Honestly where to begin with this one. It does an impressive amount of world building with its limited time and the pacing is tight. Special effects solid throughout and while vin is a bit monotone in some scenes you can tell he was having ball filming all of this. Overall, enjoyable and surprising in unexpected ways and a way better hellboy movie than what we got in 2019...think about it.
It could be my fondness for classic martial arts films and the sheer volume of them that I used to watch with my dad but this stands as probably my personal favorite and the one I most revisit. The choreography is amazing and the camerawork can be incredibly expressive at times.
