| While not the best adaptation of a comic book (graphic novel if you prefer) to the screen...
I remember watching this film the first time and thinking it was just a lot of special effects without a lot of plot. Then I watched it a second time, and started to realize you have to really pay attention to the details to get the story. While not the best adaptation of a comic book (graphic novel if you prefer) to the screen, the special effects are awesome and the photography is Oscar worthy. Cage is Cage, that stoic actor who seems somehow devoid of emotion in most of his films. Mendez is hot, goes without saying, and equals Cage's level of emotion. Sam Elliot and Peter Fonda are the saving graces of the film, both adding a dimension of emotion lacking in the main characters. The prelude scenes of young Johnny and Roxanne are somewhat necessary, but could have been trimmed down to include more footage of the Ghost Rider and his missions. I haven't seen the newest film, just released at this writing, but hopefully the characters have been "fleshed out" and the plot concentrates more on the present than the past. With Cage being the only holdover for the new movie, perhaps the new directors can up the game a bit. The original film is rated PG-13 for violence and language, but nothing the teens haven't seen in their video games. Collectible? If you are a Marvel fan like I am, probably. As as classic film? No way. But entertaining.

Trivia

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.


Quotes

Caretaker: 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.


Goofs

When the adult Johnny Blaze approaches his motorcycle, which is running and revving by itself, he mounts it and his hands are shown stuck to the handlebars, and his left foot (at least) stuck to the footrest. However, after the confrontation with Mephistopheles, as the bike takes off on its own the camera moves to a rear shot, and both of Johnny's feet are on the ground. Then it begins to move and both feet are on the footrests again.


Crazy Credits

The Marvel Comics logo features comic-book images of the Ghost Rider in its pages; after it fully forms it blazes briefly, then turns metallic and grows spikes, replicating the Ghost Rider's transformation.


Alternate Versions

The original UK cinema version was pre-edited by the distributors to reduce shots of Johnny's face disintegrating into the Ghost Rider during his initial transformation in order for the film to receive a 12A cinema certificate. The DVD was upgraded to a 15 certificate and is fully uncut.
