This was so absurd and pointless, it was locked in my brain, and I'd forgotten I'd watch this, maybe a year ago, in one of those sunday afternoons, where you binge on anything, even bad cinema. So you have the ability to watch the worse movie until the very end, the final credits with the corny soundtrack. And then, if you're lucky, you forget about it. I had.
This movie wasn't as bad as everybody likes to make out. There are some pretty badass moments in this film and I hope Ghost Rider finds his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe again in some form or fashion.
2.5 stars because I genuinely believe it's very slightly underrated. It has a lot of heart under its brash and stupid exterior and the idea that Johnny Blaze listens to The Carpenters is glorious (as is drinking jelly beans from a martini glass). Despite working for the devil, Ghostrider himself only metes out justice to small-time crooks and saves a young goth girl from a knife carrying hoodlum. He's good people.
Donal Logue gifts America with the phrase "gravy train with biscuit wheels" and then dies soon after. Eva Mendes is busting out of her shirts at all times, something she seems to suggest was her idea on the audio commentary.
