Hellboy (2019) Movie Thread8823

Collector Darkga private msg quote post Address this user
What did I watch? This film was so underwhelming, disjointed, and immature. Just throw the whole movie away.

Ok someone say something good about it.

It looked bad in the previews. I tried watching the original a couple days ago and couldn't make it through it. I still like Hellboy 2 and have seen it a few times over the years.

@flanders @Darkga

Yeah....the preview clips that are out do not impress me. Really like the first 2. Will likely take my kid to see it and base my thoughts on his review...maybe they are aiming for a much younger audience than a guy in mid 40's?

@KatKomics This movie is not for children. There were 5 kids in my theater, all of them left crying.

It was bad. Even the "after" credits preview was sad.

I was kind of excited because I can get a discounted ticket, but then I saw the rottentomatoes is at 14%. If I go out I'll see Shazam.

Shazam was far superior to Hellboy.

SHAZAM is 1,000% better then HELLBOY. 1, 2 and 3 combined.

I'm glad to know it was not just me. I hope no one speculated on Hellboy comics in preparation for this movie.

Of course not, I've been busy speculating on Spawn, which might be equally terrible.

@Darkga I have found that the Metacritic.com "User Score" (not the metascore) has been better than IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes for determining if I should see a movie or not. A movie must be around a 5-6 (minimum) or higher, then it's worth seeing in the theater. Otherwise, wait for digital release.

Hellboy = 4.7/10
The Last Jedi = 4.4/10

Hasn't been wrong yet, although I still ended up seeing both of those...

These Hellboy movies have been well....hell for me to try and get my last Hellboy 1st appearance - Dime Press #4.

Maybe prices will come back down and I can pick this up!!

I may not have been in on Hellboy on the ground floor but was pretty close....Next Men #21 I got for around $4 (from TFAW but then shipping!!) and found the San Diego comicon issue for $5 in a back bin at a shop about 2 hours from home not too long after getting NExt Men #21.

@KatKomics well maybe this movie flop will lead to a movie rights exchange...like the Spider-Man lending, Lucas Film buyout, or the Fox merger...

Only time will tell!

Well was interested in watching this, but word of mouth hasn't been kind to this movie at all.

Was all set to watch Hellboy on IMAX yesterday until I saw the reviews.

Saw Missing Link in 3D instead.

Just got back from Hellboy and I have no idea why critics ripped this movie apart. I thought this movie was alot of fun. Very entertaining. To me, this movie is another example why I dont listen to critics.

@GAC Well, a few people in the world had to like it. That's why it didnt get a 0/10 rating. The fan reviews gave it even lower reviews than the critics - yikes!

@GAC It wasn't the worst movie I had ever seen, but I wouldnt watch it again. Definitely a D or F movie in my mind when compared to the previous Hellboy movies or otherwise.

I still paid to see it on a date night though, and had fun destroying a bucket of popcorn.

I find that strange. I guess ones expectations going in play a factor. I never go in thinking its going to be a crapfest or Citizen Kane but I do realize it's a comic book movie and by that I mean, this is an entertainment film where suspension of disbelief is required.

Hellboy has high entertainment value in my opinion.
