“Demon. Born from a womb of shadows, sent to destroy their world and you still believe you belong?!” – A quote from Prince Nuada which basically encompasses the main theme of Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Hellboy is back once again to save the Earth from evil. Guillermo del Toro, who is well-known for his film Pan’s Labyrinth, continues his style of weird fiction and fantasy with this sequel. It’s been a while since I watched the original Hellboy, but I remember that it left me feeling empty and confused. I wanted more. When Hellboy II was released, however, I wasn’t to convinced that I wanted to see a sequel of an average film. After reading The Decade of the Superhero Film II by Ben Skipper, I became convinced that I had to check out Hellboy II: The Golden Army. The main thing I love about this movie is that Hellboy is a character, when looked at closely, that we all can relate to. He strives for acceptance from his peers.
