The Spirit

The Spirit

The trailer for “The Spirit” was really nice and I wanted to see the movie.  However, when I checked IMDB page and saw the 5.something rating, I got worried.  There are many examples when my personal rating differs a lot from the IMDB one, but 5.something is always a cautious sign.

And since there wasn’t much else to see, I still went for it.  Unfortunately, this time IMDB was quite right.  The film feels like a leftover from “Sin City”.  There is nothing original about it.  Nothing much to enjoy. And, honestly, nothing much to see in it.  Most of the time is spent in silly dialogues and monologues.  And these are so silly that they actually harm the good acting that could have been done.
The only scene to remember is the one with Samuel Jackson dressed as a German nazi, and Scarlett Johansson helping him out.  Everything is else is boring, overdone, and unoriginal.

3 stars it is.

Sin City

As some of you may remember, I had some really high expectations for “Sin City“. I went as far as forecasting it to be a movie of the year. Today I finally got a chance to see it. I spent close to one tenth of a second considering if I should wait for the local cinemas to catch up with the world or to watch a mild quality cinema screener that was in front of me.
