User Score: 53/100


A demon, raised from infancy after being conjured by and rescued from the Nazis, grows up to become a defender against the forces of darkness.

Hellboy, born in the flames of hell 60 years ago during World War II, Hellboy (Ron Perlman) was brought to Earth by evil madman Grigori Rasputin (Karel Roden) to perpetrate evil. Hellboy destined to be a harbinger of the apocalypse, Hellboy was rescued by Allied Forces led by Professor Broom (John Hurt), founder of the clandestine B.P.R.D. (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense), who raised Hellboy like a son and developed his extraordinary paranormal gifts. Despite his dark origins, Hellboy becomes an unlikely champion of good, battling the evil forces that threaten our world

At the B.P.R.D., Hellboy becomes part of an unlikely family that includes the telepathic "Mer-Man" Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) and Liz Sherman (Selma Blair), who is pyro-kinetic. Hellboy is hidden from the very society they are assigned to protect, they stand as a key line of defense against Rasputin - who seeks to reclaim Hellboy to the dark side and use his powers to bring about Armageddon. As Broom says of the B.P.R.D., "Make no mistake about it, there are things out there that go bump in the night. We’re the ones who bump back." 

Holy shit! Hellboy is so incredibly bad ass, it’s unbelievable. I can see why some people might not like Hellboy, but I usually don’t like those people anyway. Hellboy is so funny, and badass, and what else do you want in a guy? Del Toro is a great director, he did great with Blade 2 and now this. All I got to say is this movie is great. The only thing it doesn’t have is T&A, but it’s aimed for a young audience so what can you do.
