A stupid comic book movie that didn't have the darkness as the spawn comic had. The visual effect's are just awful and the villain is goofy and unfunny.

Considering the source material, this has to viewed as a disappointment. I blame most of it on the casting of John Leguizamo as a cut-rate villain. Not the worst adaption, but could have been so much better.

Well, I guess a big screen version of Spawn could've been worse. I think a remake would benefit this brand, as long as they keep Michael Jai White as the title character.

Had decent special effects and action. Dialogue wasn't that interesting. Sheen, Leguizamo and White did a good job in their performances. Nothing memorable nor dull about the film. Spawn can give you the action and thrills without thinking too much about plot or storytelling.

This was the first of many great super-hero movies in the modern era of special effects.

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0.5/2 + Love/Sex: 0.5/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 + Music: 1/1 + Good vs. Evil: 0/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 = 5/10 or 50%. Nothing in Spawn is memorable or well done. In 1997 the world was also on Spawn overload. The animated cable series was far superior, dark, and much, much more dramatic. The comic sold through the roof, toys were everywhere, and everyone knew Spawn's hell-centric roots. Thus, more toys had to be sold and a watered down and lame kid's version had to be made. If you enjoy 2-hour and one dimensial toy commercials (ala Schumacher's Batman "films") then have at it. Additional props if you can stay awake.
