Hellboy 2: The Golden Army (2008) - Film Capsule

Heroes: Hellboy, Liz Sherman, Abe Sapien, and Johann Krauss

Villains: Prince Nuada

Diabolical Scheme: Nuada, Prince of the Elves wants to reunite pieces of an ancient crown which will enable him to command an unstoppable army of mechanical soldiers.

Coolest Moment(s): Those pesky tooth fairies, the trip to the troll market (being the best example of incredible effects) and the fight with the golden army.

Worst Moment: Abe's infatuation with Wonder Twin B. C'mon Abe, you can do better.

Comic Book Logic
: How are Hellboy and Liz genetically compatible. The thought of their conceiving a baby is pretty revolting.

Opening Weekend: $34,539,115

Total Domestic Box Office: $75,986,503

Review in 50 Words or Less: Incredibly underrated. You never thought a group of such strange looking oddballs could ever be accused of character development Creative and formidable monsters, top notch effects, and a story balancing equal parts action and heart propel these freakish heroes into a rare sequel which far outshines the original.
