Hellboy

Action Adventure Fantasy


 

Hellboy is caught between his human and supernatural sides when an ancient sorceress comes back to life and seeks to destroy the world.

"Hellboy" is a truly awful film. The first quarter is a confusing mess, and the production assumes you already know everything about the world in which it is set. Once it realises the mistake it has made, it then proceeds to deliver overwhelming information dumps that are sleep-inducingly boring. Every key player overacts to an alarming extent, with the exception of our leading man who spends the entirety of the run time acting like a spoiled child. Adding insult to injury is the needless gore, the awful CGI and a soundtrack that is beyond distracting. Highway to hell.
