Synopsis:
John Constantine sees demons walk the earth, and he aims to do something about it: send them back to hell! As Constantine, The Matrix's Keanu Reeves fights a new otherworld foe in this eye-opening supernatural action thriller based on characters from the DC Comics/Vertigo Hellblazer Graphic Novels and set in a City of the Angels where spirit-world bounds have broken... and all hell is breaking loose. Holy water. A dragon's-breath flamethrower. A shotgun crafted from a crucifix. Armed with these and assisted by an intrepid cop (Rachel Weisz), John Constantine is a spiritual warrior gone to apocalyptic war. Be glad he's on your side.

Angels, demons, heaven and hell, God and Satan + wooden acting = utter tosh - Constantine review by RP

Spoiler Alert
26/06/2014

John Constantine is a sort of occult detective + exorcist. That should give you a feel for what this film is about and coupled with the fact that it has 'wooden' actor Keanu Reeves in the lead and also includes the extremely boring Shia LaBeouf in a minor role, should give you some idea of just how good it is. And no, it isn't good - it's pretty bad. But the effects are OK...

Brit actresses Tilda Swinton (as an androgynous Archangel Gabriel) and Rachel Weisz are the best things about it - but frankly they just seem to be there as a sop to the British-written comic book character of Constantine. He first appeared in 'Swamp Thing' but the storyline in the film is (very loosely) developed from 'Hellblazer' and more specifically, the 'Dangerous Habits' issues. 'Dangerous Habits' is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Constantine's constant smoking, which has led to terminal lung cancer.

If you're in the mood for a supernatural action thriller, compete with angels, demons, heaven and hell, God and Satan, mixed with a little irreverent dark humour, then this might be for you. If you're a fan of the comic books then it probably won't be for you. It wasn't for me - I'm not even sure why I rented it - it's utter tosh.

I'll give it 2/5 stars.
