A little whiff of sulfur. A wise-cracking clown. Today’s retrospective is on “Spawn” from 1997.
It got mixed reviews. I thought it was fun. It was called boring. I thought the clown was great. The CGI was considered low-grade. I thought it looked like fun. The bad guy looked like a muppet. The good guy looked spot-on. The violence was toned-down for a PG-13 audience. The action was fun. So it’s a pinball movie.
Oh, the cape. You’ve got to love the cape. If nothing else, the cape is gorgeous CGI.
So I recommend seeing it just once, if only to see the jokes from the clown.
