Roger Ebert quote iconImagine the forges of hell crossed with the extraterrestrial saloon on Tatooine, and you have a notion of Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconA colorful creature-palooza of nearly unparalleled diversity, Hellboy II: The Golden Army is like the cantina scene in Star Wars extended to two hours.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe temptation is to remark that if Hellboy was the appetizer, then Hellboy II: The Golden Army is the main course. To an extent, that's true. The second film is more assured, better paced, and has a stronger emotional component. It takes chances, offers action, pathos and humor, provides a Barry Manilow singalong, and keeps the focus where it should be: on Hellboy.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconA surprise package of fun, fright and untamed imagination.
