Storyline

In 1939, young Professor Bruttenholm destroyed Erzsebet Ondrushko (Kath Soucie), 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 (Sir John Hurt) has decided to investigate it himself. He takes the top B.P.R.D. Agents, Hellboy (Ron Perlman), Liz Sherman (Selma Blair), and Abe Sapien (Doug Jones), 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. Hellboy ends up battling the Queen of Witches, the goddess Hecate (Cree Summer), 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 cancelled, 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, a.k.a. 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.

Quotes

[Erzsebet confronts Broom after 60 years - he an old man, she a dessicated, skeletal vampire]
Erzsebet Ondrushko: The years have not been kind to you.
Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: Nor you.
[she strikes him to the ground]
Erzsebet Ondrushko: So frail. Time has turned you to glass. I pity you.
Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: And I you. Growing old is not the worst fate that can befall a person... but you ceased to a be a person long ago.

Hellboy Animated Blood and Iron: Another highly meh offering
9 December 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

This second of a proposed three animated outings for Hellboy follows as the team fend off vampires, werewolves and the Greek goddess Hecate.

Alike the previous movie this features the cast of the live action films and that is honestly the best thing going for it.

With a nonsensical story, a style of animation I'm simply not keen on and the fact I'm really not fond of Hellboy anyway this really didn't stand much of a chance.

The third movie was cancelled and I feel bad for fans of the franchise, but for me I'm not fussed as I couldn't dream of it exceeding my already low expectations.

For Hellboy fans this is great, for the rest of us not so much.

The Good:

Full original cast including the late great John Hurt

The Bad:

Abe looks like Dhalsim with a vitamin deficiency

Rather dumb plot

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I can't hear J. Grant Albrecht without thinking of Destroy All Humans (2005)
