This new interpretation of Mike Mignola’s demon superhero, Hellboy, captures the violent and irreverent tone of the comic books rather than attempting to match Guillermo del Toro’s 2004 film (a hard act to follow).
Where GDT’s film was a cocktail of Men in Black, Indiana Jones and H.P. Lovecraft, this reboot is a lot sillier – think Van Helsing and Underworld meets Deadpool. When an immortal sorceress (Milla Jovovich) returns from the dead to baptize the world in blood – starting with modern day London – the eponymous big red dude (David Harbour) is the only one capable of halting her reign of terror. Hellboy 2019 is trashy in a good way and raises plenty of R-rated hell. Don’t compare it with the GDT and Ron Perlman films and you’ll have a gory good time.
