First, let me say that I am basing the 2.5 Stars score solely on the merits of this film. I am not comparing it to the other Hellboy films.
The good – faithful to the comics. A lot of the comics.
The Bad – too many storylines from the comics were used. I tihnk it would have been better to just stick with one and told that story.
The storytelling felt all over the place. Hellboy did not feel like Hellboy. He was not the Everyman coming in – he was a whiny and complaining. He jsut reacted to events and rarely felt like he was doing anything himself.
If they do go ahead with a sequel, I hope the filmmakers can work together instead of against each other (Studio interference stories do not do anything for this film).
