This flick is a lot of fun, whilst not staying true
to the comic book that has been around forever and a day. Starring Keanu
Reeves as magician John Constantine, we are faced with a supernatural
world where demons are real, so is magic. Constantine is forced into a
battle that is not his as he is approached to solve what appears to be a
suicide. A woman saying that the dead woman is her sister insists that
itís not and Constantine decides to take it personally when a friend of
his is killed by a demon.
Add to all that the fact that Satan wants John to
burn in Hell forever and Heaven wonít take him, just adds to the
intensity of this cool gothic adventure.
With stunning visuals, gripping story and a Reeves
that for once plays a role that is not totally wooden, Constantine is
well worth the purchase. This movie is available as a double disc set
that deals with the making of the film, the comic and also a selection
of deleted scenes and other bits and pieces.
Grab this one up, you really wonít be disappointed.
From the disc:
Hell wants him.
Heaven won't take him. Earth needs him.
Based on the DC/Vertigo comic
book Hellblazer, Constantine tells the story of irreverent supernatural
detective John Constantine who has literally been to hell and back. When
Constantine teams up with skeptical policewoman Angela Dodson (Rachel
Weisz) to solve the mysterious suicide of her twin sister, their
investigation takes them through the world of demons and angels that
exists just beneath the landscape of contemporary Los Angeles.
