At an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Hamunaptra, an American serving in the French Foreign Legion accidentally awakens a mummy who begins to wreck havoc as he searches for the reincarnation of his long-lost love.
In this continuation to the adventure of the demon superhero, an evil elf breaks an ancient pact between humans and creatures, as he declares war against humanity. He is on a mission to release The Golden Army, a deadly group of fighting machines that can destroy the human race. As Hell on Earth is ready to erupt, Hellboy and his crew set out to defeat the evil prince before The Golden Army can destroy humanity's existence.Written by
FRANCHISE TRADEMARK: (51): There is the number "51" stenciled into the side of the compound, seen several times, since we find out in Hellboy (2004) that it's "sector 51". It may also, in both films, be a reference to Area 51. See more »
In Hellboy no armed guards were necessary for protecting the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. In Hellboy II: The Golden Army when the same building is shown there are two stationary guards and two men with a dog each on patrol. This doesn't tally because Bureau for Paranormal is supposed to be top secret when all of the guards are not very subtle. However, there was a break-in in the first movie. Perhaps they felt the need for heightened security. Also, they've 'come out' to the world now and don't feel the need for secrecy. See more »

This is something special; when a second film in a series is able to surpass or equal to it's predecessor. It's not just because the first Hellboy was so excellent, which it was, but they handled this second film with such care and pizazz, it's almost better, in ways, than the first.
It's very rare in a saga that the second films rises over the first, which is why when I say that Hellboy II: The Golden Army was almost in every way better than Hellboy, I mean it, and for me to love Hellboy like I do, that's saying a lot. Hellboy II had everything the first had, but with bigger and better qualities. The action was superb, story line was great, and acting, directing, etc. was just as perfect.
I was entertained through the entire film and I enjoyed every minute and in the end I was left with a big smile on my face for how great this sequel turned out to be, but here again, I still think it is on par with the first because of how the first was so perfect at setting up the story from the comics and how amazingly entertaining it was as well, with all the great performances that the second had and just when I put the two films together, I honestly can not decide which is better. All I have left to say is that if you loved Hellboy, this is no disappointment whatsoever, and you need to see it right away!
