Revisiting Hellboy was like seeing an old friend again after not seeing them for a long time. This and it’s sequel have basically become cult classics, and as someone who watched both a lot when I was a kid, they hold a soft spot in my heart for not just introducing me to the titular character, but also Guillermo del Toro as a filmmaker.
In no way is this movie perfect, but man does this just have so much heart and life. Even if the story isn’t always super well written or some of the effects don’t hold up, you can tell everybody involved had such a fun time making this film. It’s campy, epic, funny, atmospheric, and heartfelt all at once.
And David Harbour May look great in the upcoming reboot, but it’s gonna be hard topping Ron Perlman. Just sayin’.
