Hellboy (2019)

US 121m, Colour
Director: Neil Marshall; Cast: David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim, Thomas Haden Church

Like Marc Webb’s 2012 Amazing Spider-Man, Marshall’s reboot of Hellboy is entertaining, but is still largely unnecessary. Unfortunately for the franchise, it is also inferior to the previous films made by Guillermo del Toro. While film’s R-Rating gives Hellboy a little more room to express himself, David Harbour’s performance is much less appealing than Ron Pearlman’s more likeable characterization of this great comic book anti-hero. Perhaps the best that can be said about this production is that the general response may have been more favourable if Del Toro’s Hellboy films had never been made (Klaus Ming July 2019).
