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.

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.

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.

Only a marginal improvement over the leaden first film, with Idris Elba providing a number of the film's few bright spots.

All things being equal, I would rather have seen Crank 3D.

Campy humor and excellent visual effects help star and ever perplexing Nicholas Cage, who once won an Oscar.

"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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

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.

Astonishing effects, brilliant production design, great locations, relentless pace and some wry lines well delivered give the film excellent entertainment value

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.

Every action scene serves as an oasis, sparsely scattered in the desert of B-movie dullness.

"Ghost Rider" is coming to suck out your soul. Or, at least $14 from your wallet. Paul Chambers, CNN.
