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 from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is a boring movie. The over-the-top outlandishness can't disguise that the whole 95 minutes represent one big snooze-fest."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"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."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"A schlocky, derivative, and incredibly ridiculous sequel."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"In terms of stupid, dumb, no-brainer comic-book films, they don't come much stupider, dumber and no-brainier than this."
‑ Matt Looker, TheShiznit.co.uk
"An atrocious sequel..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"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."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"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."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is too awful and cheesy to recommend to anyone, even the most diehard superhero fans."
‑ Christian Law, We Got This Covered
"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."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"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."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"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."
‑ Andrew Barker, Variety
"That mix of admirable restraint and unabashed pandering makes Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance a guilty pleasure, if not the most wholesome treat."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"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?"
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"As a B-grade horror/action hybrid, and the lowered expectations that come with that description, it's a very fun experience."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"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."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
