Hey there,

Over the past two months, we've been learning how VFX Supervisor Stuart Maschwitz from The Orphanage created The Spirit's effects. Pushing the envelope on Frank Miller's Sin City effects, Stu has built a surreal greenscreen stylised cop thriller. The story behind the creation of this film is even more unique a tale.

Stu kicks a++! Been a long time fan of his blog filled with brand new technology, even if you donīt have the budget of a big production company. Truly inspiring!!

For those who are attracted by the images of spirits, do not be fooled like me !.

If you want to see a symphony of good visual effects go to see it, but otherwise, if you have interests in the film itself. Well! nor even think in buy a ticket to see it!.

The film itself is very bad, and very very boring a exhausting and repetitive speech of anythings.

For the record that I am a fan of 300 and Sin City, but this is the worst I've seen in trimmer to see in terms of content is concerned but I repeat visually beautiful

If anyone wants to read up even more on the production process of The Spirit, check out the book called The Spirit: The Movie Visual Companion (book review on my blog (http://parkablogs.blogspot.com/2008/12/book-review-spirit-movie-visual.html)).

That book is packed with lots of information and tons of photos.

Can't say anything about the movie, at least the book is good.

Man, what a bait-and-switch this movie is. The visuals offer the promise of Sin City, directed by Frank Miller and based off of a comic by Will Eisner. How could that miss right? Other than drop dead gorgeous women and visuals this movie is a giant turd. A bunch of obviously non comic fans were sitting in the crowd and as they got up to leave in the middle of the film one of them put it best, "This is one whack ass movie yo!"

Avoid like the plague.
