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.

It was exactly what I expected it to be, and I was fine with that.

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

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.

In every way an improvement upon its predecessor, though as humongously stupid as its predecessor was, that says very, very little.

If they would have just had more crazy Cage, and a faster 'Crank'-style film, it could have worked.

Memorable mainly for its cheesy CGI fakery.

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.

Cage appears to find his role as this second-tier Marvel Comics antihero alternately silly, tremendously fun, and the means to a decent paycheck for not all that much work.

A slight improvement in style, but unfortunately, the movie still lags behind in the script and character departments.

What's striking is that Cage appears so darned content that this is the weird path his career has taken. In that regard Cage isn't much different from Ghost Rider, impervious to bombs and giddily going down in flames.

I would not have bothered to go see this except for the fact that I liked the first "Ghost Rider" movie, starring Nicholas Cage. This was a disappointment.

The filmmakers deliver some gorgeous landscape shots of Asia Minor and leverage the 3D perspective to good effect, but the time between such moments of relief can seem like an eternity of movie hell.

There's no reason in 2012 for a high-profile studio film under the Marvel banner to feel like a low-rent direct-to-video sequel.

Ghost Rider is a multi-million dollar franchise and consequently the two directors have been obliged to tone down their act; a vintage example of the catch-all mentality that makes many of these movies mechanical, joyless affairs.

Another step downward in the spiral to the bottom of Nicolas Cage's film career.
