Well, I was expecting something on the line of the first movie. Nope.
If that is what you want, don't go. Even with the big-name cast, there
isn't anything here to redeem it for lovers of a a good (or even
average)dramatic movie. However, if you want a great comedy.....
What this movie is, and what some reviewers don't seem to get, is a complete spoof. This is a deliberately over-the-top attempt at creating a classic B-movie. Or if you've ever watched Hispanic TV, with all the poor over-acting and outrageous situations...that's what this is. This is not geared to someone who wants a great movie, but to someone who simply wants to laugh at poor film-making.
It is an extremely violent and graphic movie, but you don't really notice or care, because of how funny the poor acting is. And how so many people with automatic weapons, can miss so many targets standing in the open only feet away....well, that's what this kind of movie is all about.
Personally, I'm sorry I wasted the money on a ticket. But when it comes out on DVD, and you want a mindless night of poor B-movies, this might fit the bill.
Having grown up with many of the comic book super heroes, I have been
delighted to see so many of them becoming movies now, and look forward
to each one. The whole Marvel series has been enjoyable for the most
part. Ghost Rider (both of them) have been total disappointments.
The first Ghost Rider was poor, so I figured this one could only go up. Wow, was I wrong! The acting and plot in this one was SO poor, I was ready to walk out within 10 minutes. I decided to be fair...maybe things would improve. Well, I'll never get that hour and a half of my life back again.
I've seen some pretty cheesy B movies before. They can even be fun But I expect the quality of these to be so much more. It wasn't, and there was nothing fun about it. This one will never reach the acclaim it could have....it will fittingly go down in flames as nothing more than a poorly done B movie.
I've seen better acting out of most middle school and high school productions! Even the special affects were substandard for a movie of this type.
Don't waste your time with this one. Don't even bother with buying a DVD when they come out. Your money is worth more than seeing this movie even once.
