Stick with Sin City

"She is the love of my life. And I am her spirit."

Prior to helming The Spirit, a screen adaptation of Will Eisner's comic book series, Frank Miller had scripted the woeful RoboCop III and had co-directed the extraordinary Sin City (with Robert Rodriguez). Merely a few minutes into The Spirit, it's agonisingly clear who the real cinematic talent behind Sin City was. Miller (himself ... read more

A disappointing movie

When I first heard about this flick, I was rather excited since I really loved 'Sin City' but later on I heard all the lukewarm critics so I wasn't dying anymore to watch it but still, I thought I should give it a shot. And indeed, the end result is rather disappointing. First of all, the movie has some rather visually impressive sequences but then, some other scenes just looked downright embarass... read more

"15th of December, Digibox Tässä on malliesimerkki siitä, miten kukaan ei ole seppä syntyessään, tässä tapauksessa todistettiin se, että Frank Milleristä ei ole ohjaajaksi. The Spirit on alusta loppuun ripuloitu tekele, joka matkii Sin Cityä orjallisesti ja toivoo, että kokonaisuus saa jotain merkittävää aikaiseksi. Pelkkä silmiä hivelevä ulkokuori ei riitä, sillä Sin Cityn nähneille tämä ei tarjoa mitään uutta. Hyvien näyttelijöiden uhraaminen moisen roskan takia on h"

Failed movie franchises part 2 (113 movies items)

" Note: The Spirit is a pretty cool character, but this movie was terrible. Most comic book movies made after Spider-Man, try to start a franchise and they failed. The movie was both a commercial and critical failure, so thank god that happen. The Spirit is one of the wortst movies I have ever seen and I'm glad that no sequel was made! "

Worst Movies I saw in Theaters (60 movies items)

" I walked out the 15 minutes before it was over. I hated how silly and over the top that this movie was. Nothing in the movie made sense, I found it even worst then Batman & Robin (1997). It made so angry that I spend a free movie pass to see this movie while I could have seen something much better. "

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E7 - July 2012 (27 movies items)

" Considering the general ratings for the film you would have thought that they had re-released "Crow II" or "Son of the Mask" under a different title. Thankfully, that is not the case. This isn't a horrible film nor is it a great film. There are a few moments that were just a bit too "Tom and Jerry" cartoon silly. The other problem is that for a film like this to work everyone needs to bring their A-Game to the film. That wasn't always the case. Also, Scarlett Johansson's jaded boredom plays o"

"2 - Eva Mendes - Sand Sarif Throwing what love I have for a super crappy superhero film to a character who may or may not be properly defined as a superheroine. Eva Mendes had been growing on me for years but it was in THE SPIRIT as Sand Sarif where I finally agreed to never argue internally about whether or not I love her. She saved that movie from being an exhausting, gruesome experience for me. "

" Front-runner for most misunderstood film of its decade. Yes, I'm serious. This movie is 10x more fun and 10x smarter than most any critic gave it credit for upon its release. Not only is this movie fresh and unpredictable and exciting in its own right, but it will get appreciative viewers excited about film itself -or genre films, anyway. How do I describe it? Okay. Here's the thing. If you tell me that you enjoy Film Noir and then you tell me that you enjoy the old Batman serials and then"

50 Most Hated Movies Ever Made (51 movies items)

"33. The Spirit (2008) The Movie: Having cut his teeth in movies with Sin City, comic book legend Frank Miller had a go at one of his key influences, Will Eisner's 1940s newspaper strip. Why It Was Hated: The Miller-ised movie brought kinky costumes and grotesque black comedy to the fore, but lacked the panache that a true filmmaker might have brought. Typical Online Review: "Thought this might be good from the previews. Boy was I wrong! Honestly, do yourself a favor and stay away from this mo"

"1.12. Jos sanoin Rickshaw Manin huumoria huonoksi, niin voi vittu Frank Millerin käsitys komediasta. Tai elokuvanteosta ylipäänsä. Kaikki tarinankerrontaan liittyvä kusee ihan totaalisesti. Eva Mendes on aivan oksettavan ruma ilmestys normaalistikin, joten The Spiritissä hänen cgi-siloiteltu naamansa saa kauhun valtaan. Scarlett törröttää vitun nolosti koko ajan ja enpä keksi elokuvasta mitään positiivista sanottavaa."

"25.11. 2011 Can an action-packed comic book movie with Scarlett Johansson in a Nazi uniform possibly be boring? Apparently yes, it is possible. "The Spirit" isn't downright terrible, but most of its scenes are, which is problematic. It should be mentioned that the movie also includes a black guy wearing a Nazi uniform. I'm not sure how that works but I have to admit that it looks pretty cool. "The Spirit" is a disappointment because it actually has potential: The characters and the cast are dec"
