IMDb: Down these mean streets a man must come. A hero born, murdered, and born again. When a Rookie cop named Denny Colt returns from the beyond as The Spirit, a hero whose mission is to fight against the bad forces from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face who has other plans. He's going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this cold hearted 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.

My review is based on the 30 to 45 minutes I have seen. I quite frankly think this movies looked bad from the very being therefore I had no desire to watch it. Since I work at a movie theater I saw the last 30 to 45 minutes of the movie, that were this review comes from...
