Hellboy II - The Golden Army

The elves are done well. The beings in the troll market are interesting.

The rest of the film...meh.

There are odd breaks in the pace of this movie. Tension builds up, then all of a sudden melts away in a tender or silly scene, only to ratchet back up again.

Then there are the odd gaps in logic:
- bullets (even oversized ones) can blow away a small, flying faerie, but won't hit what's behind them.
- the realm of magical creatures is hard to access from New York, where stubborn trolls won't let anybody in. But a quick trip to Ireland, and a handicapped goblin shows right up to open the door and give tours.

Save your money, see Dark Knight or buy the first Hellboy on DVD.
