    As to the actual movie, it’s not as good as the first two, like, at all, but it’s still nowhere near as bad as its overly negative reception would suggest. It’s perfectly fine and serviceable, and I found myself enjoying it a lot more than I honestly expected to.

    I enjoyed it too for the gore, violence and silly one-liners but it's too disjointed to be any kind of good movie and the comparison to the Del Toro films makes it embarassing. There's a trend in all these reboots to set up a large number of things for the sequels to an extent where a lot of scenes just don't stand in their own as part of a proper screenplay anymore.

    Disjointed is a good word to describe this. I haven't finished it yet, but I was enjoying it for the most part. I liked David Harbour as Hellboy along with the one-liners so far.

    The Thomas Haden Church scene felt so outta place though. THAT felt like it was Del Toro inspired. Another thing that stood out as not working very well was Milla Jovovich as the villain. Felt like a miscast to me.

    Ended up Naying this. Unmemorable, lackluster third act. The one shot sequence with the trolls was neat, but felt like there needed more charm.

    It was oddly disturbing watching the nightmare of Hellboy ruthlessly murdering and slaughtering people. CGI also felt very unfinished at times.
