Hellboy - Call of Darkness
USA, 2019 | Length: 120min | FSK: 16 | Director: Neil Marshall Cast: David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane

After Guillermo del Toro's two blockbuster films in 2004 and 2008 based on the popular Dark Horse Comics character, the big, red, tough-talking hellspawn is back, and he's on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola's seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (Harbour; TV's "Stranger Things") called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Jovovich; "Resident Evil"), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world. In a season of endless comic book superheroes, this stellar sequel is fabulously imaginative, visually sumptuous, dramatically complex, and blended with director Neil Marshall's ("The Descent") delightfully British flavor of comedy.
