At the Osiris Club, Dr. Edward Carp asks Hellboy (of his right hand), “Does it do anything special?” Yes. It has three fingers, the middle one being “the bird” which director, Neil Marshall, and writer, Andrew Cosby, manage to give to the audience for the entire 2 hour runtime of this film.

    1. This time round “shitty” modifies the word movie, not detail.

      David Harbor, who plays Hellboy, did a good job. Problem is, his performance was wrapped in crap. So, as the saying goes, you can’t polish a turd.

      The problem is Guillermo del Toro had the perfect sensibilities to bring the comic to the screen. This time around it was just a special effects fest without substance. Don’t get me wrong, I can be all for the mindless Summer flicks, but Hellboy started off with more and so this was just disappointing.

      But, that’s just my opinion. And we know that opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one and they all stink.

      Except mine.

      1. Well, this is a movie outside my genre sensibilities so I can’t give my opinion; I’ll trust yours though since it seems to reliably smell like roses. 🌹👃✅
