Spirit, The (2008)
Movie Review by The Cryptkeeper
12.01.11

Spirit, The (2008) After rookie Central City cop Denny Colt (Gabriel Macht) is murdered, he's mysteriously reborn as masked superhero the Spirit. Setting out to rid the streets of crime, he finds his archnemesis in the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), whose quest for immortality imperils the entire city. Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes and Paz Vega co-star in this adaptation of Will Eisner's classic comic by writer-director Frank Miller (Sin City, 300). -netflix

It is not all horror movies here at buried.com. Sometimes we like to watch and review fantasy films, like The Spirit, which is based on the dark comic. While there is stylized violence (phrase apparently coined by the douches at the MPAA), it is not a horror movie, but I enjoyed it just the same.

One thing is noticed is that the movie seemed to have an identity crisis. Was it the 1930's, the 1940's or what? It seemed that alot of the cars and clothes were mostly 1940's-1950's... but there were cell phones, the internet, skateboards, etc. that found their way into the film. I know I am taking it too serious, but something about this bugged me while watching the film.

The acting was pretty decent and the dialog was often times quick and stilted, like a 1940's detective movie. They threw in a fair share of cheesiness, but done with tongue-in-cheek humor, so it was not as dark and moody as a film like Sin City. Along with the good acting came some hot actresses as well.

Overall, this was an entertaining fantasy film based off a comic book. I am sure fans of the comic will probably blast it, but I think it is worth a viewing.
