I went to see Hellboy 2 last night, I left the cinema feeling as happy as anyone ever could be! I have been waiting all year for this film to come out, and it certainly didn't disappoint me!
We start the story with all our favorite characters from the first film... and lot's of great new characters! If you like characters, you won't be disappointed by Hellboy 2.
The story takes-off with a beautiful narration by John Hurt which truly sets the tone for the whole film.
The films sets out with a great start! wonderful fights and beautiful choreography, which will bring a sense of excitement over you, then there will be a turning point, where Del Toro will play on all your senses at once... then the story really starts!
Beautiful paintings of Love, Betrayal, and Hard Choices along with Sacrifice, as only Del Toro Knows how to do.
I can hardly do justice in reviewing this film, but I shall endeavor to bring parts out in future reviews.
There are some really funny bits, great expletives in Hellboy's own fashion, but yet we come to that great part where one has to make a choice between love or loyalty!
Wonderful score by Danny Elfman, some really funny songs too!
A worthy sequel to the first Hellboy!
For those of you not at all interested in the first film: this one takes on a totally different look on Hellboy and can work as a stand-alone film... that means you don't have to have watched the fist film to love the second!
Well that's enough for one review, but look out for more upcoming Hellboy reviews!
Movie Rating: 10/10
