Meanwhile Ray subdues Nadya, but the Ghost Rider finds them and fights against Ray's gang. However, Ray uses a powerful weapon against the Ghost Rider and succeeds in abducting Danny. When Johnny Blaze awakes in the hospital, he joins to Nadya and Moreau to save Danny from Roarke and Ray.
"Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" is an underrated and entertaining sequel of the 2007 film. The story is engaging, the acting is decent and the special effects are great. What else could a viewer expect from The Ghost Rider? My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Motoqueiro Fantasma: Espírito de Vingança" ("Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance")
