I will say this movie tries to cover too much ground. They we're blowing through plotlines.

Always a bad idea.

I heard there was some decent gore though.

I liked him a lot. Honestly the acting is probably the best part of the movie. Everyone seemed all in. Him and Ian had good chemistry as father and son.

The acting was great. The special effects were good. Great if you consider what they were able to do on the budget they had. The visuals we're great. There was some decent nightmare fuel in the movie. The action seuqneces ranged from eh to great. Honestly the story is the main part that lacking. They tried to cram too many plot points and characters from the comic.

Shame because the Wild Hunt, The Store and The Fury were excellent reads.

I actually enjoyed this movie a bit. To be fair, it’s a mess, and I expect most fans without a deep knowledge of Hellboy May find it a nonsensical mess, but I thought it was great how much stuff from the comics they squeezed in.

Oddly what I didn’t love was the characterization of Hellboy. He was a bit too angsty for me, maybe? HB in the comics doesn’t let shit bother him as much as this one does.

Overall, after one viewing, I think it was solid. Felt much more loyal to the source material (or at least more reverent on it) than the Pearlman flicks. Though Ron was the better HB.

Big fan. Haven't seen the movie yet to compare this version to the comics.

The thing is the comics are well written when it comes to world building & twisting fact & mythology.
But when it comes to HB himself, you have entire issues where his only dialogue boils down to, "Oomph!", "Is that so?", "You bastard!"

He did spend a period in Mexico drowning his sorrows over losing friends so I guess that could count as being angsty...
Also the death of a girl he vowed to save left him broody & distanced, from memory.

The movie actually opens up with him brooding in Mexico.

Also when he just let himself be carried by the sea and tied to the mast of a ship for years in sorrow.

We graded it on our show when we recorded last night. I'll post the episode here when it airs if anyone wants to hear our thoughts, but of the four of us, we had 2 B's, a C-, and an F.
