From Amazon.co.uk

The feverish Hellboy 2: The Golden Army is a very busy sequel that might have looked unhinged in the hands of a less visionary director than Guillermo del Toro. Ron Perlman returns as Hellboy, aka "Red," the Dark Horse Comics demon-hero with roots in the mythical world but personal ties in the human realm. Still working, as he was in Hellboy, for a secret department of the federal government that deals (as in "Men In Black") with forces of the fantastic, Red and his colleagues take on a royal elf (Luke Goss) determined to smash a longtime truce between mankind and the forces of magic. Meanwhile, Red's relationship with girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair), who can burst into flames at will, is going through a rocky stage observed by Red's fishy friend Abe (Doug Jones), himself struck by love in this film. Del Toro brilliantly integrates the ordinary and extraordinary, diving into an extended scene set in a troll market barely hidden behind the façade of typical city streets. He also unleashes a forest monster that devastates an urban neighborhood, but then--interestingly--brings a luminous beauty to the same area as the creature (an "elemental") succumbs to a terrible death. Del Toro's art direction proves masterful, too, in a climactic battle set in a clockworks-like stronghold tucked away in rugged Irish landscape. But it's really the juxtaposition of visual marvels with not-so-unusual relationship issues that gives Hellboy 2 a certain jaunty appeal hard to find in other superhero movies. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Second big screen outing for the popular cult superhero Hellboy (Ron Perlman), who originally appeared in Mike Mignola's Dark Horse comic series. In this highly acclaimed instalment, the mythical world starts an uprising against humanity in a bid to take over the Earth, and Hellboy and his team are all that stand in their way. Can the superheroic redfaced demon prevent the destruction of mankind once again? Guillermo del Toro writes and directs, and Selma Blair reprises her role as Hellboy's love interest, Liz Sherman.

5.0 out of 5 stars An example of how films should be made. 28 Mar 2011
By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Hell Boy 2 is a tour de force of the mind and imagination of Guillermo Del Toro. Perhaps best known for his film Pans Labyrinth, he's a director who delights in dark fantasy and twisted beauty; something this film is awash with.

The story does a good job of following on from the original Hell Boy (also by Del Toro) but cleverly it manages to stay true to both of its original roots (the comic book and original film) whilst moving everything on, and giving us something new.

In this instalment of the Hell Boy franchise we're introduced to new characters who join the team and an equally memorable array of villains as was found in the first film - most notably perhaps Mr. Wink.

As you'd expect from Guillermo, the sets, costumes, scenery and creatures are both hideous and stunning in equal measure. We see leg less goblins, the angle of death, speaking tumours, and seed-like elementals, or forest gods, who in death explode to create new life covering vast areas of cities in flora and fauna.

Hell Boy 2, just as Hell Boy 1 was, is a visual masterpiece - but this time Guillermo has a bigger budget and the success of the first film behind him so, as amazing as the first film looked, everything is ramped up 10 fold here.

The extras on the Blu Ray revel that Del Toro had lots of ideas for creatures and monster in the first movie (most notably perhaps, Sammael; fans might remember him) but that due to budget restraints he simply couldn't do. However this time around he got use his ideas and bring them to life on screen.

Guillermo fans will recognise his work instantly anywhere, it's so stunning, original and distinctive. Yet for me it's the way he brings his creations to life and makes his films that make them so special.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what bluray is for 4 May 2012
By KM #1 REVIEWER #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Blu-ray
Following on from the brilliant Hellboy. . .Red is now romantically involved with Liz, well sort of, in a typical blokey kind of way and working for the BPRD- The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. Along with Abe and Liz they protect America from paranormal and supernatural baddies! The banter between Manning and Red is still comical as ever as Manning continuously tries to make Red conform to the bureau's rules.Now the big threat is prince Nuada an elf played by Luke Goss (remember Bros?) who is trying to find three sections of a crown that allows the owner to control the golden army which was built to annihilate the humans but was shut down as they were so terrible and destructive and. . .unstoppable!I won't give anymore away!This bluray is amazing in my opinion. The picture quality is fantastic as is the sound. Whack your sound system, speakers or telly up a few notches because you're in for a treat. Although a lot of the action takes place in darker environments the clarity and colours are flawless, this movie was made for the eyes! Visually stunning.Some great one liners throughout and the fight scenes are. . .to die for! As ever big red uses his stone hand and "The Good Samaritan" his oversized gun to great effect.The extras in this two disc set are good. When you realise how much Del Toro used real people in costumes, amazing costumes at that to cut down on the CGI, you will be astounded. I thought some scenes were CGI but they weren't! Wow.Brilliant movie, brilliant visuals, brilliant audio. What more can I say?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film - stunning transfer 15 May 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This blu-ray is razor sharp.
I enjoyed this film at the cinema and it has lost nothing on its transfer to blu-ray.
The story of the first film felt a little flat but this film, while some might say mindless, delivers a very watchable plot.
I won't tell you that it's the greatest acting performance since the premiere of Macbeth but for a super-hero action film you can't get much better than this.
Not necessarily for the missus - this is a man's film.
Order this at your workplace address and smuggle it home under your jacket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality 15 Mar 2009
By Steven Stewart VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Now my feelings are quite different towards the first Hellboy film. I have to admit that although it did have its moments, I found myself becoming bored during the movie. The action sequences were the only relief I felt as when we entered into the emotion sequences I simply found my mind drifting. Guillermo Del Toro's work was completely alien to me until the first Hellboy, now although I did enjoy the original I didn't have many high hopes for the sequel. I guess when he entered into the Hellboy 2 project; Del Toro sought to give us a faster paced, action packed flick that can keep you hooked from the beginning.

In this movie life is great for Big Red (Ron Perlman), he's now in what some would call a perfect relationship with Liz (Selma Blair), and he has a lot of cats and is just enjoying life. Unfortunately the happiness isn't going to last very long as in the dark supernatural underworld, Prince Nuada (Luke Goss) is planning to rise the indestructible Golden Army once again to destroy the human world. His sister who he's linked to by life doesn't agree with his plans and tries to stop the prince reforming the golden crown which would give him ultimate power over the army. She seeks the help of Big Red and the B.P.R.D.

At an increased budget of $80 Million it's obvious from the start that Hellboy 2 is looking to use that budget well. Along with the introduction of a new boss Johann Krauss (Seth Macfarlane), this instalment seeks to introduce a plethora of new fantasy creature. The "Tooth Fairies" are especially bizarre and in a way frightening at their frantic carnivorous nature. A scene that takes place in troll market is especially wonderful with the number of different species going about their daily lives as if in a normal street market.
