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

As the vamps, Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson might be posing for a fashion spread with just one note to play -- gorgeous high-bitch mockery.
There are good things to be said about The Spirit, but not enough of them to outweigh the bad.
What is most striking about The Spirit is how little pleasure it affords, in spite of its efforts to by sly, sexy, heartfelt and clever all at once.
Miller's flat, humorless yarn is set in Central City, a vacant metropolis whose only residents seem to be cops and crooks.
Plunges into a watery grave early on and spends roughly the next 100 minutes gasping for air.
The Spirit is mannered to the point of madness. There is not a trace of human emotion in it. To call the characters cardboard is to insult a useful packing material.
It is truly a mess.
