‘The Spirit’


Adapted from Will Eisner’s comic strip, “The Spirit” tells the story of a cop (Gabriel Macht) who returns from the dead to battle the evil Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson).

Running time/rating: 1:43; rated PG-13 for intense sequences of stylized violence and action, sexual content, brief nudity.

What they’re saying: “Samuel L. Jackson has hit a rock bottom with ‘The Spirit’ that’s comparable only to Joan Crawford’s appearance in ‘Trog.’ ” – Jeremiah Kipp, Slant Magazine
