    Synopsis


    Hellboy II: The Golden Army
    Ron Perlman returns to the role of the big red BPRD agent in this sequel to 2004's Hellboy, directed once again by Guillermo del Toro and scripted as before in collaboration with original Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. For centuries, an ancient truce has kept the naïve citizens of the human race safe from the horrors of the invisible realm -- but that's all about to change, and fast. A ruthless leader has emerged in the invisible realm, a tyrant just as comfortable walking the surface realm as he is living in the land of fantasy. When this power-mad ruler defies his bloodline to assemble an unstoppable army of fantastical creatures that he will use to wage a supernatural war on humanity, it begins to appear that humankind's days are numbered. But Hellboy (Perlman) isn't about to stand idly by as the planet is purged by a demonic despot, and with a little help from his team at the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, he may just be able to send our otherworldly overlords packing. Of course, Hellboy's pyrokinetic girlfriend, Liz (Selma Blair), is always willing to conjure up an inferno or two when things get desperate, aquatic Abe (Doug Jones) is prepared to dive headlong into any battle, and protoplasmic mystic Johann (voice of Thomas Kretschmann) proves an invaluable companion in times of inter-dimensional conflict. Now, as the creatures who inhabit the spiritual realm gear up for an all-out attack on the human plane, the only one capable of saving the Earth is a tough-talking hellspawn rejected by both worlds. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Excellent Sequel

      I'm a "Hellboy" fan and a Ron Perlman fan. Love the first movie. Was skeptical about the second one. Went and bought it without renting it first. Was worried I'd be stuck with a dvd I didn't like. The movie surprised me, I loved it, just as much as the first one, if not more. I love the fact that Ron Perlman does his own stunts, it's all him. That tells me he cares enough about the fans to make the portayal of his character appear more realistic and believable on screen. I loved just about everything in this movie except for the scene where Hellboy and Abe sing to a Barry Manilow song: "Can't Smile Without You". Even though it's funny, I think it was shot way too long and they could've left it out. Even though Liz looked tougher in this movie, I like her with longer hair and a more femine side. I watched all the extra features after I watched the movie. Very interesting how they do everything. Especially the makeup, costumes and the puppeteering. Amazing what people can come up with. For example: The Troll Market. So wild., everywhere you look, you see something new and different. I was glad they didn't make them look like they belonged in "Star Wars". I was really impressed with the "Angel Of Death". Looking back, I think that character stood out to me the most. Looked so real. I was disappointed that they didn't have any outtakes. I love watching those.

      Leading to a Trilogy

      Hellboy 2 was a great movie. It had a lot of action in it, and the story starts right away. It was definately humorous and there were lots of things dropped that sound like a third movie might be in the possible future, and hopefully del Toro decides to do it if there is. Del Toro should definately be praised on the cinematography, because this was some beautiful work and some of the creatures were absolutely remarkable. My only complaint would be that the character moments that helped make the first movie so enjoyable (mainly the Hellboy moments) weren't there as much. The movie almost seemed like an Abe Sapien movie in a way. Although there were some funny scenes between characters, the wittiness and comedy of Hellboy from the first movie didn't have the same impact that it did in this film. Otherwise, I definately think this movie should be checked out.

      Hellboy is just too much for younger kids.

      Let me start out with the best part of the movie, the boss scene is sooooooooooo much better than the original Hellboy where he just kills the dam thing the end. I really thought the ending of the last one prevented the making of another one, but unfortunately I was wrong. The boss fight in this movie was actually worth watching. I like the character hellboy because he looks pretty raw and his attitude gives him an edge that appeals to older teens and young adults, but for the rest of the characters they look like they were taken out of the children's movie pan's labyrinth and I really didn't have a choice whether I saw this movie or not and was dragged to the movie theater. This movie is just too "kiddy" and if it wasn't for Hellboy it would be rated PG. I wouldn't accept this movie if it were free.

      Overall, I thought this movie was pretty good. It's different than other movies so it kept me on the edge of my seat all throughout the movie. I like how they pictured elves to look like what they should and still have the slow aging background of that race. I have a real soft spot when there are elves in movies though so my opinion might be a little biased. The one thing I didn't really like was the caretaker guy was annoying and it was hard to tell if it was bad acting or if he really acted and spoke that way, which makes it really good acting in my books. This movie might be a good purchase as I could see myself watching this movie again in the near future.

      MUST BUY 4 BLU-RAY

      Hello. This is my first time doing a review 4 a movie, I have both hellboy and hellboy 2 on blu-ray. If you loved hellboy then hellboy 2 is a must buy 4 blu-ray. The blu-ray disc shows off the visual effects and sound is amazing. The picture quality makes this movie come alive. This movie is very entertaining and funny. This was hands down a very well put sequel. This movie surpasses any movie in my collection. It makes the new Hulk look like the first one. If you havn't watched hellboy or hellboy 2, you're missing a best buy to put in your collection.

      What's not love? There are so many great fantastic creatures packed in one movie with solid action all over the place!! My personal favorite is Prince Nuada with killer sward skill and sister complex. Goblin Market is another place I wish that was real place other than Diagon Alley.Tree god and what's up with Johann Krauss ? Too bad not so many people even know about this gem. Which is typical treatment for Del Toro's movies by regular movie goers... Sigh. But I love it to the death !!

      Action & fantasy smorgasbord from Del Toro

      Guillermo del Toro follows up his dark comic book adventure with a journey into territories blending the world of Hellboy with the fantastical worlds he himself has created. Fans of PAN'S LABYRINTH will feel like they're taking a trip into areas familiar to them through a dream-like connection. In some ways, I liked this sequel better than HELLBOY because it felt like a blending of two very creative minds more so than simply translating a story from one medium into another.

      I liked this movie more than the first Hellboy movie. Both are great movies. The second one has more horror elements and more of Del Toros signature creepy creatures. There's also more action and fighting, and also, surprisingly, more humor. I like both movies, but this one is my favorite.
