In order to save his dying father, young stunt cyclist Johnny Blaze sells his soul to Mephistopheles and sadly parts from the pure-hearted Roxanne Simpson, the love of his life. Years later, Johnny's path crosses again with Roxanne, now a gogetting reporter, and also with Mephistopheles, who offers to release Johnny's soul if Johnny becomes the fabled, fiery Ghost Rider.

nicolas cage was not bad but not very good either. the script was horrible so i dont blame him. as a fan of the comic i noticed they ran the two original stories together to make one. for a horror action film the scariest character was the hero and his foe was satan! or mephistopheles. who by the way was a human in an over coat. the action was few and far in between. the special effects were awesome though. i dont necessarily recommend it but wouldnt say no to watching it either. i could use the nap
I work in a movie theatre, and alot of people came to see Ghost Rider, and they left either pumped or dissapointed. I saw the film and thought the story line was great and the humor even funnie, but I hated the fact that almost 80% of the film was computer animated. Nicolas Cage is a great actor, and I love his movies, but this film barely makes the great Nicolas Cage movie catagory.
Another movie from Nicolas Cage. Unlike his other movies this is a little different or I rather say not to the mark. Cage acting is good but the movie don't have that many action as expected from an action movie. The thing that got my attention was the burning skeleton head. What were they thinking.... Over all it is an average movie. For Nicolas cage fans it might be a treat for rest of us ,Its just a movie.
If you have nothing else to do , sure go ahead and watch this movie.
With high spectacular special effects, that is all the producers of Ghost Rider we're thinking. In a movie, better then Daredevil, but worse then Spider-man, and even Fantastic Four, Nicholas Cage plays Johnny Blaze, who is a bike stuntsperson who follows in his fathers footsteps. The film starts with a werid introduction, about former ghost riders, and a contract that the devil wanted, which I did not follow at all, maybee if I actually read the comic books? Anyways, his father has cancer, so in a depesrate plea, he makes a deal with the devil, that he soulfully regrets doing, to save his father. (producers should have cast his younger self better, cause he looks nothing like nicholas cage). Years later, he is preforming his most daring stunt ever, jumping over six helicopters, in a football stadium with thousands of screaming fans. Soon, the devil repears, and he must be the rider, as the trailer gave away. He soon must fight the devil jr., and when they introduce this villian, they attempt a cheap scare, which doesn't work, at all. Not even, a jump from someone attending in the audience, at the screening. The movie leads to a lame fight at the end, and doesn't deserve any sequels, as there is really no one more larger to fight then the devil himself. I would personally give this a thumbs down, and the two stars are for the effects.
