Hellboy II: The Golden Army
Fantasy • PG-13 • 2008 • 2 hr
The visual splendor & imagination of Del Toro is on full display in a sequel that surpasses the original. MacFarlane is a fun cast addition.
Another massive story in this sequel getting covered from the lit' version! Nice! Why they went ahead on a lame reboot though, was nuts! 🙄
Great sequel very whimsical Guillermo D style. Still funny and visually amazing
I like this one better than the first, and I love the first Hellboy. Still holding out a slice of hope for a Del Toro/Perlman Hellboy 3.
A good continuation. Gives more depth to the secondary characters and is just as entertaining as the first
Mejora en cuanto a efectos y los personajes de sienten más vivaces que en la primera entrega.
Del Toro's directorial influence is clear, with beautiful setpieces, effects, and fairy-tale elements elevating an average-at-best script.
Not as good as the first, but still enjoyable
This film is full-throttle Del Toro and if you give in, it’s quite an amazing sight to behold.
Decent superhero horror movie, worth a watch
In the final days of World War II, the Nazis attempt to use black magic to aid their dying cause. The Allies raid the camp where the ceremony is taking place, but not before they summon a baby demon who is rescued by Allied forces and dubbed "Hellboy". Sixty years later, Hellboy serves the cause of good rather than evil as an agent in the Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defense, along with Abe Sapien - a merman with psychic powers, and Liz Sherman - a woman with pyrokinesis, protecting America against dark forces.
Hellboy, his pyrokinetic girlfriend, Liz, and aquatic empath, Abe Sapien, face their biggest battle when an underworld elven prince plans to reclaim Earth for his magical kindred. Tired of living in the shadow of humans, Prince Nuada tries to awaken an ancient force of killing machines, the all-powerful Golden Army, to clear the way for fantasy creatures to roam free. Only Hellboy can stop the dark prince and prevent humanity's annihilation.
