Stacy and I wandered over to see Hellboy II last Thursday. (I tried to convince her to do the double bill with Batman at midnight but that didn’t pan out.) Anyway, I think we both enjoyed watching Hellboy II. I don’t think I’d watch it again. Wasn’t quite as good as the first one as they seemed to be going for more of a campy, cheesy appearance which just didn’t work for me.
The action sequences were cool and the fight with the Golden Army looked pretty wicked. All in all though, those things just didn’t make up for the lack of crank turn-age in other places.
So, I’d say watch it, on the bigscreen if you’re in the mood for a comic book movie, and have already seen Batman and Iron Man, else wait for the rental.
