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.
