Denny Colt was one of the best cops Central City has ever known. After being killed in the line of duty, he returns from the grave as the Spirit and fights evil as a masked crime fighter. Enter the Octopus, an evil villain bent on gaining immortality and will do anything and stop at nothing to achieve it.

So basically this is Sin City meets an old pulp superhero, the Spirit, who was created by Will Eisner. We can thank Frank Miller for the Sin City spin on this flick as he was the man behind it. Which, to me, is fine. I thought Sin City was the breath of fresh air movies needed and adding that kind of style and storytelling to the world of the Spirit is cool with me. Granted, I never read the comics so I can’t comment on if that was a smart move for an adaptation or not. I can comment that the costume change—going from an all-blue suit and fedora with a red tie, to an all-black suit and fedora with a red tie—was a cool move as a guy in a blue suit, a non-spandex one, wouldn’t translate to film very well.

This movie is big time over-the-top, so leave your expectations for a realistic comic book movie at the door. The characters take a ton of abuse and keep on kicking. I mean, the Spirit taking a toilet to the head and still standing after? Come on. But if you go in not expecting a realistic superhero movie, then this won’t bother you.

On a visual scale, this movie is aces. The black and white, the spot coloring, the glows, the different animated scenes thrown in—again, like Sin City but a really cool way to do a super flick and it makes me wonder how it might look if it was done with some of the more major franchises—i.e. if Captain America had a couple slick, three-or-four-second animated scenes as part of the movie. You never know.

Dear Hollywood,
Please do not ever let a comic-book author direct a movie ever again. If you need a reason why, just consider Frank Miller.

And if you are stupid enough to hire a comic-book author to direct a movie, you deserve to get a product like "The Spirit" -- a massive confusing mess that was clearly envisioned by a man who had never really directed even a short film before. And as expected, the story is an absurd overcomplicated mess, which is only slightly redeemed by Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson.

Denny Colt (Gabriel Macht) was a rookie cop who was killed by the evil Octopus (Jackson) and then mysteriously revived. Now he is the "spirit" (aka masked crime fighter) of his city because... well, he claims the city is female and his soulmate. I wish I were kidding. He's called in on a case where the Octopus is feuding with beautiful Sand Saref (Eva Mendes) over a pair of locked chests.

Inside are the blood of Heracles and the Golden Fleece (no, it's never explained why they were at the bottom of an American river), which Octopus and Saref want... except they have the wrong chests. The Octopus wants the blood so he can become a god, and Saref wants the Fleece because... it's "the shiny thing to end all shiny things," and apparently women are magpies. But the Spirit -- upset that is first love is seemingly in league with the Octopus -- is determined to bring them both in.

The big problem with "The Spirit" is that FRANK MILLER IS NOT A DIRECTOR -- he doesn't know how the film medium works, how to plot a film, or what simply won't work. As a result, the plot is both too simplistic and too complicated, and dialogue is blandly stereotypical at best ("Spirit, we're two of a kind, you and me!

This film based on Will Eisner's work and directed by Frank Miller with Samuel L Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, and Eva Mendes; with so much going for it it should succeed. Sadly it's an uneven blend of Miller's Sin City and way over the top performances, a true mishmash if ever one was made.

The spirit was no where near as bad as many critics said, but it missed the mark as far as capturing the um...spirit of the Will Eisner comics. Contrary to what some say, the Spirit is the central character, and does appear quite often.
