The first one was scary and really macabre, but this one is more about fantasy and sci-fi than the 'raise the dead, nazi' stuff. There are a lot of scary parts, especially at the beginning, but when you get down to it, it's a violent love story. =) Very cute.
Just as good as the first, maybe even a little better.
Hellboy 2 The Golden Army is an imaginative, scary film with nonstop action and awesome special effects. Violence, disturbing images, and terror: 4/5 There are scary and huge monsters as well as many battle sequences, fights, and destruction. Sex/nudity: 1/5 Liz is pregnant Language: 2/5 Some mild language. Quality: 4/5 The storyline and script are terrific and there are great sequences of action. The acting is convincing and the characters are good. My mpaa rating: PG-13 for Intense sci-fi action and violence and some frightening/ disturbing images.
Charecters are shot, crushed, impaled, stabed, decapitated, and in one scene little fairys eat two people with lots of screaming to let viewers now about the pain. Also some imaginative creatures like the forest god, or the angel of death might frighten some young veiwers, the golden army themselves however kids will enjoy.
