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.

A by-the-numbers hammy superhero caper that reaches new levels of blandness.

Ghost Rider is a joke -- a monumentally foolish comic book movie with lots of unintentional laughs, mixed in with the intentional ones.

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

Ghost Rider is very much a movie for 9 year olds that feels like it was made by a 9 year old. Even 14 or 15 year olds will feel too old for what passes as cool or dark in this edge-of-camp movie.

Its clear this director has sold HIS soul to a bunch of special effects wizards who certainly supply the hardware but drown out the human element.

If Ghost Rider wanted to fetch something of value, he should have been out there looking for a better script.

The worst adaptation of a Marvel Comics hero yet.

For years scientists have theorized that one day Nicolas Cage would overact so badly that his head would burst into flames. Now, with Ghost Rider, the phenomenon has finally come to pass.

What begins as a standard-yet-watchable superhero adventure slowly congeals into something approaching the caliber of Catwoman. Not as bad, but kinda knocking on the doorstep.

If Nicolas Cage weren't a goofball with a hunky physique and droll wit, this Marvel-comic-to-big-screen adaptation would have no torque at all.

Ghost Rider works even less as a movie than it did as a comic book ... once you get past the cool concept and visuals of the character, there really isn't very much else there.

Seeing Ghost Rider is like going to Saturday matinee serials at the Rialto eons ago. It's a fanciful, puerile experience -- a fun day out for 9-year olds. Ghost Rider is a ridiculous melange of cheesy effects, talentless extras, corny plot and insi

What should be scuzzy, goofy fun becomes morose, off-key dreck in the hands of writer/director Mark Steven Johnson.

Marvel's Ghost Rider has always been a thoroughly transparent, inorganic creation.

It's not a complete wash, a la Catwoman, but it ain't far off.

Whoever the inept Mark Steven Johnson had to sell his soul to in order to get put in charge of two big comic book adaptations, I hope it was worth it.

Mainly the movie's about riding a bike at the speed of sound while your head is burning. They can do anything these days, which isn't quite the same as saying they should do anything these days.
