First official review of The Spirit online

Variety has posted the first official review of The Spirit and confirmed what a lot of bloggers already knew - it's rubbish.

Reviewer Justin Chang describes Frank Miller's full directorial debut as 'Miller-lite' and claims it's The Dark Knight's antithesis.

He also says it's: "feverishly committed to its own beautiful, hollow universe to the exclusion of any real narrative interest or engagement with its characters."

Chang's opinion certainly chimes with early reviews already posted on Ain't It Cool News and Newsarama .

Which obviously isn't good news for anyone - especially those of us who were hoping Miller's flick would be a camp classic at the very least.

You can read the full review at Variety , but Will Eisner fans should probably have their morning coffee before they click the link.
