The Spirit

The Spirit The Spirit (Denny Colt) is a crime-fighting fictional character created by writer-artist Will Eisner. He first appeared June 2, 1940 in a 16-page Sunday supplement. In the 2000s, following Eisner's death, the Spirit returned in comic books published by DC Comics. A film adaptation of The Spirit, written and directed by Frank Miller, was released in theaters by Lionsgate on December 25, 2008. The film stars Gabriel Macht as the Spirit and Samuel L. Jackson as the Octopus. Universally panned by critics and fans alike, the movie underperformed at the box office and is considered a bomb.
Is it a bad thing that I'm rooting for Samuel L. Jackson's character more than the Spirit?

Miller needs to find some one else to direct. This movie did not know what time period it wanted to be in. the film is shot in a stylish 40's era movie but you see them using the latest nokia's. You see diet pepsi cola.

Though a legend in comic book circles, Frank Miller’s career in film seemed to be on the ropes following such flops as Robocop 3 (yep, Frank co-wrote it!). However, the successes of Sin City and 300 paved the way for Frank’s inevitable return to film.
