'Hellboy' The Seeds of Creation: One for the fans
4 July 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I never got onboard the bandwagon for Hellboy, I never rated the movies very highly and thought the animated spinoffs were pretty weak affairs.

Regardless of my opinions they reached cult status and have almost reached Firefly (2002) levels with peoples desire for more. Alas as I write this in 2018 it's long since confirmed part 3 isn't happening and in fact the whole franchise is getting rebooted.

The Seeds of Creation is an almost two and a half hour making of documentary exclusively for the first movie. It involves everything you'd normally expect such as interviews, backstage footage and explanations into the movies special effects.

It drags and the interviews are more than a little lacking but for fans of the franchise I'd imagine this feature is an absolute goldmine.

I see what they were doing and respect it but I'm a) Not a fan and b) Don't think this is a very well constructed making of documentary.

The Good:

Very thorough

Some fun backstage stuff

The Bad:

Really drags

Things I Learnt From This Documentary:

I don't know what it is about Selma Blair, she just gives off douche vibes
