- Synopsis / Plot
- After an ancient truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken, hell on Earth is ready to erupt. A ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures. Now, it's up to the planet's toughest, roughest superhero to battle him... Hellboy. Along with his expanding team —pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz, aquatic empath Abe and protoplasmic mystic Johann—the BPRD will travel between the surface strata and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who's accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.

- Critics' reviews
"The whole affair is pulpy, jokey, sometimes touching and frequently nonsensical: a big mess and, mostly, a lot of fun."
A. O. Scott: The New York Times
"Highly imaginative and consistently amusing without pretensions. (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of four)."
