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 »
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.

I went to see this film in the process of my work and so didn't pay and was just able to sit back and enjoy it for what it was.
I would probably not have paid to see this film anyway because it just did not look like something that i would be into, however, i am glad i have seen it and i really did enjoy most of it.
Sure, some parts just made me want to get up and leave, and the film as a whole seemed to be carried by the fact that cage was in it(i am sure it would have been a straight to DVD/video if he had not been) but the acting was of a good standard, it had comic undulations that probably only appeared to those with shall we say a more 'eccentric' attitude to comedy, and it had some moments that made you twitch a little in your seat.
Funny, scary, pathetic, bad can all be used to describe this film, and it will probably be slated for all its worth.
All i have left to say is this:
To all the dads out there, get your kids, take them to see this film. They will enjoy it for its scares and fantasy, you Will enjoy the fact that Raquel Alessi and Eva Mendes are in it. Just do it!
