NPR reviewers love Hellboy

NPR has not one but two glowing reviews of the new Hellboy sequel.
There's an audio (and text) review from Kenneth Turan here.

And Nathan Lee's review excerpted below.

"...moral nuance and mythic resonance, are everywhere on view in Hellboy II, a rare blockbuster with soul. Del Toro brings a meticulous artisanal attention to his material, suffusing it with uncommon subtlety and care.

And for all its comic-book gobbledygook — the plot is sheer delirious nonsense — there's a mischievous, childlike wonder to Hellboy II, a guileless belief in itself and its audience. It's a summer joyride that remembers the joy."
