Milla Jovovich Defends 'Hellboy': "All My Raddest Films Have Been Slammed by Critics"
Things aren't going so well for the new Hellboy movie. Not only is the film getting torn apart by critics, but its opening box office numbers were disappointing, to say the least. But one of the film's stars, Milla Jovovich, could care less, coming to Hellboy's defence in a lengthy Instagram post where she says "all my raddest films have been slammed by critics."

Jovovich took to her Instagram to unload some feelings about Hellboy, saying she's been through this sort of critical shaming before, and it's nothing new. She even goes as far as saying that Hellboy will emerge as a "cult classic."

Rather speak for her, though, you can read and see her full post below:

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. Why? 1. Because of the amazing actors. David Harbour. Ian Mcshane. Daniel Dae Kim. Sasha Lane. They are all so damn wonderful and talented, the movie is worth seeing just because they're in it, especially one that's so much fun to experience as this is. 2. @mikemignola who created the #Hellboy comics helped write the script and was on set every single day to make this film as close to his vision as possible. 3. It was directed by one of the greats. #NeilMarshall who brought us "The Descent". One of the greatest horror movies ever. Trust me, you're gonna have a blast watching the new @hellboymovie. I mean, one critic said "it's a loud, gory mess only a teenager would love." HELL yea Hellboy! Let's have some fun! And with that, I wish you all a good night!

As recently reported, director Neil Marshall's Hellboy reboot brought in a disappointing $12 million USD over its opening weekend, according to U.S. box office figures. This fell far short of its modest projections of between $14 million and $20 million.

Hellboy holds a hurtin' 15% on Rotten Tomatoes and a score of 31 on Metacritic. Exclaim! also wrote a review headlined "Hellboy Is Terrible and Makes No Sense Whatsoever," with our reviewer giving it a 3 out of 10.
