The Spirit Trailer: Action Movie Or Soft Core Porn?

There was a Youtube, bootleg version of the first full trailer for The Spirit out a couple of days ago, but I refuse to put those crappy versions up here on Screen Rant. Once those pop up you just have to wait a day or two and usually a decent version pops up, so here you go.

Now by "decent" I mean video quality and not the content of the trailer itself because my first gut-check reaction is that this isn't looking too good at the moment...

I'll admit I have ZERO familiarity with the comic series this movie is based on. Although Frank Miller (writer-artist of 300 and Sin City) is directing it, he is not the author of the source material - Will Eisner created the masked crime-fighting character in 1940. This is also Frank Miller's first solo try at directing a film (he co-directed Sin City with Robert Rodriguez).

Now for all I know, this may actually be very faithful to the source material, and I understand that very unique visual styles have worked for movies based on Frank Miller stories - but to me this trailer looks like some weird, avant-garde soft core porn film.

Am I off base here? Do you think this actually looks good?

The Spirit opens on December 25, 2008.
