Ghost Rider (2007)

GR is not a particularly good movie, but a fun one nonetheless. It’s about a guy, Johnny Blaze, who in his youth sold his soul to the devil to safe his dad from cancer. Years later, when daddy devil has problems with devil junior, Blaze transforms into a bike riding, burning skeleton. His mission: stop devil junior from getting his hands on a mighty paper contract full of evil souls.

I could easily pick the plot apart, or the acting (especially Cage gives an odd performance as Blaze), yet I still enjoyed the movie on a dumb-but-fun level. GR is a movie that never takes itself too seriously, and yet plays the whole concept of the devil’s burning skeleton more or less straight. Odd, but it works most of the time. I just wish the movie had shown more action, Blaze’s enemies are too easily defeated.
