Hellboy - 2 Disc Special Edition

There's no getting around the fact that this is Guillermo del Toro's baby. If you're a fan of his then you already know the style the movie is going to be in. Hellboy is another in a long line of movies of his that WOW you with special effects. You can tell this one was a labor of love for him. Just look at all the little details within the movie. The sets, the creatures, the FX. It's pretty astounding to see and hear on a surround sound system. I'm a huge fan of the Hellboy comics, even though it's been years since I actually read it last. So, to say I am a fanboy going into the movie isn't saying much. The first 2/3 of the movie is a good movie for me. It's not until the 3rd act does it really shine a light on what the movie franchise could possibly become in the future.

I think the casting of Ron Perlman was brilliant, even if Hellboy himself looks more like Ron than the character from the comics. I'm okay with that. He gives the character it's personality. The rest of the cast is solid. My only complaint is that we don't get a whole lot of Liz (Selma Blair) and her powers. Even at the end it seems too much of a tease.

Highly recommend this as a Buy and definitely go with the 2 Disc Special Edition. Lots's of goodies and bonus material.
