Alright when I first saw that this movie was coming out, and that Nicholas Cage was going to be in the title role, I thought great here's a movie that will be awesome, I have always been a huge Ghost Rider comic book fan, and I have never seen a movie with Nicholas Cage in it that I did not like. So I immediately set up plans to see it in theaters. When I got there and watched the movie I thought, okay this wasn't so great at the Comic level, BUT Nicholas Cage did great, probably not the best choice but it doesn't mean he didn't do Good. I liked how they got the graphics and CGI's when he turned into The Rider, or when Blackheart went all haywire at the end with the collective soul. I really liked how they got Sam Elliot, one of my favorite actors to play the caretaker, who secretly is the previous Ghost Rider himself, as he helps Johnny Blaze out on his quest to stop Blackheart. I thought that Blackheart's character was played alright by Wes Bentley, could have been a little more agressive if you ask me, but he did good. In my opinion there could have been a lot more action, but what they did with the action that they came up with was excellent, when Ghost Rider rides up the wall, or when he's fighting the Demons, after pretty much just becoming Ghost Rider. I like Eva Mendes, but I do not think that she was a perfect fit for this role as Roxanne Simpson, though she did alright with her acting. I really like Peter Fonda, but as mephistopheles I did not, he did great with his acting I think don't get me wrong, but they should have gone with a no namer on that one as well. My favorite thing about this movie was that it was dark and dreary most of the time, one of my favorite things in a movie. I really didn't mind that it didn't follow the comics completely, I was a little ticked that it didn't follow them, but I was just glad to see Ghost Rider on the big screen.

    This summer when I finally get out of f*cking school, I'm going to go through and redo all my skimpy ones. Hopefully now that I have the magic touch so to speak, I can fix them.

    Lol guts it's alright we know we stand on different pedestals in this particular movie. My first reviews were sh*t, I'm working on it. It's all part of the process, as for Marcusx and taking his crap, well I've found that it's rather hit and miss with him, you say something right or you say something wrong, I'm sure he means well, course, I've been wrong before XD.

    youre too naive guts. i allow you to think what you want so i can use it against you later. as if you were apart of his and mines conversation. i was not even saying vamp hasnt got the ability to write a good review. just the ones i have read were skimpy and well, sh*t. he agrees we moved on and youre still a c*ck sucker. either way, i said what i wanted to say here. vamp gets it you dont. seems to be a regular thing with you

    Jesus, I can't believe you take that Vamp. He called your reviews sh*t...ok I'm sorry Marcus, but who the f*ck are you to judge other peoples reviews? Everyone has opinions and no one wants your god damned input you f*cking loser. I didn't know you were the best god damned critic there ever was, man, what a drone. My drone that is. Hahaha

    Yea I know it was like one of my first I haven't gone back through it yet.

    and maybe I wouldnt be so disapproving of your opinions if you would actually share them and let me in on where you are coming from.. have you even read your review above?? It tells me nothing about the movie nor what you really thought of it.. you didn't break it down you basically just said "hey guys, I like it" and with everyone patting you on the back and congratulating you on a good review that was 3 sentences long, it makes no sense. So if you were offended by my comment that wasnt directed towards you, then good, because then it served its purpose.

    who says that was directed at vamp?

    i agree on u wit dat comment, that just becuz a review doesnt meet their standards they gotta go ape sh*t on you.

    Didn't like this at all honestly the worst superhero movie to date. it looked decent visually but the writing and acting was brutal again my opinion.

  22. Vamp

  23. The Boondock Saint

    not to go all fukin phsycho on u like marcus and phat, but i just wanna say that i personally didnt like this movie.and ur comment: "look i respect your option of hating..........." is pretty fukin awsum and i gotta totally agree with u

    7 years agoby @combatmadness360Flag

  24. Marcusx

    thats more towards guts. dont worry about it, this still deserves practically no stars. i will go read the other reviews and comment so you can see what i think

    7 years agoby @marcusxFlag

  25. Vamp

    LOL, I guess I can live with that. I really don't want any tiff with anyone, although I really don't appreciate Phatlightning's little comment there, but What can you do? One more was my Iron Man review sh*t? Was my Sweeney Todd review sh*t?

  27. Vamp

    Look I respect your option of hating my opinion. I just want to say that I'm sorry. I'm sorry that you feel you have to rag on everyone who's opinion doesn't match what yours is.I have no retaliation in mind nor would I try and come up with one. I will rate a movie however the f*ck I want to. So as far as I'm concerned, I'm finished.

    that was hands down the best thing i have ever read. couldnt have said it better. cant wait to read their feble attempt at returning an even half witted resonse. im gonna grab a kleenex in preparation to wipe the tears that come rolling down my face as i read what they say in defense. god this movie sucks. i cant believe anyone could even consider saying the opposite. the only thing positive from this film is the credits at the end. nuff said

    oh good god, the closet crew is all coming out to support a terrible film.. must be a sickness or something. This movie is one after the heart of the 23 year old boy lover, so I can see where all of you come together to rouse your approval and pat each other on the back.. holding meetings in the sub nurtured basement of a church playing "genie in a bottle" while grinding up on adolescents, telling the parents your a youth group with inadequate funding so they support your trips to Chuckie Cheese and Water Country USA. continue your undying loyalty to the garbage that is this film, and may your carcus someday rot in the bed of a neonazi's two tone f-150.

    ok i will step down if you can tell me one thing this movie did well.
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    not a damn thing. exactly.
    the acting was terrible
    there were no fight scenes
    and the visuals were pathetic. you could tell the streets adn buildings were practically all cardboard. as if guts knows what hes talking about. he should just come out of the closet already and put his emotions to the side
