Storyline

At the end of World War II, Nazi officers Karl Ruprecht Kroenen (Ladislav Beran) and Ilsa Haupstein (Biddy Hodson) start an experiment to raise the forces of Hell trough Russian dark mystic Rasputin (Karel Roden) on a Scottish island, but it's interrupted by an allied commando guided by professor Trevor "Broom" Bruttenholm (Kevin Trainor). He prevents killing the human-demonic half-blood, which was accidentally created and raises this "Hellboy", while rising to head of a secret C.I.A.-linked U.S. agency Bureau of Paranormal Research, which secretly studies and uses the occult, including supernatural freaks. As "father" Broom (Sir John Hurt) is aging, he hand-picks brilliant, sensitive Agent John Myers (Rupert Evans) as new minder-companion, as regular "warrior" Agent Clay (Corey Johnson) can't empathize and lacks flexibility mental. Hellboy (Ron Perlman) is quite a handful, regularly spotted by worried civilians on unauthorized excursions, especially to pyro-telekinetic freak friend ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

It took anywhere from five to seven hours to apply Doug Jones' make-up. It took another three hours to reverse the process. Sometimes, some of the pieces were not removed, so that it would be easier to put the costume on the next day. See more »

Goofs

When Agent Myers talks to Professor Bruttenholm about how he's not right for the BPRD he's wearing his casual clothing from earlier in the film. In previous and subsequent shots he is wearing a black suit. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: What is it that makes a man a man? Is it his origins, the way things start? Or is it something else, something harder to describe? For me it all began in 1944, a classified mission off the coast of Scotland. The Nazis were desperate. Combining science and black magic, they intended to upset the balance of the war. I was 28, already a paranormal advisor to President Roosevelt. I could never have suspected that what would transpire that night would not only effect the course of ...

Great Film- Possible Tent Pole
19 November 2004 | by hannibalwSee all my reviews

Hell Boy is a near classic of great proportion as played by the underrated Ron Perlman(Beauty and the Beast ) Perlman is an actor you probabley wouldn't recognize as he has had to wear so much facial make up in his career but he imbues 'Hell Boy' with a real humanity and a scathing wit ."How am I ever gonna get a girl when I drive around in a garbage truck ? " John Hurt as his father has little to do but that he loves Hell Boy there is no doubt having rescued him on the night he came from hell . Dr. Broom adopts the boy and they live at the Center For Paranormal Studies in New Jersey with a fish like creature and a fire starter girl who Hell Boy loves to pieces . I hope that this becomes a tent pole series for the studio as I would like to see Hell Boy in other situations . Five of 5 stars for 'Hell Boy'
