About the Movie
Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) was only a teenaged stunt biker when he sold his soul to the devil (Peter Fonda). Years later, Johnny is a world renowned daredevil by day, but at night, he becomes the Ghost Rider of Marvel Comics legend. The devil's bounty hunter, he is charged with finding evil souls on earth and bringing them to hell. But when a twist of fate brings Johnny's long-lost love (Eva Mendes) back into his life, Johnny realizes he just might have a second chance at happiness...if he can beat the devil and win back his soul. To do so he'll have to defeat Blackheart (Wes Bentley), the devil's nemesis and wayward son, whose plot to take over his father's realm will bring hell on earth-unless Ghost Rider can stop him.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Is the world ready for a flaming Nicolas Cage?
Rotten: So much flatter than it was on the comic-book page.
Rotten: The blank, frenetic exhaustion of the final reel acts like a kid who tries to snap out of a candy-binge coma by snorting lines of Pixy Stix.
Rotten: Rarely in Hollywood have so many labored so hard with so much time and such financial resources to fill a movie screen with as vast an array of spiritual gibberish, literary poppycock and pure flummery as Mark Steven Johnson's Ghost Rider.
"...despite it's horrible critic reviews..."
GhostRider--I'll agree that it definitely wasn't the best Marvel Comics movie ever made, but it deserves some credit... GhostRider, despite it's horrible critic reviews, is a pretty good movie. It's not the big-screen epic they make it out to be (the advertisers), but it's filled with B-Monster movie fun. Sure, the plot is pretty dumb, but there's a lot to love about GhostRider. First of all, the fast-motion camera shots are neat and old-school adding to the fun Second-the pop-out horror scenes are scary but add to the experience! Third-the movie's overall feel and look, while dark, is perfect for any guys night. It's not good, it's just fun! And that's what we go to the movies for anyway, right? To have a good time! No, GhostRider doesn't have the epic story of Spider-Man, or the big-name special effects like X-Men, but it sure gives you a good time! In fact, the first movie I put on my Ipod when I got my DVD to Ipod converter was GhostRider. Rent the movie, and hold on!
I did not know what to excpect, but this movie was great. The movie's bad guys were really cool. Nicholas Cage made a great Ghost Rider.The special effects were awesome to watch. I am also really glad this is a buy and not a rent. Amazing Movie! FIRST TO REVIEW!
why all the bad reviews ??
seriously, why did 'jumper' get all great reviews when it was a cruddy movie, but this get so many poor reviews and it's one of the best action movies out there? do people not like the main actor or something? it has great special effects, a moving plot line with plenty of explanation, and the 'romance' seems just right. i loved how broody the main character was. seriously folks, watch with an open mind and disregard all of the one star reviews. i had to give it a lot of stars to offset the poor reviews because i think this is a movie well worth watching and i see tons of movies every year; every chance i have extra cash to go to the theater. this one is well worth it.
