Hellboy II: The Golden Army

defo better than the first one - Joel

5 Points

Viewer Rating:Joel has rated Hellboy II: The Golden Army rating: 4 Star

I had a chance to see Hellboy 2 The Golden Army last night at an advanced screening in Charlotte, North Carolina. I made sure to watch the original yesterday before I went to see number two. Right off the bat I can tell you the action in this movie is a whole lot better, it was more intense and was a lot more fun to watch. The comedy was great, the audience was very loud with laughter many times during the movie. The visuals were by far the best, lots of things to look at, looks of very stimulating imagery. I am going to see this again very soon, because I feel like there was so much going on I was not able to catch it all. The movie had an amazing storyline filled with action,romance,drama, and plenty of comedy mixed in. If you're a fan who didn'rate the first one, don't pass this movie up.
