a boy named Danny and his mother Nadya.They are on the run from one Ray Carrigan,who works for none other than the devil himself,this incarnation going by the name of Roarke.The pair don't stop to accept Moreau's help as they're too busy fleeing from Ray,and just by the skin of their teeth.
Moreau seeks out and finds the Ghost Rider and asks him to help him to find and protect Danny,and in exchange he will rid Johnny Blaze of his inner demon.The bargain made,they set out to find and confront Ray and his boys,and get Danny back.At one point a confrontation of gigantic proportions takes place in a quarry.Ray has rendezvoused with an arms dealer who allows him the use of a bunker busting bazooka.The Ghost Rider appears and Ray goes to work,but nothing stops the Rider who ends up tearing the entire contingent of men there apart,using an immense digger that comes to life in flames.Ray is seemingly dead and the Rider has both mother and Danny,safe for the moment.
They arrive at a monastery where the monks hide the boy and his mother for their own safety and the Rider undergoes a cleansing ritual of sorts within the monastery's catacombs.Before he does we learn that it was an ancient angel that was taken down to hell and turned mad,that now inhabits Blaze's body.When the Rider comes out,the demon within is gone,as Moreau promised,but the monks are now bent on killing the boy,as he is the child of Satan and must be taken care of before the devil comes to inhabit his body.Before the monks can perform their duty,Ray re-appears,now risen from the dead by the devil and given enhanced powers.He kills each monk but Johnny and company are powerless to stop Ray from taking the boy to Roarke.
The scene switches to Turkey at an ancient site of ruins,where the devil will transfer himself into Danny.Johnny and Moreau storm the ceremony and the shooting begins.Moreau is killed in the ensuing struggle by Ray and Johnny is captured and about to be killed by Ray also.However Danny stops Johnny's death by seconds,walks up to Johnny and taking Johnny's head in his hands gives him back his Ghost Rider powers once more.Roarke and Ray,however,get away with Danny.
A high speed pursuit takes place in which Ray is killed and the vehicle with the devil and Danny is sent out of control and ends up upside down at the side of the road.The Rider whips out his chain and sends the devil back home,and then revives an apparently deceased Danny with the good spirit of justice from the original angel inside of him.The Rider himself now appears in blue flames,riding into the distance.Fade to black.
I love the sense of humour in this film and the much more intense dynamic that Johnny/the Rider exhibits;harkening back to the comics.We see Johnny's control,what he ever had of it,is now not as strong as it used to be,as the spirit within has grown much stronger since we last saw him.We also learn about the ancient spirit that inhabits his body,that IT was driven mad,which explains Johnny's ever perverse and growing behavioral change.Also someone has FINALLY explained and shown,what happens to such a character as the Rider,when on fire and in his full glory,when he has to go to the washroom!! He explains it to Danny,and I won't give away the answer if you haven't seen it,but it is to die for,so to speak.There are some plot weaknesses in the film,such as Moreau's back story and Nadya's disappearance and sudden reappearance from Eastern Europe to Turkey.I am wondering whether an extended version might help explain these two points better.
Technically speaking the film is in its w/s a/r of 2:40:1 and is clear and crisp.Extras include deleted scenes only.
All in all a step up,I think,from the original film as it pushes the whole kit and kaboodle up a notch,with some interesting developments in Blaze's character and alter ego.The story and its elements harken back a little more to its comic book origins,and along with the Rider's epic battles and off-kilter attitude it also has a nice sense of humour about itself.4-4 1/2 stars.On fire and recommended!!
