Opening in theaters today is Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance 3D. And I’m pretty much going to tell you that you shouldn’t go see it. While it has some promising moments, it’s way too satisfied doing way too little.
Stay away unless you’re a Neveldine/Taylor or Nic Cage completionist. Or unless you want to see Idris Elba as a drunk French priest. Or unless you want to see Ciaran Hinds kick some ass. Gah! See, I’m listing all these things that kind of work! But they don’t. They’re just little awesome buoys in a sea of “is this over yet?”
“It’s just a shame that the sum of these positive parts doesn’t make a compelling whole. When I first heard that Neveldine and Taylor would be doing this movie, I was excited to see what they could do with a bigger budget and how they could subvert the genre. It turns out they did exactly what I expected and still somehow let me down. Perhaps I didn’t factor in that they might think it was enough to execute this film in the exact way they’ve executed everything else. Only, this time, so much more is put in front of them but they never extend their reach.”
