QUICK TAKE:
Action: A cursed motorcycle rider attempts to regain his humanity by saving the Devil's son from being possessed by his father.
PLOT:
Johnny Blaze (NICOLAS CAGE) has gone into seclusion in Eastern Europe to try and keep his demonic alter ego, the Ghost Rider, in check. He made a deal with Roarke (CIARAN HINDS), the Devil incarnate, years earlier to save his dying father's life and has become a hunter of wicked souls ever since. He wants the curse lifted. He's about to get his chance.

Twelve years earlier, a gypsy named Nadya (VIOLANTE PLACIDO) also made a deal with Roarke to spare her life in return for carrying his son. That boy, Danny (FERGUS RIORDAN), is now about to reach 13 and Roarke wants out of his aging, failing body and into the body of the boy. She goes on the run and seeks the protection of church zealots who are helpless in protecting them from the forces of darkness.

Pursued by a former boyfriend/mercenary named Carrigan (JOHNNY WHITWORTH) and his small army of gun-toting henchmen, Nadya eventually hooks up with holy man Moreau (IDRIS ELBA) who knows that their only chance is to enlist the aid of Ghost Rider. Moreau promises to lift the Rider's curse if he will help. But Roarke has given Carrigan dark powers to combat the Rider, and a final confrontation for the fate of the world is inevitable.

    I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

    I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

    I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

    Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
