Directed by Guillermo Del Toro
Born in the flames of hell sixty years ago during World War II, Hellboy (Ron Perlman) was brought to Earth by evil madman Grigori Rasputin (Karel Roden) to perpetrate evil. Destined to be a harbinger of the apocalypse, Hellboy was instead rescued by Allied Forces led by Professor Broom (John Hurt), founder of the clandestine B.P.R.D. (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense), who raised him like a son and developed his extraordinary paranormal gifts. Learning of his dark origins, Hellboy struggles to understand his identity and the nature of his soul. Ultimately, Hellboy becomes an unlikely champion of good, battling the evil forces that threaten our world.
Born in the flames of hell, half-demon Hellboy (Ron Perlman) becomes an unlikely champion of good, battling evil forces that threaten our world.

All around great movie.
If the phrase “demon fights evil with his pyrokinetic girlfriend and merman friend” doesn’t interest you, then this isn’t your movie.
This has always been a favorite of mine. I had never even heard of the comics before watching it and can honestly say the movie stands on its own. All around a great film. We miss you John Hurt.
it's freaking Hellboy! what more do you need to know?
Shame part 3 never happened but am anticipating the reboot.
