And then to rush it's way through the second act--that the audience probably would have been interested in if they hadn't rushed their way through it, assuring that, by the time the conclusion comes around everyone is sufficiently bored and irritated enough not to care or really even be amused at what should be the bulk of the action and the most exciting part of the film.

a waste of money.. you should of kept the original which is much better ...

zzz ....

If you want del toro's hellboy stay home and dont be a salty hater.. If you want gory action packed fun with a charismatic lead and a shallow plot without too much depth youre gonna love this movie.

The movie is boring and honestly bad.

The action scenes are hard to follow.

It's not very funny, the action scenes are few and far between and are just bland, and the acting is terrible.

They focused too much on trying to make it completely like the comic books and seriously forgot that pushing too much into a movie is going to make it confusing and unwatchable....


Again cliche'd.

Don't waste your time and money.

This film is so enjoyable!.

Filled 80% of the movie with unnecessary VFX and lacks intriguing action scenes which is supposed to be one of the pros.

I really enjoyed it and had a good time.

To put it bluntly, the story is confusing, muddled and largely hard to follow.

Worst and very worst movie.

I tried to watch more but also the acting was just so bland.

But the script is lousy, it lacks imagination, the gore it's boring, the soundtrack is odd and it's more grit than fantastic.

It's incredibly dark and fascinating.

" Other than that though, the movie was, unfortunately, pretty bland and boring; you could tell how much of it was cut and edited around, leaving no one's vision clearly visible.

It's hard to follow.

Its borderline entertaining if u don't pay attention to the plot and awful writing.

But it was one of the most entertaining movies I have seen in a long time.

I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a darker take on this character.

The movie was unwatchable in my country.

But if you try to look past all of this, it is imperceptibly enjoyable.

Visually it is breathtaking and flawless with really good casting and acting!

But the movie is still enjoyable and fun to watch, I gave it a 10 to balance out the negativity.

I walked out of the theater on this one.

Found them incredibly boring!!!!!

I could barely keep from throwing up; I'm sure a few audience members walked out and never came back.

Overall it is super entertaining and there are some great metal moments.

THE LOW-DOWN: Hellboy, a cult comic creation dreamt up by Mike Mignola, is a fascinating meditation on the eternal 'nature vs.

The 2004 version with Ron Perlman was more entertaining and had a much more enjoyable storyline.

Entertaining .

Basic physics go out the window in some scenes because CGI wow factor trumps believe ability (magic works wonders right up to a point)It's pretty, but incredibly predictable with an over reliance on blood splatter, shock effects (oh look, more brains, entrails, blah blah blah, bored now)With events having a slight disjoint between real world acting and CGI overlay.

My friend fell asleep during this.

The style for the film has some pretty entertaining action scenes especially in the first part of the film.

The reboot is funny, fast paced, and action packed.

Fun, entertaining and funny .

In the end, the story and the characters are the two pillars of any movie, and Hellboy fails to deliver a well-written and captivating adventure, as well as compelling characters.

(No plot spoilers) .

The story introduces us to the lovably insane Hellboy very well with an incredibly intense set of opening sequences, and immerses the viewers into his world very effectively.

The final battle gets apocalyptic only to fall flat and end in very cliche and anti-climatic way.

This movie is too much.. The only good thing about it is the first 30 minutes, then people start walking out.

Worst movie ever.

The HELL scenes were shorter than a Silent Hill trailer though they were visually stunning, just too short.

Save your money and watch Dumbo or Shazam instead.

The action components also use the comedy to make for some more engaging fights, and Hellboy makes the effort to help keep action scenes dynamic and different.

Overall, an entertaining darker version that doesn't lose its sense of humour.

Milla Jovovich, who is not a bad actress at all, offers such an over-the-top display that only comes off as cliche, cheesy, and the complete opposite of menacing.

David Harbour puts in a respectable performance but his talents are wasted in this pointless remake!

I also think they could have reduced the overall time to an hour and a half because it was a bit slow in the beginning.

Do you like films with seemingly endless and tedious exposition.

The movie overall was very entertaining and funny, although an important note would be that it includes a lot of graphic content.

First time in my life I fell asleep in the cinema .

It is darker, bloodier and gorier, and it delivers with its exciting action.

But don't rely on it to save the day, from a rather dry scene.

Comics aside, this movie itself is a very entertaining action-packed comedy that my friends and I enjoyed from start to finish.

This was a badass movies, now i do admit there were a few small kinks but nothing major, overall it was a pretty enjoyable movie .

Worst movie ever.

This is one action packed, gore packed and humor packed film with monsters, creatures, shapeshifters, witches, fairies, demons and king Arthur and somehow, everything works!

The fact that we got this pointless and bad Reboot instead of Guillermo Del Toro's Hellboy 3 with Ron Perlman is really depressing.

It's a very entertaining trip to the movies.

Fun, entertaining, David Harbour is a great Hellboy .

The film was entertaining & pretty good watch!

The cons of the movie 1) David Harbour does a poor job of Hellboy, no charisma, not funny, dull boring and that is from someone who is bloody brilliant in Stranger Things.

All gore with no story .

Just awful, don't waste your money watching it.

After seeing trailer was expecting a disappointing movie but hells bells its really quite entertaining.

4) CGI, I never knew I was going into see a B movie Video Nasty, I don't mind gore but that's obviously the only thing the director though he could do with this film, it gets really tedious by the end.

Instead of trying to reboot the franchise, they should have just used Harbour to complete Toro's Hellboy trilogy and then start his own instead of this boring mess.

If you find this Hellboy reboot entertaining, then I suggest you to waste 2 hours to watch it.

5) The action, pretty basic stuff really, not much different to driving miss daisy, oh wait it was dull as I have now blanked it from my memory.

I endured though because there are very few movies I've walked out of.

Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time.

I gave this movie a chance and I was bored out of my mind.

To sum up, dull, boring, rubbish, tedious, no chemistry, poor direction, very poor story line, really really badly thrown together set of scenes.

Finally, the script felt outdated with cliche one liners and predictable moments.

It was entertaining and I enjoyed it a lot.

It was bland like an over boiled cauliflower.

I found myself looking at the time because I simply wasn't enjoying what I was seeing, I've walked out of a one film in my time and I get like I could of here.

Another huge editing mishap is the transition between scenes and the roller coaster of confusion in tone that it coincides with.

Its Just boring .

This movie is funny, and entertaining through and through.

Something gory and enjoyable.

I zoned out the first hour with profanity, fighting scenes to rock music, and a boring villain.

The dialogue is weak at best and just awkward and stilted through the whole film, half the cast come across bored and the jokes fall flat.

Most of the film is built upon extremely expository scenes where other characters explain things to Hellboy and that's just tedious and boring.

The acting is decent, the action scenes are thrilling.

All of the wit and pretty much everything you loved from the originals is gone and replaced with terrible CGI, bad humour, a messy and confusing story that is all put together to make one of the worst films of the entire year so far.

First off, the plot is confusing jumbled mess of a story that can't decide whether it wants to be Dark and Edgy or fun and comedic like the original movies.

The story moved slow at times, and it was a little predictable.

Just dont even waste your time or money.

The rest of the cast is bland.

The story was good, felt like the older hellboys with the action packed monster fighter and dry humor thrown in.

But I enjoyed it and true to the comic style.

This movie was so boring it's 2 hours long and it felt like i was dragging on.

Some scenes start too early, which makes them boring.

My only advice to you is save your money and specially save yourself from this gigantic flopshow of a movie.

It's a lot darker, akin to a dark fairytale and I really enjoyed it.

Waste your time!

After reading all bad reviews, I expected to be disappointed, however disappointment never came, all 3 hours of it's playtime were fun, I'd say even more fun than most other CGI flicks.

Too boring and there is no final battle too.

Outstandingly funny and very very enjoyable.

It's fast paced jumps scene from scene, I also feel like there is needless use of bad language just to let us know its R rated.

"The film did have a few entertaining aspects.

Hellboy has everything you need for a good action-oriented movie to be entertaining and avoids most things that make so many action-oriented movies boring and exhausting to watch, like bad characters, bad dialogue, forced jokes, badly told story.

Generic bland metal that crashes in and drags you out of the scene.

Probably my worst movie for this year so far.

3 people actually left an hour into the movie.

A total bore fest which does not grow on the audience.

This film is boring and badly done; everything that they aimed for, just comes crashing down.

Enjoyable .

This movie is waste of your time.

CGI is okay, but it becomes overkill after a while, and the language isn't there because we all love an R-rated comic book film ala Deadpool, it's just there for pure titillation, and it becomes tiresome as the film goes on, especially from Graham, who must be regretting his contract signing.

Still, it can be exciting to simply enter a supernatural world and observe its inhabitants, all of them used to what they themselves see and hear every day.

Hellboy, was AWESOME, KICKASS, THRILLING, angry joe!!!

If I could walk I would have walked out .

Very Enjoyable R rated HellBoy.

The motivations, the dialog, the editing, even the audio throughout is just disjointed and off.

The humour just didn't cut it, the story was pointless and some of the acting was somewhat disappointing.

I fell asleep three times and was woke up by my daughter when the movie ended.

Fun and entertaining .

THE GREAT: For me, this latest HB installment was an unexpected left turn into a darker, more foreboding Hellboy Universe.

So when they start to express themselves this is where it gets really confusing.

Absolutely fantastic, fun, and exciting.

Hellboy's sidekicks are also pointless and have no chemistry with each other at all.

Overall it was a solid reboot, an enjoyable movie, and i would definitely recommend watching it!

However, the story of the movie was kind of boring and cliche like other super hero movies.

I was so bored the entire time with this film.

It's a boring, uninteresting, forgettable comic book romp.

Entertaining movie .

No plot.

The credits scene was completely pointless and stupid.

He is very quick witted and snappy with quite a few good jokes.

Hellboy and the other misfits were a fun little group to watch, but were predictable.

Some of the characters are outright boring, the action scenes are poorly developed, so many CGI problems, the ending is so rushed you don't even know what they are fighting for, and it ends so suddenly.

At the end of the day, Hellboy is a morality tale, but this Hellboy was just plain boring full of gore, violence, and profanity played to rock music.

Milla Jovovich seemed bored by it all and was a little lame as a baddie whilst Sasha Lane seemed totally miss cast.

Pointless movie .

Hellboy is mighty while being snappy with oodles of wit, and Harbour nails down his devilishly fun persona.

I know that they've put in two post-credit scenes, but I was so bored I didn't feel like watching them.

Honestly he bored me and i did not connect to his character or his powers at all and his relationship with the characters felt very forced and unnatural.

I enjoyed it and it made for some very visually entertaining scenes.

Boring and messy .

Along with a rock infused soundtrack, the action scenes prove largely effective in getting the adrenaline pumping as monster entrails are blasted across the screen.

The cinematography is staggeringly bland, and the action sequences lack awe and wonder, and feel hideously chopped together and rushed.

Basically, my life is a lot like "Hellboy," as in scatterbrained, mediocre, boring, and dragging on for too long.

As for McShane, the Deadwood star goes on prickly-father-figure autopilot, adding some grit to pointless confrontation scenes between the professor and his demon son.

If your looking for one of the worst movies ever made...

The story is dull, the pacing is haywire, the editing is incredibly sloppy, the comedy barely works and worst of all, the gore....



In some scenes I feel like it's rushed, thus make it confusing.

The action is pretty entertaining though.

I enjoyed it......

One minute I'm bored to tears/snoring the next it's cheap jump scares/loud scores.

I saw "Us" which was critically acclaimed and it was one of the worst movies I'd ever seen.

Everything else was different, because let's face it, Del Toro's visual style is stunning.

A Complete Waste of Everyone's Time .

David and Milla have engaging chemistry.

The villans and the CGI work were solid enough but the movie was so forcefully fast paced you never really get a good look at some of the creatures that someone so lovingly created for this movie.

I find gore entertaining in movies, so I suppose this could be a con for some people.

Please save your money and time by avoiding watching this movie.

Oh, the "choice" that he does in the end is so obvious, boring and disappointing, that feels like a spit in the face.

That main plot, such as it is, is pretty dry, and the resolution was both predictable and short.

Cosby's script feels achingly disjointed, with a story that falls completely flat on its face and sequences that feel awkwardly Frankensteined together.

There are too many repetitive scenes (narrative flashbacks for example), the action scenes are not-that-good, the gore is just nauseatingly persistent, and the music seldom seems to catch the tone any given scene was supposed to have, the editing had some serious issues that a casual viewer could detect easily.

This is a crazy, gore-fueled action packed fun fest from beginning to end!

I thought it was a very entertaining movie and it seemed like a lot of people put serious work into it.

Dumb but entertaining .

It was a thrown together cliche ridden example of how to kill a reboot on film number one.

Boring dialogue, more father and son arguing scenes, and more fight scenes to rock music.

Though a bit confusing in other areas.

And the movie frequently writes itself into ridiculous corners that it quickly and lazily solves with contrived deus-ex-machinas, giving little satisfaction.

"The GOOD: The acerbic humorous dialogue between the evil guys and Hellboy are excellent ice-breakers, neatly threaded into the mystical fabric of a somewhat complicated (often confusing) plot.

It made the action scenes engaging as both fighters are obviously there hitting one another, while not looking cheap and dated when he needs to open his mouth and communicate.

What to say - i really like it, cause it feel much more entertaining than the latest avengers or xman movies.

I wasn't expecting it to be good, I just wanted some cool action and a quickly paced, entertaining superhero film.

Fun and Exciting (also super gory) .


What a waste of money.

Characters are often established, then immediately written out, leaving them pointless.

Overall it was very enjoyable.

For me Hellboy (2019) is the worst film I saw in 2019 so far with an uninspired and generic storyline, boring and uninteresting characters, some terrible CGI effects, an awful villain and a humor that don't land at all.

After movie my action loving fifteen year old said he want to leave as well .

A waste of time and money.

But it's in Andrew Cosby's desperately plot-obsessed screenplay too, which contains some great, fun ideas but constantly undercuts itself with painfully banal dialogue and minimal character development.

The same can be said for the other characters- nobody stands out, as everyone is just a bland, broad archetype.

I dont know this based on comics or not , but i just want to review to this film , the storylone is so bad , the dialog , Its boring.

There is no story and there is no excitement and the film is dedicated to children

I actually wanted to leave halfway through the movie, but I thought to myself "hey, maybe it'll get better, it only has a slow start".

A lot of the more tense and jumpier scenes involving zombies or monsters actually were fairly entertaining to watch as it kept you on the edge of the seat.

The film kind of dragged a bit & could've been shorter.

The ending action scene actually made me yawn just because I was so uninterested in what was going on.

Save your money .

There was a ridiculous amount of exposition that just bored me that kept coming from characters (particularly Ian mcshane, was probably 80% of his script).

Gothic, eerie, and reminiscent of "Silent Hill" at times, the locations the film takes you to are so visually stunning that you can almost forgive how mediocre the rest of the movie is.

They wanted to make it flow by introducing long shots with constant camera movement but this just made it so confusing at times I was unable to tell what is going on.

Mila Jovovic plays the Villain The Blood Queen and she is so bad it is funny, the dialogue for her is just terrible and she really is one of the most boring antagonists of all time.

Nevertheless, they were still entertaining !!

Hellboy is fun to watch of course but his two sidekicks who we got instead of Abe (for the sake of polcorrectness ofc) are boring and hardly give anything to the story which couldnt have been solved otherwise.

Save your money...

Overall it was kind of boring and the soundtrack was very strange, it did not fit.

Enjoyable Reboot.

The balance between these two was admirable, the jokes thrown during a seemingly intense scene made the exact effect creators anticipated.

It's the worst movie i've ever seen I swear it a wast of time i never expect to seem something as bad as this

Hellboy looked awesome but story was all over the place with no explanation on some parts/characters, dull moments that had me yawning and an all together awful story line, even with such good actors.

Waste of time .

There's lots of Britishness, cliché locations and language, including some naff swearing.

Its boring whether they cut some scene or not.

Very hard to stay awake...

Hellboy on the other hand was an absolute blast from beginning to ends, very entertaining.

But mostly it just felt very disjointed.

The script does take itself too serious which makes this film feel a little dull than the original movies.

Also her character arc and powers were incredibly interesting and entertaining to watch.

Critics are dull.

It's sad because the first 2 movies were enjoyable.

Thought it was entertaining and fresh.

But really entertaining me throughout the end.

A gory entertaining HellBoy Flick .

However I can comment that the script is just so bad, with very cliche lines and moments.

This film delves deep into sorcery which is insanely entertaining.

It's a very tiresome film, leaping around madly from scene to scenes desperately extending its thin plot to make the run time.

save your money for some paint and once applied you'll have more fun watching it dry.

The story is so confusing because there is like 5 different story lines.

Sadly, this is one of the worst movies of the year, so far.

Its entertaining .

Soulless lifeless dull af boring cgi action flick .

Entertaining but dull .

this reboot i enjoyed it i didn't hate anything about this movie this is something i would buy in 4K i did enjoy movie i seen worser reboots like King Arthur legend of sword it's morel like legend of bored.

Pretty boring actually needed more story and less boring fight scenes.

It's a waste of time and should be a black mark on everyone's careers who were associated with it.

Im actually shocked to see all the hate from critics, I thought it was way more fun and entertaining, and most importantly very rated R.

Then again, while it did seem to be intriguing, by the time I got to the cinema, sat down, and watched it, I felt that maybe I would have had a better time catching up on some sleep.

I truly enjoyed it.

Overall though it was entertaining and fun.

zzz .

Some good humour and action was spoilt a little by a slightly disjointed script.

Sasha Lane (Alice) is the only one who actually portrays a likable character (excluding the protagonist) and delivers a compelling performance.

The plot is crummy , the jokes are to predictable, the acting is the worst part , it's as if they're reading from an autocue.

I found the movie rather enjoyable, the soundtrack isn't that great, the pacing is a bit all over the place and not all of the jokes land.

Too many different things happen at a rapid pace, making the film often difficult to follow.

Nevertheless, the story is so predictable and terribly far-fetched.

This was the first time in years I almost walked out of the theater because I couldn't take it anymore

There was a mother and her young son sitting several seats down from me and as soon as Hellboy gored a giant, they left the theater to not return.

A fight ensues and soon we are taken to UK to fight giants in a well shot and actually quite entertaining battle scene.

The only other movie I've ever wanted to leave early for was Dumb and Dumber To.

but this was a torture...

i found it super dull ...

The script and story line was a confusing mess which didn't know what it wanted to do with itself and which relied on flashbacks and narrative to at least get some of it's awful story across.

Bad, boring, and booming .

Was expecting a really bad movie because of the critics and low rating on here, but it was really entertaining and glad I went to see it.

The story is also really good and unexpected !.

This new "Hellboy" is just bland and ugly...

As I said before, the visuals are frequently quite fascinating to look at thanks to the wild world established by Mignola's comics.

Many of the scenes filled with conflict in the movie were interesting and even exciting.

way too much Gore, horrid CGI, stupid monsters, cliche storyline.

If you want just a fun and entertaining flick.

Well worth the watch.

Easy to enjoy, absolutely entertaining.

So it's like the makers saw the first two movies decided that they were smart, had depth and where emotionally engaging and said "lets not do any if that".

Action Packed Fun From Start To Finish.

Hellboy has decent laughs, and some awesome gore and entertaining action.

Certain scenes drag out while others speed through important character development or any sort of explanation as to what is happening.

It's fast paced with high energy, interesting story elements, and plenty of monster and demon blood as one would expect from Hellboy.

He's a giant bore with intervals of inept comic relief and his sidekicks (Sasha Lane and Daniel Dae Kim) aren't much to write Satan about either.

The dialogue is forced or corny and the plot is predictable and boring.

Flawed as always, but thoroughly enjoyable .

Whilst I am a HellBoy fan and this movie is true to the comics, I believe that they could have gone at a much slower pace.

I walked out of the theater during the scene with the giants.

They did really stunning SFX makeup on many of the monsters/Hellboy himself.

Disjointed story, bad acting and certainly not entertaining.

I had hope that it would be good since while I really enjoyed Del Toro's first Helboy movie, I was quite disappointed with The Golden Army feeling that while that movie started off good it became dreadfully slow in the third act.

In the end, I would say it's worth watching as a paranormal action flick.

Unnecessarily gory and predictable action.

The story was fast paced, David Harbour was appealing and funny, the gore was awesome, and the ending was satisfying.

This has to be the worst movie I have seen this year and the worst movie I have seen in a long time.

A bit dump but entertaining (like venom) .

In the end, as a LONG-Time Hellboy Fan, this Movie was great and it was fun and entertaining.

Too much censors that made the watching experience quite confusing.

THE FINAL WORD: My recommendation: If you really want to full-out enjoy this newest installment of this still very entertaining franchise, try to forget you saw the first two films, because you will find, almost immediately, that the two original scripts, plot lines, and characters, have very little in common with this latest endeavor.

Basically don't waste your money, don't waste your time at all.

That final act in particular was so fun and satisfying seeing Hellboy show off his full engaging Strength and why he's so powerful.

Unfortunately quite boring .

My favorite fight was the end battle, which held more of the adrenaline-fueled insanity that makes me fist pump in excitement.

Worst of the worst movie everrrr .

The action and pacing is intense and the horror aspects are really well blended.

Worst movie .

I just wanted something silly, entertaining and over the top, and the exactly what I got, and I must say, I enjoyed the..erm..hell out of it.

I thoroughly enjoyed it like I enjoyed the 2 before this.

Right off the bat I would say the story was paced intermediately with tales and information but the movie itself was a fun entertaining watch.

This is still an engaging story.

Yet when a story is so incomprehensibly boring, bolstered by shoddy performances, writing and editing, it's very difficult to find any redeeming qualities.

It lacks the subtle comical undertones of the first, the good, down to earth dialogue and relatable characters, the intriguing story, the fascinating cinematography and anything else that made the original 2 cult classics.

Movie critics (unhappy people with pretentious clothing and appearances) hated Venom but moviegoers enjoyed it, myself included.

But it's a red box dont waste your money and see it in theaters.

Really a action packed new Hellboy to a newer generations

Right from the very beginning, I felt most of what was happening on-screen cringy, cheesy, predictable, just not interesting enough.

I've seen a lot of reviews saying this movie is garbage and some saying it's unwatchable, don't understand it.

It's plodding and despite the violence and gore it isn't exciting or enthralling.

You're in a for one incredibly entertaining, gore filled, epic quest of a movie.

I give it a solid 7 it's entertaining just try not to take anything away from it and enjoy the ride.

Quite enjoyed it, good humor and gore mix, story is decent and isn't just a carbon copy of the originals

It was soulless but enjoyable.

In today's world when average movies or movies that we've seen a million times but in different clothes (I'm looking at you, Marvel) with soooo many forced jokes and bland characters gather so much praise I think that a little pearl like this is a welcome gift for people who want something different from movies.

The worst movie I have ever seen.

If you do plan on watching it, make sure you watch the other 2 movies AFTER because they're so much better that you wouldn't want to watch this piece of trite last.

The movie was very fast paced - there is barely a second to breath and there were some very original ideas with creatures in it - like Baba Yaga and some other i won't spoil.

Hellboy is mighty while being snappy with oodles of wit, and Harbour nails down his devilishly fun persona.

Boring .

Some scenes are rushed to the point they become hard to follow and you miss out on key exposition, while others grind the story to a screeching and jarring halt, giving you a strange sort-of whiplash effect.

Really Enjoyed it!!!.

3) The story line, dull, boring and apparently thrown together by a blinded folded person playing darts.

I found it averagely entertaining but quite dull.

Worst movie of the year so far.

Anyways, compared to the 2004 & 2008 movies, I would consider this one a dull remade version.

Sorry for the long review, but please go out there and spend a measly 12$ to support this awesome entertaining movie!

The story is bad, the characters are unbearable, most of the time I can't see what the hell going on because the movie is badly lit plus the CGI looks like it straight out of the early 2000s with stuff like The Mummy, Van Helsing.

I have to say I went to watch this after being a big fan of the other two films with a bit of aprihension, but I really enjoyed it.

Every new encounter should be thrilling and universe presented in more real world science way.

It's entertaining as far as the action and bit of humor and I'm glad they didn't try to remake from the original, (sort of).

A sequence involving three giants battling Hellboy in a field could have been an exciting set piece, but is instead presented to us in an astoundingly dull manner, as are most of the action sequences presented in the film.

Also i would like to say that i found Daniel Day kims character very boring.

The R ratedness made this movie gorie and horroeific, but it was enjoyable and good acting from the cast.. I would say CG was over used here to an extent that could make you give a mmmmm, but the action livens it up.. All in all enjoyed it and comparing to the previous, I still would like the old version..

Entertaining .

The story and the plot is really generic and kind of boring, everyone in the film, with the exception of David Harbour, are just completely wooden.

The movie is too long: needless gory, profane scenes to justify the "R" rating, minus Deadpool's humour (ok, it's Marvel budget - it's unfair comparison).

But that's better than another one like this mindless gore fest with boring characters.

Already underrated beyond belief, Neil Marshall's Hellboy adaptation is a visual blast full of ballistic action, malevolent monsters, and exciting fun throughout.

It's also surprisingly boring in the middle with too much reliance on exposition.
