There are two references to Vlad the Impaler, one of the devil's personas and on the side of the tow truck. Vlad inspired the book "Dracula" and subsequently the Marvel Comics supervillain, who is often a foe to Ghost Rider. See more »

Such a promising subject such a disappointment
19 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
