The Spirit

Rookie cop Denny Colt (Gabriel Macht) may be dead, but for some mysterious reason he's still alive and breathing. Reborn as The Spirit, he dons a mask and sets off to clean up the wicked streets of Central City. But his greatest enemy, The Octopus (Samuel Jackson), is not easily spooked and he's prepared to use any weapon at his disposal, including the beautiful Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), to bring the superhero down.
