In the final days of World War II, the Nazis attempt to use black magic to aid their dying cause.

Joining the Allied forces, Hellboy eventually grows to adulthood, serving the cause of good rather than evil.

More Info:
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Hellboy just might end up being one of the best movies you see this year.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    One of the most poetic comic-book adaptations to come along in years, yet it never loses its sense of lightness and fun -- del Toro gives it just enough screwball nuttiness to keep it from bogging down.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Guillermo del Toro is in a class with Peter Jackson as a fan-boy who gets it--a brilliant filmmaker who has a kind of metabolic connection to horror and sci-fi that helps him transform secondhand genre material into something deep and nourishing. Del Toro reaches into himself and finds the Wagnerian grandeur in schlock.

  • Richard Harrington

    Del Toro moves his story along with unrelenting energy and wit while introducing the opposing parties with admirable efficiency.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Surprisingly smart, graphically faithful live-action adaptation of the Mike Mignola series

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    The movie's got a heart as warm as hellfire.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • John Patterson

    One of the sturdier superhero movies of the last couple of years, with monsters and effects and diabolical baddies to spare, a heart as big as a house and a love story that actually gets its hooks in you.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Mr. del Toro lets loose with an all-American, vaudevillian rambunctiousness that makes the movie daffy, loose and lovable.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Played by Ron Perlman, he's the most magnetic action hero I've come across in a long while.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Travers

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

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The screenplay has flashes of real wit, and Perlman is perfect in the title role.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    There are other filmmakers who might have been drawn to a comic book as enchantingly ridiculous as Hellboy. But there are none who would have turned in a sleek $60 million picture as daringly silly, playful and imaginative as this one.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    Hellboy may be a big, noisy goof of a comic-book action film, but love is in the dank, dark, subterranean air as the bulky red-hued palooka tries to win the heart of the pyrokinetic beauty Liz Sherman.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The film - despite being a half-hour too long - is a rocking, rolling supernatural spectacle.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    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.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    So forget about taking anyone under 12. But if you want to see what a benign demon looks like when he's eating nachos and unwinding to Al Green, this is the movie for you.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Hellboy likely won't be the best comic-to-screen adaptation this year, but, squared off against its early-season challenger, Marvel's "The Punisher," this is the winner.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Sara Brady

    If the film's love triangle feels a little silly and the arch-villains a little over the top, it's all secondary to del Toro's passionate immersion in Hellboy.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Hellboy is, to borrow a phrase, one helluva good time.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Directed by Guillermo del Toro with a colorfully kinetic visual imagination that seldom lets up.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Pretty much impossible not to like a little, but it's also hard to like a lot. There's a fantastic film to be made from this material, but now, the burden of making it falls to a sequel.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    To his credit, del Toro does not flinch from the ridiculous. But he is equally sensitive to Hellboy's pulp poetry.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    An enjoyable if somewhat neutered defender of the free world. Make no mistake: Hellboy still has a hide as hard-boiled as Lee Marvin in "The Dirty Dozen," but now he's also wearing a smile.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    Has more than enough across-the-board appeal to attract mainstream auds unfamiliar with source material.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    While the film ably thrusts longtime fans of Mignola’s highly stylized artwork and newcomers alike into the world of that ol' debbil Hellboy, the film suffers from both scattershot character development and a serious case of H.P. Lovecraft overdose.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    Surprisingly enjoyable, as adaptations of cult comic books go, thanks to a sense of humor all too rare in the genre, winning performances by Ron Perlman and Selma Blair, and a sweet romance of the kind that made "Spider-Man" a richer experience than its competitors.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    It's a treat because, making no apologies for the source material, director Guillermo del Toro lets his picture gorge on power bars of pop energy, sugared with sprinkles of playful humour, and, at least twice, laced with a visual style so piercingly keen that horror morphs into beauty. Not bad for a pulpy outing.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Will dazzle you while establishing the world in which it takes place. After that, you may wonder whether Guillermo del Toro got amnesia halfway through.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    Hellboy might not have the name-recognition factor of the Spider- or Batmen, but Guillermo del Toro brings the audience swiftly up to speed on artist-writer Mike Mignola's comic book anti-hero.

    Empire Full Review
  • William Arnold

    For all its f/x pageantry, it is rather tired, as if it's the third sequel of a franchise, not the initial episode.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Standard-issue superhero movie -- except that writer-director Guillermo del Toro, taking his cue from "Hellboy" comic book creator Mike Mignola, brings a wicked sense of humor to this particular monster mash.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mark Caro

    Hellboy's adventures may take him to you-know-where and back, but the movie remains in limbo.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Arguing that you shouldn't expect rich characterization from a comic-book movie misses the point: Vivid relationships separate the graphic novels from the funnies and, in the end, spectacular set design is just window dressing.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Hellboy is as much a wreck as "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" or "The Punisher," coming and going in two weeks, and as much a bore as "The Hulk."

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    A perfect fit in the category of instant classic, and, not incidentally, fits the profile of super-profitability. Bursting the bonds of its genre, Hellboy fills the screen with gorgeous imagery, vertiginous action and a surprising depth of feeling.
