Amazon.com (ISBN 078311494X, DVD)The third chapter of this compelling HBO miniseries answers a number of questions: namely, who is the omnipotent old man who hides in the shadows and why is the mysterious Asian reporter (Jade) investigating the alley murders? Spawn has reached a crossroads, and he must choose between the forces of darkness and light. But it's not clear-cut: Al (Spawn) must deliberate over the seemingly minor differences that separate heaven and hell in his world. As a former assassin for the NSA, he "opened the eyes of hell" with his iniquitous deeds of depravity, therefore his journey to hell was preordained. But this particular section of the series intriguingly asks, What if you had no choice, and killing was not just the only way out of a squeeze but was also your fate? Intellectual stuff indeed. But as with the rest of the series, a profound metaphysical puzzle is bought to the fore without justifying it with an answer. Spawn can be frustrating in this way--just when you think you have it all figured out, the creators throw a mysterious curve ball that brings you back to square one. This doesn't take anything away from the overall enjoyment of the story--in fact it enhances it, for it keeps you firmly planted in your chair, pondering conundrum after conundrum. Once again, Keith David lends his haunting baritone vocalizations to the supernatural, tortured voice of Spawn. --Jeremy Storey
