    Should make comic modern-day fanboys happy, what with its dark undertones, its beat-it-to-a-pulp action and its sly winks at comic greats past and present. Everyone else, including fans of Will Eisner's original Spirit, may find themselves wondering what all the fuss is about. show more

    The Spirit is uneven, but its campy adventure provides some amusing, escapist fun. show more
