    One look at the dreadful mess that is Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will turn your whisper into a primal Cage scream: MAKE THIS MOVIE STOP! show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    With his (Cage) over-the-top delivery and operatically intense facial expressions, there's no way anyone could accuse him of phoning this one in. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    A water-treading sequel offering just enough kooky color to keep less-discerning funnybook fans occupied, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance nudges its obscure hero's mythology forward a bit without seeming to care much how it gets there. show more

    The smugness of the film grows wearying long before the end. Just because the people on and behind the camera are willing to acknowledge what we're watching is ridiculous crap doesn't really change the fact that, well, it is. show more

    The only part of this movie anyone's ever going to remember is the pair of scenes in which Ghost Rider pees flame. show more

    For acting to be this bad in movie not directed by Michael Bay or George Lucas, it has to be intentional. show more

    To question where things went wrong feels somehow strange, as the project seems to have been ill-conceived from the very start. show more

    So it's a half-certainty, half-shock that Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is both good and bad, a sequel that's hungry for thrills but bereft of the cohesiveness - and budget - to be a full meal. show more

    Like "Ghost Rider: Low Voltage," this is a surprisingly underpowered excursion into Marvel's mad world by Neveldine and Taylor. More purgatory than hellfire. show more

    Alas, unlike the duo's Crank films - also about a hero on the verge of explosion - Spirit of Vengeance lacks a solid gimmick to unify their transgressive gambits. show more

    Terrible direction and editing...Action scenes were a complete (for a lack of a better discription) *************. It seemed as though a bunch of random scenes were just thrown together...Just all around chaotic and uninteresting.

    One star is too good a rating for this movie. Bottom line, it sucked ! The directing was awful. Almost seeming like somebody shot a bunch of scenes and then decided at the end how to paste them together. Nick cage was awful, seemed like he just didn\'t care about his role; he was much better in the first ghost rider (well... as good as Nick Cage gets, let\'s be serious about his \'acting\') The devil in this movie is a big wuss; I\'ve seen scarier homeless people wanting to wash my windshield. The whole religious monks could have been a great idea if they actually kicked ass but instead were idiots and ended up doing nothing in the movie except waste oxygen. The only good part was the special effects of the ghost rider which were less cartoonish than the first one. As a Marvel fan, I suggest waiting till this get played on TV; don\'t waste your money on a DVD and certainly not BLU-RAY !

    Just saw it via On-Demand. I had a feeling when it hit and departed the theaters here so quickly. The storyline was the worse of all the Marvel sequels thus far. I don\'t know who\'s interpretation this was, but do those of us who have actually read the Ghost Rider comics a favor and don\'t let that team even in the vacinity of another Marvel movie. The only good thing was that I did not spend the price of a 3D movie for two and will successfully avoid the DVD. Even when it drops to $5, which should be very soon. Too bad, a good actor and a good comic hero flushed down the cinema drain.

    It was pretty ok. It wasn\'t what I thought it would be. It was still good though. The FX were ok. Not the greatest. A one time see. Rent the movie, don\'t buy unless you really liked it.

    1st one was just ok.This one was just a waste of time.Luckily we only wasted $2 apiece at the 2nd run movie theater.Wanted to get up and leave halfway through but thought it might get better. It didn\'t.

    True that this was one was not as good as the 1st rider was made very weak and the action wasn\'t as open as it was in 1st one due to low production though some scenes were unforgettable and Cage\'s acting was good too
