Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012)



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.

Movie Info

Nicolas Cage reprises his role as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance. In this gritty new vision for the character, directed by Neveldine/Taylor (Crank), Johnny is still struggling with his curse as the devil's bounty hunter - but he may risk everything as he teams up with the leader of a group of rebel monks (Idris Elba) to save a young boy from the devil... and possibly rid himself of his curse forever. -- (C) Sony

Critic Reviews for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

All Critics (114) | Top Critics (30)

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.

February 24, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

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

February 19, 2012 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Whether Cage is still paying off castles, appeasing the IRS, or rebuilding his comic book collection, it's clear he's decided, for now, to trade his talent for cold, hard cash.

February 18, 2012 | Rating: 2/5

Spirit of Vengeance is weighted down for long stretches in the middle, as it starts to treat its own religious hokum plotline with undue seriousness.

Shot in Romania and Turkey, the scenery is terrific and gives you something to watch other than this confusing mess. Johnny Blaze, you're just a candle in the wind, mate.

February 17, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The film, though, has some redeeming qualities, including the presence of Idris Elba as the obligatory good guy, who encourages Johnny to get Danny into the protective custody of a religious order.

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
