Just an animated version of the prologue you see at the start of Hellboy 2.
25 May 2012 | by (ukwitchcountry) – See all my reviews

Not much worth saying, really, it's just pretty much a scene-for-scene animation of what you see at the start of the movie. Very similar to, but not as good as the animated epilogue of Hb 2. I don't know if they ever intended to use this in the actual film, but if so, then they definitely made the right decision in not choosing it. Stuff like this is fun to watch as an extra on a DVD, but in an actual movie at the cinema? No way, just wouldn't fly with an audience. I think the animated part of the prologue in the movie, the "fairytale" that Professor Broom tells the boy version of Hellboy, is far more visually impressive and interesting then this. So yeah, this is good, but nothing new. I would say to only watch if you would like to see something similar to the comic book style of the epilogue. Good day.
