Storyline

In 1939, young Professor Bruttenholm destroyed Erzsebet Ondrushko, a female vampire who bathed in the blood of innocents to stay young. Now someone in upstate New York is trying to bring her back, and the elderly Professor Broom has decided to investigate it himself. He takes the top BPRD agents, Hellboy, Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien, who are more worried about his welfare than the return of any vampire. Their tune changes when they face a horde of ghosts, a phantom wolf pack, witches, harpies, a giant werewolf and Erzsebet herself. Hellboy ends up battling the Queen of Witches, the goddess Hecate, who wants him to embrace his true destiny, a destiny that includes the destruction of mankind. Written by IDT

Trivia

After the end credits, a short self-referential teaser for the next Hellboy Animated project is played. The working title for this, subsequently canceled, third Hellboy Animated entry was The Phantom Claw and it was suppose to feature The Lobster, a popular spin-off character from the Hellboy comics. In the comics, The Lobster aka Lobster Johnson is a violent, deadly and mysterious vigilante who operated during the 1930s fighting gangsters as well as supernatural threats. In the present day Hellboy timeline, the legend of The Lobster has gained popularity and even cult status thanks to the writings of a retired police detective, but the reading public doesn't know that his literary character is based on a real person.

Liz Sherman: [installing surveillance equipment] All right, check the signal.
Sydney Leach: Well, it's decent. But wouldn't video cables cut down on interference, though?
Liz Sherman: Haven't used them since a poltergeist hung Ralph Furtado by his heels in the Whaley House.
Sydney Leach: Really?
Liz Sherman: Occupational hazard. Motion sensor goes down there.

A definite improvement.

After being a little disappointed with Sword of Storms, Blood and Iron makes up for it with a darker story, better voice acting, and a far less irritating music score. The movie begins with Hellboy beating down a monster, which is kinda what he does, and getting the crap beaten out of him while it happens, which is also kinda what he does. Afterwards, we're treated to a surprisingly layered story involving Trevor Bruttenholm, Hellboy's "father" essentially, an old vampire, and the witch-goddess Hecate. Caught in the middle is this old priest who lost his faith, which gives the story a good grounding that Sword of Storms lacked. It's much less of a "Let's kill the bad monster" story, and brings a very human element to the equation. The story also leaves out the ham-handed character development seen in Sword of Storms, for a much grittier, more subtle, and believable portrayal. My main criticism would be the inclusion of the "human metal detector" guy. He's not particularly helpful or necessary to the story. He actually serves to water down some scenes that were building real suspense. They also could have done a better job setting up Hecate as a character. She comes off as another monster, but her motivations don't quite work for me. Overall, I think Blood and Iron is a step in the right direction, and worth seeing at least once. It's a must-see for fans of the comic book, and anyone disappointed with the live action movie.
