Hellboy and the Golden Army movie review

Big Red Returns to Save Another Day

H.B. is back. The superhero with the soul of a working man leads his team of oddballs into the underworld to fight an army of indestructible warriors.

A direct sequel to Hellboy, The Golden Army reunites most of the original team including writer/director Del Toro, Ron Perlman as Hellboy and Selma Blair as his pyrokenetic love.

The course of love and war not running smoothly, H.B. and the team are revealed to the general public and immediately face a negative storm. A new leader is introduced and combatting evil must be fitted in between a rocky relationship and the struggle against authority.

Saving the world is a hell of a job

Fun, fast paced and undemanding, if you liked Hellboy, The Golden Army will give you a couple of hours of undemanding entertainment.
