Hellboy and the B.R.P.D. have to stop the impending plague being threatened by the Blood Queen.
Special effects were good, albeit CGI feeling.
Same tone as original two films.
David Harbour did a decent job as the new Hellboy..
Plot development woes, just like the other two Hellboy films.
The Blood Queen is relegated to the long list of forgettable and underdeveloped antagonists.
Special effects lost the hand-fashioned feel of the previous two instalments.
I enjoyed this newest instalment or reboot of Hellboy. Whichever it is, I don’t care. It had the same feel and vibe, with Hellboy being sarcastic and smug no matter the situation. It could have been Ron Perlman at any point, really. I know it’s a Hellboy film, but boy do the other characters feel underwhelming. Luckily, Ian McShane makes any character cool and Milla Jovovich is always a fun draw. I’m presently unsure if we’ll ever see a sequel to this iteration, but I enjoyed it enough to say I’d see a follow-up. If you liked the other two, you’ll find things to like about this one.
