26 Capes Later: Day nineteen

Movie: Ghost Rider
Release Date: 2007
Runtime: 114 minutes
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Action
Synopsis: "When a motorcycle-riding stuntman offers his soul to Mephistopheles in order to save the life of the one he loves most, he is forced to play host to a powerful supernatural entity whose flaming skull visage strikes fear into the heart of his enemies in this feature-film version of the long-running comic series. By day, Johnny Blaze (actor and comic-book devotee Nicolas Cage) is one of the world's best-known stuntmen, but when the sun goes down and he is in the presence of evil, the death-defying daredevil bursts into flames to become the indestructible, motorcycle-riding antihero known to the world as the Ghost Rider."

When I first heard about the Ghost Rider movie I was a bit skeptical, especially when I realized that Nicholas Cage would be playing Ghost Rider. But turns out I had nothing to fear, because he did an excellent job playing Johnny Blaze.

His obsession with monkeys and the Carpenters was kind of funny in an odd way. His bike was definitely cool. Although the one thing that doesn’t make sense would have to be the magic eight ball that Roxanne looked out while she was waiting Johnny to show up for their date.
I think my favorite scene would have to be the final ride with Carter Slade his predecessor and the flaming horse.
On a whole this movie was really awesome from beginning to end.
