In this continuation to the adventure of the demon superhero, an evil elf breaks an ancient pact between humans and creatures, as he declares war against humanity. He is on a mission to release The Golden Army, a deadly group of fighting machines that can destroy the human race. As Hell on Earth is ready to erupt, Hellboy (Ron Perlman) and his crew set out to defeat the evil Prince before The Golden Army can destroy humanity's existence.Written by
In both Hellboy movies' opening titles sequences, there is a brief shot of a spoof drawing of the "Vitruvian Man" by Leonardo Da Vinci. In this movie, it's of a Golden Army soldier. In Hellboy (2004), it's Hellboy. See more »
When the army first awakens, the camera pans out away from the four agents, with the throne in the background. Although in the shots before and after, the Prince and Princess are standing directly in front of the throne, they are obviously not present in this shot. See more »
I went to a screening of Hellboy II and loved it. I did not see the first movie, nor have I read the comic book. In fact, I knew nothing before getting the invitation. The movie is very smart, very comical and very well done in my opinion. I found myself laughing a lot, something the rest the audience was not doing. Either they just didn't get it or I didn't. There were quite a few subliminal messages and the subtext was heavy. Environmental issues, man versus nature and how we treat the planet. Political issues, world dominance and who really deserves to live or die or rule. Love and how much a person is willing to do to get it and keep it. I liked Hellboy II so much I am going to see the first one and hopefully the third.
