The Spirit

Frank Miller takes on the city

Trending Now

Directed by Frank Miller (from Will Eisner’s comic books), this may be less twisted and cruel than Sin City, but it’s briskly witty, with a script so “meta” it all but nudges you.

“My city screams. She is my mother. She is my lover”, growls Gabriel Macht’s The Spirit as he battles The Octopus (Samuel L Jackson) and is purred at by Sand Saref (Eva Mendes) and Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson) in a hyper-stylised world of noir.

EXTRAS:4* Director’s commentary, three featurettes, trailer.
