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 »
Engine sounds vary throughout the movie and are frequently mismatched with the engine configuration from the vehicle they're meant to portray (e.g. an inline four-cylinder sound on a twin-cylinder bike, and sporadic narrow-angle twin sounds on Blaze's balanced V4 engine). See more »
You wanted to know why I look this way. Think of... a flamethrower.
[scene of Ghost Rider urinating fire]
Is that funny? Okay. A flamethrower made of papier-mâché. All that power. But try to use it, you burn up. This body I'm living in, it's weak, human. It's dying. It was never made to things that I can do. But you... you're only part human. You have all the power that I have inside of you. Like father, like son.

Having grown up with many of the comic book super heroes, I have been delighted to see so many of them becoming movies now, and look forward to each one. The whole Marvel series has been enjoyable for the most part. Ghost Rider (both of them) have been total disappointments.
The first Ghost Rider was poor, so I figured this one could only go up. Wow, was I wrong! The acting and plot in this one was SO poor, I was ready to walk out within 10 minutes. I decided to be fair...maybe things would improve. Well, I'll never get that hour and a half of my life back again.
I've seen some pretty cheesy B movies before. They can even be fun But I expect the quality of these to be so much more. It wasn't, and there was nothing fun about it. This one will never reach the acclaim it could have....it will fittingly go down in flames as nothing more than a poorly done B movie.
I've seen better acting out of most middle school and high school productions! Even the special affects were substandard for a movie of this type.
Don't waste your time with this one. Don't even bother with buying a DVD when they come out. Your money is worth more than seeing this movie even once.
