Bewertungen für Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has been widely touted as a reboot of the franchise, promising a darker edgier rider than last time. The film has new writers (including Goyer, who has writing credits on the Blade franchise and Batman Begins) ...
Unfortunately, because it is hemmed in by a screenplay that wants to play everything with a certain level of four panel seriousness, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance sags...and when was the last time you heard anyone say that about the duo's...
Cage returns as the title character plus one in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, a superhero-thriller followup to Ghost Rider that's based on the Marvel Comic of the same name.
In Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance we catch up to Johnny Blaze (Nic Cage) many years after the events of the first film. “The Rider” has apparently grown into an all-consuming force of nature that Blaze desperately tries to hold in check...
So it's a half-certainty, half-shock that Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is both good and bad, a sequel that's hungry for thrills but bereft of the cohesiveness—and budget—to be a full meal. With no direct competition this weekend, box office prospects
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is a movie you'll either love or hate. Most critics will almost certainly hate it. I, for one, loved it.
New York Post
Ordinarily I’d be into the idea of seeing Nicolas Cage’s face burn, but alas, “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” is not a documentary.
Like a flash fire, the excitement in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance burns out just as quickly as it appears. Maybe faster. Before Nicolas Cage's Johnny Blaze or even his flame-headed alter ego show, we're given an action sequence followed by a chase.
Alas, "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" is not my favorite Mark Neveldine/Brian Taylor film. I know, I know: Am I even supposed to have a favorite Neveldine/Taylor film? Isn't this directing and sometimes writing team supposed to be something like a coup
A few random thoughts about Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance... A single viewing makes it obvious why Marvel Enterprises would move forward with the sequel to a feature whose box office performance was underwhelming.
The A.V. Club
And the charismatic Idris Elba debuts in a key role as an alcoholic priest who recruits Cage’s unique services. Yet instead of elevating the franchise, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance ends up squandering even more potential.

Certain to be David S. Goyer lesser release of the year – he co-write The Dark Knight Rises too – Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance follows Johnny Blaze into Eastern Europe, though while he’s trying to stay away from trouble, Blaze is instead called...
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance does a pretty good job of disassociating itself from 2007's first, unpopular (though financially profitable) Ghost Rider picture. Johnny Blaze's origin story is summed up in the first moments, and only the most rigid...
Despite some impressive special effects, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is a disappointing sequel that lacks both the lightness of touch and the sense of fun that was present in the original film.
Film School Rejects
It’s easy to predict one’s response to Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. You either accept the idea of a flaming-skull Nicolas Cage sucking the souls out of leather jacket-clad baddies, or you don’t. You relish Cage in full-on, over-the-top crazy mode...
Ghost Rider was a box office hit, although no one really seemed to like it very much. Given that he's one of Marvel Comics' edgier characters, his debut movie was unexpectedly tame. When I heard the sequel would be directed by Mark Neveldine/Brian Taylor,
Like the first Ghost Rider movie, this one burns plenty of rubber trying to swerve around plot holes and thinly written characters. As a showcase for random acts of bad-assery, the movie has its moments, like when the Ghost Rider pees fire or eats...
There's bound to be a lot of puzzlement as to how this sequel to 2007's Ghost Rider, the Marvel Comics adaptation starring Nicolas Cage as the eponymous daredevil-turned-Faustian vigilante with a flaming skull for a head, required three people to write...
Fans of the Ghost Rider comics may see Spirit of Vengeance and be relieved to find a harder, crazier version of the character, but there's nothing really here for anyone else, save a handful of good effects and Idris Elba's mystifying, constantly funny...

If there was any hope for the "Ghost Rider" franchise after that disastrous first entry five years ago, it was in hiring "Crank" directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Their frenetic, cracked-out style would theoretically complement Nicolas Cage's...
I woke up early this morning, ran to my local multiplex, dropped fifteen bucks on a 3D matinee ticket expecting to get my mind blown by my favorite lunatic, Nicolas Cage, and my favorite lunatic directing team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor...
i liked how the put out the rider in this one alittle better visuals were cool ...
Looking at their careers, Nicolas Cage reminds me of William Shatner. While Shatner never won an Oscar, he is notorious for his ability to overact to a comedic level. The funniest part about Shatner’s career is that sometime in the 70s, he was in on...
If this sequel had any balls, they'd take the reins of Johnny Blaze and hand the character over to someone talented like Idris Elba. At least then there'd be an interesting angle to this wretched sequel to a painfully mediocre movie that barely anyone...
The first Ghost Rider was derided for its lack of edge — something Crank’s Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor were meant to fix. Instead, here’s another 12A attempt at the guy whose skull periodically explodes into flame as he sucks evildoers’ souls.
I’m sure that watching things going up in flames will be just as good in 2D with wildcat Cage now in two roles instead of giving way to anonymous stuntmen.
Ghost Rider : Spirit Of Vengence ถือว่าเป็นหนังฮีโร่ แอ็คชั่น ภาคต่อที่ทำออกมาได้ดีในด้านของ สไตล์งานเถื่อนๆ ของผู้กำกับ และ ฉากแอ็คชั่นที่พอดูได้ แต่นอกเหนือจากนั้นมีแต่ความน่าผิดหวัง ไล่ตั้งแต่ด้าน บท ประเด็น และ ความสนุกที่ไม่สามารถเทียบภาคแรกได้เลย...
A handful of lustreless FX showdowns are used as so-so bookends, but without the Western kookiness and half as much hot-chain-whipping action, it somehow manages to make the 2007 original look pretty good. Not for nothing is the most memorable moment...
In Spirit of Vengeance Blaze still struggles with his demonic side while hiding out in Eastern Europe. But he is soon called upon by a holy man called Moreau (Idris Elba) to stop the Devil – Roarke (Ciarán Hinds) – and save a young boy’s soul...

Neveldine and Taylor's hyper-kinetic visual style works best during the repeated punch-ups between Ghost Rider and Satan's flaxen-haired albino henchman Blackout (Johnny Whitworth). The directing duo also make good use of the Romanian and Turkish...

There are few filmmakers working in the action genre today who demonstrate the same wicked virtuosity as the double act that is Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Credited professionally as Neveldine/Taylor...

At a time when Marvel were a little more reckless with their cinematic comic book properties (and more than a little high on the smell of torn-up X-Men and Spider-Man ticket stubs) they released a slew of lesser-known superhero adventures.
2012 was shaping up to be one heck of an exciting year for comic book heroes on the big screen, with plenty of hype built up for Marc Webb's Spider-man reboot, the highly anticipated coming together of individual heroes from their respective film...
