The Second World War. The Nazis suffer one crushing defeat after another. As a result of the study of occult rituals in a super secret laboratory, scientists working for the fascist regime succeed in raising the Demon of Hell from oblivion, which should help turn the tide of the war.
But a detachment of allies secretly enters the science lab and turns this mystical and formidable weapon against the Nazis. However, none of the participants in the experiment suggests that the gates of the other world after opening will prove to be beyond human control, and they will have to face creatures even more dangerous and unpredictable than the Demon of Hell.

Since I became interested in the work of Guillermo Del Toro, I just had to try again to see Hellboy. The first attempt in the past failed. This is due to the fact that Rasputin appears in the film (the imperial monk is pitching) and the protagonist himself is funny, after that the film didnt want to be watched than the first viewing actually ended, with associations about Anastasia (cartoon), where Rasputin also gloated.
Now, having learned better Del Toro and his style, it was necessary to overpower himself and overpower the film, maybe the thought is here, and most importantly the finale will be performed according to Guillermo, it turned out that it was not easy to persuade the producers in 2004, maybe in the sequel. Although the film cannot be called a successful one, apparently the producers were in vain trying to stop being realized in Guillermo’s Hellboy. 66 million eternally green for Guillermo has a huge budget, one of these will not be able to, therefore, he finished the picture according to the commercial plan of cunning … smart producers, this, of course, was not the Labyrinth of Faun, where he made a masterpiece for pennies compared to Hellboy.
This time the childÂs character appears on the screen, a 9-year-old boy talking on equal terms with Hellboy and even giving him advice, the scene is really (as already noted in the open spaces of KinoPoisk) curious, funny. The pebble thrown by Hellboy into the head of a young FBI agent hits the target, like Guillermo at some point, tightening and braking the tape with this scene, decorated the movie. During the first viewing, I didnÂt get to this episode, during the second (and if for all the same the first one) I laughed.
On the other hand, much of the film can be distinguished from the positive side, except for the picture and design of the Âsuperheroes themselves, of course, Superman in shorts stretched over tights, as one loser says, is far from Hellboy, but he, like Batman and the hell, how many comic creatures this is not required. Here, draw the authors of the Hellboy movie from the Âfire used in The Lord of the Rings, I would be satisfied, and as a result of hell it seems, like not from hell at all.
I would also doubt the stylishness of the first scene of the film (meeting the allies with the Nazis), on the one hand itÂs gloomy like that of Barton and you wonÂt say that itÂs cheap like in Faun, but on the other hand itÂs weak to show interest in the film, and what is the appearance of Rasputin? The fantasy of the authors of the comic was not enough to create another evil character, even worse is the statement about the death of Hitler in the 57th year, the bastard survived Stalin himself. Well, while watching the movie this time, I tried to close my eyes at such a glaring disgrace, even the Âdesign of the hero, if you look closely, can delight you, the sawn horns are original. But Rasputin does not give rest, they would have thought of a different character, it would be better, even Russian, even Dvaputin, Triputin, even a Russian actor in the role of a villain …
In general, for the style of the Hellboy movie comic strip, there are not enough a couple of more or less significant reasons like the twisted Marv or the Yellow Bastard. ÂHellboy is not only inferior in gloom to ÂSin City, but ÂV also means Vendetta and ÂBatman, to be honest, the fact that this gloom is here pleases me, unlike the snotty adventures of an arthropod or Superman.
I can bring another work of Guillermo Del Toro into my asset, and Chronos and Faun and the Devil’s Ridge, even if they donÂt really like me, delight me only good impressions, I canÂt say good ones because the films are not those (as a result of which they continue to delight until now). But Hellboy does not claim this title, the reasons are ridiculously banal:
-commercial orientation, and there is a cash potential (because of humor at least), why I didnÂt succeed at the box office I donÂt know;
– the main character nominated for the title ÂHero (and they like this overseas, perhaps the American viewer simply didnÂt see it, here itÂs not so obvious as in Spider, he couldnÂt even turn into a bad one, loser) .
And if the producers pushed their idea to turn Hellboy into a person at times (well, like a certain Hulk or a Ghost Rider), then it would be possible to throw a movie into the scrap, and there is hope that the hero is the same as he is and will not change. And why did the fiend of hell begin to work for the FBI well, that is, on the bright side of the force, that is, Âfor ours, that is, for the good? Yes, because he was brought up by a good man, a lonely professor, he did not spoil, did not create Spartan conditions, showed where good is and what is good. How in such conditions can a maniac killer with a bald head grow up?
An interesting instance of the thin genre of film comics, the fan of which (the genre), I hope, will never be.
Perlman always needs to work with Del Toro, whoÂs in Chronos, where he is at his best, and the character created by him burns with fire, even when without special effects, learn Nick Cage.
