Spawn | 1997 | PG-13 | - 2.7.4

Based on a graphic novel, Spawn is recruited to fight for evil -- but good forces try to turn him to their side.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Sexual innuendo (including a masturbation reference). A scantily clad woman.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Scary views of Hell with fires and monsters. A man is doused and set on fire, a man is impaled on a fence, a woman is stabbed and a man's throat is slit. A monster's head is cut off (lots of green blood). A woman is shot in the head with a bit of blood. Many people are shot and killed, usually with automatic gunfire (but usually without blood). Photos of disfigured people and a charred corpse are briefly seen. Spawn is monstrous looking and sometimes looks like the burn victim he is (bloody and charred). Sometimes people and monsters bleed green blood. A man is blown out of a window. Many fights with punches, throwing people around and kicking. Explosions, threatening with guns.

LANGUAGE 4 - One F-word derivative, some scatological references, some anatomical references, many mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
