Storyline

A professor of folklore opens a forbidden scroll and becomes possessed by the ancient Japanese demons of Thunder and Lightning, who seek to return and dominate our world. The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense sends Hellboy and a team of agents to investigate, but when Hellboy picks up a samurai sword, he literally disappears into a weird wonderland of Japanese legends, ghosts and monsters. Meanwhile, BPRD agents Kate Corrigan and Russell Thorne are on the trail of the possessed professor to bring Hellboy back. Written by IDT

Trivia

David Hyde Pierce was offered the chance to reprise his role as the voice of Abe Sapien. But Pierce felt that Doug Jones' voice should have been used in Hellboy (2004) and he turned it down so that Jones would get the role. See more »

Hellboy: Hey, kiddo. How you doing?
Liz Sherman: Great. For a walking napalm strike...
Abe Sapien: You saved our lives, Liz.
Liz Sherman: I practically torched you. Not to mention a couple of dozen miyans. Sorry about the burns...
Abe Sapien: Barely a sunburn.
Hellboy: Come on, they were mummies. And they were trying to kill you. Trust me, there's no upside to cutting the undead ANY slack.
Abe Sapien: You did what you had to do.

Hellboy Animated Sword of Storms: About what you'd expect
8 December 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Not being a fan of the Hellboy franchise I might be a bit bias here but I gave this animated effort a go and walked away rather unimpressed.

First of all I was struck how childish it all was, this is closer to a Saturday morning cartoon than an anime or anything of Hellboys general demographic.

Thankfully the full movie cast do in fact reprise their roles which certainly gets it points.

The story however gets few, being an over convoluted tale of Japanese demons trapped within a samurai sword.

The fanbase is clearly there, writing this in 2017 and people are still pining for a third movie.

I'd say this is one for the Hellboy fans and the Hellboy fans alone.

The Good:

Original cast

The Bad:

Liz & Abe look weird

Story simply isn't very good

Weirdly "Kiddie"

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Nothing, I just had it reconfirmed that I find Hellboy a bit of a bore
