I have bin collecting spawn comix for 9 years and I really thought this movie was gonna rock when it came out in theaters. BOY WAS I WRONG. THE FILM IS HORRIBLE.
1 STAR FOR SPECIAL EFFECTS
2 STAR FOR THE CAST MEMBERS WHO COULD HAVE MADE THIS A BIG FILM.
WHY TODD WHY?!!! You should have directed this film and well, we sure as HELL would have expected a hard R but who the hell got this guy to direct it?
They could have made this movie big and they messed it up.
When I saw the R rated versian of the film I was like...WHAT THE HELL?...THERE WAS NOTHING R ABOUT THAT. YOU JUST SEE A FRIGGIN' HOLE IN A WOMANS HEAD....OH YEAH....AND INSTEAD OF THE LINE HE SAID IN ONE OF HIS BATTLES IT got changed to holy s**t...THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH IT! I thought the violator was gonna rip the homles kids dad apart. NOT SHAKE HIM AROUND AND SLAM HIM TO THE WALL! This is not how spawn is in the comics. The comic is very dark and mature. Same with the series on HBO.
The HBO series makes up for it so go watch that. I read that columbia or paramount is gonna produce spawnII and Todd Mcfarlane is gonna' direct it! YAAAAAAAAAAAA! Later....

I came to this movie knowing basically nothing about the Spawn character, the comic strip, and the whole story behind Todd McFarlane's vaunted modern-day hero. I am familiar with McFarlane's work on Spiderman in the early nineties, but that's basically it. My reaction may thus be much different from devoted Spawn fans who had definite expectations from this film. Fans are apt to either love or hate the real-life movie dramatization of a favorite character, and this movie had definite limits that could easily rub fans the wrong way. I understand that there are some significant differences between the Spawn storyline we see here and that of the comic book series, that this is a much more linear retelling of the legend, one that could not afford to leave many unanswered questions at the end because the chances of making a sequel were unquantifiable at the time. The special effects are not bad at all, but the movie suffers from the overinflated billing of these special effects; if the studio hadn't overplayed their hand by naming this "the special-effects movie of the year" 1997, all of the computer animation would have been scrutinized less completely by moviegoers. The limitations imposed by the MPA ratings board in securing the film a PG-13 rating also basically ruined the film that was shown in theatres; this "director's cut" of the film is a complete and much, much better version than fans originally paid to see.
Spawn, for those who don't know, is not your typical superhero. Trained to be an elite assassin for the CIA, he ultimately decides to get out after a mission that kills a lot of civilians who, he was promised, would not be in the area of operations. His boss, played quite wickedly by Martin Sheen, basically sets him up and has him killed.

Oh dear. Spawn certainly falls short of everything that made the comic such a big hit. The action sequences are good, yes, but who cares? It's all show and no substance. More could have been done to: show the effect Spawn has on those around him; show his inner conflict, the 'whatever he does is bad' theme present in the comics; make Cogliostro less an interfering Yoda-figure and more of a mentor, the only one who gives a rat's ass about Spawn; make Malebolgia more convincing, and fix the Hell scenes; cut out the random elements which spoil it, such as the Clown's face on the spade, the way the Violator turns into a bookshelf and back again, the way Spawn's cape never seems to know whether it's coming or going.
It was a good idea, the opening sequence is fantastic. The hell vortex? Then the example of Simmons in action? Excellent. You know he's a good guy straight away. But a crap script, horrendous miscasting of Leguizamo as Clown, and a dumbing down of the major themes turned this potential blockbuster into a B-movie nightmare.

"Spawn" is one of those comic-book movies that you hate to enjoy because it is cheesy and poorly written. But you have to admit in the end that it was pretty fun.
Al Simmons is a professional government assassin. He is one of the best that the agency has. But when he decides to quit, his boss won't let him go that easily. He sets him up on one last mission before he goes. But the mission turns into a set-up from the boss and Simmons is brutally killed and summoned to hell.
In hell, he meets with satan and his army. Satan tells Simmons that if he goes back to earth to kill his boss, he will let him be with his wife again. Of course Simmons accepts the mission and is followed by the evil Clown.
But Simmons is then encountered by a religious man who knows that Simmons can use his power for good instead of evil. Through the movie, he mentors and helps Simmons control his powers and use them to turn against satan and Clown and still seek revenge and set everything right.
"Spawn" was a decent comic-movie. Could have been a lot better, but what it turned out to be was surprisingly good. The action scenes were definatly well done and the special effects were also very good. If you are just looking for an hour and half to waste with a half-decent fun movie, Spawn is definatly a good pick. But if you are someone who acts like a movie critic and analyzes every flaw within a movie, this is not for you.
"Spawn" runs for about 90 minutes. It was originally rated PG-13 but was changed to an R rating when it came to video. It is rated R for strong violence, some strong language, and brief crude humor.
