Expectations have never been high, when it concerns Crank helmers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s ability to create an especially captivating take on the Ghost Rider mythology in this month’s sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Early word is that the film doesn’t exactly offer much, as far as richly-realized character and plot development goes – but that it does deliver the goods where bombastic action set pieces and nonstop thrills are concerned.

Heck, going by the previous Spirit of Vengeance TV spots and featurettes released – along with the handful of new clips we have for you to watch today – it’s easy to forget that this followup DOES actually have a plot; one that could set the stage for a welcome change-up in casting for future Ghost Rider installments, no less.

Here’s the official lowdown on said storyline for the Ghost Rider sequel:

In the successor to the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Johnny (Nicolas Cage) – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.

Check out the latest clips from Spirit of Vengeance to judge for yourself if the crazy action sequences in this flick are justification enough to see this movie on the big screen:





Crazy practical stunts involving motorbikes, destructive pieces of construction equipment being lit on fire, and gritty shootouts between mercenaries and CGI-enhanced demonic warriors? If nothing else, Spirit of Vengeance should have plenty to offer its target demographic of teenage boys and die-hard actions fans, alike.

Comic book fans who are hoping for a superhero adaptation that offers more than just stylish (albeit, mindless) blockbuster action? You’ll have to wait until this summer, when the big guns like The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Amazing Spider-Man all hit the scene.


Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance arrives in U.S. theaters (2D and 3D) on February 17th, 2012.

  1. Im down. Mindless or not I am there.

  2. Even if the story sucks, the action will be enough to give it ar least 3 stars…

  3. Its good that we can see the Crank style of film-making on this, never a fan of cage, but at least when he’s Ghost Rider, I can’t see him stupid looking face that to me always make me think of him not knowing what to do next… (enter Bush joke here)

    • Honestly it’s not his face I don’t like, it’s whatever thing is going on with his hair in the last few movies. Some kinda heinous beast.

  4. looks okay. I don’t like Nic as GR tho =/

  5. I’ll buy this after a week this comes out for a few dollaz.

  6. Dat evil laugh. Im sold

    • That laugh rocks. I also liked Mephisto’s laugh in the first film.

  7. that last scene was pretty crazy hah

  8. This will be a turn your mind off film, will be seeing it even tho I wish the will make a proper Ghost Rider film (the first was pretty ok).

  9. Completely retarded.

  10. I will not support the bastardization of a comic book icon just for kicks.
    They should have rebooted altogether.
    I’ll leave the garbage in the sewer with the vermin thank you.

  11. In the 3rd video his laugh at the end of the video sounds so stupid.

    • Just as stupid as a skeleton pissing fire. Without genitals.

  12. Im sorry im not one to be negative but this movie just looks terrible! Another completely unnecessary sequel much like crank 2 was!!

  13. I will see it, then bestow my knowledge upon the readers of ScreenRant.

  14. Come on guys deep dark depth of character from a guy who sold his soul to save someone he loved, kind of hard to play that.

    Plus I would rather have seen years where he was fighting the evil escaped creatures from hell, rather than trying to lift his curse which he chose to hold on too at the end of the last movie, right? Right.

    Just hope they explain why his skull is darker now and looks chipped in places.
