Further Refining Hellboy

The Hellboy franchise is clearly close to Gullermo del Toro's heart. While it never quite reaches the heights of some of his self penned work like 'Pan's Labyrinth', he does seem to put a lot of effort into making faithful screen adaptations of the comic character. In a lot of ways, the first Hellboy movie really feels like a set-up for this second film.
 
Hellboy: The Golden Army is a fine sequel, but never really seems like it gets as exciting as it should. It's the kind of film that has so many special effects moments that it seems a bit too easy to get distracted from - but on the other hand, it's hard to dislike it, as it's intentions are pure - it just wants to entertain you for exactly two hours of your time.
