Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Home Theater Review)

Hellboy, his pyrokinetic girlfriend, Liz, and aquatic empath, Abe Sapien, face their biggest battle when an underworld elven prince plans to reclaim Earth for his magical kindred. Tired of living in the shadow of humans, Prince Nuada tries to awaken an ancient force of killing machines, the all-powerful Golden Army, to clear the way for fantasy creatures to roam free. Only Hellboy can stop the dark prince and prevent humanity's annihilation.

Video Review

The blacks were inky black and the brights were crisp and reproduced well, even though this movie was meant to be dark. This 4K version is definitely clearer and sharper than the bluray version. And the special effects look just as good today as they did in 2008.

Sound Review

This was a great implementation of Atmos sound. You can gear the rain overhead and the surround sounds are exactly where you'd expect to hear them. Even the LFE was mapped well. I'm saying that the sound effects and the sound score is great and is an awesome accompaniment to this movie. The Dolby Atmos mix takes the home theater viewing to a whole other level!
