Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012)

"This thing... There's no conscience, just hunger...
The Rider's gonna come out... and when he does, 
he'll destroy whoever's got it coming..."



Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) reappears as The Rider once again in order to prevent the devil from taking a human form..


The second installment of the Ghost Rider movie is brought to u by Mark Neveldine and Bryan Tyler, the directors of Crank... I notice that this movie is quite similar to Crank where the story was not carefully developed, instead the focus is more on style and action... 


Special Effects

I love the special effects in this movie especially when The Rider comes out... For me, the highlight of this movie would be the time when The Rider rides a monster drilling machine at the quarry as he battles an army of illegal weapon dealers... 





Bad Bad Acting, Story and Script


None of the cast members really stand out... Nicolas Cage used his usual kind of acting style and it sucks big... Moreau who is supposedly carefree and happy-go-lucky in character is obviously not meant for Idris Elba... In my opinion, Elba is suitable to play serious characters like the one that he took in Thor... Danny, the son of Satan, played by Fergus Riordan portrayed zero expression... Violante Placido took the character Nadya, Danny's mother, didn't really stand out... Though I was happy every time she's on screen coz she's really cute...

The horrible script makes the movie almost unbearable to watch... I definitely expected more from David S. Goyer - the writer of The Dark Knight... 

The best moments are only when The Rider appears to save the day... Simply because The Rider only utter a few cool punch phrases like, "ROADKILL..."... Other scenes are a pain to go through because of the script and bad acting...



As a conclusion, like what have been stated before, this movie is focused on style and style only... The special effects are the best thing in this movie while the acting and story are trash...
