COMIC book thriller The Spirit (12A) screens at the Hollywood Cinema in Lowestoft this week.

The adaptation of the legendary comic strip by Will Eisner is a classic action-adventure-romance told by writer and director Frank Miller, who was responsible for the 2005 hit film Sin City.

It follows the story of a former rookie American cop (Gabriel Macht) who returns mysteriously from the dead as The Spirit to fight crime from the shadows of Central City.

Battling against him is his nemesis The Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), who is trying to wipe out the city as he pursues his own version of immortality.

The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City's rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront - all while facing a bevy of beautiful women, who either want to seduce, love or kill the masked crusader.

Starring alongside Gabriel Macht and Samuel L. Jackson are Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes.
