Rinzy Reviews ‘HellBoy’ (2019)

Release Date: April 12

Starring: David Harbor, Ian McShane, Daniel Kae Kim, Milla Jovovich, et al.

***

If you thought all David Harbour was good for was posing as Chief Hopper of Hawkins then think again. As the titular Hellboy in this reboot desperately in need of proving its existence, Harbour does more than excel, he actually gives Ron Perlman (Hellboy of the original movies) a run for his money.

In all the many ways David Harbour aids Hellboy, the movie in return doesn’t do much to justify its existence, and looks like something desperately in need of a reboot itself. The off tone, poor cinematography, and cheap CGI are the least of this movie’s worries, its main villain -Nimue- is. Played by veteran Milla Jovovich, yet Nimue looks like something much like an afterthought. Not even the sword in the throne subplot could save it.

How does this reboot compare to the original?

To put it mildly, it’s like comparing a 10-year-old’s ability to fully comprehend money maths with a middle-aged with responsibilities and expectations. It’s a disaster!

Directed by: Neil Marshall
