We've been hearing lately that Frank Miller's "The Spirit" is not a good film. In fact, it may be really, REALLY bad.
The first news came from a tip from Aint It Cool News, where a reader submitted that the film was downright terrible. I try not to give too much weight to early reviews as they are usually written by someone that got lucky enough to sit in on a test screening of the film. But now that the film is approaching its release date, I'm starting to see more words from credible sources on the subject of Frank Miller's latest cinematic artsy-fartsyness and they are all starting to sound alike.
The verdict: the movie stinks.
Cinemablend has a detailed review of the flop in the making:
What are your thoughts? Are you wowed by the art direction in the film and the cool film noir look, or is it all just fancy wrapping on a big steaming box of crap?
Miller’s movie is unforgivable; a mess of random, disconnected scenes, boring speeches, limp-wristed snark, and inconsistent special effects. Frank Miller is a man without a vision, without a direction, and without a clue. The Spirit may be immortal, but his movie is dead on arrival.
