Hellboy

Hellboy

One of my favorite movies adapted from comics (indeed, one of the best comics based movies ever made). Good writing, great action scenes, and also had some good humor. The casting was great too: Ron Perlman really nailed the role of Hellboy.

The special effects on the Sammael creatures was done very well:

Definitely worth a watch for those who haven't seen it.

The sequel is good, too.





The original Hellboy comics are also worth a read.

Read the huge comic collection addition books and seen all films. Hellboy is quite a fantastic character. In regards to the differences between the comics and the movies, they're largely negligible or don't bastardize the original story by changing the characters to fit some fantasy or agenda.

What is the differences between the comics and the movies? I watched the two movies but I never read any of the comics.

He'll boy has to hide his existence for most of the movies, but in the comics he's recognized by the UN as an honorary human, and the organization he works for isn't that secret.

His main enemies are the Orgu Jehad (I forget how to spell it). They're the huge tentacle things impisoned in a crystal in the first movie and they're much more directly involved in the comics, along with Rasputin and the Baba Yaga.

The Sword and Storms cartoon movie is largely original overall, but a few scenes were originally standalone right out of the comic (the headless people for one)

There's a lot more I can tell ya later if you want specifics

Karl Ruprecht Kroenen was responsible for the death of hellboy father in the movie... in the comics he also kill hellboy father? And also, what role Samael has in the comics?

Karl is based on a Nazi scientist who answers to Rasputin in the comics, but he's much more minor character in the comics and really only shares the mask. Hellboy's dad is killed by a frog creature in the first comic, which is created by one of the spawn of the Ogru Jehad.

Samael doesn't appear in the comics, but he seems to be based off the the frog creatures to some degree. The comics are more episodic to be sure, but recurring enemies include the Baba Yaga(whom ultimately controls Rasputin) and Hecate also is more prevalent(she essentially stalks him throughout the comics).
