As a huge Hellboy fan I wish that I could say this movie was good but it wasn’t the VFX were okay and the sound Fxs were awesome but the story was all over the place and the pacing was terrible. David Harbour as hellboy worked but I wish he was a little funnier and more enthusiastic like how Ron Pearlman was. If your a hellboy fan is it best to still the original 2.

Two hours of my life that I won't get back on some director who doesn't even know the story and decides to make this sad excuse of a movie.

movie was actually great when it came down to visuals and being a remake. Had a decent story and they added a good bit of blood gore scenes lol

His face is not good. The make up is bad. The old hellboy is a lot better.

I'm easy to make happy when it comes to movies... They're entertainment and they served their purpose if I watched all of it. In other words, I don't take them too seriously. However, this movie was disappointing in every aspect. It didn't make sense, they changed the actors, wasn't a continuation of the previous... I had more questions about why the actors did than wanting to know what was going to happen next. I absolutely loved Hellboy 1 & 2. This was not what I expected. Don't waste your time or money! Seriously...

Felt like made-for-tv quality. As much as I like the Hellboy franchise, it may be time to let it finally rest. Was a little creepier and more gory than I expected, like some pasty gamer boy was given reigns over the effects. Supporting characters were weak. Milla Jovovich and Daniel Dae Kim are capable of much more.

Hellboy does London. Save your money. Best parts are in the trailers. Cheesy costumes. Looks like it was filmed by an amateur in some scenes. Poorly done gore just for shock value. Stillborn dialogue. Actors are talented but have nowhere to go. Netflix wold have made this better. Just an yet bloody mess even Ian and Mia couldn't save this hellishly poor excuse for a reboot. Very sad. Had high hopes.

Gory, very simple plot, irrelevant acting and just plane. Worth watching only at Cinemax one of this Sats at 2am when you can fall asleep and just change channels to burn time, definitely not worth the ticket price

I dont know what the problem all these other people are having with the film. to me, this was a great Hellboy action romp. Lot's of great imagery from the comics, and while some people may not like how quick paced it is, i felt it lept the movie interesting for the entire time. It was much better than all the needless romance scenes and constant talking of the Del Toro shoved into his films. A lot less plot holes too.

Only thing good about this movie was T-Mobile subsidizing this to $4... and even that was way too much to charge for this. I feel sorry for the actors since this failure is because of the director and writers.

Had lots of action and decent to good CGI. The story was all over the place and did not mesh well. Lacked true character development. To be honest it probably would have been better if it was a tv series.

If you read hellboy comics then you know how this movie is. Its based on the comic I truly like it and the stars who was in the movie.

It was not faithful to the comics or the character of hellboy himself. Hellboy himself is no longer the relatable funny jerk as you saw in the Del Toro movies. Just skip and watch the Del Toro movies on Netflix.

Characters repeatedly yell jokes from offscreen or while their backs are turned to the camera. They are, almost without exception, not funny. And they’re indicative of a movie that feels like it was worked and reworked in the editing room almost to its literal death.

It's just lousy. Bloated, vastly less funny than it aims to be and misguided in key design choices even when it scores with less important decisions, the film does make bold choices that might've paid off under other circumstances. But these aren't those circumstances.

Between the overblown poor CG, witless dialogue and pervasive, numbing violence, the new Hellboy deserves its own special circle in Dante’s inferno.
