The Spirit

5 Points

Viewer Rating:Brian has rated The Spirit rating: 3 Star

The Spirit, which was written and directed by comic book legend Frank Miller, is exactly what one would expect from the trailers. It is a highly visual film done in the style of classic comic books, from its unique visuals to its over the top dialogue. Everything about this film is implausible, but that is where it has all of its fun; only in a film like this will you find so many grandiose fight sequences and good-looking women. The film never does take itself that seriously, in fact it is at many times very funny, and in the way in which it was intended to be. I have the feeling that many filmgoers will simply not get this film upon viewing, but for those who do, they will find themselves transformed once more into the 12 year old comic book nerd that they once were. To put it in simpler terms, if you are a die-hard comic fanatic, such as myself, you will enjoy the Spirit, but if you aren't, then I suggest you wait for this film on DVD. I give the Spirit an entertaining 6 out of 10!

Painful to Behold - Shari

Why does Samuel L Jackson seem to delight in making appalling films? Snakes on a Plane, Lakeview Terrace, and now this mess of a production. This film feels like a minor chapter from Sin City which... MORE
