Another comic book film that fails to impress
"Hellboy" makes his debut on the big screen! The film is based off the Dark Horse comic character about a demon from hell, trained by the government to fight the supernatural forces of the Earth. Along with his other two mutant friends, Hellboy fights the forces of hell. The special effects were good as expected, but the story was somewhat mediocre at best. However, "Hellboy" does serve as a palatable film for the family to enjoy.
Although the visuals aren't going to be pushing the envelope of special effects, the visual effects' artists do a pretty good job for the film by animating all the demons and fire perfectly.
Alas, the story, though, is mediocre at best. The film tries to make "Hellboy" into another X-Men film where Hellboy has to protect a world that both hates and fears him, and the love story was never fleshed out. The love story for Hellboy seemed like it was a bit rushed, and viewers never saw how the relationship started.
However, despite this flaw, "Hellboy" is still a great film for the entire family to enjoy.
