DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - It's a fun, action packed, comic adventure with some wisecrack humor. A couple times I felt it became a bit too corny and several times it was pretty far-fetched and a little silly. However, these things should have little impact on its target audience of young males.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good My sense is that most comic book aficionados, regardless of whether or not they are familiar with Mike Mignola's Dark Horse series, will enjoy what Hellboy has to offer. It's a throwback to the '80s, with a strong hero, well-crafted action sequences, and an undemanding storyline.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good "Hellboy" is one of those rare movies that's not only based on a comic book, but also feels like a comic book. It's vibrating with energy, and you can sense the zeal and joy in its making. Of course it's constructed of nonstop special effects, bizarre makeup and a preposterous story line, but it carries that baggage lightly; unlike some CGI movies that lumber from one set piece to another, this one skips lightheartedly through the action.

USA Today Full Review
Average With Hellboy, comic book buff/filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has crafted a fiery action picture destined to please fans of other comics-turned-adventure flicks such as X-Men. The rest of us will find ourselves left out in the cold. ...underneath the cool exterior, Hellboy doesn't make much sense.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 112 moviegoer opinions. These are decent opinions, but certainly not great. As expected, males make up the biggest group. Their opinions go down slightly as their age increases. About two-thirds of the teen males enjoyed "Hellboy" very much. About half of the remaining third thought it was an OK movie. Only a few didn't care for it. This is fairly normal and indicates a movie most will be satisfied with, but it won't likely become a blockbuster. Same for the older males and females. Most will find it enjoyable, at least to some degree.

If you're interested in seeing "Hellboy," you won't want to miss it on the big screen. The special effects are great, too bad the story wasn't.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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. 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 him 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. 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."
