5.0 out of 5 stars Let me remind you why you once feared the dark Sept. 7 2008
Guillermo Del Toro has become the new master of dark fantasy -- first with the quirky clockpunk "Hellboy," then with the Oscar-winning "Pan's Labyrinth." Not to mention forthcoming travels to Middle-Earth.

So you know he has the skills to pit Mike Mignola's scarlet anti-hero against an army of fairies and elves, and not make it silly. Instead, it's a spectacular dark fantasy full of humor, action, quirky appeal, romance, and some truly astounding special effects. But what really shoves this movie over the top is Del Toro's brilliant direction, and the stunning performance by Ron Perlman.

Decades ago, Professor Broom (William Hurt) told a small Hellboy a yuletide bedtime story about the Elf King Balor and his unstoppable Golden Army, and how the crown that controls the Army was split into thirds and divided among fairies and humans.

Well, you can't really expect that kind of power to never be revived.

Cut to current day. Hellboy (Perlman), Liz (Selma Blair) and Abe (Doug Jones) investigate a strange supernatural attack on an auction house, where the archeological curiosity known as the Crown of Bethmoora was being sold -- only to be attacked by savage tooth fairies. Turns out the crown was stolen by Prince Nuada (Luke Goss), a resentful young elf who is determined to take the world back from humanity -- using, of course, the Golden Army.

And while Hellboy chafes against strict new commander Johann Krauss (a suit filled with ectoplasm), Abe encounters Nuada's sister, Princess Nuala -- who also happens to have the last third of the crown.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Cool Sequel Well Worth Watching Feb. 11 2010
4.5 out of 5

Long ago a war was fought between mythical creatures and humanity and, during that war, King Balor, leader of an elfin race, had an unstoppable Golden Army created for him, one that laid waste to humanity. The army marched and destroyed everything in its path. Amidst the piles of bodies and oceans of blood, the king felt great regret so a truce was made between mythical creatures and humankind. The agreement: the mythical creatures stuck to living in the forests whereas humanity could have the land. As well, the special crown that King Balor (or anyone of royal blood) used to control the Golden Army was split into three parts, which two were kept for himself, the third to humans. Also, the Golden Army was hidden somewhere on Earth in dormancy, locked away.

King Balor's son, Prince Nuada (Luke Goss), didn't like the agreement so exiled himself and waited for the right time to strike and take control of the Army and remove the humans from the planet.

Enter present day, where business flows as usual for Hellboy (Ron Pearlman) and the rest of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.). That is, until, Nauda resurfaces and begins slaughtering humans as he tries to piece the crown together so he can control the Golden Army again and find out the secret location as to where the Army is hidden.

To add to the B.P.R.D.'s distress, Hellboy and Liz (Selma Blair) are having issues. She wants him more domesticated; he wants to remain free-spirited. Also, Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) is taken with Nuada's twin sister, Princess Nuala (Anna Walton) and, unfortunately, she is linked to Nuada so everything that happens to him happens to her as well. Nuala wants to stop her brother for what he has planned.

By C. Denison TOP 500 REVIEWER
I'm just commenting on this blu-ray limited edition steelbook release of Hellboy II (not the movie itself). On the back of the package, it says that it contains the 2.5 hour making of documentary. However, that listing is a major mis-print. That documentary is NOT included in this release.

In the original blu-ray release of Hellboy 2, you got 2 discs: a blu-ray disc that contained the movie itself, audio commentaries, deleted scenes, a couple of featurettes, some still galleries and 2 blu-ray exclusive features (comic book builder and a u-control feature). The second disc was a DVD that contained the 2.5 hour making-of documentary.

This steelbook version does NOT have that DVD with the documentary. Instead, this steelbook release contains the same blu-ray disc from the original release and also a regular DVD version of Hellboy 2. It's too bad that Universal didn't include the documentary DVD in this release. However, it's still a pretty neat steelbook nonetheless.

Guillermo del Toro is the perfect director to bring the characters and events of Mike Mignola's horror comic Hellboy to the big screen, and manages here in the sequel to the mostly satisfying Hellboy to create a fully realized and seamless vision of a fantastic underworld that overlaps with the everyday. Del Toro's unique sensibility, that combines a strong sense of whimsy and a keen eye for the macabre, matches precisely the story of an orphaned demon from Hell, raised by a kind-hearted gentleman who happens also to be an expert on the occult. Hellboy, as played by Ron Perlman, is one of the coolest fantasy heroes ever brought to the big screen; he's tough as nails with a heart of gold, both brutish and tender, the kind of guy who'd single-handedly destroy a monolithic monster, and save a kitty with the other hand.

Here Hellboy, or "Red" as he is known to his friends, has to deal with a rogue elf prince, who plans to eliminate humanity, because of its callous indifference to the magic and wonder of the world. At the same time Red's trying to figure out his girlfriend, a human torch played by Selma Blair (in my mind, her best role -- she's never looked better nor seemed so at ease in a role), and deal with the obnoxious authorities who want to impose rules on a force of nature. A scene where Hellboy and buddy Abe-sapian commiserate and get drunk to Barry Manilow's "Can't Smile Without You" is pitch perfect hilarious - yet the demons and monsters are inventive and scary and the swordplay, effects, and action is intense and thrilling throughout. While it may lack some of the profundity and depth of some of the greatest fantasy, you'd be hard pressed to find a fantasy thriller that is more flat out entertaining than this one, at least for those with a geek sensibility like me.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, so it's a sequel
The original Hellboy was truly great entertainment. This sequel is just trying too hard - it becomes too mired in emotion to maintain the pace needed to make this work.

This is a good movie and I love Ron Perlman in anything. All the characters do a great job entertaining me. I will watch it over and over again just as I do Hellboy.
