When the motorcyclist Johnny Blaze finds that his father Barton Blaze has a terminal cancer, he accepts a pact with the Mephistopheles, giving his soul for the health of his beloved father. 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.

Trivia

In the scene where Blackheart goes to the saloon and a biker stops him at the door, you can see the numbers 666 on the left of his jacket. 666 has no Biblical reference. The letter F is the sixth letter of the alphabet. 666 = FFF = Filthy Few Forever. This was first used by the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club to indicate a distinguished member of the club. The biker at the door says that the saloon is only for Angels, another reference to the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. See more »

Goofs

When Blaze Sr. is crashing, in the rear view you see him clear the launch ramp and start to fall to the side and off of his bike, both still well within the flaming hoop. When Johnny rushes in and sees the aftermath the hoop is severely warped at the top and a piece of it can be seen at the side of the ramp. The bike is seen further down the ramp from Blaze Sr. and couldn't possibly have done that kind of damage. See more »

Caretaker: [voiceover] 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.

Nicholas Cage's head skinned and on fire! A must see!
28 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

The idea to do a film of Ghost Rider actually came after Nicholas Cage had his head skinned and his skull set on fire by critics, as a punishment for Knowing. The scenes where Johnny Blaze apparently has Cage's old facial features are the only CGI effects in the entire film.

Seriously though, if you like Marvel comics, and/or superhero films it's a great romp, that doesn't waste a character that could so easily have been wasted by the Hollywood machine. Sure there's a few clichéd set pieces, but there aren't many superhero movies (or Nicholas Cage movies) that don't have them, and fans of the Ghost Rider comics will see all the scenes and set pieces they'll be hankering to see done in a movie.
