I'm a little nervous about the bad reviews coming out for The Spirit. Of course, the trailers have made it look bad for a while, but I was willing to wait to see them all edited together before I made a judgment. I'm still going to see it, but I'm worried no one else will, because nobody knows who the Spirit is. (And now, thanks to this movie, they won't know who he really was, because this movie seems to take a lot of liberties.) I wrote a guide to the characters for Movies Without Pity -- check it out.
Who the Hell is The Spirit?
