Hellboy came to our world in 1944 and is from a fallen angel. The Third Reich had long tried to gain an advantage in the war in many ways. Including creating a race of super soldiers. In doing so they were hoping to attract the ideal soldier to the ranks of the German army. Hellboy is exactly the one they need, but they never manage to make their plans a reality. The creature from hell fell into the hands of Americans and began to serve them instead of the Germans. This time he is sent to England to meet face to face with the monster he has been dreading his whole life.Ssiscool
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.

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.
