I know that I should be excited about THE SPIRIT, but for some reason I am not.
It’s the kind of movie that I should be revved up about. I loved the look of SIN CITY. I dig Frank Miller’s twisted take on stories. I am hot for Scarlett Johansson. But somehow this movie fails to get my moviegeek juices flowing.
I have no connection to the source material, I’ve barely read a Spirit comic, and the clips and images I’ve seen leave me feeling “meh”.
With just a few weeks to go before it opens, there are a lot of ads popping up, but I’m not sensing any real excitement about it from anyone.
I hope I’m wrong and that it kicks ass. But unless I hear a lot of talk that tells me it indeed does, I think I'm gonna sit this one out.
What say you?
