Elba has his usual charisma and Hinds has a powerful presence of lurking menace, but a film that explores what happens when the Ghost Rider has to urinate while enflamed, and does so with a wink and a smile, is not to be taken seriously
What's striking is that Cage appears so darned content that this is the weird path his career has taken. In that regard Cage isn't much different from Ghost Rider, impervious to bombs and giddily going down in flames.
Ghost Rider is a multi-million dollar franchise and consequently the two directors have been obliged to tone down their act; a vintage example of the catch-all mentality that makes many of these movies mechanical, joyless affairs.
