Hellboy II: The Golden Army
I caught this opening night. I was a fan of the first movie, I’ve enjoyed everything that I’ve ever seen from Guillermo del Toro, and in my B-Movie loving opinion, Ron Perlman can do no wrong. See, in the grand scheme of things for B-Movie fans, Ron Perlman is the mackdaddy of bad movies. See, there is no such thing as a bad Ron Perlman movie, there are bad movies with Ron Perlman in them, but he’s still going to be fun no matter what. (don’t believe me? Go check out Primal Force, AKA Killer Monkey Island, for the ultimate in B-Grade cheese fun.)
Hellboy II rocks.
It is funny, has great characters, a bunch of action, strange creatures, kung-fu elves, the works. What’s not to love? The opening story telling sequence demonstrates why the director is a genius.
