    An Action movie that's Gorgeous too. . .

    Guillermo del Toro, the director of Hellboy II, knows how to make absolutely stunning films. He is also the director of Pan's Labrynth, a movie which is absolutely gorgeous, but the subject matter is alittle too outside my comfort zone for multiple viewings. In Hellboy II he brought all his artistry to a mainstream audience and he's created a masterpiece. Don't get me wrong, its not just a pretty picture. Unlike so many other action films that rely on cool cgi to get an audience, this story is so very well developed, the plot is very engaging. And as a sequel it holds its own, meaning you don't have to necessarily see the first one to figure out what's going on, and it actually might be better than the first. I throw this in anytime, for just about any audience, from my young nephews to golf loving husbands to persons just hanging out.

    Better than the first one.

    Far more exciting than the first - watch out for the fireflies or faeries. Cute in spots. Funny in spots. The grandson (18) says it's too predictable and not much plot. We "old folks" just liked the excitement and pace.

    Silly Family Movie

    Some scenes are better suited for older kids however its a clean enough movie for even the younger boys to watch. Not on my top personal favs however for the entire family to watch together - which is the most important thing - this movie will do.

    A sequel that outdoes the original.

    Like "The Empire Strikes Back" and "The Godfather Part II", ¿The Golden Army¿ outshines it's somewhat lackluster predecessor. The story is tighter, the characters more interesting, and the scope much more epic. This is fantasy at its best, with remarkable visuals, fun irreverence, and lots of action. Fans of Hellboy, adventure, and Sci-Fi/Fantasy in general will be happy with this film. Definitely worth seeing.

    AN ACTION PACKED FANTASY FILM!!!

    Hellboy 2? Visually cool and dark. I liked it more than the first because it rases the question: will Hellboy always fight for us or will someday down the future will he change his mind? Great acting, good humor, and well thought of plot. Glad to have seen it and to own it.

    Hellboy hits it again!

    Hellboy 2 continues the story of Hellboy and his work with a paranormal agency. He is still surrounded by friends and a new leader who reminds me of the Brain of Morbius from Doctor Who. What transpires during the film is a battle of the Earth between Humans and Elves/Goblins/Ogres/Trolls, and Humans are almost wiped out by the Elves Golden Army of giant robots. But in a moment of compassion the King of the Elves decides to not finish off the remaining Humans and calls a truce that Humans may build their cities but leave the forests to the Elves and Trolls. Years pass and humans have forgotting the truce and have taking over to much of the Elves and Trolls land. The prince of the Elves has decided his Father is to weak to do anything about the Humans and decides it's time to wake the Golden Army again.<BR/>Filled with tons of action and a mean twist on what it is like to be different, Hellboy 2 delivers the goods.<BR/>Also included are the following special features: 6 deleted scenes, Troll Market Tour, Commentary, set visits and an epilogue animated comic.
