Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was met with an overwhelming amount of negative reviews from critics and failed to set the box office alight. However, what did YOU think of the movie? Find out here.

"With a weak script, uneven CG work, and a Nic Cage peformance so predictably loony its no longer amusing, Ghost Rider: Spirt of Vegeance aims to be trashy fun but ends up as plain trash."


That's the critic consensus over at Rotten Tomatoes where the movie currently sits with a lowly 14% approval rating based on 86 reviews. Simply put, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is a critical and commercial flop; currently sitting at sixth place in the US box office with a $37.8M cume. However, it would appear that you guys were a little more forgiving of the Neveldine/Taylor helmed Marvel Comics adaptation as over 43% of you decided that it perhaps wasn't all that bad. Check out the results below and sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.

Time to throw Nic Cage to the meat eating squirrels that terrorize my back yard.

Didn't see it(don't plan on it anytime soon) so I really can't say anything.
Nick56 - 2/26/2012, 4:30 PM

SageMode - 2/26/2012, 4:31 PM

I actually liked the movie it wasnt bad at all its not as great as the comic book movies with the time and care as most recent ones but it's not as bad as the daredevils and the fantastic four or even punisher war zone if I good action with a story and alot of Volience so don't judge it if u haven't seen it cuz there are alot worse comic book movies that has been made
novaprime - 2/26/2012, 4:43 PM
it was okkkk it wasnt the best... but it will be the best maybe out of all marvel single movies when.. when marvels gets the rights back and gives to an amazing and great director like deltoro..
Nick56 - 2/26/2012, 4:44 PM
Fantastic Four 1/2, Daredevil, Green Lantern, Punisher 1/2, Ghost Rider 1 >>>>>Ghost Rider 2. It was that bad. The directors had no clue what they were doing. I honestly hope they never direct any movie again. THAT IS HOW BAD IT WAS.
MrReese - 2/26/2012, 4:47 PM
Reboot this bitch in 5 yrs that's what I thank! XD but only after or if Marvel gets it. :)
UnscrupalousSmurf - 2/26/2012, 4:48 PM
I've said before, not every comic book character needs a movie.
mizeatwizad52 - 2/26/2012, 4:53 PM
Just watched it last night, and it wasn't nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be. It was in no way,shape, or form great by any means. It was cheasy B movie goodness with some decent action and special effects thrown in. Def agree with jfromkrypton and nova prime here...it was ok.
Lilvic92 - 2/26/2012, 5:04 PM
Besides Street Fighter Legend of Chun-Li I'll probably say that Ghost Rider 2 is the worst movie I've ever seen in my entire life..I can't even troll TDKR by saying this is better anymore. That's how bad it was
DOOM2012 - 2/26/2012, 5:04 PM
I LOVE SONYS MOVIES BUT ALL MARVEL MOVIES SUCK. TELL ME ONE 4 STAR MARVEL FLIC ???? NONE.... SO MAKE MINE "DC"
DarthTesla - 2/26/2012, 5:07 PM
I havent seen it yet, but it can't be worst CBM ever.

That belongs to Catwoman.
Zarog - 2/26/2012, 5:11 PM
@Doom Butthurt that Batman has been the only GOOD franchise, and it has only been good for 2 movies? Spider-Man 1 & 2 were great. All the MARVEL Studios films have been decent-good. You can keep your Superman Returns and Green Lantern movies. I'll keep watching MARVEL.
nerdman81 - 2/26/2012, 5:20 PM
@DOOM

There hasn't been a 4 star DC movie either! It's all subjective anyway! IMHO ALL the Marvel Studios movies have been leaps and bounds better, more fun, and faithful than the new so-called Batman movies! Make mine Marvel because they're just better!!
acidbath - 2/26/2012, 5:23 PM
@doom enjoy you're one cbm from dc after this it will be done too. Make mine marvel.
acidbath - 2/26/2012, 5:24 PM
Your
Devilhunter318 - 2/26/2012, 5:28 PM
@nerdman, The Dark Knight got four stars, but Marvel Studios has been kicking a lot of ass
MrHateful - 2/26/2012, 5:30 PM
@Doom2012

Yep because Dc has made how many epic cbm's? Oh wait Batman, Batman, super... nope just Batman.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/iron_man/ hmm 94% lets see, 20/100=5 stars would be 80%-100% which would make iron man a 5 star film.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/captain-america/ hmmm cap at 79% which would make it a 4 star film.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/thor/ Thor also in the 4 star range.

Now lets compare it to the last outings.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/770677993/ GL last summers big super hero flick that just happened to get owned by every other cbm.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/jonah_hex/ Wow, yeah epic there ruined one of the best western comics by making it a dragon ball z movie..yay!!

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1226860-losers/ Epic comic, good actors, shit script. another dc winner here.

The only leg dc has had to stand on in the last 20 years is Nolan. He's the only director that has done a decent thing in the name of dc. Marvel movies has some real shit movies but in the last 12 years since cbm's went huge Marvel has a better track record.

DAREDEVIL gets constant hate and this piece of steaming horse crap gets praise?!?!?!?!? Someone please explain...
nerdman81 - 2/26/2012, 5:39 PM
@Devilhunter318

As I said, it's subjective. Just because some critics rated it a good movie doesn't make it a TRUE 4-star film (especially not to the fans) Have you seen some of the movies critics give such accolades to? So much boring tripe that they CAN'T be taken seriously by anyone who likes to be entertained!!
YoungThanos - 2/26/2012, 5:39 PM
CHRONICAL >>>>>>>>ghost rider.
vtopa - 2/26/2012, 5:50 PM
It was good, better than the last one. Quit whining and revel in the knowledge that you get to see GR live TWICE.
schuellerdg - 2/26/2012, 5:54 PM
Why can't they just keep up with the mythology of the character. The GhostRider could never turn someone into ash my whipping the chain at them.
With all those guys shooting at him it would of been awesome to see him whip the chain having the chain break up in shards taking out everyone shooting at him. I was really hopeing for it.
SecretAvenger001 - 2/26/2012, 6:05 PM
I have seen both Ghost Rider movies now and I hate to say this but to me the first movie was better. The second one wasn't terrible just not that good.
BIGBMH - 2/26/2012, 6:11 PM
I still haven't seen it and don't plan on watching it any time soon. Not trying to be hostile, but in the grand scheme of things, there aren't many comic book characters that I give less of a crap about than Ghost Rider. I'm sure there's some good material written for him, but for me it's a second mediocre movie about a character I have no investment in. You know what they say...

blackula - 2/26/2012, 6:37 PM
No worse movie than Daredevil.
ibravosp5 - 2/26/2012, 6:43 PM
Want to see it, but will have to wait til DVD.
ibravosp5 - 2/26/2012, 6:44 PM
Oh yeah guys I made my first poll, some of y'all can look at it. Don't know how to post it to the main page.
Teois42 - 2/26/2012, 6:56 PM
So bad it was worth 15 bucks. aha
batfan39 - 2/26/2012, 6:59 PM
I wouldn't say it was awful... but I'll say I liked the first one a lot more.
Supes17 - 2/26/2012, 7:00 PM
Saw it.
It WAS awful imo
Equivocal - 2/26/2012, 7:10 PM
I haven't seen it yet.

I was at the movie theater ready to buy a ticket for Ghost, then 'Chronicle' started at the same time so I opted for the later and skiped the motorcycle movie.

I'm so glad I chose tho see Chronicle, that was a good movie !!!!!
tazz119 - 2/26/2012, 7:16 PM
The movie isn't anywhere near Catwoman bad (unwatchable!) or even Elektra bad (barely watchable), but it still isn't very good.
Luther - 2/26/2012, 7:17 PM
"Legend of Chun-Li and this are the worst movies I've seen in my entire life" ..have you not seen the 94' Street Fighter?! Legend of Chun-Li was freaking Oscar worthy compered to that! And who in the hell, started up this bandwagon of "Daredevil was actually decent" nonsense??
LokiTrickskin - 2/26/2012, 7:20 PM
@nowtheresaBATman

Why?
Ceejay - 2/26/2012, 7:30 PM
Everyone already knows this film is crap, why do we need to go over this again and again and again!
