The parade of creatures Del Toro and his team have come up with as this scenario unfolds, starting with a tour of the legendary Troll Market that one-ups the Mos Eisley cantina scene in Star Wars, will make you want to tip your hat in wonder.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army zips from tense showdown to eerie spectacle at particle-accelerator speed.

Guillermo del Toro's mastery of fantasy film-making and his understanding of the multi-faceted richness of the genre guides this sequel to visually imaginative and intricately detailed heights.

Let's hope Universal stays the course and gives us that opportunity. People as creative as del Toro and his gang need all the support we can give them.

Despite its comic-book trappings, Hellboy II, even more so than its predecessor, Hellboy, resembles nothing so much as an art film phantasmagoria.

For all its gorgeous freakishness, the movie is even more about love and friendship than the first one was.

Del Toro's previous film, the complex, visually arresting Pan's Labyrinth, demonstrated his growth as a filmmaker, and though the themes here aren't as profound, the striking set design and use of nonhuman characters carry over.

This film is happy to coast on its good humor and brilliant action pieces. Fair enough, since del Toro has taken the poetry of some of his best work and butched it up, creating some of the most amazing-looking creatures and battles of his career.

If the first Hellboy was about the loss of our fathers and the mystery of where we come from, Hellboy II centers on where we are going, and what we do when the mantle passes.

Easily the most enjoyable of recent comic-book movies.

It wouldn't be classic del Toro without the razzle-dazzle. The Golden Army provide that as they finally rise up, but even in the culminating moments of battle, it is del Toro's feel for human grace that shines through.

Style over substance, no doubt, but when you've got this much style who cares?

Hellboy II is still very entertaining, even if it is simultaneously a little lackluster, and fans of the original are sure to like it. It probably won't hold up well on repeat viewings though.

Thank goodness, then, for Guillermo del Toro, who puts the comic back into comic book with his hugely entertaining Hellboy sequel.

Army fulfills every sci-fi fantasy around, but watching Hellboy find his purpose, contemplate his newly complicated future, or recall his past is where the real awe of the premise is found, not by dancing the "Monster Mash" until your eyes bleed.

Over-analyzing this playful mash-up of pop culture kitsch and high fantasy would be a mistake.

The sets are dazzling, but the characters (manufactured by computer artists in most cases) aren't particularly designed to engage.

Not only are the creatures amazingly conceived, but there's a lovely sense of humour to it all as Del Toro references horror movies of the past and even the work of John Landis.
