With the Hellboy reboot coming out, Lionsgate tries one more time to capitalize on a franchise that didn’t do so well and also serving as an advert. In any case, I did enjoy both of these animated movies and really wish they had continued.
It’s a shame Columbus Circle wasn’t better as it has a good cast and, at its core, at least an interesting premise. Although the script does them no favors, I give a pass to the cast as they seem to struggle through stilted dialogue and contrived situations, especially a finale that flies in the face of what we watched before. Even so, I found this to be passable entertainment and enough for a quick watch on a weekend where there’s nothing else on.
