Stupid Ugly Violent
I wouldn't have watched more than the first few minutes if I'd known I was getting a new DVD today.Tags: dvd
If you have a chance to see The Spirit, give it a miss. It's just as stupid, just as ugly and just as violent. And the acting is, if anything, worse.

While 300 lets you know up front that it's going to be camp, sexist, violent and only marginally worth watching as an exercise in whacked out film-making, Sin City was sad and a waste of talents, not worth the five or six minutes where real emotions slipped past the guards and got on screen. I haven't seen The Spirit, and I'd stay away from it, even if I was paid to go see it. The look of the ads proved to me that the writers and creators were, essentially, spitting on the true spirit of Will Eisner's creation.
Really, if I'd twigged to "The Spirit" being another Frank Miller travesty, I'd have stayed far, far, FAR away
