This movie is action-packed but is also loaded with violence. The premise of the movie revolves around the Spirit (Gabriel Macht) of the former rookie cop who died returning to fight crime. It’s imaginative, but the revenge card is one that is sometimes overused. His greatest enemy is Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) who does make a formidable opponent. He plans to wipe out the city. As the Spirit fights the scum of the city, he meets some beautiful women along the way who have various motives, including loving him or killing him.
The story includes an Angel of Death and the violence level climbs as the movie continues. Due to the excessive violence and strong language, as well as the sex and nudity categories crossing our level of acceptability, we cannot award our Dove Seal to this movie as a family-friendly film.
