Okay for fans of the movies
30 October 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Hellboy II: The Golden Army - Prologue" is a 6-minute animated short from 7 years ago and as the title states it's an introduction to Guillermo del Toro's second Hellboy movie. I really like both films, especially the second, so I was quite curious about this short film. And all in all, I was not disappointed, especially with the ending that shows us Hellboy as a young boy actually. Everything else is really only about the Golden Army and not about Hellboy, so we are listening to the story just like he does. People who like the Hellboy films as much as I do will maybe enjoy this short film. Still, it wasn't a great watch by any means. One thing I like about the movies is the humor. This is missing completely in here and also the animation style is not exactly my preferred choice. This is just personal preference though. All in all, it is not a bad watch and I recommend.
