At the beginning of the movie, Simmons is supposed to be on a mission in Hong Kong, but when he fires his missile to destroy a terrorist's plane, you can see the famous lookout tower at LAX. See more »
The battle between Heaven and Hell has waged eternal, their armies fueled by souls harvested on Earth. The devil, Malebolgia, has sent a lieutenant to Earth to recruit men who will turn the world into a place of death in exchange for wealth and power, a place that will provide enough souls to complete his army and allow Armageddon to begin. All the Dark Lord needs now is a great soldier, someone who can lead his hordes to the gates of Heaven and burn them down.

A R-rated Director's Cut has been released for VHS, DVD, and laserdisc. It includes scenes that had to be cut for a PG-13. The film has a couple of new violent scenes. At the end of the film is a 30-minute interview with the creator Todd McFarlane and a Behind the Scenes of Spawn show that was first aired on the Sci-Fi Network. See more »
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.
