MTV.com ranked Hellboy as the #5 movie of 2004! Here’s what they had to say:
Director Guillermo del Toro (“Blade II”) really does this comix transplant up right. The movie’s a riot of furious action, luscious color, wildly imaginative set design, and ? the icing on the gargoyle ? scum-sucking Nazis, too. Ron Perlman, as the wise-cracking, stogie-smoking Hellboy, a hulking behemoth who’s switched his demonic allegiance to the fight against evil, gives one of the year’s most original performances ? he manages to project heart and soul from beneath a ton of prosthetic makeup. A fantasy classic.
