Embrace The Spirit

Published by at 10:59 am under Action,Den of Geek,DVD,Movies,Reviews

See that up there?  That’s Samuel L. Jackson in a Nazi uniform.  Kind of crazy, isn’t it?

Well, that’s actually one of the most sane things about The Spirit, which I reviewed on Special 2-Disc DVD.  I was eagerly awaiting the movie when I heard it was going to be released, as I wanted to see what Frank Miller could do with real power.  Of course, as more trailers got released, I kind of lost interest because it looked (frankly) bad.  Actually, it looked terrible, and that was my mistake.

Is The Spirit a good movie?  No, not in the sense that Citizen Kane is a good movie.  Is it consistently crazy, visually stunning, and endlessly entertaining?  Hell yes!  In an era where The Dark Knight makes all superhero movies serious, brooding, and hyperviolent, The Spirit is a direct response to that trend.  It’s Frank Miller saying (as he has done with All Star Batman and Robin), “Hey, Christopher Nolan!  It’s okay to smile; it’s a friggin’ comic book!  You can be goofy if you want!”

Sometimes it’s okay to have fun with a movie, especially if it’s based off a kinda goofy comic strip from The Olden Days.  It’s reverent to the look and style of Will Eisner’s original strips, but there’s no doubt it’s Frank Miller’s project all the way.  That alone should help weed out those who can’t embrace the madness.

    Sorry Ron, gotta disagree there. I saw this crap in the theater when it was out, and the two buddies I saw the movie with and I all pronounced it as crap. The story was… weak to say the best, the directing was ham handed, and the visuals were far to clunky to be truly entertaining.

    In fact, the only thing we liked about the movie was the clones, the rest of the movie could die in a fire.

    I really liked the clones too. I think I liked it more because I went in with really low expectations.

  3. Duncanon 16 Apr 2009 at 3:53 pm

    Ah, well then yes. Going in with no expectations would do that. We went in with rather high expectations, which probably made for why we felt so poorly about the movie.

    I went in expecting something sub-Uwe Boll, so I was thoroughly pleased. Well, not thoroughly, but pleased enough.

    I was going to get around to seeing this movie sooner or later. But now that I know there’s Samuel L. Jackson in a Nazi uniform I’m renting it TODAY.
