Hellboy: Sword of Storms

October 28th, 2006 – Television Premiere
February 6, 2007 – Direct to Video/DVD Release

Synopsis: When a university professor opens a forbidden scroll, he becomes possessed by the twin demons of Thunder and Lightning who seek to return to our world to wake their brothers, the dragons. Hellboy, researcher Kate Corrigan, and Russell Thorne, an albino psychic, travel to Japan to investigate. Hellboy finds “The Sword of Storms” which transports him to a world of Japanese folklore. He learns the sword is the only weapon that can defeat the demons but it also holds the magic that will return them to Earth. The possessed professor sends several creatures of Japanese myth to retrieve the sword. While Hellboy battles these creations of folklore, pyrokinetic Liz Sherman and the amphibian man, Abe Sapien, battle the monsters that have been unleashed around the world.

Not only do they have some of the same actors reprising thier roles for this movie, but they are also using a variation of the music from the Hellboy movie. Very cool. :cool:

Yeah, it went to a commercial already. Nothing really happened pre-commercials though.

It's decent so far. I expect to give this a 3/5 rating.
Edit: The girl with the brown hair has an annoying voice.

Voice acting for the Napalm girl is lacking. She isn't too good >.> some of the other voices.. don't seem like the movie versions, but s'ok I guess.

Edit: Seems we agree J'onn. Heh.

It seems like your average side story. Characters are expanded on, but nothing definitive or epic is introduced.

Still extremely glad Ron Perlman is Hellboy. Couldn't imagine anyone else.

Watch your mouth, Hellboy! The soccer moms could be watching! Wouldn't want to eliminate chances for a sequal, would we?

Hey, look, football game review. Can TOM rate a video game any rating other than 8?

No. TOM is a middle-of-the-road ass.

I agree on Ron Perlman. But this is clearly a dark movie. It has the same feel as the live action Hellboy movie did, a mix comedy with a dark edge and death. They just showed the lord killing his daughter (though the slice was off screen, but you hear it).

This is a lot better movie than I thought it would be. And it's getting better as it goes along.

Gosh people it's rated PG-LV don't worry about the content. Just appreciate it for what it is and stop blowing the whistle. If you want to do that... go to GameFaqs. They seem to love doing that.

They're making one before they even know if the first one is successful?
Edit: Sketch, I know it's TV-PG-LV. It's just some little kids'll probably tune in because they saw a commercial for it on Miguzi and... the parents'll probably get mad that they were advertising TV-PG-LV on a block aimed at the 6-11...

But yeah, I'm being paranoied.

Nothing against Perlman, but for some reason I keep imagining Brad
Garrett doing his Lobo(Superman/JL) voice as Hellboy

Long ago, he bashed the hell out of a few DC games.

youtube Nickelodeon even uploaded sneak peek clip 6 min of upcoming episode of Young Dylan - The Gift Grift which was supposed to air last Thursday but was pulled at last notice

youtube Nickelodeon above banner STILL reads as That New Thursday Nights.. it may be a matter of time to remove that banner since there's no new episodes of Lay Lay and Dylan this time.
