No. It started as a comic, not a comic book though.

Just Ghost Rider was my favorite all while iw as growing up. So many years of wanting a ghost rider movie as a child, so many times i played with ghost rider action figures, making up my own movies. And finalyl when it comes out... I get.. Nicholas Cage.. and some lame dude playing Blackheart.

and no fight scenes. every fight starts. ends with one blow from GR. no action. and the 'bad to the bones' song with the movie just made me cringe.

but thats jsut my opinion... i aint gon hate if u like it.

There are not many good comic movies, honestly only two that are REALLY good.

Worst: Elektra (by FAR)

Best:Sin City, Dark Knight

I have to state that I do not like Batman Begins and the Spider Man movies. Green Goblin looked so cheap... I agree with Pix that the old Batman movies were quite interesting but not because of Keaton but of the villains (Pfeifer, DeVito and Nicholson did an AWESOME job).

The one I am really looking forward to is the new Punisher. From what I have seen that one could be good.

Ugh, don't remind me of the Hulk. The second movie was better than the first one but it was still horrible. Why put any comic into movie form? For those that can't read?
