I think this illustrates my problem with a lot of comic book adaptations - or any adaptation of a strongly character-driven piece, really. The movie version is almost invariably less a "[character name here] movie" and more a "movie with [character name here] in it".I loved the first movie, I thought it was great. This one is just that much better. The first one was a movie with Hellboy in it, this one is a Hellboy movie.
Let's hope Hellboy 2 bucks the trend.
