Can’t ask for more . . .
“His soul stretched tight across the skies/ That fade behind a city block . . .’ T. S. Eliot, Preludes
Because writer Frank Miller knows a bit about comic books, his solo directorial debut (He co-directed Sin City with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino) is a feast of comic book campy dialog, outrageously curvaceous women, and a reborn hero, Spirit, whose abs compete very nicely, thank you, with those women’s notable parts. It’s all about the mythological struggle of good and evil with visual delights and a bunch of bright dialog.
Denny Colt (Gabriel Macht) is a former cop, recently dead, come back as Spirit, an avenger trolling the city for the very alive bad guys, especially Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), who kills indiscriminately, especially those who dare to look at his face (As he hits Spirit over the head, he says, “Come on! Toilets are always funny!”). Mostly his plan to wipe out the city holds Spirit’s attention.
Spirit’s voice-over narration about the city may not be T. S. Eliot, but it has poetry about it as Spirit extols the city’s feminine qualities that make it his girl. Well, that’s a bit of a stretch because Spirit spends a good deal of time seducing most of the skirts he meets with a special eye for childhood sweetheart Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), now a notorious global jewel thief and implicated in murders in Spirit’s own Central City:
The Spirit: “There probably isn’t a law in the books that you wouldn’t break.” Sand Saref: “Do I look like a good girl?”
The comparisons with Sin City are inevitable but not difficult because Miller seems to be approaching Spirit as visually more stylized and plot less complicated. Even the narration and dialog are minimized and more exaggerated, but to good effect.
Spirit is one of the best movies of the year: an imaginative take on a comic book character that visually stuns and verbally amuses.
Can’t ask for more than that this Oscar year.
The Lighter side of Sin City
Hahhaa! Call me crazy but I actually quite enjoyed “The Spirit” and I think that a lot of other people would too if they understood what type of film this is. This film is an action comedy, much like the popular genre in the 80’s and 90’s except done in a more “comic-book” style.
The biggest mistake or misconception that people make about this film is that this is NOT Sin City. Although directed by and written (for the screen) by Frank Miller, this is not based on a Frank Miller graphic novel and in no way should be compared to Sin City. I guess the confusion comes from the very similar visual style of the film but that’s definitely where the similarities end. The first 10 minutes of the film make it blatantly obvious that this film is not meant to be taken too seriously with it’s over the top action sequences and “comic-panel” dialogue. Just think of “The Spirit” as a visual comic book and it will make a whoooooooole lot more sense.
The hero of the film (The Spirit) was hilarious! Tough and heroic and almost indestructible except for the one weakness in his pants, as in he has a soft (or hard) spot for women……ALL women!!!! Still, I couldn’t help but laugh at his awesome pick-up lines as they were delivered with such sincerity and conviction that I almost believed thoughs lines would work in real life!
Sam Jackson was brilliant as “The Octopus”, an evil, eccentric and over the top villain/mad scientist! In fact come to think of it, what’s not to like about this movie? It’s action-packed, funny as hell and the women in this film are all beautiful!!! Eva Mendes looks the best I’ve ever seen her in this film and the women alone should be enough to see this movie!
I think that now days people are so used to special effects that nothing impresses us anymore and we forget the real reason why we go and see films such as “The Spirit”, to escape reality for an hour and a half and to be entertained. Think about it, although this film isn’t pushing any visual boundaries by todays standards think about if it came out 10 years ago i.e. pre- Sin City or Matrix…people would have been blown away!!!
I do agree that the genre of this film does only appeal to a small minority of people and for that reason a lot of more mainstream cinema goers won’t get it but that’s fine, it just means that this film will get a cult following of fans that DO get it and enjoy it for what it is. So if you still want to see “The Spirit” despite everything you’ve heard about the film and you’re not a robot and actually want to have your own opinion, just turn off your brain, grab some pop corn or beer or both and leave all “Oscar-winning” expectations at the door and you should enjoy it!
The only thing I feel sorry for about this film, is poor “Muffin”!!!
