YMMV: Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
  • Anti-Climax Boss: Roarke at the end of the film. Justified by his Power Degeneration.
  • Contested Sequel: Either the movie was a improvement of the previous movie or the worst of the two films.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Moreau.
    • If you're not a fan of the Narm Charm, it goes extra for Nadya as well. Her entire story is perhaps the only good thing about the film.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Idris Elba playing a guardian warrior monk.
    • Why is the Rider so incredibly psychotic in the film? Johnny's been keeping him locked away. He hasn't had any fun in a long time, and suddenly he's been given carte blanche to do whatever it takes to find Danny. Let the slaughter begin!
      • Could also explain why Johnny himself acts so absolutely friggin' nuts through the whole movie, and actually seems to calm down during the period when he's de-powered. It's repeatedly said that the fallen angel that inhabits him is literally insane.
    • The Rider's line in the first trailer released on-line also shows that in addition to being completely out there in terms of his brutality, he also has a disturbed sense of humor when he kills someone.
      Ghost Rider: Roadkill.
  • Narm Charm: The Movie.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Ghost Rider has been turned into a complete psychopath. His movements, rather than being methodical and stern like you'd expect, are erratic and generally unhinged. He doesn't speak much, either. He just laughs.
