Trivia

David Hyde Pierce did the voice of Abe Sapien in Hellboy (2004), while Doug Jones played the physical part. For Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008), Jones also does the voice. The reason is because the producers hoped Pierce's name would make the first film a box-office smash. But he refused to be credited, because he felt Abe Sapien was Jones' work, and as such, did no promotions nor interviews, nor even attended the premiere. 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

[first lines]
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.

The Second is Always Best
7 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

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.
