Radar Blips - Hellboy

The Year: 2004

The Players: Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, and the voice of Niles from Frasier

The Take: $60 Million

Did someone say "Hell"?: Hellboy was the nickname for the cute little baby demon summoned from hell by Rasputin to usher in the apocalypse.

Why you should see it: There are quite a few nice throw down scenes between Hellboy and some demon resurrection dogs. Also, one of the bad guys can wind himself up into a killing machine, and if you take off his mask he doesn't have eyelids or lips. The whole premise of a government employed demon works here. Hellboy has some good one-liners, and overall the movie is just cool.
