What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Nils van der Linden
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Imagine 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.
Jason Anderson A colorful creature-palooza of nearly unparalleled diversity, Hellboy II: The Golden Army is like the cantina scene in Star Wars extended to two hours.
James Berardinelli The 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.
Peter Travers A surprise package of fun, fright and untamed imagination.
C. Fuchs Decent, but nothing spectacular as a whole.
Tomatometer Del Toro crafts a stellar comic book sequel, boasting visuals that are as imaginative as the characters are endearing.
