Nic Cage threatens us with more Ghost Rider
For the record, I kinda like Ghost Rider. That doesn't mean I think it' a good movie, because it's certainly isn't. In my mind, though, the movie's only real failing is not being dumb enough. This is a Bronze Age comic come to life, complete with obligatory fight scenes, unnecessary carnage and a fuck-it-let's-have-fun attitude. All that was really missing was a wall-to-wall soundtrack by Blue Oyster Cult, some gore and lots of gratuitous nudity and this movie would have been a black light masterpiece (instead of the glorified collection of video game cut scenes that it is.)
Above, Nicholas Cage expresses his enthusiasm to MTV news about returning to the spirit of vengeance.
