But in his haste to distance himself from del Toro's version, by sticking more to the comics, he trades the wit and fun of the original for something darker and much more violent, and it just doesn't have the same impact.

This version of Hellboy is chock full of blood and cussing - and the inclusion of Ian McShane (as Hellboy's pop, Professor Broom) is the best decisions. McShane is always fun to watch - better to listen to - and he adds a nice dramatic touch - along with …
