Ghost Rider Review


The grounds right behind Wat Mongkhon Bophit in Ayutthaya, Thailand. Part of the Ayutthaya Series in the Thailand Chronicles.

I didn’t know what to expect when I started watching this movie; probably not a lot. But still, Marvel movies can be fun.

The Ghost Rider is the bounty hunter of the devil, chasing the souls that have escaped hell. The Ghost Rider inhabits a new person every generation. In this generation, Johnny Blaze made a deal with the devil to save his dad from cancer. But what the devil gives, the devil takes away, in his twisted fashion. His father dies anyway.

So Johnny leaves his girlfriend and everything he knows and becomes a stunt driver. The devil tells him that he should run away from everything until he calls for him. Years later, the devil calls and the Ghost Rider comes back.

The rest of the storyline isn’t that great. It revolves around some contract that the devil needs and his son Blackheart desires.

In the end of the movie, the Ghost Rider becomes the spirit of vengeance and spites the devil.

I liked seeing all of the motorcycles in this movie. Other than that, I was surprised that Nicolas Cage had a 6 pack. I wonder if it was added by special effects or if it was real. My wife thinks it’s fake. There is nothing really to say, it’s a kind of brain candy that once consumed, it just goes away.

It was better than Daredevil and Elektra (not to mention The Punisher), not as good as Fantastic Four and no way near Spiderman, which is still the best Marvel movie franchise out there.

    Everybody here keeps on telling me that the movie was either great or bad. Most of it from a relative who saw the movie, but she hasn’t grown on Marvel like I have. I’ll have to wait for the DVD to come out 🙂

    Yeah, it’s definitely a rental.
