The Spirit (2008)
Really, it's not a bad movie!
This movie is not as bad as everyone claims. Sure, it pales next to Sin City, but it's actually entertaining! Visually it's beautiful, again, not as well done as Sin City, but still a piece of eye candy. Now, the story is not a serious one, the movie is a comedy with action and violence. It's an easy watch, don't have to think too much, just an amusing movie. The acting is not as awful as everyone says, Scarlett Johansson is as bland as ever, but without the psych around it, people seem to notice! Everyone else is fine, Samuel Jackson is funny, Gabriel Macht tries to be dry and stern, but he can't help to go back to be Danny Colt, which is exactly what the character calls for, and Paz Vega is charmingly out of place, and intentionally so. Overall, the movie is no huge ride, but it's a fun watch! and does not deserve all the crap it takes. Watch it sometime, you'll probably like it.

A very simple yet touching film
The main strength of this film is it's simplicity. Without being too convoluted, the film has an interesting and entrapping story. Despite the simplicity of the actual narrative, the movie is surprisingly deep and stratified, as proved by the way the story is written to analogously follow the five protagonists , one of many themes during the movies being how all boys that age go through very similar situations and feelings. The story itself is quite original, and feels, to the viewer, very realistic. The feelings each character has really hit home, and even though some situations seem a tad far-fetched, it all fits into the atmosphere of teenage anxiety and drama, and awkward feeling of not knowing how to react to some situations.
This is a movie that when you see it, you feel the complexity, you don't have to re-watch it five times to finally catch all the clues to understand whats going on. This simplicity is very refreshing allowing the viewer to simply absorb and enjoy the core of the movie.
Basically, this movie is an easy watch that brings the viewer back to the beginning of the teenage years by creating a illusion of simplicity and awkwardness.
Great action, lots of eye-candy, a fun watch... silly story
I definitely enjoyed this movie... granted the story is kinda ridiculous, and at some points it doesn't make sense... The Sci-Fi factor is very cool though... they take the concept of "disposable phone" to a whole new level... The visuals are really interesting... very pleasing. The action is cool... and it the best part is that it's pretty original... it's not the same 5 moves and sequences you see in every movie... The acting is appropriate for a movie of this kind.. not too good but not the most important part of the movie either.
Basically, the cool futuristic concepts, beautiful visuals, interesting cinematographically, and fun action scenes make up for the mediocre narrative and o.k. acting. I really enjoy it... recommend watching it if you find it in cable... not really worth renting unless you love Milla.
