The Spirit Reviews

Ali Gray

Frank Miller will undoubtedly make a movie worth watching one day, but it isn't The Spirit.

The Spirit feels like an extended trip through Frank Miller's personal fantasyland, and it's easy to guess how interesting a film made for an audience of one is going to be to anyone else.

I guess a movie this brassy, sumptuous, and unafraid of what-the-hell effects, gags and visuals isn't enough for a lot of people. I don't really know why.

A blissfully coked-out-of-its-mind spit-take on Eisner and the modern world of superhero cinema, The Spirit is wet bag of hot breath.

If Frank Miller is aiming for camp, he's playing cricket with a sledgehammer

Certifiably, but agreeably, insane, "The Spirit" plays like "Dick Tracy" on brown acid. Dialogue is bleated, not spoken. Artifacts are used as snuggle blankets. And it's aggressively bizarre, but it's the definition of guilty-pleasure entertainment.

No amount of flash can camouflage the career-low performances, the scaffolding where characterisation should be, the pitiful cod '40s dialogue, the monstrously fumbled comedy.

More interested in being a technical marvel than a coherent story.

Soa como uma mistura desajeitada de filme noir e da série de tevê Batman produzida na década de 60.

The Age (Australia)

As an action director Miller is almost as clumsy as Baz Luhrmann, but he's far from naïve, and presumably the delirium of The Spirit is exactly what he intended.

Miller's background as an artist was undoubtedly an important factor in achieving the striking visual effects. It's just when the human characters dominate the action that the film sinks like a stone.

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

It's a plot from the 'more is more' school of scriptwriting and while the live action crossed with stylised graphic novel effect is sublime, it can't distract from the clunkiness of it all.

FILMINK (Australia)

The Spirit is hollow, with a convoluted plot, and Miller has clearly opted for visual style over thematic depth.

As it went on, I discovered that it had a kind of appealingly dumb, playful quality.

Miller's directing chops, er, chop, is non-existent, offering up a muck of amateurish posturing, weak storyline and tedious characters. As for the title? Ouch, that's some irony.

Eva Mendes is the new Raquel Welch but even Raquel/Eva can't make this movie work

Is it trying to be a parody of itself?

Now that they've gone and made Batman all serious and good, the campy comics hero movie mantle has been taken up by The Spirit.

In their first battle, The Octopus smashes a toilet over The Spirit's head, laughs maniacally, and declares, "Toilets are always funny!" This movie would know: It clearly deserves to be flushed down one.

Empire Magazine

Displaying admirable love for pulp material and striking enviably sexy poses, but missing the emotional resonance, zeitgeist-catching populism and mainstream thrills which found movie franchises.
