'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' Reviews Suggest It's Worth Seeing ... Really? (VIDEO)

Nicolas Cage in 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance'

Every time I've seen a commercial for the second Ghost Rider movie, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, I literally think to myself, What the hell is Nicolas Cage doing? Isn't this the same striking screenwriter from Leaving Las Vegas? What's he doing playing some wacked out skeleton riding a motorcycle? Sigh. Whether or not I understand what's going on here, the movie hits theaters nationwide today.

Directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance follows Cage's character Johnny Blaze (the ghost rider) as he teams up with a group of rebel monks to save a young boy from the devil. 

... I have no words. The critics do, though. Check out the Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance reviews, here:

James O'Brien, Daily Mail:

While Ghost Rider 2 is about as subtle as a sledgehammer and positively drenched in pyrotechnics and car chases, it's also rather fun and, like all the best comic books, a little cleverer than first impressions suggest.

William Goss, Film.com:

An aggressively mediocre improvement on the first film.

John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter:

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance nudges its obscure hero's mythology forward a bit without seeming to care much how it gets there.

Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy:

Nicolas Cage's return to the blazing bike saddle is a distinct improvement on its dire predecessor, although that is hardly a blistering recommendation of its quality.

I guess if it's an improvement on the first film, it could be worth seeing, right? I'll leave that big decision up to you. Check out the Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance trailer, here:
