This Summer has seen some waddling turkeys (Indiana Jones 4, Clone Wars, Hulk) but some soaring eagles too. Iron Man was excellent, Hancock showed promise and The Dark Knight, of course, has simply ridden roughshod over everything else. But do give Hellboy II: The Golden Army a chance. Visually, it's stunning and by far the most inventive film you'll see this year. It has its faults, as most films do, but they are more than overshadowed by some great performances from Luke Goss, Doug Jones and Family Guy's Seth McFarlane as the voice of gaseous entity Dr Johan Krauss. And the Golden Army of the title is brilliantly brought to life with some stunning CG work.
Go and see it. You'll laugh. You'll gasp. You'll say 'What the Hell was that??!!'
