In this continuation to the adventure of the demon superhero, an evil elf breaks an ancient pact between humans and creatures, as he declares war against humanity. He is on a mission to release The Golden Army, a deadly group of fighting machines that can destroy the human race. As Hell on Earth is ready to erupt, Hellboy and his crew set out to defeat the evil prince before The Golden Army can destroy humanity’s existence. (source: IMDB)

In this dark and beautiful fantasy, director, Guillermo del Toro brings us into the underground of the fae folk – Elves, Trolls, Elementals, everything that a fantasy fan could wish for. The visuals are a stunning display of artistic design – great practical effects – damned near flawless CGI. This is one of those rare cases when the only thing I didn’t like, was that it was too short. Two hours was not enough of this story. If given the leeway, I think Guillermo could have stretched this to three hours easily.
