The classic comic-book hero The Spirit is brought to, frankly, rather odd life in this movie version. This online trailer rather looks like the addled diary of a nutter wandering the streets after a bad night on the booze. Poor old Will Eisner.
Blame it on Frank Miller, who wrote and directed the film, which also stars Gabriel Macht as The Spirit and Samuel L. Jackson as his main enemy, The Octopus. African American nazis? Hmmmm. Must have missed that in the history class.
