Hellboy (Ron Perlman) and his team face off against a new supernatural threat| while Professor Bruttenholm (Sir John Hurt) must investigate the possible
reemergence of a vampire he had slain decades prior.
After being a little disappointed with Sword of Storms, Blood and Iron makes up for it with a darker story, better voice acting, and a far less irritating music score. The movie begins with Hellboy beating down a monster, which is kinda what he does, and getting the crap beaten out of him while it happens, which is also kinda what he does. Afterwards, we’re treated to a surprisingly layered story involving Trevor Bruttenholm, Hellboy’s "father" essentially, an old vampire, and the witch-goddess Hecate. Caught in the middle is this old priest who lost his faith, which gives the story a good grounding that Sword of Storms lacked. It’s much less of a "Let’s kill the bad monster" story, and brings a very human element to the equation. The story also leaves out the ham-handed character development seen in Sword of Storms, for a much grittier, more subtle, and believable portrayal. My main criticism would be the inclusion of the "human metal detector" guy. He’s not particularly helpful or necessary to the story. He actually serves to water down some scenes that were building real suspense. They also could have done a better job setting up Hecate as a character. She comes off as another monster, but her motivations don’t quite work for me. Overall, I think Blood and Iron is a step in the right direction, and worth seeing at least once. It’s a must-see for fans of the comic book, and anyone disappointed with the live action movie.
