Hellboy - Movie Review

  • A film adaptation of the Hellboy comic book is once again made, this time starring David Harbour. But was it necessary, or even worth it? Here's my review of HELLBOY!

    1:22 - 'Clearly on a greenscreen, 'cause oh-my-God, that was on a green-screen.'
    2:39 - This girl can have ghosts come out of her mouth, but you would think it would be mist...It's not, it's like some weird membrane that looks like the ass of the alien queen from the movie 'Aliens'. Even if that's in-line canonically with the comic-books...make a change. I'm just saying - it was pretty gross.'
    So, was the CGI bad, or convincing? Having a tough time understanding with this contradiction.
    P.S. Movie was actually pretty good.

    I think that’s suppose to be Ecto-Plasm that ghost are suppose to made up of, like in Ghost-Buster.

    This Hellboy felt like watching a really cool game of D&D. The creature designs were sick even if the cgi wasn’t the best. I enjoyed how fast the pace was despite how many unnecessary scenes there may have been. The Pig was terrifying and a hilarious goon type character. After hearing it get ripped to shreds online and then watching it myself I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It’s objectively not as good as the originals but it was pretty close for me. The originals and a couple animated movies were my only knowledge of the mythos so I didn’t mind all the exposition that much. Also, the Abe tease at the end got me hype. I also try not to look at the original films with nostalgia goggles on. There was so much exposition in those things. CinemaSins Everything Wrong With... video on the first is one of my favourite things haha.

    Thanks for doing a review without a single swear word. I stopped watching Chris Stuckman reviews due to his thing for swear words.

    Pretty sure Ron Perlman is busy working on Teen Titans season 6. Hellboy can wait.

    Guillermo del Toro did I phenomenal job on hellboy and he’s such a talented, unique, original director

    Hopefully he says it’s dogshit because it is but if he say some great things about this movie then I will be furious

    Just saw the film and it was pure trash and man it glad I didn’t pay to go watch it. I’m sorry if I’m being too rude or whatever but it didn’t work for me and my gosh Guillermo del Toro bellboy films are a masterpiece! Guillermo del toro hellboy films are way fucking better than this new one and I think everyone wanted to see the third one. Also no wonder this movie bomb at the box office and it makes sense that this film was going to be on January.

    As a Brit, I've got to say: no British teenager talks like that. The young girls dialogue felt extremely awkward, not to mention she had about five different types of accent... WTF!?

    I think it was a good movie, it doesn't matter who directed it. It had a good story, plot, and a hint of comedy. I think people just don't like it due to the fact that it's not quite the same as the original.

      You just used the same comment as the review. Plus there was nothing wrong with the script or acting. But I will admit it was all over the place, but that also leaves room for a sequel with an open plot. But now, the movies been so shunned that will never happen. It could have been a good movie franchise if was given a chance.

      No it was because the editing, script, pacing and acting were all over the place. You don't know what a good film is.

    These positive reviews in the comments for the past 2 weeks are trolls from the studio and ignore them. This movie was utter garbage.

    This movie is on blue-ray/dvd now so I bought it and watched it. I thought it was good...enough. No, not a masterpiece. Yes, Del Toro did it better. It wasn't as bad as the reviewers said it was. I enjoyed it.

    "The violence doesn't serve a purpose"?!? It's. F***ING Hellboy! It belongs in there for the same reason it belongs in Logan. For Christ sakes that has to be the dumbest thing you have ever said. Who wants explicit violence in a movie with demons and monsters? Ummmm...me.

    Meh.... it was blah. I hated the way Hellboy’s hand looked. His designer was bad. The blood Queen was Beautiful.... the story was weak...

    So true. The best arc in the story belongs to a side villain, swearing, pig. 🤦🏽‍♂️

    It really is dissapointing how this movie turned out. I enjoyed the hell out of seeing David Harbour give his take on hellboy but everything else fell so flat. I would honestly go see a sequal to this movie due to the fact that with better direction and more flushed out characters along with David's good performance, this could be turned into a much better piece of cinema.

    Absolute garbage, tried to watch it and fell asleep. Unfinished CGI, nonsensical script and a real shoddy attempt to revamp the franchise. An insult to the origionals which I love

    Ok so, I didn't see this movie in theaters because of this review since I respect Jeremy's opinion frfr but I regret it. Watched it today and if your watching this review give it a chance honestly. Especially if your a hellboy fan it was truly fantastic.

    Hell boy 2 was good just in a damn if you do damn if you don't. They shouldn't have released that movie around the same time the Dark Knight came out.

    Rating R was "abused".. to much gore and blood.. to much f-bombs and bad language.. but it didnt enhance the movie at all..
    You either are Martin Scorcese and you know how to have a proper Rated R movie 😊
