Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (3D): Movie Review

Seal the Deal!

[Rating: 2]
 
Director: Mark Neveldine, Brian Taylor
 
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Idris Elba, Christopher Lambert, Violante Placido, Johnny Whitworth, Fergus Riordan, Ciaran Hinds
 
Synopsis: Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil`s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy from the devil. At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.
 
Review: Superhero stories always speak about how a scorned man takes on the evil to save the world, seldom does it speak about his inner devils that seem magnified as time goes by. Like in the case of the Marvel superhero, Ghost Rider, who has a ‘curse’ of the devil that goes haywire and the demonic qualities become a virtue for the world since they only uproot when they sense evil. In a sequel to the Ghost Rider film that released in 2007, we learnt how a common man (Nicholas Cage) was tricked into signing a ‘deal’ with Satan himself. The second part is a continuation of the story left there albeit with the evil going down. 
 
Johnny Blaze a.k.a. Ghost Rider is a stunt motorcyclist who was cursed to take the superhero form when he had traded his soul in return for life for his beloved father. He now wants to get rid of the curse hence chooses to travel far and beyond to escape the world, little does he know that those who seek him shall find him wherever he goes. Also, the Ghost Rider in this part is a sort of a mercenary force to save a little boy (half devil – half human) from being prey to the devil’s plan of bringing hell on earth that has been his hidden agenda.
 
Nicholas Cage does a neat job as the Marvel superhero character, but the story did not seem too convincing or engaging if I may say so even though the action sequences and a few 3D effects were good. The movie lost its fizz midway, which was very disappointing. It’s true when they say the smallest of detail makes a world of a difference. 
 
This is an unfortunate fate for most sequels, few are the same level or better than their respective predecessors. All this movie focuses on is Johnny Blaze’s fight against his inner demons switching back and forth with the history of the kid. Unimpressionable. Especially when all Nicholas Cage fans are aware of his love for comic book heroes. Nonetheless, all his optimistic audiences await a good story on screen soon.
 
Verdict: An average watch, can be avoided though.

      I’m not sure whether your question is genuine and you really don’t know or whether you’re just trolling. If you are unsure what a tribute is, it is something made to honor and respect something else. I am simply a fan of Marvel Comics and the many characters it has created throughout the years. While the majority of Marvel films haven’t lived up to all they could potentially be, they are still fun and as one fan, I’m sharing my love of Marvel with other fans.
