Johnny Blaze, a man who made a deal with the Devil who called himself Mephistopheles at the time (now Roarke), is on the run trying to make sure no-one is harmed by his alter ego, The Ghost Rider. He is approached by a Monk named Moreau who tells him that he can help be him free of the Rider, but first, he needs Johnny's help to protect a boy, whom Roarke has plans for, to help him take human form.

In the sequence where Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) is explaining the deal with the devil the film's directors are pictured shaking hands, while one of them is on fire. This mirroring the cover to 'Pink Floyd''s album "Wish You Were Here." See more »
When Moreau has the tires on his bike shot out and falls off the cliff, he shoots a P90 at the car, with the ejected rounds flying out of the side of the gun. In reality, the rounds eject out of the bottom of the gun, not the side. See more »
The ghost rider has the potential to be one of the coolest and most successful franchises today,Ghost rider is so iconic and so much can be done with him,the problem is morons are making the films.
The film has several styles that never really gell,It tries humor but fails,Halfway though the movie it literally starts making fun of itself..and its not funny.I felt like they were saying haha we got your money.
The over used Prophecy child theme,The fish eye 1970's lens used to death and poor effect..the home computer cgi..
If you rent this one day in redbox you'll want your dollar back,If i ever see the director I'll ask for my money back and shame him for taking something that could be so cool and just dropping the ball,he should be banned from making films for 2 years for this one.
I hope one day someone with imagination and talent takes on a ghost rider film and finally does it justice.
