Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Not my first choice for the movies, John is an avid Hellboy fan. The movie was NOT what I expected. Beautifully directed and designed, the film showed the director’s and writer’s appreciation for the venues created as well as the characters. The story shot almost like a cops and robbers film with comic book characters as the feature was NOT cartoony. In contrast to the 1989 Batman films, this movie was lighthearted, well-developed and real without the showy, slapstick stupidity of some comics made into film.

As a non-comic reader I loved the film. John less so. If you would like the comic reader’s opinion, I hope that scrivener’s tomb will have a review before long.
