It strikes me as odd that I mentioned Terminator: Salvation in this post about The Spirit because it seemed to me like the latter came out almost a year prior to the former. It was actually only a mere 5 months (a few days less, actually), but it seemed like a virtual eternity for me.
Anyway, I saw The Spirit over at a friend’s house in full Blu-Ray definition, and wasn’t all that impressed. I think the main reason was that I thought it was going to be a more serious movie, and it was actually more “comic book”-y and funny than I’d expected. It’s funny how much of my enjoyment of a movie is determined by my expectations of it. Nevertheless, I’m afraid it’s not a movie that I could recommend to anyone. Maybe if I’ve ready the comics/graphic novels, I would have been more into it, but it just didn’t seem to all fit together for me.
