A good, solid effort. It is very amusing to find out that Agent Myers is partial to one of my favorite foods, as well. The start of the novel has the photographer on the raid Bruttenholm lead against the nazis in World War Two reminiscing about that very first photo of Hellboy that he had taken.
Then the story unfolds from there. This is all well handled, and the movie follows the book pretty much identically, it seems. No reason to avoid this if you like Hellboy, it is fine.
