Movie Review: Hellboy II (2008)

Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)

Hellboy's back and he's knocked Liz up thus rendering her useless for the
entire film. Myers is not in this film and is revealed to have been 'put on
a bus' by Hellboy. Damn I liked Myers. An elf Prince (played by former boy
bander Luke Goss) is menacing humanity so Hellboy and his pals have to put a
stop to the Prince. They are assisted' by an elf Princess who is played by
one of the worst actresses I've ever seen.

This film is all eye-candy with monsters, magic, a 'Cloverfield' rip-off and
a climax near the Giant's Causeway. There is plenty of set-up for 'Hellboy
3' but really, why? This film is okay but it's fundamentally empty. I miss
Myers and Luke Goss deserves a better career.

Accompanying this film were two very underwhelming trailers for 'Watchmen'
and 'The Day the Earth Stood Still'.
