3. “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” (2012)
Like I said earlier, the best parts of the original GR were the transformation scenes, well in GR: SOV, these scenes are AMPED to 13! The movie just flows better and the director’s gave Cage free reign to the character and that made the movie at least a little closer to the source material. No more stupid southern accent, no more jelly beans, and NO cowboy hat! The only thing that wasn’t “Ghost Rider-y” was that there was NO love interest and Johnny Blaze has always been a romantic (even if he had a demon inside of him). Is this film perfect? Even as a comic film it has flaws, but is a VAST improvement in tone and execution than the original. Hell, at least the filmmakers let Cage perform the Ghost Rider bits and not some stunt guy, kudos for that!
