    Saw this movie last night. I can only describe it as a 2 hour long saturday morning cartoon. The script and dialougue is fucking horrible. I was debating walking out, the only thing that kept me interested was seeing my hometown Melbourne, being used as the locations.

    Seriously the fight scenes are incredibly short and lame, the acting is horrible with only Sam Elliot and Cage delivering 'entertaining' perfomances. But other than that, you just don't care, you couldn't care less what happens, because all the scenes leading up to the supposed romantic attachment are so damn awkward as downright silly.

    And then theres the 20 minute flashback opening sequence which feels like an episode of the Bold and the Beauiful. Jesus christ it was almost painful to see such a cool conept as the Ghost Rider totally shot down in flames and wasted on a shitty script and hack director. The only feasable way I could come up with to make this movie any way entertaining is to play a drinking game, where every time the director uses a fast dolly shot up to a character who then turns aroud and glares into the camera, you take a shot. But unfortunately you'd be dead by halfway/

    I just saw Ghost Rider tonight and the thread starter is quite correct.
    This movie just downright blows.

    There were a few rare scenes that made me chuckle, but overall it was a definite waste of money for me.

    Info about it
    I own a fan edit version of DD on dvd.
    Here's the rundown:

    * Shorter running time (1 hr. 56 min.)
    * The opening scene of DD in the church is removed. The film begins with Matt in the court room with Quesada.
    * Origin story is spread out throughout the film and is much, much shorter.
    * The Matt/Elektra playground fight is a lot shorter and a lot less ridiculous.
    * The Kingpin's hip-hop introduction is cut.
    * That horrible CGI shot of DD kicking Bullseye is a lot shorter.
    * That horrid Evanescence song is removed from the Elektra training scene. It is now replaced with "Session" by Linkin Park, which fits the sequence very well. Before everyone moans about Linkin Park, this song is instrumental.
    * Most of Matt's voice overs are removed, except for the stuff towards the end.
    * This is kind of trivial, but it always bothered me: When Ben Urich hits delete on his keyboard to erase his story, he taps it once and erases the whole story, rather than holding it down. I have now changed it so it looks like he holds the button down. It's stupid, but it always annoyed me.
    * A few little cuts and trims and re-ordering of shots, to keep the pace and make everything work.

    Yeah I keep hearing terrible things about the movie. I wasn't planning on seeing it anyways because I thought the trailer looked terrible.

    it was meh...I didn't think it was terrible or at least as bad as people make it out to be, but it certainly wasn't good.

    I'm glad I read this thread...I was planning on going to see it this evening. Should've known Cage was gonna suck in this one. Wicker Man had to be the worst movie I've ever seen.

    I didnt think it was nearly as bad as i was expecting it to be. But then again, I love Nicholas Cage.

    Glad I went to a matanee to see it but all in all, i was pleased.

    the cgi that I saw in the previews on spidey 3 didn't appeal to me
    although the cgi in the previews to Fantastic Four 2 looked good.

    anyone who thought this would be a decent movie after watching one preview should probably be shot in the face.

    The best part of the movie was the first time Nick Cage turned into Ghost Rider and every scene with Eva Mendez :)

    I thought Fantastic 4 was better than this overhyped Marvel movie

    Dont believe in too much bad critic review.The fact that it raked in 40 million plus, it has got to be a great film.
