This is the second of the Hellboy animated movies I watched this week (first one is below for just alphabetical order sake). Hellboy: Blood And Iron learns from the mistake of its predecessor a bit, mostly in adds willingness to embrace the comedic tone that Hellboy can have. Also, Blood And Iron benefited from having a familiar setting: A Haunted House.
- A simpler story makes Hellboy Animated: Blood And Iron more digestible.
- I know that my grades on the animated comic book movies are lower on a curve that most other movies, and yet I still enjoy watching them immensely. These types of movies are just the perfect background noise and brain-numbing entertainment. Not every movie is good, but they are entertaining for what I enjoy.
- Blood And Iron pays more homage to the relationship between Professor Broom (John Hurt) and Hellboy (Ron Perlman).
- It is rather odd that the first thing I think about Ron Perlman is his portrayal of Hellboy. A role where he was covered in prosthetics and his voice is his most distinguishable aspect.
