In this 3rd installment of the series: Hellboy (David Hatbour), must battle the Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human race, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world
Anyone in the know, knows that this latest version of Hellboy sports a brand new cast and director. Unfortunately, that leaves fans from the first two installments without a fitting conclusion.
i, for one, really enjoyed the first two installments helmed by Guillermo del Toro. I thought that del Toro's films were the best in the superhero genre.
So how does Hellboy 2019 directed by Neil Marshall compare?
In my opinion, this third feature film is strictly for hardcore fans and will no doubt be a cult classic. But this feature film lacks the awe and wonder that del Toro brought to the previous movies. Hellboy 2019 is a decent film but it is in no way close to the greatness of the first two films.
Recommended for die hard Hellboy fans.
