Hellboy II: The Golden Army

And he posed for this one, and gave an autograph. I suppress each photo, cell phone videos, they cost me a fortune, and then they show up on Youtube... God, I hate Youtube

Slightly less epic in scope then the first Hellboy, Hellboy II is still a reasonably silly and well made romp through the bizarre Reds cartoon world. This time we focus on some well realised and creepy Elves and the threatened return of the dreaded “Golden Army”.vlcsnap-2012-08-24-19h21m08s135

The film is sumptuously shot however the plot is lacking and massively hole din areas. It rrelys on a huge amount of luck for situations to resolve and, most bizarrely, shows a visit to the Giants Causeway WITHOUT showing the Causeway!

Despite its flaws it is still worth a look for the fun side alone. After all we are not watching Shakespeare here.
