MOVIE: Hellboy - Sword Of Storms

Hellboy was originally a comic book. There it was a movie. And then it was a cartoon movie?

In Hellboy - Sword Of Storms a wizzened college professor reads from a forbidden scroll and releases two ancient Japanese demons who (imagine this) want to sieze control of the world. Fortunately, the world has the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defenseand they dispatch War Rocket Hellboy to bring back the demons' bodies.

Liked the mythology involved. Didn't like how the plot unfolded. A touch amateurish for an adult-flavored cartoon. A bit long. A bit more slow. Need more butt kicking and less dialog. Had potential but fell short.

Wouldn't work for a date movie. Would work for the kids. (Though Liam didn't care for it.) Entertaining in dude-ish way, if rented for cheap.
