Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: With a weak script, uneven CG work, and a Nic Cage performance so predictably loony it's no longer amusing, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance aims to be trashy fun but ends up as plain trash.

A schlocky, derivative, and incredibly ridiculous sequel.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is too awful and cheesy to recommend to anyone, even the most diehard superhero fans.

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?

In terms of stupid, dumb, no-brainer comic-book films, they don't come much stupider, dumber and no-brainier than this.

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.

As a B-grade horror/action hybrid, and the lowered expectations that come with that description, it's a very fun experience.

A fantastic movie no matter what critics may say! Full throttle action scenes and some fantastic acting. Some lines may be cheesy but hey, what the heck, its a superhero movie! This movie is definitely worth seeing, and a great opening to the Comic Book Movie season of 2012

With the somewhat-incoherency of directors Neveldine & Taylor, Spirit of Vengeance is much more weaker than its already failing predecessor. The tiring script and mostly a predictably performance from its cast, including its protagonist in Nicolas Cage, makes waste of this satanic Marvel anti-hero. 1/5
