Expectations are fickle fiends. Especially for movies. It gets even harder when a remake is brought on after a successful first iteration. Oscar-winning visionary director Guillermo Del Toro made two delightfully fun Hellboy movies, starring the charming Ron Perlman. The character didn’t really need a reboot, but the world got one anyway. The new Hellboy (2019), directed by Neil Marshall and starring David Harbour, is not as terrible as everyone says.
