The Spirit (2009) - Film Capsule

Heroes: The Spirit

Villains: The Octopus, Silken Floss, Plaster of Paris, Sand Saref

Diabolical Scheme: The Octopus wanted Heracles' blood to transform from being merely invulnerable into an immortal.

Coolest Moment(s): Wow, there are just so many to choose from... I guess the final assault on Mr. Ock. Or just The Octopus in general (He has eight of everything).

Worst Moment: Being told that toilets are always funny.

Comic Book Logic
: I never quite understood where the octopus got all of his t-shirt wearing buffoon goons. Did he clone them? Then where did he get all the shirts. Comic book villains always seem to have plenty of muscle around to do their bidding.

Opening Weekend: $6,463,278

Total Domestic Box Office: $19,806,188

Review in 50 Words or Less: Interesting visuals combined with some odd egg-themed dialogue, overly dramatic acting, and lots of costume changes leaving me befuddled but not bored. Was it supposed to be serious or a parody? I probably enjoyed this more than I should have, but would feel guilty encouraging anyone else to see it.
