Writer/director Guillermo del Toro puts too much effort on image and not enough on background.

Visually attractive, but not much else.

... I loved about 49 percent of this movie but I hated 51 percent of it so I'm going to give this film thumbs down.

Dark Horizons

Inventive but derivative, well performed yet slightly hokey, visually lush yet over-stylised.

Without conveying its uniqueness to a larger audience, it finally becomes an empty spectacle of confusion and lost opportunity.

A fiery action picture destined to please fans of other comics-turned-adventure flicks such as X-Men. The rest of us will find ourselves left out in the cold.

Every scene is an orgy of elaborate visual effects but there is so little to tie them together that the reels could be shown in any order...

del Toro's focus on the mood and the effects unfortunately causes the characters to suffer

The promise is in the premise. Next time (and after Hellboy makes millions, there will be a next time), someone just has to make good on it.

Hellboy is as magnificent looking a comic book film as I've ever seen, but an increased sense of boredom detached me about midway through.

The movie feels at odds with itself, embracing the comics' idiosyncratic creations without an idiosyncratic worldview.

For all the monstrous eviscerations, there's no real heart here.

Del Toro has traded the subtlety for special effects that aren't.

I enjoyed the first 90 minutes and was ready to give this a recommend, but the last 30 minutes sent the movie straight to hell for me.

... a dull, derivative, poorly plotted movie. Hellboy's enemies are interesting at first, but they wear out their welcome quickly.

The trouble with computer graphics in films these days is that a computer doesn't have half the imagination of a human.

This isn't the first comic-book movie to think it's the Book of Revelations, but I wish to hell it were the last.

Parts of Hellboy are enjoyable enough, I guess, but there's way, way too much to potentially enjoy.

Seems to be a blend of X-Men and The Mummy, but even The Mummy has a more coherent mythology.

Although Perlman's presence provides the heart and soul of Hellboy, the film's fire dies down the moment he disappears from sight
