Storyline Heading
Hellboy is back, and he's on fire. The legendary half-demon superhero called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue, a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Fantasy - This is a reboot of the action/fantasy film series based on the cult comic book, with David Harbour taking over the title role from Ron Perlman. Milla Jovovich fans may enjoy her change of pace villain role. Constant language and bloody violence of the hard R variety, as opposed to the original series' PG-13 tone, make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average ...a pointless retread with nothing to recommend it beyond McShane's commanding presence. Comparing it to...2004 original and 2008 sequel is like making an analogy between a Broadway production and a high school stage show. ...it's a chore to sit through

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average "Hellboy” stops being fun when it stops being funny—when it abruptly shifts gears into a more relentlessly bloody, violent mood. And eventually, the film reaches a point of extreme, overindulgent insanity. Even that might have been more tolerable, though, if the action sequences were choreographed and staged in a more thrilling manner.

USA Today Full Review
Average ...this "Hellboy” leans more into super-gory horror comedy than its predecessors, trading nuance for ripped-off limbs and boasting as much subtlety as a stone fist to the face. ...kind of all over the place, with two hours' worth of adventures (and misadventures) that never gel cohesively

Unfortunately, most of the remaining 55% felt it wasn't that great of a movie. They rated it just "good/average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Some even rated it lower.
