Hellboy II: The Golden Army - Movie Synopsis & Plot

With a signature blend of action, humor and character-based spectacle, the saga of the world's toughest, kitten-loving hero from Hell continues to unfold in "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army." Bigger muscle, badder weapons and more ungodly villains arrive in an epic vision of imagination from OscarĀ®-nominated director Guillermo del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth," "Hellboy").

After an ancient truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken, hell on Earth is ready to erupt. A ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures. Now, it's up to the planet's toughest, roughest superhero to battle the merciless dictator and his marauders. He may be red. He may be horned. He may be misunderstood. But when you need the job done right, it's time to call in Hellboy (Ron Perlman).

Along with his expanding team in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development--pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair), aquatic empath Abe (Doug Jones) and protoplasmic mystic Johann--the BPRD will travel between the surface strata and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who's accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.

MOVIE REVIEW

In 2004, then-relative unknown director Guillermo Del Toro adapted the challenging comic book "Hellboy" into a mildly successful and extremely entertaining movie about a tough, red demon with a stone hand who likes cigar and kittens, is in love with a firestarter who looks a hell of a lot like Selma Blair and who protects humanity from monsters, immortal Nazis and so on and so forth. Hellboy is not the kind of character that one would think audiences could relate to, but relate they did, mainly with the help of Ron Perlman's performance. Hellboy II: The Golden Army picks up where the first one left off... sort of.
