The truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken and trouble is about to erupt. A ruthless leader is about to awaken an unstoppable army of creatures. It is up to the planet's superhero to battle the merciless dictator and his creatures.
Action Thriller - Like the first film, this is an effects- and action-heavy superhero
film with a quirky, often goofy, sense of humor. There's a lot more
bizarre creatures and monsters that may be unsettling for younger
viewers, and the action, while not bloody, is often brutal.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good Hellboy II is solid entertainment, but it's a shame such blemishes prevent it from achieving a higher level.
USA TodayFull Review Good While the various action sequences are exciting, an early one with swarms of voracious tooth fairies drags on. Still, Hellboy II is highly imaginative and consistently amusing without pretensions.

After an ancient truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken, hell on Earth is ready to erupt. A ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures. Now, it's up to the planet's toughest, roughest superhero to battle the merciless dictator and his marauders. He may be red. He may be horned. He may be misunderstood. But when you need the job done right, it's time to call in Hellboy (Ron Perlman).
Along with his expanding team in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense -- pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair), aquatic empath Abe (Doug Jones) and protoplasmic mystic Johann -- the BPRD will travel between the surface strata and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who's accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.
