Hellboy II: The Golden Army (D)
Along with his expanding team in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development-pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair), aquatic empath Abe (Doug Jones) and protoplasmic mystic Johann-the BPRD will travel between the surface strata and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who’s accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.
“Del Toro is almost alone in his ability to re-create on screen the wide-eyed exhilaration and disturbing grotesqueness that is the legacy of reading comics on the page”- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“Comparing his work to most fantasy cinema is like comparing the Cathedral of Cologne to cave drawings”- Variety
“Hugely inventive — and smashingly beautiful”- Wall Street Journal
“If the film is just as strange and endearing as its glowing protagonist — and it is — that’s because the director and co-writer (with Mignola) is Guillermo del Toro, 43, who has the wildest imagination and grandest ambitions of anybody in modern movies”- Richard Corliss, Time Magazine
