In fact, it is so sad, in several countries that apply strict censorship, including in Indonesia, many Hellboy scenes have been cut. But, unfortunately, it, in the end, interfered with the storyline of this film. Because many important scenes were cut. The audience was very disappointed.
As a result, after airing globally, apart from dropping at the box office, critics also gave a negative response to Hellboy. Many have compared this Lionsgate release to the two previous Hellboy films. Which got a positive response.

According to critics, Hellboy indulged in too many bloody sadistic scenes. Beheadings, limb slashing, and stabbings were constantly exploited. In fact, it doesn’t really support the storyline of the film, which was written by Andrew Cosby.
In addition, the fabric of the Hellboy story is also less strong. The plot is often jumpy. Likewise with the chemistry between the players. That looks weak. The interaction was bland. Indeed, as a refresher, there is a little humor that is tucked in through the dialogues made by Hellboy. However, it didn’t help much. In fact, impressed, the Hell Boy was too forced to be funny.

In addition to the bland story, the main antagonist in this Hellboy film, the Blood Queen, is also less enthusiastic. Milla Jovovich seems to have lost her strong charm that she often displays while playing in the Resident Evil franchise.
However, even so, that does not mean there are no positive things presented by Hellboy. The most praised is the make-up side in this $50 million budget film. Which makes the appearance of Hellboy’s face so neat and smooth. Likewise with David Harbor’s acting. Which is, arguably, better than Ron Perlman used to be. He was able to move more agile behind the Hellboy costume when compared to the previous actor.
Even though they are laughing at the onslaught of Disney and Marvel Studios, Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Films refused to give up. After the success of Aquaman (2018) at the end of 2018, in 2019, they released a superhero film again. The title is Shazam!.
Shazam release! it was deliberately chosen at the beginning of April. To avoid clashing directly with Captain Marvel (2019). Which aired in early March yesterday. And Avengers: Endgame (2019). Which will be released at the end of the month. Because it would be a suicidal move if you were desperate to complain to Shazam! with these two superblockbuster films.
In the world of comics, in fact, DC Comics has always been the market leader. Their two main superhero characters, Batman and Superman, have become global icons that almost everyone knows. In fact, perhaps, more famous than Marvel’s Avengers.
Since Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1 (which later merged with DC Comics) on April 18, 1938, the superhero theme has immediately dominated the comics world. Especially, in America. Many superhero characters from other comics were born because they were influenced by the Man of Steel.
Well, one of the superheroes inspired by Superman is Shazam!. The character created by CC Beck and Bill Parker, originally, was not from DC Comics, but from Fawcett Comics.
