Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie, when Hellboy is speaking on the phone with "Dad", he's speaking on on speaker, but when the phone shows up, instead of showing a screen of a call on speaker with the duration on the call, the screen shows what would appear if he was receiving a phone call before accepting or declining. (03:35:00)

Revealing mistake: When the elevator begins to fall, Hellboy raises his left arm, revealing that David Harbour's arm is not painted red from the wrist down. (01:45:00)

Revealing mistake: After impaling one of the Giants with the tree, when Hellboy is standing up, the seam of his costume is visible on his back. (00:34:20)

Continuity mistake: When Major Ben Daimio is saying the line about putting Hellboy back in his cage, he's walking towards an elevator door mid sentence and looking at the door. The camera cuts to a different angle as he finishes this sentence and suddenly his head has turned 180° with him looking at Hellboy instantly between shots. (00:41:55)

Character mistake: Hellboy's stone hand is on the wrong side when he's fighting the first giant. (00:32:50)

Revealing mistake: When the elevator crashes down and Hellboy wakes up and starts to move, the prosthetics on his head move unnaturally around his horns and forehead as he gets up, revealing they aren't real.


Revealing mistake: When Hellboy is seen filing his horns towards the beginning, as he runs the file along them (right before Broom takes the file), the prosthetic horn stumps are moving up and down unnaturally for a moment. As they are meant to be protruding from his head, they shouldn't be moving up and down as he moves the file back and forth.


Nimue the Blood Queen: Be my king. And be revered for who you really are. We belong together, you and I.
Hellboy: We do. But it's not going to work, you know, cause I'm a Capricorn and you're fucking nuts.

Trivia: Original "Hellboy" film series director Guillermo del Toro tried for nearly ten years to get a third film made in the series. However, due to a variety of circumstances, including budgetary concerns, his original vision for the third film was unable to be made. This movie was then written by series creator Mike Mignola and writer Andrew Crosby, with the intention of following on from the first two films. However, del Toro and original star Ron Perlman declined to be involved, feeling they should not make the film as it wouldn't pay off the storylines set up by the first two movies. Mignola and the producers then decided that rather than trying to make a direct sequel to the first two films without del Toro and Perlman, it should be rewritten to be a stand-alone reboot. References to the other films (and certain characters like Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman) were removed, and replaced with new concepts to set it apart from what came before.
