I liked David Harbour as HB. He was good. His HB was well in line with the character (movie, and comics-wise, at least as far as the first 4 trades I've read).

The rest of the movie is...not good.

It has none of the charm of the others (which, in itself can be fine. It's a different set of stakes for this movie).

But, it has no charm. It's vulgar to the point of grotesque in the splays of blood, murder, carnage, and death. It's...unsettling to see. Not that I have a weak stomach, but the manner to display it as such is simply gruesome, and not anything I wish to highlight my day with.

How's this for rankings? I won't purchase this movie. I won't rewatch it again if/when it comes on TBS or TNT. I won't walk out of the room if it's playing at a friends' place, but I'd rather go do something else.

Well damn. I was hoping the trailer was .... a little .... misleading(?) to the quality and enjoyment level I could expect, but this doesn't sound like that is the case.
Bad trailer showcasing a bad movie

Sounds like I'll be skipping it.

Hey Jimmy, do you agree with THESE sentiments as to why it was so bad?
