The Caretaker/Carter Slade Ghost Rider character is a tribute to the original Marvel Comics Ghost Rider, now called The Phantom Rider to avoid confusion. However, the character in the comics is a regular human who wears a white costume and rides a white painted horse, both covered with phosphorous for a glowing effect. See more »
(at around 1h 30 mins) In the battle with Blackheart Johnny is walking while firing his gun from the hip. There is no recoil from the shot. If the shell had a projectile in it, there would be definite recoil, but even with blanks, there will be minimal movement afterwards. 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. Story goes that every generation has one. Some damned soul, cursed to ride the earth, collecting on the Devil's deals. Many years ago, a Ghost Rider was sent to the village of San Venganza, to fetch a contract worth 1000 evil souls. But that contract was so powerful, he knew he could never let the Devil ...

A fantastic movie to just sit back and enjoy
If you like movies that just entertain you and blow you away but doesn't has that much of a plot, Ghost rider is the best choice. Although IMO the plot was decent, a man sells his soul to the devil to save his father and is forced to work for the devil to take down demons. The special effects are fantastic, you'll be blown away when he turns into Ghost rider the first time. Although there could have been some more action, but the action was intense and wonderful. This move is great on a Friday or Saturday night. But don't see this movie on a Sunday, wanting a dramatic emotional movie like spider man. This is a movie to entertain, not make you fall in love with. So just sit back and enjoy one of the greatest Marvel movies ever
