I’m gonna keep this one short. I’m only gonna say that I was bored and I had a free ticket, so I checked it out. It’s exactly like how you would imagine it is. And I’m not saying that as a good or bad thing. The acting is all pretty good. Alfred Molina kicks ass. Nic Cage is Nic Cage, (but more restrained then he’s been in a while). And Jay Baruchel is charming enough with the very little character development that he is given (despite having the most screen-time). The real show is the special-effects which are all quite pretty, especially the scene with a very impressive looking dragon. The main problem that the film has its nearly complete inertia. The story just never picks up. The entire movie just floats by your eyes and is simply there. You never once really feel for these characters at all. Ah well, it’s still mildly distracting enough to be worth your time. (Oh and somebody from Disney owes Ryu from “Street Fighter” a shit load of money for super-power move copyright infringement.)
And as an added bonus, here is Nic Cage’s appearance on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson:
Nic even announces that they’re going to make “Ghost Rider 2” which, despite how unimpressive that news is, still remains the only time that anything has ever been announced on Craig’s show!.
