Well…well…well…what can I say about Frank Miller’s, The Spirit? If you don’t know…this is the same guy who brought you…SIN CITY…and my favorite…300.
SOOO…I was definitely setting my standards high. Well people…it was CRAP!! As in Great Dane crap!! It’s about this cop – – who gets murdered in the line of duty – – he is then brought back to life…by an experimental drug (Yeah, I know)…once realizing his super abilities – he decides to fight crime. (Wack!)
It’s got a HOT cast – Miss Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson are in the movie…if it wasn’t for them…I would’ve gotten up and left the theater. I was sooo confused…and bored…not going to lie…it didn’t make any sense to me. (lol) Mr. Samuel L. Jackson stars in it as well…and, I’m not going to lie. The more I watch his movies – – the more he annoys me. I don’t know what it is. I just know its super wack…with a capital S.
The movie is filmed great though – it did have that Sin City / 300 feel to it…but that’s about it. Maybe that’s why it only made 4 million at the box office opening weekend.
