Movie Review

Hellboy is a 2004 supernatural action-thriller film directed by Guillermo del Toro. The film is based on the Dark Horse Comics work Hellboy: Seed of Destruction by Mike Mignola. It was produced by Revolution Studios, and distributed by Columbia Pictures.

Released in 2004, it grossed $59 million at the U.S. box office, and $99 million worldwide[1] and was favorably received by critics. A sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, was released on July 11, 2008.

Plot

In 1944, the Nazis work with the undead Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin on an isolated island off the coast of Scotland to build a dimensional portal. They intend to use it, with Rasputin's help, to awaken the Ogdru Jahad, monstrous entities that have been imprisoned and asleep since an undisclosed time, to destroy their enemies. But Rasputin secretly intends to use the entities to bring about the destruction of the entire Earth. He is aided by his servant, Ilsa von Haupstein, to whom he has granted eternal life, and Nazi Lieutenant Colonel Karl Ruprecht Kroenen, Hitler's top assassin and head of the Thule Occult Society. The United States sends a small Army team to destroy the portal, guided by a young doctor, Professor Trevor Broom (Professor Bruttenholm in the comics), who is well-versed in the occult. In the ensuing battle, the German scientists and soldiers are killed and the portal is destroyed, in the process absorbing and apparently killing Rasputin. Ilsa and Kroenen escape capture. As the Army team surveys the ruins for anything that may have sneaked into their dimension through the portal, they discover an infant demon with a stone right hand. Broom coaxes it into his arms with a Baby Ruth candy bar. The soldiers affectionately name the little creature "Hellboy."

Sixty years later, a young FBI agent named John Myers is transferred to the B.P.R.D., run by Broom. He is introduced to Hellboy, now an adult. Also employed with the B.P.R.D. is an amphibious humanoid named Abe Sapien who has advanced psychic abilities, and Liz Sherman, a pyrokinetic who has yet to learn to control her firestarting abilities. Liz has recently left the bureau (for the thirteenth time) and checked herself into a mental hospital in an effort to protect others from her talent. Despite regular visits and coaxing from Hellboy, who appears infatuated with her, she is determined not to return.
Meanwhile, Kroenen and Ilsa resurrect Rasputin somewhere in the mountains in Moldova. Rasputin and his minions travel to New York and the Machen Library of Paranormal Artifacts. There, they smash open a display and, through magic, unleash a monstrously powerful hellhound known as Sammael. Rasputin imbues Sammael with the power to reincarnate and split his essence, causing two of the creature's "eggs" to hatch and mature in seconds each time one dies. Rasputin then visits Liz as she sleeps, reactivating her powers and causing the near-total destruction of the hospital. Afterwards, Myers talks to her, and convinces her to return to the bureau, at least for the short term.

Sammael's ability to multiply quickly becomes a major problem, as Hellboy repeatedly kills it, creating dozens. During a hunt for the beast in the sewers of New York, Abe is injured during an attempt to retrieve some of their eggs, and Kroenen kills one of the FBI agents sent with Hellboy, and Sammael kills the other two agents. Kroenen, whose mutilated body is now run by mechanic parts, then shuts himself down and pretends to be defeated just before Hellboy arrives. Kroenen's body is brought to the bureau for examination. FBI Director Tom Manning is angered by Hellboy's recklessness, which he feels is indirectly responsible for his agents' deaths. Hellboy gets mad and threatens Manning just as Liz returns, almost causing her to leave again just as quickly. Myers, in an effort to help her overcome her difficulties with Hellboy, takes her out for coffee and to talk. Hellboy, jealous, covertly follows them.

While they are away, Rasputin appears at the bureau, reanimating Kroenen before they confront Professor Broom. Out of twisted respect for Broom's protection and nurturing of Hellboy, Rasputin promises him a quick death, but first offers him a vision of the future, showing Hellboy is the agent that has destroyed the world. Rejecting Rasputin's vision of Hellboy's destiny, Broom is stabbed in the neck by Kroenen and, clutching a rosary, collapses and dies.
Manning takes over the B.P.R.D. and, with the help of Hellboy and the others, manages to find Rasputin's physical body located in his mausoleum in an old cemetery outside Moscow, Russia. A team led by Manning and Hellboy enter the mausoleum, but swiftly become separated. Hellboy and Manning find their way to Kroenen's lair, where an enraged Hellboy, with Manning's help, defeats Kroenen once and for all, to avenge the death of his father. Telling Manning to stay back, Hellboy reunites with Liz and Myers at Sammael's nest to defend them, but the creatures overwhelm him. In an effort to help, Liz, with some encouragement from Myers, ignores the fear that has prevented her from unleashing her full potential and uses her pyrokinetic powers to encase herself in fire, which she uses to incinerate the army of Sammaels and all the eggs. Unfortunately, this effect renders Hellboy, Liz and Myers unconscious and they are captured by Rasputin.

To force Hellboy to release the Ogdru Jahad, Rasputin sucks Liz's soul out of her body, telling Hellboy that Liz will come back to life only if he complies. Hellboy, not wanting to lose Liz, awakens his true power as Anung un Rama, causing his horns to regrow. He nearly releases the Ogdru Jahad, but the injured Myers reminds him of who he is and that he has the right to choose his own path. Remembering his true self and what his father brought him up to be, Hellboy snaps off his horns, returning to his former self and resealing the Ogdru Jahad. As Rasputin screams his frustration and disappointment at Hellboy, Hellboy stabs him in the belly with one of his broken horns.
However, Rasputin has one last trick up his sleeve: he is possessed by a creature from the Ogdru Jahad. The tentacled Behemoth bursts out of Rasputin's body, grows to immense size, and kills Rasputin and Ilsa. Hellboy grabs a stone sword from a nearby statue and attacks the Behemoth's tentacles, then allows himself to be swallowed while detonating a belt of live hand grenades. The subsequent explosion tears the Behemoth apart from inside, destroying it. Liz's vital signs are gone when Hellboy returns from the fight, but he whispers into her ear, and suddenly her life is restored. When she asks how her soul was returned, Hellboy replies that he simply told the creatures from the other side the cost of taking her: "Hey, you on the other side. Let her go. Because for her I'll cross over, and then you'll be sorry." She and Hellboy kiss as she surrounds them in flame, and the narrator, Myers, says that what truly makes a man is "Not how he starts things, but how he decides to end them."

Finally, the film ends with a humorous mid-credits scene, where a forgotten and frightened Manning is lost several levels down in the dank and dim halls of the mausoleum, listening to maybe the rustle of footsteps, and looking to see if there's anyone around.

Microgaming Software Systems Ltd is a privately held Isle of Man based software development company which claims to have released the first genuine online casino in 1994.

The company is one of the leading software providers to the online gambling industry, with just under 100 casinos listed on its website. Online casino operators such as Casino Rewards, the Carmen Media Group, Fortune Lounge Group, Ladbrokes, 32Red, Fairground Gaming, Vegas Partner Lounge and Golden Star Lounge are among those who use Microgaming's software.

The standard online casino powered by Microgaming has approximately three hundred games including slots, video poker, blackjack and roulette.

Microgaming provides its casino games in download or Flash version. The company also offers progressive jackpots through their interlinked network of casino operators. Some of these games are developed by Derivco, a South African based software development subsidiary company.

Microgaming also has an online poker subsidiary called Microgaming Poker.

Formerly known as Prima Poker, the software allows players to play multiplayer poker games such as Texas hold 'em and five and seven card stud poker against real people in real-time.

In late February 2008, twenty-seven Microgaming-powered poker rooms closed when their licensee Tusk Investment Corporation Limited went into insolvent liquidation, leaving all players who had funds in those rooms to claim as unsecured creditors in the liquidation. It is not yet known whether players will recover any of their money.

While still known as Prima Poker, Microgaming Poker previously sponsored the Monte Carlo Millions poker tournament. (Credit: Wikipedia).

Microgaming New Games Release Advisory: February 2009

Sizzling Slots to Heat up February's Games

ISLE OF MAN - It's slot-tastic this month as Microgaming launches a slick hot slot with zero paylines, a fun-filled fishing vacation slot and a 'pub fruity' style slot that'll sort the men from the mice.

Guaranteed to fire up your senses with the hot hot hot themed slot with NO paylines, BURNING DESIRE...

Microgaming has introduced an exciting new concept in slot-playing game style. A 5 reel slot that has no Paylines and instead offers up to 243 ways to win!

BURNING DESIRE is an innovative new slot that presents a more exciting way to play, where instead of being constrained by the number of pay-lines, the player can generate more winning opportunities - up to 243 of them. 'Way Wins' means that all symbols act as adjacent scatters and any adjacent symbol combination then offers a win.

BURNING DESIRE is the first Internet slot to incorporate this radical new, player-friendly development, and it features Wilds, Scatters, Multipliers and Free Spins with achievable wins of 30 000 coins in the base game or up to 90 000 coins in Free Spins.

3, 4 or 5 bright gold coins will activate 15 Free Spins with re-triggers possible within those spins, trebling wins and providing hours of red hot gaming fun. The Burning Desire logo is Wild, with huge potential for ramping up winnings by forming rewarding combinations using the revolutionary Way Wins game rules.

The betting range will suit any pocket, running from 0.01 to 1.00, with a maximum bet of 250.00 to really open up the way!

Think you're the big cheese? Then Microgaming's interactive TRACK AND FIELDMOUSE slot will get your whiskers twitching...

TRACK AND FIELDMOUSE is a new British 'pub fruity' style slot that puts an athletic mouse on the trail of free spins, multipliers and generous cash awards, giving the player all the traditional interactive assists such as holds, various types of nudges and shifta moves that enable skill to boost good fortune.

The three reel, 1 pay-line format has three, instead of the usual one, paytables that enable the player to win Gold, Silver or Bronze level winning spins ranging from 1 to 50 on 6 different reel symbols and a feature screen. In the feature game, the top set of reels has 5 win lines, the bottom reels only 1.

The trail has various positions rich in cash and other rewards, but some drawbacks for the unlucky too, all adding to the thrill factor. Trail symbols feature our ace fieldmouse, along with victory torches, honor medals, winged shoes, a 500x Jackpot logo that can deliver up to 5 000.00....and at the lowest level even a nourishing chunk of cheese!

The 'pub fruit machine' style 3 reel 1 pay-line game has found favour with players who enjoy the challenge of an interactive play where skill is a real element in achieving the best results and TRACK AND FIELDMOUSE players can play with a wager range from 0.10 to 10.00.

This game is really easy to use and provides fantastic entertainment through a wide range of fast-paced elements enhanced by sharp, amusing graphics and unique sound effects.

Napsacks, rods and bait at the ready, it's time to go BEARLY FISHING...

Microgaming's latest standard slot, the 5 reel, 25 pay-line BEARLY FISHING is as much fun as going on your favourite vacation, depicting the salmon run on crystal clear rapids and comical bears desperately trying to catch them!

The fun filled theme in this game is carried by brilliant graphics redolent with shady forests, foaming rapids and amiable bears in a comical nature-based presentation that features Wilds, Scatters and a Free Spins second screen, with multipliers of up to 6x depending on how good the player is at hitting the right fishing spots!

Players will want to see the big bear across the reels as the Wild symbol, helping to build winning combinations by substituting for other symbols and the fishing basket icon which acts as the Scatter to deliver the Free Spins to lucky players. Select 1 out of 3 fishing spots and the number of flying salmon caught by Baby Bear will determine the up to 6x multiplier in the 15 Free Spins, with re-triggers as a definite possibility.

Players can hook 12 000.00 in the base game, and a whopping 72 000.00 on Free Spins, with a slew of other winning payouts possible in between. The betting range runs from as little as a 0.01 to 0.10 a line, with a maximum bet of 50.00; this game will provide hours of enjoyable slot action and the chance to score significant rewards whilst having a heap of fun.

Giving the player an added chance to double or even quadruple winnings is the popular Microgaming Gamble feature, where the right prediction on color and suit can substantially enhance the player's bottom line.
