Secular Movie Critics
…Marshall and screenwriter Andrew Cosby went overboard with their R-rating, introducing so much gore and profanity that it, quite frankly, gets dull. The flat performances and incoherent story do not help matters. …
Alan Zilberman, The Washington Post
…frenetic and undercooked, full of limb-hacking, eye-gouging monster battles as well as an atmosphere of apocalyptic grunge that signifies next to nothing…
Owen Gleiberman, Variety
…gory, juvenile, and completely unnecessary…
David Sims, The Atlantic
…It's just lousy. …
John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
…Exuberantly gross and proudly ridiculous…
Vince Mancini, Uproxx
…“Hellboy” is a thin, clumsy, and charmless attempt at rebooting… populated by forgettable characters motivated by confusing stakes, cheaply executed visuals, and distracting editing…
Meg Downey, IGN
…lands with a thud that’s loud and dark — but almost instantly forgettable…
Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
…The race for worst movie of the year is heating up. …This awful, disgusting, unfunny, idiotically plotted comic book flick offends the senses as much as the rankest subway car on the hottest summer day.…
Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post
…This Hellboy leans more into super-gory horror comedy than its predecessors, trading nuance for ripped-off limbs and boasting as much subtlety as a stone fist to the face…
Brian Truitt, USA Today
…Over the course of two hours, the mania becomes exhausting and numbing…
Tasha Robinson, The Verge
…this is a reboot in need of a reboot…
John Nugent, Empire
…It couldn’t be more boring than this. …
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian (UK)
…In the end, the movie leaves us stuck with unmoving drama and increasingly numbing carnage…
Tom Russo, The Boston Globe
…The insanity was almost incomprehensible… a bloodthirsty zest for grime and gore… You don't so much as watch this movie as submit to being pummeled by it. …[2]
Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
…At two hours, “Hellboy” feels closer to three. And yet there still seems to be something missing.
Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
