Hellboy II: The Golden Army

I really shouldn't be watching movies right now, but, man.. c'mon.. it's Hellboy. I had to go see it.

So this movie is about ten times goofier and more fantastical than the first one was, and I loved it. Especially the second half.

I thought Liz Sherman (Selma Blair) was cooler and sexier in this one. I love that Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) had a bigger role this time - he's great. The brother and sister team were surprisingly awesome. All of the beasties and Del Toro-ish creatures were amazing and crazy.

The story isn't mind-blowing or anything.. It's just wacky characters fighting big monsters, and it's fun. Just like the comic series.

If I were to give the first Hellboy a 7 out of 10, I'd probably give this one an 8.
