Hellboy Directed by Neil Marshall

Critics reviews

A film this crowded has to have some pleasures, but they mostly come in incidental details of art direction, mythological footnote or British character acting.

Marshall, a world away from the dank dread and crawling terror of his 2006 spelunking stunner, “The Descent,” directs like a dog at a squirrel convention, charging gleefully from one witlessly violent encounter to the next. Ian McShane, as Hellboy’s adoptive father, does what he can to calm the chaos, but the movie left me alternately baffled and battered.

So, Hellboy’s a mess. That’s not to say that it’s complicated, or unclear, exactly; no story filled with this many clichés can really be too confusing. But the latest adaptation of Mike Mignola’s cult comics — an attempt to reboot the successful, if short-lived, film franchise Guillermo del Toro started back in 2004 — throws so many tired plot points and revelations at us that it all feels like an exhausting blur.
