Adapted from the Will Eisner’s graphic novels, “The Spirit” tells the story of a man who fakes his own death and fights crime from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus — who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face — has other plans. He’s going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this coldhearted killer from the 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 the masked crusader.

Lay and I went to see this movie last night. I will provide a review when we are able to actually watch the movie all the way through. For some reason, it was one of the most unruly theaters we’ve ever been in, and we left and got out money back after about 15 minutes. We were not the only ones from that movie at the customer service desk asking for our money back because of the noise and cell phones.
I accept that rudeness in public, especially movie theaters, seems be an ever increasing problem, but for the $9.50 a ticket charged by the local theaters, they need to pvoide some regular monitoring of the theaters, and remove noisy patrons.
