Hellboy II: The Golden Army

The Golden Army begins when an ancient truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken; Hell on earth is ready to erupt. Hellboy 2 tells the tale of a ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below, defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures. Its up to the planets toughest, roughest superhero to battle the merciless dictator and his marauders. He may be red, he may be horned, he may be misunderstood, but when you need the job done right, its time to call in Hellboy (Ron Perlman), and the B.P.R.D.

The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD) will travel between the surface world and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal, along with his expanding team pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz Sherman (Selma Blair), aquatic empath Abe (Doug Jones), and protoplasmic mystic Johann Krauss (James Dodd), the newest member of the BPRD. Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who is accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.

A slip-up results in the F.B.I. being forced to reveal the existence of BPRD to the general public. Brash old Hellboy doesn't play well with the public, which only increases the instability of his already-turning-rough relationship with Liz. Relations with fellow paranormal Johann (who is a sort of ectoplasmic spirit held within a very special containment suit), a reserved by-the-book type sent to take charge of the unpredictable and insubordinate Hellboy, only increase tensions within the group. But in the end they've all got to come together to fight Prince Nuada (Luke Goss), who, with his army of goblins, faeries, and the like, is attempting to resurrect an unstoppable army of fearless golden automatons once controlled by his father.

Other mistake: When one of the agents is ambushed by the Tooth Fairies he is reduced to a skeleton, with his teeth still visible. However, it was earlier stated that Tooth Fairies start by eating the teeth, then finish off the rest of a body.

More trivia for Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Question: Early in the film, it appears as though Mr. Wink's metal hand can completely detach itself (note how it has to crawl back to him in the museum), yet he is killed in the Troll Market when his hand (and the chain attached) become stuck in the giant trash-compactor machine. Why did he not just detach his hand at this point, as he did earlier?

Answer: The hand never fully detaches. It still has the chain connected to it when it was crawling back at the beginning. It simply crawled back until the chain finally drew itself in long enough to pull it in faster than it was crawling.

Yep that's a good answer. In the scene at the museum at the beginning of Hellboy 2, Mr Wink punched the two security guards through the door, but his hand was still attached to the chain, it never completely disconnected from the chain or his body. Then the hand turned itself around and started crawling back to wink, at which point the chain zipped the hand back up to Winx' wrist.
