    I’ll give it a shot. May even see it in a theater since Del Toro isn’t attached. I want to like him, but his work is just too CGI dependent. That shit is like crack to him. He just can’t help himself. Neil Marshall on the other hand generally delivers the goods.

    Anyone check it out this weekend?

    Apparently this was a bit of a Fantastic Four situation, where the film's problematic shoot and in-fighting between creatives was leaked on opening weekend: https://www.thewrap.com/hellboy-david-harbour-neil-marshall/amp/

    Reviews have been poor, with a 15% on Rotten Tomatoes. It was expected to be this weekend's big theatrical release, but it was actually outperformed by the comedy Little.

    Even though I have AMC A-List and can catch an IMAX showing for free, I think I'm going to sit this one out and save myself for The Curse Of La Llorona IMAX and Teen Spirit next weekend. I do like Sasha Lane though. I was never that enthusiastic about the old Hellboy movies either.

    I went to this on opening day. The violence was over the top and the visuals/CGI worked for the most part. The thing that bothered me was all the stupid comic dialog from Hellboy. I knew it would be that way from the trailer but it still bugged me. This one is so effects heavy that seeing it on a big screen really is the best option. Not a great film but there are a lot worse movies to spend your time on.

    The trailers were enough to tell me to stay away from this. I was surprised when I heard it was R rated (even in Australia which is rare) as it looked like it was marketed towards teens. I'll watch this when I can download it.

    I like the director so I'm curious about the movie. But I read that they tried to take the project away from him or something to that nature.

    Yeah I'm a fan of the Director, it's a shame the film has gone through so much shit and not done very well, for him, but more importantly R rated movies, Deadpool opened the door, this may have just closed it.

    I heard they were going to try the Spawn comic character again. I assume that will be R rated. I wish I kept those comics as they are probably worth something now with the possibility of a new movie.
