- . A simpler time for comic book movies. A time of bad CGI. A time of reanimated dead assassins living among hobos. A time of John Leguizamo in a fat suit and clown makeup. Spawn takes the edgy, art-oriented style of 90s comic books and translates it into a barely coherent mess of an action movie full of over-acting, bad special effects, and Martin Sheen making an appearance to pick up his paycheck.
With every passing year, this film continues to putrefy more and more in its own rotting CGI effects.
If only for Leguizamo's jaw-dropping, must-be-seen-to-be-believed mugging and scenery chewing, this one is absolutely ESSENTIAL!

I agree. First, it's a bad comic book movie made at a time when comic book movies were - let's face it - really, really bad. Secondly, at the time everyone was going on about, despite the movie's poor quality, how good John Leguizamo was in this when, in reality - he really wasn't all that good. Thirdly... this is just a bad bad bad bad BAD movie.
