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

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.

The worst adaptation of a Marvel Comics hero yet.

Shamelessly cribs from the "Spawn" film.

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.

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

Easily joins the ranks of ... throw-away superhero movies made for a quick buck.

Ghost Rider fails for the same reason every bad movie does: poor storytelling and bad acting.
April 28, 2007
An abysmal excuse of a film featuring Nicolas Cage's worst performance yet and only marginally improving on the Spawn formula.
