Director Neil Marshall’s reboot of the Hellboy film series sees David Harbour replacing Ron Perlman as the titular half-demon superhero. With the help of his powerful colleagues at the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.) and other allies, Hellboy attempts to stop an ancient British sorceress (Milla Jovovich) from destroying humanity.~Augustine Chay
This form of hellboy is okay it's good but it's not as good as the original. The storyline for it is very well done. The gentleman who they had playing hellboy...John Harbour was okay but just a little too dull in his acting. I actually like two they had playing Professor Broom, Ian McShane he made an excellent professor broom the character The voice he's just perfect the most characters he portrays. The ending was a little predictable but not predictable. It was interesting for them to find Abraham at the end of it anybody who doesn't know I'm talking about Abraham Sapien.all in all it's not like the original first two with Ron perlman playing hellboy but it is pretty decently done.if you're a fan of the first two and also fan of the comic book it's a good movie to have in your collection.
This is a reboot and not a continuation after Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, so just know that going into this movie. David Harbour is great as Hellboy (and I do like Millia Jovovich as the villian here, too). The plot seems to be a little closer to its comic book origins than the Del Toro movies, so that's a plus. The worst news here is that Abe Sapien isn't even present until the very end as a teaser, and we likely won't see a sequel due to how poorly this one performed at the box office. If you're a super hero / comic book movie fan, you'll still want to add this one to your collection. It's not as bad as some of the reviews indicate.
Disappointing reboot of the Hellboy franchise. Fairly entertaining if you don't have anything better to do and to be fair, it isn't boring. Miscast actors and inconsistent tonal shifts hurt this effort. The plot has potential but Ron Perlman is sorely missed and the new makeup for Hellboy is wrong and just looks creepy. Also, the extreme gore and F bombs seem out of place. The material worked better in the previous installments as a fantasy adventure with frightening elements than as a gory horror movie.
