My wife and I went to see Hellboy last night. Humph. I was disappointed. The hightlights were the art direction, which was very consistent and retro-cool, and Ron Perlman was a fabulous choice for Hellboy.
However, there was little to no character development in a script that really called for some. Hellboy is supposed to be a much more tragic figure than he comes across as because of the lack of characterization. And John Hurt's professor was totally one-dimensional.
A pretty film, and worth a viewing, but I won't rush right out after the DVD when it comes out.
