It ends up simply being a franchise reboot damned to be restaged as its own bloody hell. Some things are better left dead.

If it was my call, I'd write nothing about the movie and leave this space blank for readers' notes.

This all hurtles at a relentless, unforgiving pace, glued together with many, many crunchy guitar licks. You don't so much as watch this movie as submit to being pummeled by it.
April 12, 2019
An R-rated slog that's heavy on bad attitude and creative dismemberments, and completely missing the humane core of Mignola's original story.
April 12, 2019
Watching Hellboy is my new personal idea of hell.

No one needed another Hellboy, let alone a wretched contraption whose single-word title suggests that it's an original, rather than the cynical enterprise it proves to be.
August 11, 2019
The pacing is far too quick, yet the movie's runtime comes in over two hours. Hellboy overcomplicates a fairly straightforward story in the process.
July 13, 2019
It's a depressing testament to the superhero economy that there's already a reboot of the Hellboy, franchise.

Truly, what's most frustrating about Hellboy is how, in its unevenness, it's easy to see the good parts overtaken by poor CG and an unnecessarily complicated plot.

If you like gory action shlock, you should give it a try!

Hellboy is a messy, awkwardly vulgar, macabre adventure that can't decide how campy to be, which is ultimately far more entertaining than many self-assured, boring blockbusters.

For all of its shortcomings -- like weak script and editing -- Hellboy manages to provide a fun experience full of bizarre fights and action that you won't get anywhere else. In a world of comic-book content, it stands out, for better or worse.

The film takes some familiar genre elements and mixes them up a little, delivering something that feels fresh, occasionally subversive yet -- at times -- as moving as it is outrageous. It's a comedy with plenty of smarts.
May 31, 2019
There is an amazing depth and pathos to the Hellboy comic books, but you wouldn't know it after slogging through this iteration. The character, the fans, and the cast all deserve far better than this.
May 29, 2019
The Hellboy reboot is a complete failure as far as characters, plot and emotional weight are concerned.
May 28, 2019
It feels like what it really needed was a bit more patience, attention and TLC, but there are two Hellboy films like that already.

The plot seems to have been written by a teenager who only wanted to see some gore and swearing at the theatre. [Full review in Spanish]

Marshall's forms are coarser, but they manage to impress an overwhelming dynamism especially in the battle scene with the giants. [Full Review in Spanish]

If Mignola's goal was to make a movie that was darker and grittier than the one that Del Toro created, he may have missed his mark.

Neither diabolical nor legendary. [Full review in Spanish]
