Storyline

In 1939, young Professor Bruttenholm destroyed Erzsebet Ondrushko, a female vampire who bathed in the blood of innocents to stay young. Now someone in upstate New York is trying to bring her back, and the elderly Professor Broom has decided to investigate it himself. He takes the top BPRD agents, Hellboy, Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien, who are more worried about his welfare than the return of any vampire. Their tune changes when they face a horde of ghosts, a phantom wolf pack, witches, harpies, a giant werewolf and Erzsebet herself. Hellboy ends up battling the Queen of Witches, the goddess Hecate, who wants him to embrace his true destiny, a destiny that includes the destruction of mankind. Written by IDT

Goofs

The goddess Hecate can be pronounced either 'heck-a-tee' or 'heck-ate'. The latter is used here. It probably originated among actors performing William Shakespeare plays (which often listed the Roman deities), when they saw the word in print and used their own judgment when speaking it. These mispronunciations then became standard Shakespearean theater convention, and have crossed from pop culture to the common language whenever ancient figures are discussed. Honored Shakespearean performers continue to pronounce Jacques and Marseilles as "Jakies" and "Marsellus" in the context of the play, and use the "ay" sound (rather than the classical "ah") for the a's in Cleopatra and Coriolanus, the latter being especially giggle-worthy.

Hellboy Animated Blood and Iron: Another highly meh offering
9 December 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

This second of a proposed three animated outings for Hellboy follows as the team fend off vampires, werewolves and the Greek goddess Hecate.

Alike the previous movie this features the cast of the live action films and that is honestly the best thing going for it.

With a nonsensical story, a style of animation I'm simply not keen on and the fact I'm really not fond of Hellboy anyway this really didn't stand much of a chance.

The third movie was cancelled and I feel bad for fans of the franchise, but for me I'm not fussed as I couldn't dream of it exceeding my already low expectations.

For Hellboy fans this is great, for the rest of us not so much.

The Good:

Full original cast including the late great John Hurt

The Bad:

Abe looks like Dhalsim with a vitamin deficiency

Rather dumb plot

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I can't hear J. Grant Albrecht without thinking of Destroy All Humans (2005)
