Will Ghost Rider 2 Be Potentially Watchable?

Posted by Grey Friday, December 3, 2010

We all know what are the possible effects watching Nicholas Cage's 2007 film Ghost Rider can induced. (Hint: anywhere between Zarathos'personal hell and the next imaginable deepest meditation session with Peter Fonda's Mephistopheles)

And now we know that Nicholas Cage himself have some words describing that bad taste you were left with three years ago.

It was almost like the nth sign of apocalypse when news of the sequel to Director Mark Steven Johnson and actor Nicholas Cage's disastrous 2007 Superhero train-wreck were being green-lighted. Then came news that the sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, is not actually a sequel and will be directed by by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, known together professionally as Neveldine/Taylor, creators of the amazingly adrenaline-pumping action film Crank, and its sequel, Crank: High Voltage.

Will good ol' flaming skull'second outing on the big screen be a much more bearable experience, now that it is in the hands of relatively more capable hands? We will have to cross our fingers on that. Meanwhile, iO9 has an exclusive interview with Cage himself, where Cage unleashes some of his thought on the first Ghost Rider.

Those two are exceptionally original. How else are they changing the tone of the first film, is it even similar to the original?

It is a completely different film. The first one, which I won't denigrate — I liked the first one, but it was almost like a fairy tale. Almost like a Disney fairy tale interpretation of Faust. This one is completely re-conceived, it's not even connected to the first one, it's a different origin sequence. But I think it will be a brand new experience. It has more adrenaline involved in the film making process itself, and in the movie when you see it. Again, I think the stuff we're able to get into with Ghost Rider is going to be a lot more abstract and not like anything you've seen before. So I'm very excited by it.

If only Nic Cage were so outrightly frank during the promotion of the film back in 2007, and he will have a fan in me. Now, he just earn my wrath due to that traumatic experience I had, wishing every appearance of Cage'scene were given a touch of flaming skull CG.

So, in short, yes, the answer is yes. It is potentially watchable, but note that it is still fully capable of ruining whatever positive sentiments you might have of Marvel's good ol' flaming skull.
