Revealing mistake: In the day following the Rider's first ride, Cage shows up at the street that has been burned down the center. A person very close to the beginning of that scene walks on the broken up rocks and it moves as if it were a pad or a sponge. It wasn't a rock moving because the street moves with the rock. It happens a couple of times during that scene.

Revealing mistake: After the Ghost Rider escapes from jail, he is shown pulling his chain whip off of his bike and wrapping it around his torso. As he lifts his leg to mount the bike, the section of chain near his right hip can be seen to pass through his jacket, revealing that it is a CGI chain, not a real one.

Continuity mistake: In the scene near the beginning when Johnny Blaze falls from his bike and raises to look at Mephistopheles, when he lowers his cane to the ground it lands to the right of his foot yet when it flips to a frontal shot the cane is in the centre of his body with no time to move the cane.

Character mistake: When Johnny Blaze plans on jumping the football field he says he is jumping field goal to field goal. The movie says multiple times he is jumping 300 feet. End zone to end zone is 300 feet. Field goal post to field goal post is 360 feet.

Continuity mistake: Since Johnny is unable to move while on his motorcycle, the zippers to his jacket sleeves are down, but when he reaches the train yard they are now up. Also, before the bike drives off, Johnny's feet are attached to the sides of his bike. When the rear tire starts spinning, his feet are now planted firmly on the ground but in the next scene, when the bike drives off, his feet are now back in their original position.

Visible crew/equipment: After Johnny completes the helicopter stunt he chases the TV van down the highway. You can see the camera and crew reflected on the van sides.

Continuity mistake: In the movie where Cage is making the jump over the semi-trucks he crashes. You'll see that he skids up against the wall and hits his head. In the next shot you see that he is laying on the ground about a foot away from the wall when his crew shows up to help him.

Character mistake: After Nicholas Cage jumps the line of trucks and lands on his head, his team race over and immediately pull off his crash helmet to see if he's OK. Anyone with first aid training or experience of crash victims would know to leave a crash helmet in place, as it could cause further spinal injury to pull it off. The helmet should only be removed if the victim is not breathing, and in other cases should be left in place with just the chin strap undone.

Continuity mistake: As he's being questioned about the graveyard, the railroad caretaker's right arm goes from up about breast height, to lowered by his side and back quickly.

Movie Nut

Visible crew/equipment: As Mephistopheles talks to Blaze, the camera pans around the bike. As it does, it's reflected in the chrome control box on the right handle bar.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: As Johny Blaze stumbles down the warehouse, his boots are on fire. When the camera pulls upward to drop right back down on his face, they are not. (00:41:40)

Johnny Blaze: I'm fine. I feel like my skull is on fire, but I'm good.

More quotes from Ghost Rider

Trivia: When Johnny Blaze is on the roof as the Ghost Rider, he throws the chain at the helicopter, and pulls it towards him in a straight line. When he does this, he says "Come here...you're pissing me off." This is a reference to the character Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat game. Scorpion throws a harpoon the same way in the game, and says "get over here" when he does so. Also, Scorpion's finishing move in the game shows him removing his mask to reveal a flaming skull head, just like Ghost Rider.

More trivia for Ghost Rider

Answer: The movie doesn't show how long the effects of the Penance Stare last. I have Morbius #1, in which Ghost Rider uses his Penance Stare on Morbius, who recovers from it relatively quickly. I don't know definitively because I haven't read very many Ghost Rider comics, but the duration of the effects could vary depending on how much remorse the person already felt for their past sins, or how much their own super powers allow them to recover from it. From what I understand, the Penance Stare doesn't work on the Punisher, as he feels no remorse for the people he's killed. It also had no effect on Deadpool, as his greatest victim is himself and it actually caused Ghost Rider to revert to his human form when he tried it on Deadpool.

Answer: It depends on the person. The penance stare is used to torture the victim into reliving every bit of mean and sinful behaviour in their life time. So if the victim is older and committed more sinful acts, it will last longer than say a 20 year old who hasn't committed that many acts.
