I really, really like Guillermo Del Toro, and Hellboy II really is a lot of fun. It seems like Mr. Del Toro is doing exactly what he wants and having a great time doing it, and I love that. It's really a surprisingly hilarious, nimble and subtle and clunky movie. It's really a pleasure to watch. Here's A.O. Scott's review. My thoughts to come shortly.
According to Box Office Mojo, it made 35 on it's opening weekend. It cost 50 to make, so even if it drops by 60 percent this weekend (which I don't think it will), it'll get it's earnings back much before DVD. Good job sir.
