There is so much that bothers me about the direction of this movie. The story is extremely predictable, just all over the place and consisting of so many unnecessary characters. Not to mention many subplots all seemingly introduced for practically no reason or payoff, the CGI is laughable, the makeup job on Hellboy himself is, it is just horrible. I mean, don’t they realize that cameras shoot in super-mega-ultra HD+ 8K now?
Also, David Harbour is just not good as Hellboy. He acts almost so nonchalantly that you get the feeling he doesn’t even want to be playing the character. At two hours long it’s overly drawn out and as a result is boring as fuck. Sadly the constant cheesy one-liners and garbage storyline negate any cool factor that this movie could have had. Only about one combined minute of this entire film is cool, and that’s basically all of the action sequences.
Trust us, this is one the whole family can skip.
Is it Endgame yet?
