Hellboy looked interesting from the previews, but one thing led to another and I never ended up seeing it. Well I watched it on DVD tonight and I have to say it was a damn good film adaptation of a comic book. Ron Perlman has the character of Hellboy down pat. His cigar-chomping, jaded, dry-witted, monster fighter personification is spot-on. Hellboy 2 is already in production which should make for another cool comic book film franchise. Way to go Baby Boomers!

RATING 7 out of 10
