  • Hellboy is on fire with scares and laughs and del Toro’s visionary dazzle. It’s the tenderness that comes as an unexpected bonus. show more

  • The movie has a self- deprecating sense of humor and a strong emotional core that vaults it above most action movies that come out this time of year. show more

  • Hellboy's cheeky attitude and snarky dialogue, specifically Perlman's snidely funny lines, are the highlights. show more

    The movie was a movie that I know was going to be good. The Characters were well developed, Ron Perlman's Hellboy was awesome and funny, and the Action scenes were really cool. Only one problem, to me the sequel was better but I give it a strong 4 and a half out of 5.

    As a superhero devotee, I like almost all superhero movies, their comics, and anything that is about heroes. And Hellboy is one in my list (I have buncha my fav heroes too!!)! That movie is sure is awesome (and the second one is great, and a much better- check out his Big Baby!)! Hellboy's a red demon who was rescued by the US gov't to the Earth from the Nazis and hired as a BPRD detective. Plus, he has a heart of gold! And I read his comics too (as always). I course Ron Perlman was a great match for him. He fights evil! And I love the way good monsters beat other monsters (just like the Hulk vs. Abomination). Anyway. That movie ROCKS!
