God, this movie was terrible. It may not be the worst comic book film ever made, but it's in the Top 3.
RorMachine - 8/23/2012, 12:53 PM
Umm..ok, it was terrible, but maybe it was because I saw it ages after it came out, but I still kinda enjoyed it!
SageMode - 8/23/2012, 12:55 PM
Nice sarcasm in your first sentence.
AlexDeLarge87 - 8/23/2012, 12:55 PM
Shit movie! Awesome effects!
nonserviam - 8/23/2012, 12:55 PM
This whole movie should have been 1 big deleted scene.
SageMode - 8/23/2012, 12:59 PM
The sad thing about it is that the GHOST RIDER mythos have the potential to be an awesomely badass adaptation on screen, but Sony they just had their hands up their asses for both movies. Hopefully GR will get some Hollywood justice in the future.
CaptainObvious - 8/23/2012, 1:07 PM
This movie was so unengaging, that I was paying more attention to the person writing text messages below than the actual film. You have to suck pretty hard for that to happen.
jessepostal - 8/23/2012, 1:08 PM
i liked the movie, i thought it was fun,a b movie but still fun. The rider looked great,it was different and a lot better than the first one. It wasn't suppose to be a big movie like most cbms now. I guess a lot of you don't like b movies in general.
dezdigi - 8/23/2012, 1:14 PM
Still haven't seen it. It's going to have to be one cold snowy day and a house full of booze before I decide to watch this!
TheLokey1 - 8/23/2012, 1:15 PM
Cbm's that are worse than this movie:

Fantastic 4
Fantastic 4: rise of the silver surfer
Superman 3
Superman 4
Original ghost rider
Green lantern
Wolverine origins

And those are just the ones off the top of my head, this movie could have been a lot better, however, its as large a pile as a lot of people around here make it out to be

DC4everLantern - 8/23/2012, 1:15 PM
You see. And you all say GREEN LANTERN sucks. Now look at this shit movie. Green Lantern was great!!!
HavocPrime - 8/23/2012, 1:17 PM
Why by the blue ray when all you have to do is watch the trailer, I've heard of showing too much, but that took the cake, and eat it too.

I actually don't hate this movie like a lot of people here do. I found it to be entertaining at times. My biggest gripe was Nic Cage, who I also don't loathe like other people. But his performance in this movie was oddly bland at times with splashes of bizarre over-the-top moments, even for Cage. But more unsettling was seeing a withered and aged Cage in this role, it was like watching my father in a Batman costume. Cage is way past his expiration date for a superhero role.
nailbiter111 - 8/23/2012, 1:20 PM
DC4everLantern - Sorry but this was better than GL. That movie is all sorts of god awful.
third3ye - 8/23/2012, 1:20 PM
The whole movie should've been a deleted scene.
CaptainObvious - 8/23/2012, 1:23 PM
@DC4everLantern- Even if this movie didn't exist, Green Lantern would still suck. This is coming from somebody who was looking forward to it.

"Unfortunately, they forgot to delete the other 95 minutes..."

Bwah hahahah haha hahahaha....



nailbiter111 - 8/23/2012, 1:28 PM
btw how great is the vfx video? i was stunned at how many things were added or enhanced digitally. the special effects department should be proud of their work, much of that was seamless.
MrChuff - 8/23/2012, 1:32 PM
I did actually think the flame/skull/smoke-trail effects were done really well.

The movie as a whole though was a very poorly rolled ball of poo.
Pendaghast - 8/23/2012, 1:40 PM
this was now way better than, green lantern, Daredevil, xmen origins wolverine, and the punisher! no way, GRSoV was utter shat! only thing i liked was the credits

RorMachine - 8/23/2012, 1:43 PM
Don't get me wrong, I didn't LIKE it, it just didn't take itself seriously enough for me to hate it. Had I paid to see it I may have though. As it stands, it's just another crappy CBM..with some humor to stop it being completely detestable. Plus, the Rider himself was cool:)

I don't think it was in any way shape or form better than Daredevil, Superman 3, Green lantern, Wolverine origins or Punisher.

Pendaghast - 8/23/2012, 1:47 PM
i even think the first one was better

the difference with GL and GR:SOV is that I went into GL with HIGH expectations, love the director (at the time) and was expecting a live-action version of First Flight. What I got was utter shit.

While GR:SOV had the crank directors attached, which was a huge minus right off the bat since i hate those movies. Also, before I saw it word of mouth had reached me that it was awful, so when I finally saw it I was shocked to see some entertaining bits here and there.

At the end of the day I still think GR2 is better than GL. Perhaps i'm not being fair, because I see how great, and have always seen how great a GL movies should be, and to finally have one and it's donkey poop is rather upsetting.

Either way, if you're choosing between Superman 3, Daredevil, GR 1 or 2, Gl, Wolverine: Origins, or any Punisher film, I would choose.... none, go watch a good movie like THE LOOKOUT instead.

This movie gave me AIDS. And cancer. And polio.
CrimsonArk - 8/23/2012, 2:03 PM
This movie was so bad it gave me back my virginity.
Pendaghast - 8/23/2012, 2:04 PM
Daredevil and the punisher is right near the top on my list, drastically underrated movies in my opionion! Daredevil especially!
StingyFox - 8/23/2012, 2:16 PM
Movie was beyond terrible but you have to admit watching Nic Cage having fake orgasms and spas attacks was pretty damn funny.

Batclooney - 8/23/2012, 2:27 PM
Worst movie of the year so far. I don't just mean comic book movies either. Cage says he's such a huge fan of the character then plays him like a clown. I just can't get the scene where he punches his chest nd then begins to sway back and forth for a while out of my head. What the f*ck was that?
Friggin' douche.
StarSpangledBruce - 8/23/2012, 2:34 PM
It was better than the first one IMO.
mattattack - 8/23/2012, 2:38 PM
I agree with @Pendaghast,

The directors cut of Daredevil is solid (minus the whole Elektra storyline and shitty soundtrack) and Thomas Jane's Punisher is criminally underrated.

This movie was pretty lame but it was still more fun than the original Ghost Rider. Nicolas Cage is a fantastic actor but he needs solid directors who can direct him and make sure he doesn't overact at times.
SunSp0t - 8/23/2012, 2:40 PM
@Jessepostal: No you tard! Its not that we dont like B movies, its that WE DONT LIKE SHIT MOVIES in general like you do! Idiot!!!
blvdnoise - 8/23/2012, 2:48 PM
Yeah, this movie sucked.
blvdnoise - 8/23/2012, 2:49 PM
poop23 - 8/23/2012, 2:59 PM
Not gonna lie, the effects and action was pretty cool. If they fixed the plot, didn't use cage, and fix some other issues, then they'd have a fairly good movie
CoolantTech - 8/23/2012, 3:54 PM
Never seen it, I just knew to stay away from it based on how crappy the first one was, and guys I agree on how crappy all those other films are except DareDevil which was pretty good to me.
agentofchaos - 8/23/2012, 4:36 PM
I could'nt even finish watching this movie on dvd...pretty bad..
