Saving the world is a hell of a job; Believe it or not - he's the good guy; Good never looked so bad...  In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, these are a few of the taglines for a huge summer movie that opens today at theaters everywhere - Hellboy II: The Golden Army by Universal Studios.  Just by seeing the trailers that have been on televsion for the last couple weeks, it looks like it's going to be great movie that both kids and adults alike will want to see.  One review said that it is by far the most imaginative action movie in ages - a mix of epic fantasy, tender romance, broad comedy and double-barreled excitement that will surely satisfy.  Not to shabby considering the main character is a spawn of satan called Hellboy who apparently also has a down-to-earth side with a fondness for Cuban cigars, Mexican beer, TV and candy.  Here's a quick "what's it about" in a nutshell:  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 (aka: The Golden Army).  Now, it's up to the planet's toughest, roughest superhero Hellboy - or "Red" to his friends - to battle the merciless dictator and his army. 


I'm looking forward to seeing this movie because I like the fact that it has a little bit of everything in it - action, comedy, romance and sci-fi all rolled into one; good v/s evil.  With a so-called superhero as charming as "Red" you can bet we'll see a lot of Hellboy's running around during the Halloween season.  At Halloween Express we have everything from the vinyl face mask to the full deluxe costume in both children and adult sizes.  So hurry and order one today!!
