Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Nic Cage's flaming-skull superhero gets 'Crank'ed.


Action

Rod Lott
Too bad Nicolas Cage had to sell off his comic book collection a while back, because he could've used a refresher course on Ghost Rider, the Marvel Comics character he’s now played twice. I'm in the minority that found the 2007 original to be deeply flawed fun, and I think the same of this sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, yet I still think about the lost opportunity both represent.

Vile

Not for the weak — duh.


Horror

Rod Lott
With Vile, we may have a new cinematic achievement: the first torture-porn film to open with a quote from Gandhi. Take that with a grain of salt — or perhaps the box of kosher salt poured into the wounds of some sad bastard by some demented madman in the prologue.

247˚F

Nowhere near as hot as it thinks.


Thriller

Rod Lott
247˚F is as compelling as you'd think about a movie set almost entirely in a sauna would be: not at all, once you think about it. I'm all for films set in single and/or small spaces, but this one has nowhere to go.
