    • Note: Sword of Storms and screenshots 6 - 10 are from Blood & Iron. Hellboy Animated is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of Lionsgate Films with a 2160p transfer in 1.78:1. This is frankly kind of an odd release...

    • Lionsgate may have a distinctly weird slate of 4K UHD releases in terms of some of their older 1080p Blu-ray product, but they have frequently upped the ante (literally in the case of audio codecs) by...

    • Unlike the original 1080p Blu-ray release of this title, one which offered no supplements of any kind, Lionsgate has included a few extras associated with each of the two titles offered on this release....

    • Hellboy Animated boasts two new Dolby Atmos tracks that sound quite good during each film's more active moments.With a Hellboy movie, you'd expect almost non-stop action in the audio department, but these...

    • Guillermo Del Toro (The Shape of Water, Blade II) is an avid comic book reader and fan. His favorite story was Hellboy from creator Mike Mignola. In 2004, Guillermo got to make a big budget live-action...

    • Hellboy Animated is, in my opinion, a lot of fun, despite not having the magic and full entertainment value of Guillermo Del Toro's live-action movies. Still, we're getting more Hellboy adventures with...
