Guillermo del Toro’s upbeat superhero-fantasy film is great fun on the big screen.
Dir Guillermo del Toro
With John Hurt, Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Jeffrey Tambor
Only Guillermo del Toro could pull off a film whose hero is a seven-foot human-demon hybrid with attitude. Hellboy works at a secret government bureau that aims to keep the world safe from paranormal threats. Hurt plays Professor Bruttenholm, his mentor and guardian. This thrilling, upbeat superhero film succeeds where so many others in this genre at the time failed.
