    That's good stuff, man. I couldn't agree more. Even so, I believe their biggest problem is coming up with a plausible plot and antagonist. These supernatural antagonists are kinda fuckin’ lame. The antagonist should be somebody who has been affected by Ghost Rider in some way. Maybe the antagonist's boyfriend/girlfriend was a sinner and got axed by Ghost Rider, I don't know. Either way, the incident should motivate the antagonist to find out who Ghost Rider is and kill him and whoever is around him. And yeah, the antagonist should be smart enough to exploit Ghost Rider's weaknesses, which is something I found very lacking in the movie. Nothing is worse than a weak antagonist. See Quantum of Solace.

    My 2 cents.

    Thanks for the review and chance to read the script. I agree on some points, but this script by itself without changes would’ve been better than either of the movies we ended up getting. I like a complex story and Blaze is a great character. Also, he’s an anti-hero and his being a thief and punk of a kid are good ways to show that he has something coming to him that isn’t favorable. This script kept me reading and I hope they do something more with it some day b/c with a few bad words taken out and a few lame lines edited out, this could be an awesome movie. David Goyer is a truly great writer IMO. Nice review.
