Product Description

Todd McFarlane's hell-spawn returns to battle the forces of evil on earth in this powerful feature-length installment of SPAWN. How can you avenge betrayal and murder? How can you fight for right in a world so steeped in evil? How can you protect those you love most from all that can do them harm? No man living - or dead - can tell you. But one trapped between both is struggling for an answer that can save the lives of his most beloved, or plunge the world into eternal darkness. The cloak and chains of Spawn explode from the comic book onto the screen in a deadly tornado of untapped, unwrapped, merciless power.

Amazon.com

From the mind of comic-book maestro Todd MacFarlane comes the second season of episodes of the animated Spawn. Highly stylized animation and provocative story lines make Spawn a sophisticated cartoon sometimes more appropriate for older audiences. Murder victim Al Simmons has returned from hell to earth as a "hellspawn," a soldier for the army of darkness sent to collect more souls for hell. The injustice of his death and his former life as a dedicated husband throws a wrench into hell's plan--Spawn remembers his human life and fights the inclination to do evil. Still, he is vengeful and he walks the line between killing for justice and just plain killing.

In these episodes, Spawn meets the man who assassinated him and becomes suspect of the organization that ordered him killed. Jason Wynn, the leader of the group, has plans to sell weapons of mass destruction stolen from the military. Spawn's former wife Wanda has since remarried Terry Fitzgerald, with whom Spawn must reconcile. Terry is hot on the trail of the missing arms, and Wynn and his assassins, including the highly trained Merrick, set out to kill Terry, Wanda, and their daughter Cyan. Spawn foils the plot while realizing the hard truth that Wanda has a new life. Spawn 2 is the slick and darkly realized animated adaptation of the popular comic book of the same name. It features the voice talents of Keith David (Spawn), who appeared in Dead Presidents, Denise Poirier (Merrick), and John Rafter Lee (Wynn), who also is the voice of Aeon Flux and Trevor Goodchild in the popular animated series Aeon Flux. --Shannon Gee

Great shape for a used DVD.
R. Johnson
Spawn is great, but this movie lacked some of the action I expect with him.
Logan
The movie was one of the worst I had seen in my life.

Format: DVD
The original Spawn series on HBO was a wonderfully executed project, and the second season is just as good. The story is well developed, with plenty of action. Spawn seems much more indestructible in this set than in the first, as he is becoming familiar with the powers bestowed upon him. In fact, there is only one 'counter' display during the entire movie to remind us that Spawn's power is not infinite. The installment answers few questions, and raises even more. There is also more of a Japanimation style to some of the scenes this time around.
While the movie itself is superb, the menu system could have used a little tweaking. The background music that accompanies the main menu isn't in sync at the loop point. Also, on some screens, all the available choices are displayed in text, while on others there are small 'arrow' buttons. Nitpicky details, but details nonetheless.
Spawn proves to be as complex as ever, never fully becoming hero nor villain, still unable to cope with his new existence.
Highly recommended to fans of the series. For the uninitiated, you will get more out of Spawn 2 if you've seen the first installment beforehand. Five stars for the film, four stars for the DVD presentation.

Better than the first Spawn video, yet you still need to see it (the first one) to get some background story. Incredibly stylish, surprisingly scary. Makes you wonder what'd it be of Spawn now if they had showed this cartoon in movie theaters instead of the crappy live action film. Why not? It's about time America stops pigeon-holing animation as kid stuff.

Format: DVD
The second season of the HBO animated Spawn series turned out to be a major improvement on the first. The gratuitous sex and violence was brought down a notch from the unnecessarily graphic mood of the first, but still kept at an exciting and shocking level. Also, Cogliostro manages to shut up long enough for us to realize that we don't need him to tell us everything about Spawn; we can discover what we need to know through Keith David's brilliant and emotional voicework (that stands out in a mostly mediocre voice cast) and the flashbacks that are both visually striking and incredibly well-edited into the onscreen action. Now that the show has set its tone and given all the background we need, it is able to focus on suspense, and the 2nd season has plenty of it. Did Terry betray Al to get to Wanda? Will Terry's investigating at the workplace finally force Wynn to kill him? And, most importantly, will Spawn ever get around to telling Wanda who the monster she sees really is, and will he fight for good, or turn his back to humanity? The 2nd season still isn't perfect. Spawn moping around can tend to get repetitive, and there seems to be a lot of building up between him and Wanda and in regard to the ultimate battle between good and evil that leads to few payoffs. However, whereas I barely made it to the end of the 1st season, I watched this one all the way through. I have not seen the third season, but if the show's creators continue to improve at the rate they did between the first two, it should be incredible.

Format: DVD
I remember watching this series when it aired on HBO. I was in shock at how dark and perfectly executed the mood of the "cartoon" was. This wasn't re-using frame after frame like Hanna-Barbara, it wasn't happy kiddie-fare from Disney, and it wasn't some strange art style inspired from Europe like Heavy Metal. Spawn was truly an animated series for adults, and people who could think. Don't let the spelling of other reviewers (words like "phat" and the excessive use of the letter z, e.g.) fool you into thinking this for the current MTV generation only. This is for anyone who wants to see an intelligent, dark series that probably gets away with more grim acts than many R-rated movies. Exceptional and eye-opening. You owe it to yourself to see this work of art.

The movie was one of the worst I had seen in my life. I did not have high hope for the animated series but I was very much surprised. The dialogue and, bizzarly enough, the acting are a hundred times as good as the film and the plot and characters are also much more intriguing.
This is the second season of Spawn and it is crammed full of plot developments and great characters. Sam and Twitch get more room here. But since this has stopped airing as of 1999 there has been no fourth season. It's a shame since the one thing I can be sure ofis that the story could have had one hell of a send-off when it finally climaxes.
It's more than likely in syndication somewhere so I'd start watching this if I were you. But be prepared. The violence is quite graphic and the overall tone of the stories ranges from kiddie fiddlers to satanic demons. Needless to say, it's not a cartoon for kids. It's an animated series for adults.
The DVD is in full screen format, as originally drawn and is in Dolby 5.1 surround. Todd McFarlane says in his commentary that he was working on a darker sequel for the movie. It has since not happened. But I'd keep my fingers crossed, because the toys sell like crazy and the audience is definitely there.

Are these episodes on the 2007 collection?
they are the same episodes found on Disc #2 of 'Todd McFarlane's Spawn: The Animated Collection'

very deceptive marketing on Amazon's part to make it seem like a different series of episodes.
