So I went and saw Hellboy, and I really liked it. It’s not anywhere near as amazing as the comic, but it’s a good flick. The plot feels more like it was lifted from a Lovecraft book than it does a Mignola story, but Ron Perlman looks awesome as Hellboy. Some of the CG (okay, a lot of the CG) sucked, but overall I liked it. Out of the recent spate of comic book movies I’ve seen – X-Men, X-Men 2, Spiderman, The Hulk, and now Hellboy – I’d certainly say it was head and shoulders above the rest, save for X-Men 2.
