Weird Sequel to say the least.
25 December 2013 | by destroyerwodSee all my reviews

When the movie was first announced, i was thinking do Ghost Rider really need a sequel? Probably not, but oh well why not? Took me a while to finally see it and yesterday, i rented it.

Now i will say that i don't read the comic, and although the first movie was not stellar, it was a good cheesy fun for me. I really like Nic Cage too as an actor. But the first 2 things i noticed with this movie... they just threw you out in the story like BAM... OK i can live with that, even tough some more background especially on the other characters would had been appreciated. But the second thing... the camera. Its really rare i complain on camera work and the direction, but in this movie i tough it was awful... shaky cams, bad angles, weird specials effects for some scenes.

This is more or less what made me think the movie was weird, and although a couple nice scenes where you can see the budget, i was thinking it was a direct to DVD B movie. I didn't watch the first one for a while, i think i will do soon because there some parts of the story that i didn't really get, like they didn't match with the first movie.

As for the Rider suit, it was way better in the first movie, sharper, more style, i know what they tried to accomplish with this one, but it came out as not as good as visual look. Also, i didn't got why he had to look at the guys for like 2 minutes before burning them up, it was not that long in the first movie? Anyway Ghost Rider 2 end up being a disappointing sequel to a first movie that was not a masterpiece, but a good cheese fest that i really liked. This one looks cheap, plain an simple, badly film, story is "you saw it a million time". I actually liked the Carrigan character tough, i think he was the best part of the movie.
