Flashback: Ghost Rider (2007)
With Ghost Rider driving around on Agents of Shield, let’s take a look back, when 10 years ago, we saw the one and only Nicolas Cage drive the flaming motorcycle, wearing the flaming skull of the Ghost Rider. Johnny Blaze was finally a reality and as many had wanted to see this creature of vengeance onscreen for years. Written and directed by Daredevil’s Mark Steven Johnson, the film also starred Eva Mendes and Peter Fonda as Mephistopheles, or Mephisto. The Devil makes a deal with Johnny Blaze, getting his soul in return for saving his dad from cancer, which he does but then he dies in a motorcycle accident the next day. Years later, Mephistopheles returns to get the ghost rider to help him get back 1000 souls before some rogue devil/angels do. Sam Elliot shows up as the previous Ghost Rider to impart nuggets of wisdom and Ghost Rider keeps his power and saves the day in the end. The film is a quite a bit of a letdown, less interested in creating a scary or creepy tone, more interested in making all these demonic characters play out the stale superhero archetypes that typical scripts seemed to stamp out from time to time. Nic Cage is always an entertaining actor to watch, but besides a few quirks and a fun transformation, this by the numbers plot drags the rider and the rest of down for the count. Lets talk Ghost Rider.
