THE SPIRIT is an adaptation of a comic book about a crime fighter called The Spirit, who must secure special powers in order to defeat his arch nemesis Octopus.

Violence

Characters are seen fighting each other with a range of weapons including pistols, machine guns, and knives, of which there is a strong focus on during some of the fight sequences. A man is also repeatedly punched in the face with strong detail and there is some focus on a man's severed finger and a mutilated body.

There is a brief scene of nudity when a woman's towel slips from her body, exposing her bare buttocks.

There are uses of mild bad language such as 'piss', 'son of a bitch' and 'bastards'.
