    Superior than the first film with the introduction of some cool characters and chemistry between existing ones working well. Becomes a little slap stick in some patches however the humor generally works well. Visually it has its up and downs with puppetry effects but overall I had a devil of a good time.

    Guillermo Del Toro comes back to the world of paranormal( with added help from Danny Elfman for musical score), Liz Sherman, Hellboy, Abe Sapien, with help from Johann Krause takle new threats of Prince Nuala and the Golden Army, plus many abnormal creatures. Another underrated Materclass of his work , and a more underrated, less known greatest comic book movie villian characterized by Luke Goss, who steals the show.

    When was the last time you enjoyed a song in a commercial film, you will leave the screen humming, in love. Hellboy: The Golden Army Del Toro is good. Simply good. The writer and director, Guillermo Del Toro, is back on the franchise and smartly, the last time. After compromising aplenty in the first installment, Del Toro is set loose and a beat of his own drum in this chapter. And going full "nerd", if I can, he has sprinkled so much of mythology in this comic book world that he might as well had started from the scratch. And comes with theses fantasies, is one particular scene to drool over. And in here, similar to George Lucas's Star Wars cantina scene, Del Toro is flexing his muscles and opening the box that, I think, came from his basement in his house. He cannot hide his love. In fact, it is more intimate than The Shape Of Water itself, since there is more room in this world to roam about, he is sticking out branches with wit and guest appearances every now and then. He ups the ante on the previous chapter's questioned action sequences, with fast forward techniques and brilliant editing. But, that is not all. The sword fight might as well be distraction. Walk through a huge battle scene that comes in the middle of the film. His action isn't particularly action. It is a decision. Del Toro deciding to live up to the size of the banner and commercial cinema as they call it, and not compromising the art behind the razzle dazzle. And so is Ron Pearlman, put with the same decision making issue, a pivotal scene in the film and for the arc of the character. He isn't punching his way out of that antic, there is shame, depression, politics and ethics involved in that scene. Eradicating a problem isn't the problem, the problem is dealing with the aftermath result that takes a toll on him, on Hellboy.

    Es mas energica con acción que te dan ganas de verla sin parar y escenas bien realizadas con el mismo humor de la anterior pero a un nivel más poà (C)tico.

    The charm is not as fresh as it was in the first Hellboy but its a more than entertaining comic book film with improved action and undeniable creativity as well as visual splendor.
