Before watching this film I'd never understood how people could walk out of the cinema during a movie they'd paid good money to see. Well this very nearly drove me too it. Towards the end of the film it struck me how I was preparing shopping lists, thinking about games I was playing and even planning an essay I had to write instead of watching this disgraceful insult to cinema.
I like Ron Perlman, I'd never heard of Hellboy before I watched it and I went in with a clean slate, expecting to be entertained. Instead, this behemoth of boredom weighing in at just over two hours turned out to be one of the most unproductive experiences of my life. I honestly don't get it. Del Toro isn't a bad director, but he's managed to make Ron Perlman extremely detestable and dull in this film. I cannot believe we're in for a sequel. This film always comes to mind whenever someone asks me for the 'worst films I've ever seen'.
