Editorial Reviews

In this first animated feature from Director Tad Stones (Buzz Lightyear of Star Command), and Creative Producers Mike Mignola (creator of HELLBOY comics) and Guillermo del Toro (writer/director of the HELLBOY movie), a folklore professor becomes unwittingly possessed by the ancient Japanese demons of Thunder and Lightning. But when The Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defense dispatches a team of agents to investigate, a cursed samurai sword sends Hellboy (Ron Perlman) to a supernatural dimension of ghosts, monsters and feudal mayhem.Now while pyrokinetic Liz Sherman (Selma Blair) and fishboy Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) battle one very pissed-off dragon, a lost and cranky Hellboy must find his way home. Even if he can survive the perilous journey, how much crap does a guy have to put up with from the two most vengeful and ferocious spirits of Japanese legend?

This animated movie's story is more in line with the Hellboy comic book stories than the live-action movie was, and while officially unrated, it's similar to the live-action movie and the comic books. I'd probably give Sword of Storms a PG-13, with [...].

I love, LOVE, the mythical creatures used in this movie, it's much like the comic in that way. I have a softspot for folklore monsters being used in comics, books, & movies, especially when it's normally obscure folklore stories (like the Japanese flying heads or the Baba Yaga, for instance... Hellboy comic readers know what I'm talking about). I'm just not into the Marvel spandex-and-cape-wearing superheroes, they don't appeal to me at all, so in contrast, Hellboy and his friends feel like the perfect superheroes to me.

Voice acting is great here, though I'm biased because I couldn't imagine Hellboy's voice before Ron Perlman took the part. The other actors do a great job as well, and the sound effects were great (I watched it with surround sound when it was on TV). The animation has great lighting and colors, I thought (I say "great" way too much, I know), although the characters do look a little, well, "Kim Possible". Just a little. Not a bad job, though. I kept up with the movie's production diary on another website, and Tad Stones (the movie's director) was saying why they had to do that style for the animation: Hellboy needed eyebrows to show expression, Kate looks younger than she does in the Mignola comics because in animation any lines on her face would make her look like she was 70, etc. Stuff like that.

Format: DVD
Hellboy: Sword of Storms is the titular character's first-ever animated adventure. While investigating an ancient Japanese sword, Hellboy is sucked into a mystical world and is forced to do battle with monsters and demons before he can return home. And if he makes it home, he must face two ancient gods ready to destroy the world. But hey, nothing's ever easy.

Fans of Mike Mignola's comics or the recent Hellboy movie will love this adventure. True it doesn't use Mignola's distinctive art style, but it maintains a look that is distinctively 'Hellboy' while at the same time being much easier to animate. Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, and Doug Jones return to voice their movie roles, and seasoned vets Peri Gilpin, John Hurt, and Phil LaMarr carry the supporting characters. Perlman again proves he is the only choice for Hellboy, and his deadpan delivery is amusing in itself as well as emphasizing some of Hellboy's actions.

This dvd is fully loaded. Lots of featurettes, audio commentary, and footage taken from the panel at the San Diego comic-con. With the first release, Hellboy blows away all previous DTV efforts from Disney, Marvel, and Warner Bros.

I recommend this to anyone in search of a good comic book story with sharp writing and good animation. Truly fills the gap left open by the departure of Justice League Unlimited, and is far better than the recent Marvel efforts.

Usually, these direct-to-video animated comic adaptations are pretty bad, but this one is great. It has an involving story and decent animation. It is NOT a watered-down version of a story taken from the comic; although it is not as bloody as the comic but that was to be expected.

Well worth your time and $$$.

I was really surprised by this. After watching so many bad Marvel animated films (the avengers/iron man), it was refreshing to see a good plot, nice flow, and excellent stylized animation.

Wonderful. I can't wait to see the next one.

HELLBOY: SWORD OF STORMS is the first of two (so far) animated Hellboy films; it debuted on the Cartoon Network on October 28, 2006. The second animated offering, HELLBOY: BLOOD AND IRON, is slated to air in 2007. For those not in the know, Hellboy is a very popular and successful Dark Horse comic book character conceived, written, and illustrated by long time comic book artist Mike Mignola. HELLBOY: SWORD OF STORMS is not a follow up film to the live action HELLBOY, but, instead, bears a closer similarity to the comic book version. Here, for example, Hellboy and Liz do not have a romantic relationship and Abe Sapien is not psychic. However, pertinent cast members from the live action movie do lend their voices to this animated effort, with the exception of the film-uncredited David Hyde Pierce, who had originally voiced over Doug Jones's Abe Sapien role. Here, Doug Jones gets a chance to do his own vocal work, and he doesn't suck.

Some more background for the casual viewer: Hellboy, a baby demon summoned to Earth by Nazi occultists in 1944 - during WW2's final days - and subsequently adopted and raised by the U.S. Army from infanthood on, is one of the good guys. Hellboy makes a powerful ally as his demonic origins equip him with superhuman strength, near invulnerability, an immunity to fire, and a gigantic stone hand (called the Right Hand of Doom, which is prophesied to be instrumental in bringing about the Apocalypse; but that's got nothing to do with this film). Hence, the big coat-wearing, big gun toting, now mature Hellboy has become the primary agent of the U.S. Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, an entity dedicated to defending humanity from supernatural threats. Which now brings us to HELLBOY: SWORD OF STORMS.
