Yesterday we went to see the Marvel Comic Book movie Ghost Rider. We went in thinking it was going to be another cheesey comic book remake like Daredevil or The Hulk. We were pleasantly surprised by what we saw.
Nicolas Cage, with more hair, buffer bod (WOW what a bod) and shiney new teeth? pulled off the character of Johnny Blaze. The acting in the movie wasnt the greatest, the story was a bit slow in parts to introduce the storyline of the comic book, but when the Ghost Rider appeared, it was well worth the wait. It felt like a modern day western with a twist. Enjoyable movie, I would give it 2 1/2 stars out of 4. (Chris and my rating scale) I wouldnt say it is a MUST see, but if you are a comic book fan, it is worth the hour and 40 minutes.
