Here he is, here is Hellboy this fully fleshed out character who no longer needs an origin story, an origin story that was a little thin on the ground in detail and imagination, with not a booable bad guy in sight. Hellboy 2 is great, I saw an advanced screening of it last night and I loved it!
Guillermo Del Toro has been given free reign, after Pans Labyrinth it’s clear to see why. This films imaginations and dedication to effects (favouring puppets over cgi for some of the shots) make it a spectacle. The actors have more fun with the banter between team members and Luke Goss plays evil Prince Nuada, with a cool name, a cool look and an expandable spear he ass kicks his way through the film.
Not as thought provoking or as enthralling as The Dark Knight, this is up there with Iron Man for this summers sheer entertainment thrill rides!
