WhenÃ‚Â I first saw commercials for HellboyÃ‚Â I jumped to the wrong conclusion (I had never heard of the comicÃ‚Â and assumed it was all just demonic). But when friends told me how great it was & that it actually had a good message,Ã‚Â I decided to give it a try.
First of all, Ron Perlman was amazing as Hellboy. He was suave, funny,Ã‚Â and endearing.. all while looking like a demon.. quite a feat in itself! The supporting cast was great too.
The best part of this movie was the deeper message that was a part of the story.Ã‚Â Most comic book movies have their own special message, but some just have themes… Batman: revenge, Spider-man: Ã¢â‚¬Å“With great power, comes great responsibility,Ã¢â‚¬Â X-Men: prejudism/equality, Daredevil: justice, etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ but HellboyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s seems to run deeper. Maybe itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just because what we seem to hear nowadays is just Ã¢â‚¬Å“You are just a product of your environmentÃ¢â‚¬Â and that Ã¢â‚¬Å“You can blame parents for how you turn out.Ã¢â‚¬Â (Give me a break.) Whereas, Hellboy preaches that you are the choices you make. And you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t blame anyone else for the person you turn out to be. Hellboy faces the ultimate good versus evil. What he knows is right/good versus what he was born for/his so-called Ã¢â‚¬Å“destiny.Ã¢â‚¬Â
IÃ‚Â love going to see movies when I have little-to-no expectations & being pleasantly surprised.
Bring on Hellboy 2!
