GHOST RIDER (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Ghost Rider
features Nicolas Cage, Sam Elliott, and Eva Mendes. It puts the Marvel Comics hero, Ghost Rider, on the big screen. The movie works on a tremendously simple storyline with a single impact—the startling picture of a motorcycle rider on fire who hunts the bad guys at night. Great work for Director Mark Steven Johnson’s interpretation of this comic character.
