This article presents information about the film "Hell Boy." A wise-talking, oversized demonic spawn who fights evil, smokes cigars and has a crush on an unobtainable girl with pyrokinetic powers, "Hellboy" is the archetypal comic book hero — he's what every geek wants to be. Count Mexican director Guillermo del Toro among the four-eyed faithful, because he's delivered a version of Mike Mignola's series that amounts to ludicrous fun. His striking sense of colour and production design are keenly felt without subtracting from the well-balanced cast.
