I will admit I didn't know a whole lot about Ghost Rider. I was one of the comics I never got into. I also went into this movie wondering if Nicolas Cage could pull the role off. To my suprise he did a pretty good job. He lacks the ability to deliver a emotional line but beyond that he does a good job. The story was good, it had a good combination of action and drama. The special effects on Ghost Rider was good and Eva Mendes was hot. Overall I would recommend this movie to most action film viewers and for any comic book fan.
Man was I jazzed after seeing this movie. I really didn’t think Nicolas Cage could pull off the Rider, but he did! From start to finish I enjoyed the “comic” feel to the movie without going over the top about it. When the caretaker says “Morning, Bonehead.” You can’t help but laugh. My one beef is the Caretaker’s last ride. An unnecessary part of the movie I felt. Also Eva looks hotter ever time she comes on screen. Trust me, this is a movie worth checking out.
