Difficult to give a result worthy of the name to Hellboy, because of the half-success of the first opus international box-office. In addition, Guillermo Del Toro wanted to make a sequel more couillue, full of noise and fury.

Successful gamble, the film is spectacular and the cap to the pole of large machines hollywood having cost more than double of its budget, thanks to the ingenuity of the director and the sacrifices he has had to do to make her baby.

He has done well because the action scenes of Hellboy II : The Legions of Gold-Cursed are stunning – both aesthetically and at the level of the impact on the viewer.

Guillermo Del Toro continues the universe and the imagination of Pan’s Labyrinth through this second installment. The first game offered us a unique creature that very lovecraftienne, the second plunges us into a universe inspired by mythology and fairy tales with many creatures, each more impressive than the others.

Although cruel, he inspires empathy in the viewer because it is resigned that he is fighting for his cause.

Hellboy II : The Legions of Gold-Cursed immerses us in a universe that is unique, spellbinding, and fascinating.

Del Toro develops the PDRF and the character of Abe Sapien, most notably through his relationship with Princess Nuala (I still have in the head the song of Barry Manilow “Can’t Smile Without You” ! Two buddies, beer, and Barry Manilow: a new design of the evening among friends).

Hellboy II : The Legions of Gold-Cursed immerses us in a universe that is unique, spellbinding, and fascinating. Resolutely turned towards the heroic-fantasy, this installment provides us with a bestiary of fantastic cinema exceptional (the Angel of Death probably being the creature the more successful the film). The die-hard fan of the comic book from Mike Mignola does will surely not, but you may not have liked the first game, or that you have not seen it, go see Hellboy II, which is one of the best super hero films and that sweating of generosity ” deltoresque “.

Peter Jackson has entrusted the reins of The Hobbit to Guillermo Del Toro : Personally, in view of the capacity of the gentleman, I look forward to see what this will give…
