horrible and awful all wrapped up into one. Far below Sin City and 300 - Don't waste your time.
Honestly -and im not over exaggerating- words can not describe how utterly awful & terrible this "film" is. Despite an A-List Cast and some crafty visual effects which Mr Miller is known for; The Spirit is on my Top 5 Worst Movies... EVER!
If there was an option to rate this movie "no stars", I would have done so. I lasted 10 minutes, and was so bored that I prefered to sleep instead. I have NO idea how anyone enjoyed this movie.
An awesome audio/visual experience! The best movie of the year!
WOW! Can you possibly find as bad a movie as the Spirit ? - NO ! Despite an excellent cast & some crafty visuals, The Spirit is plain stupid & utterly horrible !
they are kidding about making a second right? seeing as this one bombed
omg ! uhm , yahh .! i so , totally demand . comphensation; this "movie" . is , horridd !!
this is a joke,right?
I can't wait to see it again!!!
OK, thinking this would of been good b/c Frank Miller is making it, and all the stars. Well, nonetheless, this movie is HORRIBLE, noo story, bad dialogue, just pure stupidy and boredem. I DESERVE, comphensation~b
Exciting, taut thriller is a must for fans of the genre.
Fantastic movie! If you like this sort of thing, this sort of thing's for you!
This movie was a waste of valuble 12 dollars. I found it confusing and hard to follow due to extensive boredom. The man sitting to my left uttered snores.
Frank Miller owes Eisner an apology,
As bad as people say - almost unwatchable.
really confussing, bad as well wait until it is a rental less money to spend for this bad movie.
YES it is so terrible trust us
As bad as people say! I should have trusted the reviews.
It is a sad day that big stars are making this type of bad movie. They are obviously not read their scripts well enough and only looking at the paycheque instead. Also this movie was so confussing.
It was so bad it is really not worth the money.
I think this is a terrible film. Funny thing, when I was leaving the screening, I overheard a kid telling his buddies that the reason they all hated the movie was because they didn't get it...?!?! My message to that kid, and anyone who argues "we don't get it", is that we all understand what Miller was trying to do...we all get he was intentionally going over the top...but he failed, and the film is a stinker because of it. So the only thing we don't get is how anyone in their right mind can like this movie!
Horrible. Considering the great cast, it must be a joke.
This has to be one of the worst movies ever made. Not for the fact that the cinematography wasn't good, because the visuals were stunning. What made it terrible was the lack of effort or intelligence put in to the script. A room full of monkeys with cigarettes could write better material. Seriously, I have a room full of monkeys with cigarettes working on the script for the Spirit 2. It will be in theatres in the spring of 2010. watch for it.......
worst movie ever.
Pure Garbage! I want my money back Lionsgate/Maple Films - I demand compensation!
save your money, see another movie, rent a video, stick your head in a blender but don't see this movie! the previous reviews are right.
I've seen some bad movies before, but this one takes the cake. I walked out. My girlfriend fell asleep. truly awful.
I've never seen a movie this bad.
The Visual Effects were absoloutely stunning! But, other than that this movie is HORRIBLE, no storyline, etc. Probally the worst movie EVER made!!
movie had bad plot, horrible structure, worse than lady in the water which was previously the worst movie i ever watched in a theatre
This was the worst movie I've EVER SEEN! I literally fell asleep watching this movie, save your money and don't watch it
This is so bad, I demanded my money back and got it!
Worst film ever!
pure trash. I walk out after 15 mins, got my refund. I have never done that before, but I'm glad I did.
A pig of shame, this film is.
This was the worst movie i have ever seen!!! My husband took me to see it with movie gift cards he had received from christmas, I felt so bad he wasted them on this rubbish i went and replaced them. We should have done what the other 4 couples did and bounce!!!!!!!! DONT GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!
It was what it was. I didn't expect it to be funny, kind of made fun of itself. So that was nice because I think a lot of people were expecting sin city 2.
Is there a rating lower that ONE star? For a movie call the spirit, this film drained mine. Horrible. Worst of 2008 hands down!!! (trash)
The first four or five times I didn't like this at all, but now it's one of my favourites.
This was the most boring movie I have seen in years. Frank Miller has created some great movies and I had high expectations. Terrible! Sadly I'd rather watch Nacho Libre, that's how bad this thing was!
Within five minutes, I knew this movie was going to suck! A couple of people actually did walk out of the movie half way through! Good concept/idea, but extremely bad story line. Wait for this to air on regular TV (not even DVD).
DONT WAIST 2 HOURS OF YOUR LIFE
I went to see this movie tonight, and had to walk out 20 minutes into it. Nothing in this movie makes sense. The scenes have mo meaning. The dialogue is terrible. The acting is way over the top. And as for having to read the comics first to enjoy this film, that's just garbage, I love Eisner's work. This film is not a reflection of the comic. In fact, Frank Miller should apologize publicly for destroying Eisner's characters.
I read some of these good reviews and the must be "plants" from executives at Lionsgate, because no sane person could say this is a good movie.
This is the worst film ever made!
There were 10 people in the audience, by the midway point, I was the only one who still hadn;t walked out. A complete disaster of a movie.
