Hellboy ★★★½

The movie is two hours long. What the hell, boy? I heard nothing but bad reviews of this movie when it was first released. All of the crunched numbers from the reviewers say it is a bad movie. The special effects are amazing. The prosthetic makeup is superb, especially with Hellboy's trademark frown. When I saw it on screen, I immediately thought he stepped right out from one of the comic book panels. The story does run long, which would be the biggest complaint I have to share. There are several moments of gruesome horror. The movie deserves the 'Hard R' rating, 100%.
