Milla Jovovich On Why ‘Hellboy’ Critics Should Just Fuck Off!


Neil Marshall’s (The Descent) Hellboy reboot released this week and was skewered immediately by movie critics, scoring a rotten 14% from review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. Co-star Milla Jovovich has come forward in the film’s defense.

Jovovich writes on Instagram:

It’s always stressful on opening weekend and @hellboymovie is no different. You work super hard to make something fun and entertaining and have to absorb the negative reviews by movie critics, but hey! THAT’S SHOWBIZ BABY.

All I’m gonna say before going to bed is this: All my raddest films have been slammed by critics. It’s fucking hilarious. Dazed and Confused? Seriously? Classic movie. The Fifth Element! You would have thought that was the worst movie ever made if you read the reviews in like ‘98. Zoolander? Slammed. Joan of Arc? Disaster. Resident Evil? Let’s not even go there.

Anyway, every one of those films is now a cult classic. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. And this will be too. Mark my words.

Clatto saw Hellboy this past weekend and…it isn’t great, which is a regrettable shame because there is a lot in the movie that works amazingly, namely Hellboy’s fight with giants, his scuffle with a creepy kid-eating hag, and an epic, extremely violent sequence that finds enormous monsters slaughtering civilians on city streets!

Oh…and Jovovich is hot.
