The Hellboy movie takes its story from more than one Hellboy comic. The meat of the story comes from the "Seed of Destruction" storyline, but the rest is taken from the "Right Hand of Doom" and "Box Full of Evil" short stories. The movie also contains little homages to other stories such as "The Corpse" and "Pancakes". See more »
In Grigory Rasputin's lair, Hellboy and Manning are proceeding slowly and carefully through a narrow passage lined with spikes, not only to make it through without being hurt by the spikes, but to sneak up on Kroenen, who is sitting in a chair in the room at the end of the passage listening to music. Manning negates the possibility of either of these things happening when he cuts the back of his left hand on a spike and exclaims "Ouch!", which Kroenen hears. However, when he and Hellboy make it into the room and see that Kroenen is no longer sitting in the chair, Manning says to Hellboy "Hey, it really went deep", and shows him the bloody cut, which is now near the tip of his left index finger.

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'
