The genius of Guillermo del Toro shined brightly in Pan’s Labyrinth and the original Hellboy because of their relatively low budget.  Hellboy II was given such a high budget that del Tor’s mind was able to go a little too far, adding in so much that it ended up a bit cluttered.

QUALITY:
Good.  The picture gets a little grainy at times but the sound doesn’t waver.

BONUS FEATURES:
A Digital copy of the film, Featurettes, image galleries, commentary, deleted scenes.

Hellboy was a hell of a find a few years ago and the sequel was something I was looking forward to.  I guess because of the shock of the first one being good, it put too much hope in this one because I was a bit disappointed.  The picture is ok and the sound is great but the special features are a little useless.  The digital copy gets some bonus points though.
