Film Review: Hellboy II

Hellboy II: The Golden Army
8.6 of 10
Directed by: Guillermo del Torro
Starring: Ron Perlman, Selma Blair

I saw Hellboy II: The Golden Army today. Although I'm not a big fan of Hellboy, I just had to watch the movie after I saw its trailer. I'm really glad I did though because the film was a blast, it was funny and visually stunning. I especially loved the urban fairly tale theme, mixed with a little bit of steampunk. It's like a Pan's Labyrinth that was shot amidst the chaos of New York. The costumes and make-ups are all masterfully done too. I'm pretty sure this film will be nominated, for its art direction, in the Oscars.
