Hellboy II: The Golden Army

HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY
I’m a huge defender of adaptations altering material to fit a new medium, but this sequel strays even farther from Mike Mignola’s comics’ beautifully realized Lovecraftian tone into an off-putting comedic fantasy (and I detest the parental turn of events). Another missed opportunity for a unique superhero / horror hybrid.

that director has got an amazing imagination, much like his work in Pan's Labyrinth
