Reviewed on 5/24/2013...
Todd McFarlane's comic book gets the "B" movie treatment -- unfortunately, the filmmakers seem to be operating under the delusion that it's an "A" movie. Painfully obvious cost cutting, an unfortunate reliance on extremely cheap CGI effects (seriously folks, much of this movie looks like a bad Sega Genesis game), and worst of all, a cliche'd, mostly incomprehensible story and horrendous acting (how did Martin Sheen go from "Apocalypse Now" to scenery-chewing ham like this?) absolutely kill what could've -- no make that should've -- been a pretty bad-ass flick. Yeesh, what a mess. The character deserves better.

Spawn - The Director's Cut (New Line Platinum Series)

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Al Simmons, is a military soldier/assassin, who has been betrayed by a covert government agency head named Jason Wynn. Wynn orders his top assassin, Jessica Priest, to assassinate him. After Simmons dies, he is immediately transported to Hell, where Malebolgia, a demonic ruler of the various realms, offers him a Faustian deal. If Simmons becomes his eternal servant and leader of Hell's army in Armageddon, he will be able to return to Earth to see his beloved fiancee, Wanda Blake. And Simmons accepts the offer and is transformed into a Hellspawn, which is a servant of Malebolgia in a necroplasm suit that is not only a living, breathing creature, but is also his only protection in the world. Simmons, soon to be dubbed "Spawn" by Malebolgia's crony, The Violator, returns to Earth and attempts to reunite with Wanda, not knowing that five years have passed. He also seeks revenge on his former boss and killer, Jason Wynn, who has made a deal with The Violator to develop a lethal virus to take over the world, where Wynn is promised to be king. Very enjoyable to watch, and a great visual ride."
