Hellboy (15)

Horror, Fantasy, Action

A fantasy action horror film in which a superhero battles an undead witch.

The critical consensus

The dehorned battler is reconfigured into a franchise figurehead – and loses all his devilish excitement.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 10/04/2019

Sweary, silly, schlocky, satisfyingly surreal.

***(*)(*)Anton Bitel, Little White Lies, 11/04/2019

More gore is fine, but there's a big hole where the film's heart should be.

**(*)(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 11/04/2019

A lurid, confusing mess that's only partially redeemed by its tongue-in-cheek humour.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 10/04/2019

Plenty of shock and gore, and David Harbour is more than worthy to wear the horns. But this is a reboot in need of a reboot.

**(*)(*)(*)John Nugent, Empire Online, 11/04/2019

Hell, yeah? Hellish, more like. Despite its lead’s best efforts, this disastrous deboot is a gore-soaked bore.
