I've not seen this film, is it any good, compared to the likes of 300?
#2
ive seen about the first 45mins of this movie - thought it was absolutley awful.
#3
I disagree, I thought it was great fun and visually amazing in HD, for this price you can't go wrong.
#4
The movie was on Sky premiere about 3 weeks ago, utter complete garbage. Maybe not quite as bad as the Max Payne movie but not far off.
#5
garbage!
#6
Can't comment on the whole film as only managed to suffer the first 15 minutes - worst thing I've seen in a long time.

However YMMV.
#7
I'll risk it :) Uniformly poor reviews for the film, but also uniformly outstanding reviews for the image and sound. Should make for an interesting test on my updated AV equipment if nothing else.
#8
Good price - terrible film
#9
I tried to watch this but turned it off. :(

Still cheap for a Blueee
#10
Not the worst, but it aint no Sin city
#11
Good price, appalling film.
#12
If you loved 300 and Sin City then you'll absolutely *hate* this! Total and utter toss - don't waste your money!
#13
awful only good thing is scarlett in kinky wear

i agree!!
#15
Definitely not as good as sin city, and the character is at times a bit too hapless, but i think i love this noir-esque style enough for it to still be enjoyable.

IMDB rates it 5/10
I would say an enjoyable 5.5/10
#16
worst film ever!
#17
I actually thought it was pretty damn good - noir style, underlying sense of humour with good dialogue and well shot and quite bizarre but then its probably not for the popcorn masses in all fairness...

+1

Save your money for something else, even if it was free I would not want it.
#21
Imagine how bad a film has to be that even Scarlett Johansen prancing about in her skimpies cant save it.

Terrible film, really bad.

Don't defend it by trying to elevate it:roll:

It's noir-lite, for people who don't know what film noir actually is. People see 'chiaroscuro-esque' cinematography and think that it automatically makes it a noir, without considering the actual narrative.

This is a terrible film, made by a great comic book writer but a bad director.
#23
I normally have a high tolerance for bad movies but this is dreadful rubbish; I mean truly, absolutely, excruciating rubbish. I lasted about 20 minutes and just had to turn it off, which was a crying shame because I really wanted to like it. Please don't be tempted by this, it may be cheap but its two hours of your life that you'll never get back.
#24
Huge letdown. Most of it was a joke and the plot made little/no sense. Couldnt make it past 30 minutes of this film
#25
I can assure you that this movie is just plain awful. It's a classic example of no matter how gorgeous the visuals are if the script stinks then the whole film does. Shame really considering the talent involved.
#26
thanks ordered my copy
#27
Such a bad film, hot women in it though
#28
When I think of how fantastic and innovative the Spirit comic books have been through the years it really is a shame that the film doesn't do them justice. Why not invest in a couple of the Spirit collections instead?

I thought I was the only one who'd turned it off before I read this thread. :-D

Really bad film but I guess a good price for an AV/Endurance Test.

You've never seen the Avengers then!

A very very bad film..... Avoid :cry:

Couldn't have put it better myself. Could only bare about 10 minutes of this tripe.
#33
This is probably the worst film I've seen in my entire life....and I've seen a lot of films.
#34
Terrible film
#35
Bad price for a terrible film....I don't care if it's "cheap for a blu-ray"....why pay £5.99 just to torture yourself when you could buy a stapler from the pound shop and staple your sensitive parts to a table and still have £4.99 left over.
#36
Samual l Jackson dressed as a nazi is full of win and was one of the funniest damn things i ever did see. From what i can remember the rest of film was god awful save for a few scenes here and there
#37
I saw it a few weeks ago, it was awful compared to the glorious Sin City.
#38
This film is so bad it makes " Wild wild west " look like "Lawrence of Arabia"

Yes I've commented twice on it.

There are much better things to do for 103 mins.
#39
I think a lot of people have been unfair in this thread, Wild Wild West for example was at least tolerable. The Spirit on the other hand was utter rubbish. I bought this second hand on bluray a while back and got rid of it within a week. My advice would be to avoid at all cost. Still not a bad price for a bluray.
