to me,this is animated Hellboy feature is a mixed bag.firstly, i thought the story was pretty slow.the concept was interesting,but it didn't translate well onto the screen.some of the animation was pretty good,and some of it was pretty poor.the fight scenes were pretty good,i'll admit,and there were some funny bits.the voice acting was good,but it should be,since the same a lot of the actors in the live action features are in this one.i also found that the story,in addition to not being that interesting,was overly complicated and got bogged down quite a bit.there are some things which don't really seem to have context,and could have been left out.still,it wasn't anywhere near the worst movie i've seen.for me,Hellboy Animated: Sword of Storms is a 5/10
