The Spirit

The Spirit(2008)

save a few, the critics don't get it. its not grim, brutal, and complex like sin city, but its very funny, sexy, visually inventive, and captures the spirit of comic book plots and characters. a lot of fun, its a shame audiences are missing out because they seem to have heeded critics who don't get it. very good story, excellent villain, fascinating, fun characters. great cast plays it to the hilt. in one sentence the octopus conveys terror management theory, a widely research theory in social psychology i helped develop.
