Trivia

The Wink suit weighed one hundred thirty pounds. Additionally, Brian Steele, who portrayed Wink, wore ten-inch stilts (going from his towering 6'5" frame to 7'3") while in the Wink suit. He lost over twelve pounds through sweating during the shoot. See more »

Goofs

The power outage in the auction scene reveals multiple mistakes simultaneously: not only should the large newsfeed monitors go dark instead of displaying static (since static would be a failure at the broadcast end, not the receiver), but also the laptops should continue uninterrupted, since (1) they were running their own spreadsheet software, not a broadcast reception, and (2) their AC power is for backup only. Laptops run on their own batteries and use AC power only for recharging. See more »

Quotes

Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: My son, would you turn off that wretched puppet, and brush your teeth?
Young Hellboy: Don't call him a puppet!
Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: I beg your pardon?
Young Hellboy: He's not a puppet! Howdy Doody's real!
Professor Trevor 'Broom' Bruttenholm: Well, Mr. Dee-dee Doo-doo will have to say good night.

Hellboy II - Back And Better Than Ever!
30 June 2008 | by brechtbugSee all my reviews

I just got back from a preview screening of "Hellboy II And The Golden Army" and of all the films I've seen so far this summer Hellboy is the ONLY one to exceed my expectations. I love the second films of a super hero franchise (Superman II, Spiderman II, The Incredible Hulk) because the heroes have been introduced and the origins are out of the way so the story can begin from the start unfettered. This film is not just about Action, Action, Action but about character development and their interaction. I liked "Pan's Labrynth" but felt a little bit let down when the creature's personalities were not explored enough. This film takes the time to establish who Abe Sapien is beyond being defined as a fish man. Johann Krauss is a great uptight Teutonic addition to the old team with a few tricks up his sleeve and Hellboy & Liz's professional and personal relationship get more play in this film. The detail in the troll market is amazing and the story rings true to the Mike Mignola comics without having to lift a story arc from any one specific past issue. Bravo! Guillermo del Toro! I can't wait for Hellboy III.
