"Visually great-looking and a strong cast but that is it .. the story was silly & dull, probably too comic book-ish for my taste."

A Razzie Worst Picture winner compared to Sin City

“I had very high expectations for The Spirit because it is Frank Miller graphic novel, it has a good cast and I adored 300 and Sin City. The Spirit was very different to both because story was weirder and characters were similar to characters from other films. I was disappointed but not greatly. I don't think it is as bad as some people say it is. It had that kick-ass sort of taste to it but has a rather lame story. It takes and copies from quite a few films. For example, The Crow and The Dark Knight. The story of The Spirit is very similar if not precisely the same as The Crow.

Gabriel Macht was rubbish as The Spirit/Denny Colt. I don't think it showed how effective the character was to Central City. Also, it doesn't show what type of person he really is. His character rips off E” read more

"Ilmainen elokuva Ärrän vuokrakupongin täytyttyä ja tähänkös se sitten meni. Tämä elokuva on vielä typerämpi kuin Enkelit ja demonit, mutta tyyliseikoillaan pelastaa samaan sarjaan painimaan. The Spirit on jälleen kaunis elokuva muiden millereiden tapaan, mutta The Spirit jää menee tässäkin luokassa sieltä missä aita on matalin. Tyylittömämpi kuin 300 tai Sin City ja ennen kaikkea typerämpi. Gabriel Macht ei onnistu, Samuel L. Jackon on taas hän-itse järjettömässä roolis"

“It's a big joke but after the first hour it just gets boring. I already knew it was a bad movie so I had fun with that but is nothing like Sin City from Miller and Rodriguez and honestly is hard not to compare movies about the same theme and with visual effects so similar to the other. It can say it's almoust a copy but a bad, really bad one.” read more

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 a legend in the realm of graphic novels) directs solo for the first time for The Spirit, and the product is this definitive showcase of what can go wrong if a comic book artist seizes the reigns of a celluloid production. For Miller's directorial debut, the sense of visual style becomes so pervasive that it overwhelms everything else, especially (and most detrimentally) plot. Alas, the eye candy grows ” read more

"Cooleilun yritystä helvetin huonolla menestyksellä, kun Sin Citymäiset monologit tekoöreällä äänellä kuulostavat erittäin korneilta. Tarinankerronta heikointa aikoihin. Pätkä alkaa eriskummallisesti tarinaa pohjustelematta, eikä se pääse lentoon missään vaiheessa. Näyttelykin on tavattoman huonoa. On se kumma, että Sin Cityn konseptilla pystyy saamaan aikaan näinkin huonon elokuvan. Pelonsekaisin tuntein odotan kyseisen elokuvan toista osaa - toivottavasti eivät kuitenkaan s"

"No joo. Frank Millerin mitättömät ohjaajanlahjat saavat aikaan totaalisen pohjanoteerauksen. Will Eisnerin klassikosarjakuvasankariin perustuva elokuva on äärimmäisen lapsellista katsottavaa. Dialogi on surkeaa. Spiritiä esittävä Gabriel Macht aiheuttaa väkisinkin tahatonta naurua yrittäessään esittää kovaa jätkää mm. madaltamalla väkisin ääntään ja, hui olkoon, huutamalla (!) päin naamaa poliisille. Tämä karjujen karju Macht on pikemminkin pikkubodattu nössö, jonka l"

Spirited Away? Not exactly...

“''My city, I can not deny her. My city screams. She is my mother. She is my lover, and I am her Spirit.''

Rookie cop Denny Colt returns from the beyond as The Spirit, a hero whose mission is to fight against the bad forces in Central City.

Gabriel Macht: The Spirit / Denny Colt

The Spirit is Frank Miller's independent Directing response and vision of Will Eisner's comic book series. Using Techniques he learnt from Sin City and 300 he's gone ahead on his own, to create something unique, without any Zack Snyder or Robert Rodriguez at the helm. Yes The Spirit, is completely driven, in entirety by Frank.

So what is The Spirit like? Is it good? Yes it's fun and silly, yet in places serious and dark. Is it in the same league as Sin City & 300? Not e” read more

very good ,one of the years best

“Denny Colt, a cop shot to death, then wakes up from the dead not knowing why he lived or how he lived. He then takes his power to proctect central city, his lady. this is what the first twenty minutes of The Spirit is like. this very character driven film which stars Gabrielle Macht as the Spirit, Samuel L. Jackson as the Octopus, Jaime King as Lorlelei, Eva Mendes as Sand Seref and Scarlet Johannsen as a very convincing Silken Floss. the acting is on top and not one character is off by least. this film is very fun and funny. despite what the crittics say these days they seem to be off on almost every movie. The Spirit like it's predecessor sin city is not only entertaining but is very dark and centralized on every character in every way possible. there is a brief cameo from Peter Dinklage” read more

"In theory, giving a legendary graphic novel artist the reigns for a cinematic feature is a decent idea. However, this is evidence to suggest the opposite. The Spirit is an exercise in self-indulgence. Cardboard characters, no soul, emotionally hollow. It's just BORING! Full review here"
