Well yeah…I don’t know what to say about this movie. I remember reading Will Eisner’s Golden Age comic and really enjoyed this cult hero in the comic book world, kind of Batman like in a weird way, but also with some wonderful levity to his character. You could liken The Spirit to Dick Tracy in a sense that they have that wonderful pulp feel to the proceedings. A fantastic comic series that you should pick up and read. But if you want to take the cliff notes approach to the series, Frank Miller’s version is pretty much a knock-off cliff notes version of The Spirit. So if you were take a quiz on this movie from a fan of the series, you would fail and probably be bullied for the rest of your life. Nerd cred revoked.
