Dumb sequel is too loud and excessive
Granted, I marginally enjoyed the first Ghost Rider film. It was fun, campy, pulpy, and moderately entertaining, with a humorous script. Now, with the sequel, there was a director switch, and I did notice one improvement over the previous film: its special effects are cooler and better rendered. But in nearly every other aspect, it is much less entertaining. There is still action, but its script is weaker than that of the first film, and Nic Cage's performance is much too predictable by now. On the upside, Violante Placido is very nice as the film's hottie, and Fergus Riordan is a very talented child actor. But the plot is a garbled mess that holds almost no similarity to the first film; like, why is the devil played by Ciarán Hinds instead of Peter Fonda? The two actors couldn't be more different.
This film might please heavy action junkies, but most others will be dissatisfied.
