I recently watched Frank Miller's movie, The Spirit. I'm a big fan of Sin City but this movie confounds me. I feel completely... blank... toward this film. I don't hate it, I don't like it. I'm indifferent. It's not like there's anything WRONG with the movie - there just happens to be nothing right. The visuals are interesting but I couldn't bring myself to care about the plot or the characters at all. It doesn't have the heart of Sin City even though it carries many of the stylistic themes.
Perhaps it is because this movie relies so heavily upon cliche. Or perhaps it is because the characters aren't humanized at all. Perhaps it is because the film twists its own internal logic without explanation. I don't know.
Bottom line advice from me is: Skip this movie unless you're trying to watch every comic book movie.
1LR review: 8 out of 20 - it's a miss!
