4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love the Ghost Rider Sept. 27 2007
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Even way back during my comic-collecting days, I never really crossed paths with Ghost Rider (I've read exactly one issue), and I only decided that I like Nicolas Cage after all about a year ago -- so I wasn't exactly waiting for this film (and what a lengthy wait it turned out to be) with baited breath. You know what, though? I really enjoyed this movie. OK, the first half hour is a little slow and boring, but once the actual Ghost Riding starts, the action makes up for the deficiencies in the storyline. I can't say the whole flaming skull thing looks like it could even possibly be real, but it's still a flaming skull, and that is, by definition, pretty darn cool. And we all know that you can't really go wrong with demon fighting.

If you know nothing about Ghost Rider, here's all you really need to know. As a teenager, Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) sold his soul to the devil (but not for greedy or selfish reasons) -- only to be totally screwed over by the evil-doer. Knowing that old Mephistopheles (Peter Fonda) could show up at any time to enforce his end of the deal, Blaze leaves the love of his life behind and heads out to lead a life of relative isolation. Following in his father's footsteps, he becomes a famous motorcycle daredevil, continually upping the danger ante in an effort to prove to himself that he, not Mephistopheles, is responsible for his success. Life goes on until the day he jumps the length of a football field (goalpost to goalpost, which would actually be 20 yards further than the 100 yards described in the film).

4.0 out of 5 stars a guy with a flaming skull! what's not to like? May 21 2009
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Classic B movie fare. Nicolas Cage (as Johnny Blaze)channels his inner Elvis in some of the moves and gestures (watch the way he points to the crowd). Eva Mendes proves she can sure fill out a dress and is excellent eye candy. Plus you get a flaming motorcycle ridden by a guy with a flaming skullhead! What's not to like?

Well, one thing is the typical Marvel Comic storyline which has the superhero all angst-ridden over his powers and predicament. Why can't Western superheroes not just be like Japanese superheroes--accept you have powers and start kicking evil butt?

Gratuitous Peter Fonda shows up as the devil and thankfully a gratuitous Sam Elliot shows up halfway through to explain the whole storyline.

The main flaw with this movie, though, is not enough Ghost Rider flaming skull action and too much Nic Cage and Eva Mendes attempting to act.

The extras are boring--two audio commentary tracks and a couple of making ofs. But the soundtrack rocks thanks to Aussie band Spiderbait and the Melbourne sets are tremendous.

All I can add is when is Ghost Rider 2 coming out and whomever gave this just one star needs a sense of humor. How can you not like the fact Johnny Blaze eats jelly beans out of a martini glass and is into monkey TV shows. This stuff is beyond classic on the intentional or unintentional comedy scale.

This will probably be the shortest review I've ever written because I'm laughing and applauding so hard--so uncontrollably, I can't quit shaking or still my hands long enough to type!

I know, I know! Ghost Rider (Full Screen) is a supernatural thriller and a decent one at that, so I'm not supposed to laugh. I assure you, I'm not laughing AT the movie, I'm ROTFLMAO with DELIGHT at the animation, graphics, and special effects. The fiery visuals lit my fire! Spontaneous combustion!

You see, I'm a graphic/animation/special effects freak; that's what turns me on!

I was as caught up in the plot of Ghost Rider (Full Screen) as I am with most movies, enjoying it in a normal way ... but when the great Nicolas Cage (motorcyclist Johnny Blaze) metamorphoses into the Ghost Rider--a flaming skull-headed monster--and his chopper lights up like a million candles, I loooooved it.

The scenes where Cage (Blaze) rides the highway ... body, head and cool chopper spitting fire as he roars along, literally incinerating everything in his path ... well, they're stupendous. Filmed on nights as black as Satan's soul, everything but Cage and his bike is stark dark, creating startling contrasts as the blazing bike and burning biker lick out at the darkness with searing tongues of hungry fire.

And wait till you see cowboy Sam Elliot, the first Ghost Rider, riding his flaming horse alongside Cage's fiery chopper. I've heard of burning rubber, but these two Ghost Riders torch that road, leaving fiery tracks and the skeletons of incinerated animals in their wake! Awesome!

By falcon
as far as comic book adaptations go,this is not a bad movie,i can't say
how accurate it is to its source material,but i didn't mind it.it's
basically about a young motorcycle stuntman named Johnny Blaze.as a
young man.johnny is tricked into selling his soul to the devil for
reasons revealed in the movie.years later,the devil calls upon his
services as "Ghost Rider" a flame skulled entity from the dark side who
is basically the devil's bounty hunter.i liked this movie quite a
bit,although it seemed a bit rushed.i think they could have fleshed it
out a bit more.but to be fair,there is some voice over narration in the
film,which does provide an overview of the whole Ghost Rider Legend.if
you're a fan of the comic,you probably know all you need to know.Nic
Cage,as the older Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider is well cast.he seems to
suit the role well and is believable(in the context of the movie).i
like the music.it went well with the movie.there is a lot of action in
the movie and some cgi,which is well done,but not groundbreaking or
anything.(although Ghost Rider's flaming skull was kinda cool)The
beautiful and talented Eva Mendes plays the love interest,but her
screen time is far too short.her character should have had more to
do.she is very charismatic,so the scenes she was in left me wanting
more.oh, well,hopefully her character will play a larger role in the
sequel.as for the movie itself,my friend and i had free passes,so i
can't really complain.it is a fun movie to watch,but doesn't linger
long after viewing.i will go see the sequel when it comes out,as i
believe it will probably improve on this one. 4/5
