greeting to thee, thy hope to help those whom be reading thine review

(present english)

Being a fan of anti-heroes my collection wouldn't be complete without Spawn the King of all anti-heroism.

don't be confused by the title, its not an animated sequel to the 1997 film. It season two of the animated series.

the style is reminicent of a comic book. Its gritty, dark and perfect to the series that is Spawn. However it does lack special features and it can get a little annoying when at least half of the episodes centure around the trials and tribulations of Spawn's Al simmons' best friend and his wife and daughter. But you do sympathise with spawns current situation because of it. Just the the title of the dvd called spawn not "terry"

Spawn fans i recommend this dvd/entire series.

Well what can i say... its spawn... hes bad...hes dead... and boy is he pissed, keep out of the alleys or he may give you and your scumbag friends a hiding you will never forget no matter how much you spend on counsiling. Whatever you do dont buy these seperatley because you will want to see part 2 straight after you finished with part 1. This is what manga is all about the darkness of it that sends a chill right to your bones, the blood the guts and the gore...its the best thing since the discovery of television or something just watch and be drawn into the dark world of manga and dont look back. enjoy.

For anyone who isn't aware,this is not a box set of the second season,this is the second season edited down to an animated movie with less gorey violence,if you're looking to show it to someone younger or someone who's just not familiar with the character,I'd recommend this,otherwise hold off on it

I love the cartoon Spawn, and got this DVD to watch and enjoy but was disappointed to see that because it is a 12 rating large parts of the story where missing due to their graphic nature. The DVD is basically the cartoon series, seasons 1 and 2, put together to make 2 films (ie there are no gaps between episodes) and then had alot of content edited out to make it a 12. What should be 150 minutes becomes 88 minutes or something like that to give you an idea how much they had to cut out. On the plus side, the DVD allowed me to let my younger brother watch Spawn, which I knew he would like but was unable to show to him because the 18 version is simply not suitable and he loved it. However, if you have a choice get the 18 rated version which is much more enjoyable in my opinion as the story is easier to follow, clearer and holds true to Todd McFarlane's vision of Spawn as something darker than the average veiwer will enjoy. Its simply not the same without the violence, adult scenes and bad language! Spawn the animated show is great though, and anyone into gothic stuff or dark action/angst should be into this to.

If you need a change of the usual superhero faff such as Superman and Batman then you should try Spawn. Why?
Because Sapwn has it all, a great story, violence, mystery and a big bad guy who wants to make you puke.
From the top then...
Al Simmons was a government assaisan until somebody killed him. However, he made a deal with the devil in which if he could say good-bye to his wife, then he could lead an army of demons into heaven and slaughter the good guys.
Al is brought back as Spawn, a Demonspawn with the ability to shoot chains from his body and do other cool things.
Spawn is not for the younger generation and is souly for teens/adults. There are people getting thrown through windows and getting dropped from heights in this DVD.
The story is brilliant. There is alot of suspence and the ending is oh-so brilliant as it begs you for more. The voice acting is over the top. And the animations are crisp and smooth. Just what you would expect from Todd Mcfarlane.
So if you want a change from the boy scout hero then try out Spawn. Watch it, love it, then watch it again.

Let me tell you, about a wonderful little comic, named Spawn, spawn smashed the pre-set clechie of what a super-hero is ment to be, Betrayed by his ex-bos Jayson Wynn, Al Simmons is burned to death by fellow CIA agent Preist, he returns to Earth as a Hellspawn, he discovers that he made a deal with the devil Malbolgia, that if he would lead the army of Hell to march against Heaven in Armagedon, He could see his Wife Wanda again, however he was never told that he would be dead, five years in the future, or that his best friend Terry Fitzgerald would be her new husband. This show is AMAZING!!!!!! Spawn's torment is a great undertone of this show, and the fact that he sold his soul just for his wife, would apease any of the old goth-romantics out there. There are some GREAT deaths in this show, also, the twists in the plot are great, BUY THIS, NOW, you'll never regret it, EVER!!!!!!!!
