Show of hands, right now, who hated the first Ghost Rider? Not merely disliked. Hated.
Yep, me too. That atrocity followed the somehow-worse Wicker Man remake as the second volley in a series of “Nic Cage don’t care ‘bout his career no more” flicks that hurtled the respected thesp and part-time action hero down a path to ruin. He eventually bounced back with a handful of decent performances, and some genuinely fun genre flicks (including Drive Angry and Season of the Witch). For the record, this reviewer likes Cage quite a bit, even if I find some of his choices mind-boggling.
