    Hellboy II : The Golden Army (2008)

    Director: Guillermo Del Torro
    Lead Actors: Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Doug Jones, Anna Walton, John Hurt, Jeffrey Tambor, Roy Steele, Mike Kelly, Andrew Hefler, Ivan Silverman, King Kalbor and Luke Gross
    Genre: Action, Adventure and Fantasy

    A war ended between beasts and human with an agreement to set boundaries of their respective territories. The story is in mystery, then one ambitious beast plan to rule the world against mankind. Hellboy and his team are ready to protect the world from invaders.


    The film evolves in three dimensional plots, the past, present and the future. The war between the beasts and mankind made peace to each other to end their conflicts. The Prince Nuada revealed his plan to invade the world and the rule the people.

    In the story, the director showed the normal relationship between Hellboy and his partner. Taking in account the role in married life as husband and wife, it is a typical argument between two partners.

    This movie is not advisable for the children to watch without the guidance of their parents. Since some of the scenes need to be explain, especially the story narrated by Hellboy's foster parent about the war between the golden army and humans. On the other hand, it was a typical scene of a child (Hellboy) to be curious about waht he see and perceive. It was explaining to him of what's real or not.

    The creature forms in the film were so unique compared to cartoon Marvel comic characters. That made them needs to be discrete in the public. They should work invisible to normal people in the community.

    Hellboy's character is some way disturbing if the child is watching the scene alone, since he smokes tobacco. This will not be a good image to view, in most case, the adult can relate to the lifestyle since they are aware of this kind of situational kind of life.

    Basically, the movie is entertaining to the viewers who like fantasy, the action maneuvers are carried out in spite the heavy-built structure of Hellboy.
