    ★★★

    Gently boring, you could even say it's more boring than gentle.
    This movie would really have benefited from a good writer spicing things up. Far too conventional, not enough interesting things happening.
    Not that funny either.

    That being said it would be difficult for me to say it was bad, it just lacked some key ingredients in the mix. And the end segment is one of the good moment too.

    It's not a please 'kill this franchise to the ground' take, I would gladly watch another movie. But please add a writer. It's too light as is.

    I was afraid of watching this after the underwhelming Crimson Peak the night before. Maybe I was going to watch a pretentious snooze fest. It would have made for a pretty big series of bad movie experiences over a short time.
    Cutting to the chase, let's just say that at the middle point of the movie I was wishing really hard that it continued on the same quality until the end. I was entranced.
    And while I can't say it…

    ★★½

    I really like Del Toro. His Blade 2 was full of great imagery, I fought with my friends about The Devil's Backbone, loved this one, Hellboy 1 was dull but enjoyable... the first big hiccup for me was Pan's Labyrinth and I should have payed attention, there is a fucking pattern here. I think I'm at the point where I sort Del Toro as a wonderful image maker but a pretty bad writer. All style and no substance.
    So Crimson…
