So glad I never went and saw this in theaters. This movie tries waaay to hard, holy shit its mind boggling.
APE_GOD - 2010-03-02
This is unbelievable.

Syd Midnight - 2010-03-02
Making a horrible movie adaptation of The Spirit is about the most blasphemous thing you could do to comics.
cognitivedissonance - 2010-03-02
5 stars. You people keep forgetting what Portal of Evil is all about.
oogaBooga - 2010-03-02
5 stars for how fucking awful this movie was
Rodents of Unusual Size - 2010-03-03
I didn't know what this was as I watched it. I assumed it was some purposefully bad comedy.

And no offense Eva Mendes, but between this and Franklyn you are really getting on my fucking nerves.

Camonk - 2010-03-02
Five stars for how much more horrible this is than I thought it'd be.

And I thought it'd be really bad.
Vaidency - 2010-03-03
Holy crap. I read all these comments about how it was worse than people thought it would be before watching and I still wasn't prepared.

FABIO - 2010-03-03
I read your comment how reading the comments on how bad it was didn't prepare you for how bad it was and was still not prepared for how bad it was.

revdrew - 2010-03-02
Oh man, they weren't kidding were they.

frank miller: a fucking hack since 1986.
BOOSH - 2010-03-03

People spent time and money hiring actors, setting up the shot, filming it and then editing it

cocaine is a hell of a drug

Caminante Nocturno - 2010-03-03
So, some people are pretty much allowed to put whatever they want into a movie, and nobody's going to call them on it?
Candlejackv616 - 2010-03-03
It depends on what you consider calling him on it. I think its safe to say that to most comic fans and a decent amount of the general public thought this was dumb as shit.

I still haven't met anyone who really geeked out on this or even thought it was mediocre. I enjoy how in the past Miller blamed previous failures in the film industry on Hollywood interference and politics...I wonder in a couple of years how he'll defend this?

Raggamuffin - 2010-03-03
In Hollywood, when the two prior projects you were involved in make back 4x, and 7x their respective budgets, they let you loose to do as you please. Thankfully for us they don't forgive flops as easily.

Five for the first and, god willing, the last time Frank Miller is cut loose.
NewHeavenSalesman - 2010-03-03
You cannot make a clunkier sequence than this. Torgo's scenes were more fluid than this, the interactions in Plan 9 more human.

Reading the wiki for this movie is like riding a white water rapid of utter despair.

CapnJesusHood - 2010-03-03
Holy shit you weren't kidding. Compliments of the wiki article, a full list of the names of the retarded clones: Phobos, Logos, Pathos, Ethos, Bulbos, Huevos, Rancheros, Mangos, Adios and Amigos.

Roger Ebert: "There is not a trace of human emotion in it. To call the characters cardboard is to insult a useful packing material"

keinsignal - 2010-04-17
Is that woman's name Sans Serif? Do I have that right?

Harveyjames - 2011-02-06
I've seen this movie and there's also one called 'Dildos' I shit you not

Maggot Brain - 2010-03-03
the parts with Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson scenes worth watching.
CapnJesusHood - 2010-03-03
I never thought I'd hate something featuring Scarlett Johansson dressed like a geisha and Eva Mendes dressed like Carmen San Diego.
sosage - 2010-03-03
Please tear down the blue screens and step away from attempting Hard Boiled.
Unmerciful Crushing Force - 2010-03-03
This is so awful that now I really really want to see this flick.
Nikon - 2010-03-03
Please don't pay money to see it. Or if you do, make sure you can get your money back.

Riskbreaker - 2010-03-03
This movie came from the man that wrote this

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/df/GoddamnBatman.jp g

Frank Miller got senile in the worse way possible, cocaine was probably involved.
Riskbreaker - 2010-03-03

Nikon - 2010-03-03
There were some problems with this film.
Midnight Man - 2010-03-03
How bad a director do you have to be to have these particular actors come across so stiff?

And the fuck is with making the Octopus a black weeaboo?
MrBuddy - 2010-03-03
Wasn't the whole point to The Octopus that he never showed his face and killed everyone who saw him? Kevin Smith once said, "In Hollywood you fail up." In other words, if you make a bad movie you get a bigger budget on your next movie. I believe him now. Stars are for the awful.

MacGyver Style Bomb - 2010-03-03
I can't help but wonder if there was something in the ink that caused so many prominent post-Silver Age creators to go completely batshit insane. Adams, Byrne, Miller, Sim, etc...
Bort - 2010-03-03
Serious answer: creators such as Miller and Byrne used to work for an editor, and editors serve to rein in unruly creators. People tend to think that the writer is in charge of a comic, but really it's the editor; the editor hires the writer and artists, and the editor has final creative control over the comic. The problem comes when guys like Miller and Byrne get so big that they're allowed to work without supervision, and they get to run with ideas that, in all likelihood, some editor vetoed years ago.

frau_eva - 2010-03-03
Nothing prepared me for this. NOTHING.
Lurchi - 2010-03-03
The dialogue seems to be random words.
memedumpster - 2010-03-03
Wow, Samuel L. Jackson pushing the fake sideburn back onto his face after accidentally endangering its hold was NOT the worst part of this clip.
BHWW - 2010-03-03
One would hope that the overall failure of this movie would prevent Miller from being involved with the making of another film but this is Hollywood after all...
zatojones - 2010-03-03
aren't they making another sin city movie?

CharlesSmith - 2010-03-03
Frank Miller didn't direct Sin City, they just gave him a bunch of credits on the movie because they liked the comics so much.

Harold Manchester - 2010-03-15
Frank Miller could shit into my smiling mouth for giving us Sin City.

akinskirage - 2010-03-03
I preferred the scene where Samuel is dressed like a nazi.
Crucifried - 2010-03-03
I know this is horrible, and I hate what it did to The Spirit.

I kind of liked this movie. I'm sorry.
Rovin - 2010-03-03
StanleyPain - 2010-03-03
A movie actually based on The Spirit might be kind of cool if done right. I have no idea what the shit THIS is.
Goofy Gorilla - 2010-03-03
I turned the DVD player twelve minutes into this movie and that was way too much of this movie.
Creeps - 2010-03-03
I liked it.
ztc - 2010-03-03
This scene cost two million dollars.
snothouse - 2010-03-03
Huh, it is literally just them walking back and forth.
magnesium - 2010-03-03
This movie was awful and deserves five stars, but I'm minusing a star because this scene wasn't quite as evil as the one where Jackson dresses as a Nazi for no reason and kills a kitten.
Avengingatheist - 2010-03-03
So does the Spirit drink the Blood of Heracles?
dead_cat - 2010-03-15
Ohhhhhhhh wow....... now THAT is BAD.
Long Gone Daddy - 2010-05-02
From the Wikipedia article: "Fleeing to Europe, she was never heard from again for fifteen years."

Hooper_X - 2010-05-03
Frank Black, no!
Arthur Jermyn - 2010-09-16
I can't describe how awful this is. Uwe Boll could have made a better adaptation. I can't understand how anyone allowed this film to be made. No one said anything? They really let this happen?
