Johnny Blaze (Nicholas Cage) is back, because the devil, Roarke (Ciaran Hinds) is looking to take human form and only Johnny, firey ghostly skeleton motorcycle rider, can stop him in this sequel to the original 2007 Ghost Rider film. Johnny wants to be free of the curse and a guru tells him of a way to rid of it by helping a young boy whom Roarke is after to help him in the transformation to human form. Johnny sets out to help the boy at whatever the cost to himself.
This is another one, just like the other one. If you enjoy a fast paced motorcycle chase action film, and you loved the first one, then this one is just the same. The problem for me is simply that it’s just the same. The original film was somewhat original. It was something entirely new. This one is so much the same, that I really found myself getting bored. I tried to get into this movie, but found my thoughts wandering time and time again. I just really didn’t get into it at all. I thought this was so much weaker than the original one. I didn’t care for it very much, and would have been happy to skip this film. No different story, no different action, almost the same views, just the same. I’d say, skip it.
