User Reviews: * (1 out of 5) Spawn
Directed by : Mark A.Z. Dippé, 1997
Cult comic book comes to the screen looking like a bad computer game. Lacklustre story, illogically put together, some really awful editing and dialogue and finally the Tron-looking computer generated special effects (as in Tron from 1982, yes).
Joe Leguizamo is wickedly funny as spooky Stephen Kingish clown and the only highlight.
