Today, April 11, the film “Hellboy” is released, which tells another fairy tale about the struggle for good
Andrew sat down at the screenwriter's table for the new HellboyCosby, who managed to make his mark with the script for the film “Two Smoking Barrels.” According to the plot, the Bloody Queen Nimue decided to resurrect and take revenge on humanity for its suffering, awakening a great evil that will destroy people. Hellboy is not happy with this and goes to England to stop the witch.
Visual and atmosphere
Like Cosby’s previous works, “Hellboy” will not delight the viewer with cool plot twists or a unique story, but it will surprise the viewer by justifying its age rating.
Every battle with enemies turns bloodya mess that is shown in as much detail as possible. Sometimes you even begin to feel nauseous from the verisimilitude of the drawn intestines, blood and other meat. Monsters can actually return some adults to childhood, when they were afraid of Baba Yaga and other fairy-tale villains.
Thanks to musical accompaniment every battlelooks even more brutal. At some point I even caught myself thinking that the Doom game deserves such a film adaptation. Here you will find heavy rock, huge monsters, and liters of blood - everything is according to the canons.
Still, the bloody special effects are not distractingfrom the main characters. Yes, they are caricatures, but moderately funny and pretentious. The film doesn't try to seem smarter or more epic than it is, but simply entertains the viewer. Hellboy, played by David Harbor, jokes even in the most dangerous situations, but this does not make him just another “cool hero”. That very case when you believe that the character is hard or in pain, but sadness...
At the same time, the Bloody Queen, played byMilla Jovovich failed to cope with the task of universal evil. Against the backdrop of huge and scary monsters, she looks too harmless and human, even despite the scenes where she uses force.
The bottom line
“Hellboy” is definitely not worth going to for children and peoplewho are not ready to watch monsters and bloody battles. But strange adults, as well as fans of Hellboy, Doom and “popcorn action films” should pay attention to the picture. At the very least, you'll see spectacular battles, great special effects, and listen to some pretty good jokes.
