Post The Spirit - By Frank Miller
For those of you who liked Sin City, The Spirit is the lastest in the Frank Miller offerings.
Saw it last night for the 1st time. It's one of those 1940's mixed with modern times, fantasy settings. This one comes with an A+ cast a high-powered "B-Movie" script. What more can you ask for?

Of course, I have to admit, it wasn't as good as Sin City... but definitely worth an hour and a half of your time... especially with a few beers and some popcorn.

Using good old-fashioned B-Movie guidelines, I'd give this one 3 out of 4 stars for entertainment. I liked the characters in Sin City a little bit better. Who knows what next from Frank Miller. We'll definitely know there will be plenty of action, though.

You guys didn't like the 1940's B-Spoof? Yeah, it's corny, but lines like the Spirit's doctor girlfriend's response "Bastard!" is straight out of 1940's Hollywood.

:P

Well, Sin City 2 is in the works, so make sure you give Frank another chance when it comes out.
