Plot: An assassin named Al Simmons is double-crossed and murdered by his evil boss Jason Wynn. Al makes a deal with the devil and returns to earth as Spawn to see his wife. He is ordered by the devil's minion, The Clown, to kill Wynn. Wynn has made a deal with the clown too and is suppose to destroy the world with a deadly virus that will help start Armageddon and allow Hell to attack Heaven. Spawn must choose between Good & Evil.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Geez, more like YAWN.  That was too easy but it was boring and loud. The creature effects were dodgy in the beginning and kind of fun in the second half but there was just way too much loud action and raspy voices. Spawn's cape looked amazing and it was great seeing Black Dynamite in a flick.  The best parts were his reactions to his new super powers.  That was fun but you can't frame a movie with that and a good looking cape.  Leguizamo had moments of funny but he was in it way too much.  Halfway through the picture I was checking out.
