Milla Jovovich rants vs ‘Hellboy’ criticism

Milla Jovovich—INSTAGRAM

Actress Milla Jovovich took to Instagram last week to defend her new film, the fantasy-action flick “Hellboy,” from a barrage of criticism.

“It’s always stressful on opening weekend and [‘Hellboy’] is no different,” the “Resident Evil” star said in the caption of her selfie. “You work super hard to make something fun and entertaining and have to absorb the negative reviews by movie critics. But, hey, that’s show biz, baby.”


Jovovich, who has been acting since the late ’80s, added, “All I’m gonna say before going to bed is this: All my ‘raddest’ films have been slammed by critics. It’s f**king 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 ’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.”

She listed reasons to back up her prediction, among them her “amazing” costars, which include David Harbour and Ian McShane.


She also cited the involvement of creator Mike Mignola, who helped with the script; and director Neil Marshall (“one of the greats”).

“Trust me, you’re gonna have a blast watching the new ‘Hellboy.’ I mean, one critic said ‘It’s a loud, gory mess only a teenager would love.’ Hell, yeah … Let’s have some fun!” —OLIVER PULUMBARIT
