Better than I thought it would be, but then again that's largely because it embraced some of my favorite arcs from the comics. Ron Perlman was way better, but it was nice seeing Alice Monaghan and Ben Daimio.

This is just plain terrible. Terrible story, bad actors, God awe-full. Do not waste your time. Bad!

The monsters were very cool, but the story lacked thew same creativity. Sloppy at best, painful at its worst.

If you’re familiar with the original source material (the comic books), this is a fun nod to the multiple storylines created by Mignola over the years. Not sure if newbies will be able to recognize or appreciate the jokes or winks.

Terrible.
No redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Not even Ron Perlman could have save this mess. He made a wise decision not to be involved.

Missed Ron Perlman. Seems like they wanted to milk a cash cow that turned out to be a goat.

I, maybe, only watched 20 minutes of this dumpster fire.

RON PERLMAN SHOULD SUE
or WHAT THIS MOVIE NEEDS IS SOME DEADWOOD DIALOGUE...
Why not reboot the film that was "worth" a sequel and at least one animated film...
out of a comic.
Lead X looks to me to have completely stolen Perlman's mannerisms and
done his best to hide the theft in plain sight, and the Benneton casting makes
perfect sense in an actual metropolis like London, almost too much sense..
where's the bootblack?
Jovovich playing big bad does enough fist shaking to pull it off, in a
direct-by-numbers Meh-sterpiece cribbing most of the act pivots from the two prior films,
saving the reveal of the missing member for after the credits (thanks to Marvel for bringing
back easter-eggs) to tease a sequel, or sequ-Eh-l.

Usually it is my wife that pulls the plug on bad movies..I could not take the stupid plot and bad acting...and I am a fan of this genre. Lots of unnecessary and exaggerated gore.
Do yourself a favour and pass or make sure you have a backup movie for the night.

These are not in IMDb as this morning:

The opening sequence... an extended version in deleted scenes:

The year is 517 A.D., known as the Dark Ages and for fzcking good reason. An endless war between the armies of man and the creatures of darkness has raged across Britain. And in retribution for man's injustices to creatures, the immortal witch Vivienne Nimue had spread her deadly plague threatening to wipe mankind off the face of the Earth. And so at Pendle Hill, beneath an ancient oak tree, King Arthur... Yes, that King Arthur, and his powerful wizard Merlin, were forced to surrender to Nimue, the Queen of Blood.

You know, maybe if humans weren't so keen on killing witches and demons and such, the witches and demons and such wouldn't be so keen on killing humans.
-That's a false equivalence and you know it.
There's gotta be another way. The answer to every threat we face cannot be annihilation. There's gotta be a world where monsters don't have to hide
in the shadows, where they don't have to live in fear. Where monsters...

People believe that Arthur's lineage died with him, but it's not true. The bloodline continued when Arthur had a daughter and that daughter had a daughter, and so on. Ending with Sarah Bethany Hughes. She used to fly to the Sabbath on the back of a demon in the shape of a goat. And on Walpurgis Night, 1574, she married that demon. That very night she was taken down to hell, where she delivered a son, Anung un Rama.
-That last part, I've heard that before. What is that?
It's you... Anung un Rama. Destroyer of all things. The title you were given on the day you were born.
