But the devil deceives him, and Barton dies in a motorcycle accident during an exhibition. Johnny leaves the carnival, his town, his friends and his girlfriend Roxanne. Years later Johnny Blaze becomes a famous motorcyclist, who risks his life in his shows, and he meets Roxanne again, now a TV reporter.

When Johnny Blaze falls while trying to land he slides up and hits his back against a wall. In the next shot he is seen lying on his back several feet away with obvious drag marks made by his helmet when some crew member dragged him away from the wall. See more »
It's said that the West was built on legends. Tall tales that help us make sense of things too great or too terrifying to believe. This is the legend of the Ghost Rider.

The Marvel logo features comic-book images of the Ghost Rider in its pages; after it fully forms it blazes briefly, then turns metallic and grows spikes, replicating the Ghost Rider's transformation. See more »
Of course one must start out to state how hard it truly is to portray a comic super hero on film. to even think that one would attempt to put together a motion picture such as ghost rider would seem to be preposterous. I will gladly say that i was very pleased with the outcome of this motion picture. i was a little worried at first that the graphics would not be up to par. but i do believe that they looked pretty good. i think the director portrayed a great vision of the ghost rider and Nicolas cage did an outstanding job in playing him. over all i rate this movie a good 9.5. i look forward to the future. i believe this film has great sequel potential.
