Hellboy is normally pretty big. His arms are big, his non-rock hand is bigger then a normal human hand, and his chest is wider then a normal humans. However when he is watching the news shirtless his body is normal sized. It's almost like they forgot to put on the fake muscles and just painted Ron Perlman red. The biggest tell tale sign of this is when you are looking at his arms. They seem like twigs compared to how he looks in the rest of the movie, and when he lifts his rock hand the arm/wrist that supports it looks too thin to actually be able to support it. See more »
What is it about super-hero films (X-Men 2, Spiderman 2, Superman II, and likely The Dark Knight) that the best of them are always the middle chapter; the second episode? I personally have no clue, but Hellboy II is not the exception.
It's got bigger action; more heavily stylized and expansive. It has a ton more amazing creatures. It's got an even wittier script, and a much better story. It's like the director was allowed to make everything as he saw fit; his vision is much fuller this time around.
Surprisingly, this movie rocks, and was actually the first film this year I was all around satisfied by.
