I’ll try to keep this as spoiler free as possible.

Last night I got a chance to sneak preview Hellboy 2 : The Golden Army with a friend. For the record UCB/Human Giant celebs Eric Appel & Aziz Ansari were in the audience. Just saying.

Also just to put this out there, I wanted to love this movie. I went into it hoping for a cross over between the first Hellboy movie and Pan’s Labrynth. All in all I got it. It was amazingly visual, cinematically beutiful, it was fun, action packed and I felt almost as good about this movie as the original (which is in my top 3 comic book movies).

Here’s there thing, there were larger balances in this movie between the things I loved and the things that took me out of the moment. The visual, the creatures, the fantasy world that was created trumphed the first movie several times over. I want many many actions figures based on the Troll – Mr. Wink, the Angel of Death and the Elf Warriors. But the things that took me out of the movie, lines that were at times word for word from the first movie, a main character that was boderline too goofy to take seriously, and god damn I wanted agent Myers to come back. My friend however mentioned he thought there was too much love story, and not enough golden army. (the latter thought I pretty much agree with)

At certain points in the movie I felt like I was almost watching a sit com, and then at other moments I was watching something George Lucas should kick himself for not having done. That being said I would easily watch a Hellboy TV show, and I can’t wait to see what Del Toro’s versions of Doctor Strange, The Hobbit & whatever The Hobbit 2 is going to be about.
