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?
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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.

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

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

Funny in all the wrong places and long at 95 minutes. Cage might be on fine psychotic form, but the flaming skull barely manages a sizzle this time around.

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

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.

Nic Cage doesn't get a chance to qualify for the Razzies in this one, which prompts me to recommend you rent Drive Angry instead. That movie has a much better use of a human skull.

Lacking even the perverse pleasure of a memorable Nicolas Cage performance, this messy superhero pic conjures unpleasant memories of what was until now Marvel's biggest comic book failure, Elektra.

Cage is the only one here aware that he is making a B-movie comedy. Everyone else plays it straight. (Parental Movie Review also available)

It's almost as bad as the first movie and not nearly as fun to ridicule. And in retrospect, that makes it feel like an even bigger failure.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

This is a movie of shattering ineptitude, starting at the script and reaching into every aspect of the cheap, rushed, sh***y-looking production.

I get the fact that much of it is done with tongue firmly planted in cheek, but the problem is that this just isn't any fun.

It's ludicrously flimsy and over-the-top with a flaming chain whip included.

This is a boring movie. The over-the-top outlandishness can't disguise that the whole 95 minutes represent one big snooze-fest.

This is a movie about a flaming skeleton that rides a motorcycle -- there's no excuse for it to be this dull.

When I go to see a Nicolas Cage movie I expect cheesy fun, not something this dull.

An aggressively mediocre improvement on the first film.
