The previews made it seem a bit Guy Richie Does Hellboy, which seems v. unlike the comic

just to be clear, this is not a good movie. and there are def bits of that, though if anything more Matthew Vaughn than Guy Ritchie. i mean, there are bits of everything. you could cut a trailer that made this thing look like Attack the Block. my take is just, huh, it's not as bad as I expected.
the fatal flaw is that the producers think bc HELLBOY is a comic book, Hellboy has to be a superhero. i'd hoped this one would steer away from the CGI action crap and toward the horror/pulp/melancholy/weird tale elements but aside from one or two shots, nope.

I remember at the very least The Golden Army (which I only saw that once, back when) looked gorgeous. From its trailers this one looks like a CGI public toilet.

an overhaul of the soundtrack alone would make this 50% better

Yeah wasn't great was it. & it seems to want to be the first of several. Seemed like a lot of lines were off rhythm or something. Wonder how many people stayed for the post credits scenes.
