Now grown up, Johnny is a stunt artist himself as he waits for Mephistopheles to call upon to do his dirty work. That day is about to come when Mephistopheles' son Blackheart escapes with four demons to find the legendary Contract of San Venganza, now as Ghost Rider he's the only one who can stop Blackheart and his demonic goons.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

What I can see they stay fateful to the comic, the effects are incredible, the cast does a great job. The story works and it's pretty cool. I could have done without that whole good cop bad cop thing. 9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, this is a near perfect adaptation, unlike some of the other Marvel movies in the past this has no serious re-writes and I'm loving it. It's intense without losing the fun factor. 9 STARS as well.
