Ghost Rider is crazy in this film, he was supposed to seem an act random and insane, attacking his victims not just fiscally but also mentally.
I loved it, the only thing I would change would be a better super powered villain and more Ghost Rider scenes.
Yeah I guess that makes senese. I haven't read too much Ghost Rider, mainly Essential Collection Vol. 2 I picked up from the Flea Market last year. I suppose old Ghostie is a bit of a vandal, and enjoyed tormenting his foes. Maybe when I see it again on DVD someday I'll pick out some of the nuances in his character I missed the first time out. He did seem a little underpowered in the opening fight, but I guess getting hit by a few grenade rounds'll knock anyone sensless.
Oh, and I feel dumb. I didn't realize the kid was Dan Ketch, as I found out in review I saw from on of my subcriptions on Youtube. The reviewer also said they cut a sword fighting scene with Christophter Lambert. His presence in the film makes more sense now.
Last thing, the Blue Ghost Rider. Is it a thing in the comics now? I know the new Marvel Legends is blue, so maybe it is.
I believe the blue Rider is a thing in the comics, I've seen a few covers and pics with it, but haven't gotten around to reading them, the book was cancelled over here just after they revealed he was an Angel. The current Ghost Rider is a woman though I believe.
Thing with the grenades though, in the next fight they hit him with rockets which I believe are more powerful than grenades, so it looks like a bit of a continuity error.
It's also pretty difficult to really nail the Ghost Rider character, almost every writer writes him differently, I#ve read stories in which he's a mute, a simpleton with a heart of gold, an emo, a crazy guy and a violent blood thirsty ass hole.
