Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Reviews
Reviewers who viewed an early preview screening at the December 2011 Butt-Numb-A-Thon in Austin expressed negative reactions to the film. Two attendants said it was worse than the first Ghost Rider film, and one said that the sequel makes the first film "look like The Dark Knight" by comparison. Rotten Tomatoes consensus states: "With a weak script, uneven CG work, and a Nicolas 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."
The first Ghost Rider movie was ok, not top notch, but ok despite Nicolas Cage being in his usual overdrive mode. But, to be honest "Ghost Rider - Spirit of Vengeance" looks like a poor Eastern Europe low budget production and the feeling of being a bad tv-film looms all over the film. The plot, the script, the acting, and the special effects are just poor. Nicolas Cage canīt play Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, itīs a fact. He just fucks it up. Idris Elba seems lost and you just know when Christopher Lambert has a part it simply wonīt be a film to remember and when a film is not screened in advance for critics you can figure out the end result by yourself. "Ghost Rider - Spirit of Vengeance" classifies as a pretty bad comic superhero production.
