Trailer Park | The Spirit

14 06 2008

Adapted from the legendary comic strip, “The Spirit” is a classic action-adventure-romance told by genre-twister Frank Miller (creator of “300” and “Sin City”).

It is the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as the Spirit (Gabriel Macht) to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. His arch-enemy, the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) has a different mission: he’s going to wipe out Spirit’s beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City’s rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront … all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader. Surrounding him at every turn are Ellen Doan (Sarah Paulson), the whip-smart girl-next-door; Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson), a punk secretary and frigid vixen; Plaster of Paris (Paz Vega), a murderous French nightclub dancer; Lorelei (Jaime King), a phantom siren; and Morgenstern (Stana Katic), a sexy young cop.

Then of course, there’s Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), the jewel thief with dangerous curves. She’s the love of his life turned bad. Will he save her or will she kill him?

In the vein of “Batman Begins” and “Sin City,” “The Spirit” takes us on a sinister, gut-wrenching ride with a hero who is born, murdered and born again.

With visual effects that look very similar to “Sin City,” featuring cuties Mendes, Johansson, Vega and King plus another Miller story with Hollywood’s coolest actor, Jackson and you can’t go wrong. At bear minimum, it will be a wonderful film to LOOK at!

I’m a huge, huge fan of the original Spirit comics by Will Eisner but don’t expect much of their, well, spirit to be evident in the Frank Miller version. Still, I love his visuals and it looks like it will be great in its own way.
