I liked it. Guillermo del Toro definitely has one of the most creative minds. The only flaw I could find with it, was the cheezey ending, but then again how else could it have ended? I probably won't see it in theatres a 2nd time, but I will probably buy it on Blu-Ray. It was nice to see more of Selma Blair too, I just really like her look. Overall, it's at least on-par with the first one, but I'd say it's better simply because I saw the things that I wanted to see in a sequel to Hellboy.
ok special effects although lacking compared to what really is available. Acting was sub standard, but expected from this cast. action scenes ok, but overal film lacking and at times cheesy to the point of boredom inducing.
LOVED IT,SPECIAL EFFECTS WERE AMAZING AND THE ACTION WAS GREAT.HOPEFULLY HB3!!!
I was so disappointed with this sequel. I *loved* the first one for its story, humour, and action, but this second movie plodded along with a predictable story, sporadic action, and lame humour. There were very few laughs -- at most, a few chuckles. It wasn't just me; not many people in the theatre laughed either. I felt bored many times throughout the movie, and some of the segments weren't very believable. A few segments were inserted, hoping to elicit an emotion, but failed because it seemed out of place. And some segments were just inserted for the sake of having a special effect, not adding to the story. The producer could have just skipped them and saved some money on the special effec
UNfortunatly this director is a one trick pony and his bag of tricks threw up all over what could have been a good movie. A swing and a miss on this one not a bad rental but dont stand in line.
2 stars for this movie if being generious. Abe sapian wasnt even the same actor with the same english accent they changed his apperance and color as well as hell boy s apperance and color.A fact that was so distracting for the length of the movie i couldnt enjoy it. Not to mention the distruction the HB character they took away his sarcastic nature and might as well have had him neutered.PArt three will likely have him baby sitting or diapering babies i think i will skip the next one.
If you have seen Pans Labrynth you have seen this movie .They have changed both the general look and feel or the two main characters making it distracting through out the movie . Another director would have been a better choice . It would be like Tim burton re doing "Jaws" and putting his spin on the films story line . I did not enjoy this movie.
I can just say "worst episode ever"...complete waste of time and money....horrible plot, even worse acting and cheesy dialogue and jokes...whats worst it didn't even live up to the promise of an entertaining flick
