Review of film: “HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY” -- Enlist in the FUN of IMPERFECT Heroes

Review of film:   “HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY  --  Enlist in the FUN of IMPERFECT Heroes =   

                                    [ RATING:  8 of 10 stars ] 

Date Rated: Jul 22, 2008 | Rel. Date: Jul 11, 2008 =

Director Guillermo del Toro has continued his mastery of fantastical characters shown in his “PAN’S LABYRINTH” & sort of combined them with creatures somewhat akin to the “rough” side of “STAR WARS” and an iconic song from Barry Manilow to assemble this clever and enjoyable entry in the world of Super Heroes (& Villains)..

...  RON PERLMAN reprises his role as a Paranormal agent, assisted by DOUG JONES and SELMA BLAIR. They work to stop the re-assembling of the Golden Army by enlisting the help of turn-dress Princess Nuala (ANNA WALTON) to fight the evil doings of her twin brother Prince Nuada (LUKE GOSS)...

...  Besides some very good action and special effects, there are loads of send-ups and tongue-in-cheek humor to expand the enjoyment of this “Saving Humanity the Hard Way”... 

...  While it’s not great, I’m recommending the film because it’s a lot of well-done FUN.
