Forced to do the devil's bidding, Johnny is determined to confront his fate and use his curse and powers to defend the innocent.
Action Sci-Fi - Nothing unexpected here. This adaptation of the comic book is
exactly what it appears to be. It's action packed and
character driven. The film has a lot to offer to a wide audience of
moviegoers: action, effects, alongside character and story.
PROFANITY: 1 S-word, 10 milder words. SEX/NUDITY: None VIOLENCE: Some fights and gun play. Many are killed. Nothing graphic. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol use and smoking. Nothing excessive. ACTION: MANY fights, chases and explosions throughout. COMEDY: Occasional wisecracks and humorous dialog.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 167 moviegoers:
TEENS:While most enjoyed "Ghost Rider" very much, the opinions aren't quite as high as I thought they might be for a movie targeted at teens. Two-thirds of the males really enjoyed this movie. The females weren't far behind. Unfortunately, quite a few rated it only OK/average and lower, especially the females. I strongly recommend it to the guys but not quite as strongly to the females.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:About two-thirds really enjoyed it. That leaves quite a few who rated it average to below average. For a movie targeted at this age group, these opinions are a bit disappointing, but certainly not bad.
ADULTS:The male and female opinions are about the same. Approximately two-thirds enjoyed "Ghost Rider" very much. About half of the remaining opinions are OK/average. That leaves a fair number of low opinions. I recommend "Ghost Rider," but mainly to those that feel strongly that this is the type of movie they would enjoy.
