just saw a sneak last night. never saw the first one. i thought it was easily the best movie i've seen all year. if only every superhero, fantasy, summer action flick was this good. humor, special effects, emotion...i was floored!
This seems very awkward.Never seen hellboy and got no idea until i saw this trailer and i though. "Wow this might not be bad" well when it comes i will know. Is it good or is bad...is it AWESOME or is TERRIBLE.We will wait......its STRANGE i am talking about HELLBOY...Yeah THE STRANGERS(2008) WAS HORRIBLE I AINT SEEING IT UNLESS I GET 50$ OR MORE.....yeah lets end by saying READ THIS DAMN REVIEW...I mean preview lol :D
I must admit I wasn't a great fan of Hell Boy 1, and in fact never heard of the Hell Boy comic before the movie but, being a sci-fi fantasy buff I found it very watchable and was very much looking forward to del Toro's vision for this next chapter. He did not let me down. His creatures and CGI were incredibly beautiful and his casting of Luke Goss (Nomak from Blade2) as prince Nuada was right on. Incredable action and acrobatic fight scenes left me wanting more when the movie was done. A must see movie!
:fresh:

Hellboy II is another guillermo master piece!!!!

It will keep you at the edge of your seet!
I guess since i'm on(but totally drained ) I'll give my non-spoiler review.This movie will knock your socks off.it's totally different from what you expect.Different from the first film ,but totally in a good way.the plot's out there, so i won't go into that.
Mignola and del Toro spin a tale that covers the world and the otherworldly.you will be immersed into a world of familiar old friends and enthalled by some new ones.
visually ,two words comes to mind spectacular and breathtaking..."eye protein" as del toro calls it...INDEED!!!to see the concepts in the "Art Of..." book come to life are a wonder in itself.(kudos to all involved).
The performances...are stellar.Perlman gives his talent of comedic timing a work out.and kicks monster butt like no other"Hellboy SMASH!"

I've been on a movie-watching tear lately...eventually I'll get around to posting my thoughts on all of them, but I'll just cut to the chase and tell you what two HUGE summer movies I saw last weekend...






But Hellboy II's failures outweigh its triumphs. Those triumphs, by the way, include del Toro's infinite sense of whimsy, the Pan's Labyrinth-esque creatures that inhabit his world, and a cast that does surprisingly well with the storylines they're given, especially considering that Grandpa Bluth (Jeffrey Tambor) plays the boss, a former Brit boy-bander plays the villain (Luke Goss), and Doug Jones plays three different parts, all under prosthetics. (Jones also gets to voice Abe Sapien for the first time on-screen, having had practice in the animated series and video game. In the first Hellboy, David Hyde Pierce provided vocals.)

The problem is, Hellboy is given precious little to do. He starts out an immature slob, and he ends up, basically, the same immature slob but with a vaguely renewed sense of responsibility. He's destined to destroy mankind, but has chosen to defend it; why, then, give him a mid-story ethical crisis that never quite plays out?

Like Batman in The Dark Knight, Hellboy's story has little to do with Hellboy himself. In fact, there's really nothing unique tying him to the story and villain; it could be any fantasy-action hero saving the world here. What del Toro does nail here is in replicating the tone of the first film, providing laughs throughout and moving things along at a nice click. Those two hours (or however long it is) fly by, and though much of what's on paper won't make much sense or bear any real meaning, there's lots of eye candy to take in. All of which means that while Hellboy II is fine (hovering on the low end of Fresh for me), it's also forgettable - which means bad news for a superhero movie battling Iron Man, the Hulk, WALL-E and Batman this summer season.


So ends my double-stuffed superhero weekend. Weigh in with your thoughts...
I haven't seen this movie yet, but my boyfriend said it's going to be awesome!
hate it hate hate it
