Highly Suspect Reviews: Hellboy

Hellboy Movie Review


Here’s my impression of me finding out about this Hellboy movie: “Are we really doing this? Are we really abandoning Guillermo Del Toro’s already built universe for, what, a Neil Marshall horror-heavy version with the likeable-but-he’s-no-Ron-Perlman David Harbour taking over the title role? WHY?” Always one to hope for the best and not focus on the bad expectations once I’m in the seat, I said, “Chris, you never know. This could be exactly what this beloved (?) character needed, a fresh start. Let’s find the good”. That was a tall order. Because Hellboy, rather infamously at this point, is NOT good. Not good, at all. So then we go back to the WHY. We do our best to try to make sense of what went so horribly askew here. Listen to Chris, Marco, and Ben do their best to puzzle it out.


Directed By: Neil Marshall

Starring: David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim, Thomas Haden Church, Sasha Lane
