Hellboy II The Golden Army - Prologue: DVD Filler
3 July 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I'm not a Hellboy fan, I've never considered the stuff to be poor but simply underwhelming Hollywood tosh.

This prologue animated short feels like (And likely was) simply a bonus feature on the DVD for Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

The animation is mediocre, the narration and voice actors sound bored and the whole thing left me questioning why it even exists.

I'd say this is for hardcore Hellboy fans and absolutely nobody else.

The Good:

Harmless companion to the film

The Bad:

Pointless

Things I Learnt From This Short:

That such things simply aren't needed
