Demonic fun, but scarier than prior installment.

Audience Reviews for Hellboy: Blood and Iron

Closer to the comic than the movies but it feels more like a bad episode of the Real Ghostbusters.

Even more enjoyable than the last Hellboy animated encounter. This time adding Hurt's Professor Broom and further establishing their own continuity adds a more heartfelt undertone to all the proceedings. It's also nice to see every character get to play the hero for a little while. The monsters look great and we get a better sense of the mythic world in conjunction with our own. It's sad that some of these ideas wont be seen in live action as their are some wonderful ideas that I would love to see Del Toro interpret. Again this is one for the fans who want to see an extra Hellboy adventure as I doubt it will appeal to the skeptics.

The stories of Mike Mignola never get old and neither does seeing Hellboy animated. Blood and Iron is one of those animations that is geared more towards adults as it has a dark feel to it. This isn't rated R, but it sure as h*** isn't rated G.

As usual the story for this Hellboy adventure rides high on science fiction and that is what makes this series so entertaining. Blood and Iron focuses way more on story rather than the action. The run time is only 75 minutes and the action doesn't happen until 2/3 of the way in. Fortunately, the first 2/3 of the film is still good. The story jumps back and forth between the past and the present multiple times. What makes this even more interesting is that the scenes that take place in the past appear in reverse order, going back further and further in time with each new scene.

You do have to wait a while for the action, but you will get your fill at the end. Abe Sapien gets in on a bunch of the fights and Liz Sherman gets a chance to use her pyrokinesis to take down some baddies. Hellboy has the most intense fight when he battles the goddess Hecate. This is one fight that deserves to be in live action.

Once again the original actors, Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Doug Jones, and John Hurt, return to do the voices for their respective characters. John Hurt has a big role as Professor Broom, while Peri Gilpin only has a few minutes with BPRD agent Kate Corrigan

This is definitely another good watch for Hellboy fans. "Destiny is overrated!"
