The Spirit

PhotobucketPhotobucketGraphic novelist Frank Miller freely adapts Will Eisner’s crime fighting character much in the same style as his earlier Sin City . Crime film concerns a supervillain who is prepared to wipe out an entire city in his quest to become immortal. Beautiful cinematography and outstanding production design cannot compensate for the poorly written script and campy acting which derail the film. Samuel L. Jackson’s hammy performance is the nadir. Why all the costume changes? Story is uneven in tone from beginning to end.
