Hellboy 2


I cant wait for this to be released.:)

I was utterly swept away by the first HellBoy Movie. Guillermo del Toro is an excellant Director.

This is going to be one of those Films that i rush out to see as soon as it's released.

I think it hits UK cinemas next week. :)

It's already out in the states and was a decent if not oversized hit. Obviously The Dark Knight is overshadowing everything.

We have "2" in our Netflix queue for rental.

Worth it. Grayson and I loved it. My co-host on The Paracast, David Biedny, had mixed feelings. He loved Health Ledger's performance, but wasn't turned on by the others.

There's also a political argument over the film. Does the Joker represent the terrorists, and Batman the Bush administration?

They fail to release that Batman was invented by the late Bob Kane in 1939 or thereabouts, and the Joker was one of his early opponents, as we all know.

"Hellboy" was perhaps my favorite film. Ever.

"Hellboy 2" was "Pan's Labyrinth" Lite.

Del Toro actually said that during the filming of PL, he was sketching out Hellboy 2, and there were a bunch of monsters they couldn't use from PL, so he put them in Hellboy 2.

The only thing good I have to say about H2 is that Doug Jones did a great job with the voice of Abe Sapien.

And that they brought back John Hurt for the first part of the film.

The rest--Del Toro phoned it in. Which really sucks. It was one of the only things keeping me alive for four years.

Hi Folks,

I saw "Hell Boy 2" in the theater a couple of weeks ago. Myself i was somewhat disappointed giving it a personal 3 out of 5 stars. Somehow it doesn't live up to the same original magic of the first film. The cast is all there and the great fiction is seen throughout but it seems the fizz has gone stale on this version of the franchise. (at least cinema wise)
 
I saw it a couple of days ago in the Cinema and I must say It didnt disapoint ! Some of the Imagery was spectacular and the monsters looked realy good.

Its no ground breaking movie or story by any stretch of the Imagination but it was well paced.

A good romp ! and another feather for Del Torros Bow. :)

Cant wait for "THE HOBBIT ". :D
