Early reactions for Hellboy have admittedly not been good, and critics are going at the film like it’s going to be the biggest flop of the year. While I thought the movie was actually a good bit of fun, Milla Jovovich, who played the main villain of the film, believes that the film is going to go down as a cult classic and that the critics are wrong about Hellboy.
This was her post on IG:
It’s worth noting that not only the critics were against this, but the timing as well. Besides Hellboy coming out in the same month as Shazam! and Avengers: Endgame, it had to release on the same weekend as Star Wars Celebration—so you can imagine nobody was talking about the film when it came out.
Hopefully the film manages to get a decent audience before Endgame comes and absolutely decimates the box office. Despite what critics say, the movie was still a good bit of fun. Sure, the story wasn’t the strongest point, but the creature designs and practical effects were fantastic, and David Harbour makes for a great Unwilling Harbinger of the Apocalypse; I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Catch Hellboy currently in theaters.
