- Synopsis / Plot
- The Spirit is the story of Denny Colt, a murdered cop who is mysteriously reborn as the masked crime fighter called the Spirit. Determined to keep his beloved Central City safe, the Spirit pursues Central City’s villains from the shadows and seeks to remove to the worst of them all: the psychotic megalomaniac known as the Octopus. Yet as busy as his ongoing mission keeps him, the dashing crusader always manages to make time for beautiful women, though he never quite knows if they want to seduce, love or kill him. But there is one lady who will never betray him, and to whom he will always be true: Central City, the proud old metropolis where he was born – twice.
- Critics' reviews
"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. (...) Rating: ★ (out of four)."
Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times
"'The Spirit' is thrilling, but some characters are weak. (...) 'The Spirit' is uneven, but its campy adventure provides some amusing, escapist fun. (...) Rating: ★★½ (out of four)."
