Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, 2011 - ★★

I've seen but don't remember the first film but I don't think that had any bearing on this viewing. It also doesn't help seeing this of the back of great action films like Godzilla, X-Men DOTP and Edge Of Tomorrow. If Edge Of Tomorrow manages to capture everything that's good about video games then Spirit of Vengeance does the opposite and highlights what's wrong with so many video games. A nonsense story, dull characters, weak performances, overblown action that looks good but has no meaning, flashily edited with energy but no soul or significance. You also only get brief moments of Cage being Cage before he's replaced with FX, I'd love to see the version without the flaming skull.
