As a comic book, Spawn may be first rate, but, as a movie, it's a retread.

The movie definitely lost something in the translation.
March 26, 2009
A moodily malevolent, anything-goes revenge fantasy that relies more upon special visual and digitally animated effects for its intended appeal than any comics-derived sci-fier to date.

Ends up feeling like every other mid-budget comic book movie from the second half of the 1990s, and that was a uniquely dispiriting moment for such things.

Has aged about as well as a banana in the sweltering sun...
October 7, 2004
A would-be cult film carefully constructed from parts of other cult films.

As a movie, 'Spawn' can't make up its mind what it wants to be any more than its protagonist knows who he is or what he wants to be.

... an incoherent blitz of noise, chintzy special effects and bargain-basement allegory.

Spawn is mainstream Hollywood cinema at its worst, a self-indulgent, overly violent, utterly tasteless piece of egotistical rubbish.

... the movie, which borrows from a dozen pop sources and improves on none of them, is pretty much a washout.

... Spawn delivers as much eye candy as the best, but not nearly as much substance.

The movie is too crowded with go-nowhere, potential ideas (lethal virus, U.S. imperialism, media watchdogging, racial and international conflicts) and too content to let its awesome FX carry the essentially lame storyline.
