2.0 out of 5 stars The times they are a changing....., May 23, 2012

This review is from: Spawn - The Director's Cut (New Line Platinum Series) (DVD)
When Spawn hit the video shelves in 1997, it quickly became the top rental film amongst teenagers in our town. It was the coolest movie. You HAD to see it. Viewing it fifteen years later, I've come to learn a few things. Firstly, Spawn is a rather uninteresting, bland film. Secondly, I was quite gullible as a teenager.

Today, Spawn's special effects range from average to really, really bad. The actors are of a B-movie quality, especially Martin Sheen, who should do us all a favour and stick to TV acting. I was frustrated, watching this film again after so many years, hoping it would improve as nostalgic memories came flooding back of happy times with friends, watching Spawn, gulping down buckets of popcorn and liters of soda while being very impressed with this cool new film! Are teenagers really that impressionable? I guess I was.

Nothing interesting happens in this film; the script moves predictably from one violent scene to the next. Character development is poor, or non-existing. The film is utterly devoid of humour. I can't recommend this movie. Perhaps, as a Spawn comic book fan, you might want to view this to see how it has translated to the big screen. Don't expect greatness. The director of this film hasn't done anything noteworthy in the past fifteen years, which should tell you something.
