Like the first Ghost Rider movie, this one burns plenty of rubber trying to swerve around plot holes and thinly written characters.
Adam Markovitz - Entertainment Weekly
The film, though, has some redeeming qualities, including the presence of Idris Elba as the obligatory good guy, who encourages Johnny to get Danny into the protective custody of a religious order.
Neil Genzlinger - New York Times
Time for this rider to head off into the sunset.
Peter Bradshaw - Guardian [UK]
The standards of all involved are so obviously floorboard-high, there's not much to say after the lights come up other than one of Blaze's "one-liners": "So, that happened."
Nick Pinkerton - Village Voice
Whether Cage is still paying off castles, appeasing the IRS, or rebuilding his comic book collection, it's clear he's decided, for now, to trade his talent for cold, hard cash.
Elizabeth Weitzman - New York Daily News
A goofy, gonzo thrill ride, "Vengeance" is a bad movie sequel so bad it's good - a bad movie that's almost a great bad movie.
Roger Moore - Dallas Morning News
What more would one want? Well, actually, quite a bit, but this movie ain't got much more than that. Still, as noisesome entertainments go, it 'brings' that thing we sometimes call 'it.'
Glenn Kenny - MSN Movies
Spirit of Vengeance is weighted down for long stretches in the middle, as it starts to treat its own religious hokum plotline with undue seriousness.
Andrew Barker - Variety
Ordinarily I'd be into the idea of seeing Nicolas Cage's face burn, but alas, "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" is not a documentary.
Kyle Smith - New York Post
Shot in Romania and Turkey, the scenery is terrific and gives you something to watch other than this confusing mess. Johnny Blaze, you're just a candle in the wind, mate.
Linda Barnard - Toronto Star
An aggressively mediocre improvement on the first film.
William Goss - Film.com
This is a boring movie. The over-the-top outlandishness can't disguise that the whole 95 minutes represent one big snooze-fest.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance nudges its obscure hero's mythology forward a bit without seeming to care much how it gets there.
John DeFore - Hollywood Reporter
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!
Peter Travers - Rolling Stone
Like a laboratory experiment on how often a movie can spin from bad to good and back again.
Mark Olsen - Los Angeles Times
Dave White - Movies.com
Grae Drake - Movies.com
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Combustible Celluloid
A schlocky, derivative, and incredibly ridiculous sequel.
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is too awful and cheesy to recommend to anyone, even the most diehard superhero fans.
Christian Law - We Got This Covered
This is destined for a place at the bottom of the pile come the end of the year, but in all honesty, did anyone really expect anything good out of a movie about a guy with a flaming skull going around killing people?
Jeff Beck - Examiner.com
In terms of stupid, dumb, no-brainer comic-book films, they don't come much stupider, dumber and no-brainier than this.
Matt Looker - TheShiznit.co.uk
There are flashes of Neveldine/Taylor's self-deprecating sense of humor also, but even those can't overcome a story that's completely inert and uninvolving.
Eric Melin - Scene-Stealers.com
As a B-grade horror/action hybrid, and the lowered expectations that come with that description, it's a very fun experience.
William Bibbiani - CraveOnline
An atrocious sequel...
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
Ghost Rider only excels when it embraces the gonzo direction of directors Neveldine and Taylor. Sadly though, the film seems to be pumping its brakes more than riding with a vengeance.
R. L. Shaffer - IGN DVD
Save your money. Read "The Devil and Daniel Webster" or "Doctor Faustus." Listen to Robert Johnson. Or just be a decent human being, so you'll never have the devil to pay.
James Plath - Movie Metropolis
Only a marginal improvement over the leaden first film, with Idris Elba providing a number of the film's few bright spots.
Michael Dequina - TheMovieReport.com
All things being equal, I would rather have seen Crank 3D.
Rob Gonsalves - eFilmCritic.com
Campy humor and excellent visual effects help star and ever perplexing Nicholas Cage, who once won an Oscar.
Bruce Bennett - Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"The prophecy says the ritual will take place ..." tells you that this movie was entirely dictated by location. The ritual could take place in the middle of Times Square and it would still end up looking like it was shot in an anonymous Romanian nightclub
Adam Lippe - Examiner.com
A goofy, gonzo thrill ride, Vengeance is a bad movie sequel so bad it's good -- a bad movie that's almost a great bad movie.
Roger Moore - McClatchy-Tribune News Service
Beyond the action there isn't much going on. It has a dud plot that attempts to reboot the story of the character. Cage revels in his own insanity and you have to wonder if the guy gives a crap anymore.
Cameron Williams - The Popcorn Junkie
Astonishing effects, brilliant production design, great locations, relentless pace and some wry lines well delivered give the film excellent entertainment value
Andrew L. Urban - Urban Cinefile
An unwanted sequel to one of the worst comic book films ever made blasts onto the screen with such assaultive energy that memories of its predecessor are incinerated from your brain.
Tom Clift - Moviedex
Although Spirit of Vengeance never reaches the madcap heights of Neveldine/Taylor's unhinged Crank, it's an inventive, wonderfully weird, and surprisingly focused one-shot comic-book adventure.
Simon Miraudo - Quickflix
Every action scene serves as an oasis, sparsely scattered in the desert of B-movie dullness.
Liam Maguren - Flicks.co.nz
"Ghost Rider" is coming to suck out your soul. Or, at least $14 from your wallet. Paul Chambers, CNN.
Paul Chambers - CNNRadio
It was exactly what I expected it to be, and I was fine with that.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Elba has his usual charisma and Hinds has a powerful presence of lurking menace, but a film that explores what happens when the Ghost Rider has to urinate while enflamed, and does so with a wink and a smile, is not to be taken seriously
Andrea Chase - Killer Movie Reviews
In every way an improvement upon its predecessor, though as humongously stupid as its predecessor was, that says very, very little.
Tim Brayton - Antagony & Ecstasy
Under the turbocharged bad-trip direction of 'Crank' auteurs Neveldine and Taylor, this impossible and absurd scenario seems inspired not by a comic book but by a drug fiend's delirium.
John Beifuss - Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
If they would have just had more crazy Cage, and a faster 'Crank'-style film, it could have worked.
Jeff Bayer - The Scorecard Review
Memorable mainly for its cheesy CGI fakery.
Susan Granger - SSG Syndicate
Bob Grimm - Tucson Weekly
- Austin Chronicle
What an unholy mess is 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,' in which a man who made a deal with the devil roams the earth in search of bad guys.
Linda Cook - KWQC-TV (Iowa)
Ghost Rider 2 good, mindless fun.
Charles Koplinski - Illinois Times
Rosemary's Baby on hot wheels.
John Wirt - Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
A slight improvement in style, but unfortunately, the movie still lags behind in the script and character departments.
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Common Sense Media
