The scene during the final car chase when Carrigan is touching the wind shield on Nadya's car to make it decay shouldn't work as glass does not decay, with the exception of certain really old types of glass which deteriorate due to inherent chemical instability. See more »

Roarke: [answering phone] Carrigan!
Ray Carrigan: I got your package but the cost of doing business with me just went up.
Roarke: I don't understand.
Ray Carrigan: What's not to understand? I want more. You understand that?
Roarke: We had an agreement, Carrigan. Changing the defined terms of an agreement is something we just don't do.
Ray Carrigan: You told me to get a kid. Not a problem. I've done that with people before. And I have a history with his bitch of a mom, so there's no better guy for the job. But what you didn't tell me, is that I'd be walking ...

Visually Entertaining!
4 August 2013 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

I don't know what to make of Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance. I know it's laughably bad, but I couldn't help being entertained. The first film was actually a decent, enjoyable film, but the sequel is more campy and has a different tone. The story is very dumb, compared to the first film. But the visuals are excellent. I loved the look of the Ghost Rider and his charred skull.

Neveldine and Taylor's film brings about the return of the Ghost Rider. Johnny Blaze has been hiding out in the remote parts of Europe, but he returns when the Church recruits his help to help protect a boy, whom has the Devil after him so he can use the boy's body.

Nic Cage delivers another over-the-top performance as Johnny Blaze and despite some amusing moments, it did get old and stale after awhile. Idris Elba does a good job as the Church guy and Ciarin Hinds is decent as the Devil.

Overall, this is a over-the-top superhero film that doesn't deserve widespread hate, but still is pretty bad. But what I mean by bad is the film is "good" bad. I found it somewhat entertaining and a nice way to spend an hour and a half. The story/script is just plain silly, but the visuals are very good. I rate this film 7/10.
