Last night I went to the movies with a couple buddies of mine, and we went and saw The Spirit. It was really bad. It was suppose to be a dark pulp noir film, but it failed miserable. When I go to a film like this, I am expecting witty dialog, action packed plot, and some twists and turns. It should have the feel of an old detective film, and harken back to the black and white films of the early part of the 20th century. Instead, the film was woven with a tired dailog, that seemed strained at best, and flat most of the time. After the film, we spend a good 30+ minutes trashing the film. It was really bad. I can take some satisifaction in that I was not the one that picked it. Clearly this is not one I will pick up in China.
