Ghost Rider (2007)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Ghost Rider is a sour mix of morose, glum histrionics amidst jokey puns and hammy dialogue.

Best lines? "Is this thing ever gonna end?" "Not even close." "I shore wish this thang coulda turned out different."

Ignore the cheesy dialogue, the cardboard cut-out villains and the atrociously OTT acting and just enjoy a good old-fashioned tale of heroes and villains the way the comic-books used to tell 'em.

It all seems so wearyingly old fashioned: teenage delinquents on motorbikes, creaky incarnations of Satan, a rock'n'roll take on dangerous cool.

Cage needs to produce something special next to make up for crimes against cinema.

By any real-world standard, this is a stupid piece of junk. But it's very good at being a stupid piece of junk.

Audience Reviews for Ghost Rider

Not the worst comic adaption ever but not bad. Decent action film nothing more.

Someone here thinks there's enough parallels between Elvis' latter day performances as a unitard wearing, kung fu signifying, daredevil cartoon (I recall only utter embarrassment) and a Marvel superhero damned for eternity, to go ahead and make a movie out of it. It actually almost works too. Nick Cage throws in every Presley nuance he can think of except: "thank yah verry verry much!"
