What the critics said ...

 

HELLBOY ANIMATED: SWORD OF STORMS

"Doug Jones didn't get to voice his performance as Abe Sapien in the live action film (that job was handled by David Hyde Pierce, minus a credit). Jones proves here that he has a warm and amusing presence (he gets all the best lines) even when his lanky, real life frame is hidden from the camera."

Gabriel Powers
DVDACTIVE.COM

"Doug Jones is pitch-perfect as Abe Sapien."

Maurice Cobbs
DVD VERDICT REVIEW

"Doug Jones' performance was superb and, honestly, demonstrated that he really didn't need to be over-dubbed in the first Hellboy film, and hopefully won't be over-dubbed in the second."

BUREAU 42 DVD REVIEW

" ... and though Doug Jones did not voice Abe Sapien who he played in the live action film (It was the voice of David Hyde Pierce), he does a good job as the voice here."

LATEFILM.COM

"Doug Jones (who was the actor behind Abe Sapien's makeup) does a great job doing Abe's voice - and almost makes you wonder if he would've been fine in the role Niles stole from him. Better get used to his new voice either way though, because he's going to be doing it for both the animated and live action sequels. He does a fine job with it."

Alex Riviello
CREATURE CORNER

"Jones’ turn as Sapien (he only did the body work for in the film, David Hyde Pierce taking over the voicing duties) is spot-on."

DREADCENTRAL.COM

"Doug Jones seems rather comfortable with the character here as he is great with this character anyway - only this time he didn't have to deal with all of that pesky make-up"

Rick Blalock
TERROR HOOK REVIEW

"The best of all however, is Doug Jones. Seemingly perennially cursed by his background as a mime, the man has been seen in several great films in recent years but never heard. He has a pleasant, deep-ish voice, which entirely suits Abe Sapien."

Vukodlak
IMDb

"I was also pleasantly surprised to see that Doug Jones, who played Abe Sapien in the film but did not get to voice his character, which was done nicely by David Hyde Pierce, actually provides the voice for Abe Sapien here, and does a great job, too."

Seltzer
IMDb

"Doug Jones is very good as Abe Sapien; in the live-action film, an uncredited David Hyde-Pierce voiced Abe, and while Pierce did a good job, Jones brings an everyman likability to the role. "
