wow, that thing is massive
28 September 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

At a whopping 2 hours and 22 minutes, this documentary features EVERYthing you EVERY wanted to know about Hellboy the comic character and Hellboy the movie. Interviews with pretty much everyone (well the main players) who had to do with the film. it's a massive amount of information to take in. OK, Hellboy was a good movie, but does it warrant a documentary THIS massive (longer than the film itself) To sit down for the whole thing is daunting to say the least. However due to the size, I can only truly recommend this to die hard fans of the comic.

My Grade: B-
