Product Description

Amazon.ca

In the grand scheme of theological thrillers, Constantine aspires for the greatness of The Exorcist but ranks more closely with The Order. Based on the popular Hellblazer comic book series, and directed with nary a shred of intelligence by music video veteran Francis Lawrence, it's basically The Matrix with swarming demons instead of swarming machines. Keanu Reeves slightly modifies his Matrix persona as John Constantine, who roams the dark-spots of Los Angeles looking for good-evil, angel-devil half-breeds to ensure that "the balance" between God and Satan is properly maintained. An ancient artifact and the detective twin of a woman who committed evil-induced suicide (Rachel Weisz) factor into the plot, which is taken so seriously that you'll want to stand up and cheer when Tilda Swinton swoops down as the cross-dressing angel Gabriel and turns this silliness into the camp-fest it really is. The digital effects are way cool (dig those hellspawn with the tops of their heads lopped off!), so if you don't mind a juvenile lesson in pseudo-Catholic salvation, Constantine is just the movie for you! --Jeff Shannon

Format:DVD
I have no familiarity whatsoever with the graphic novel upon which this film is based, so I can only address the film in and of itself. And I must say that I rather enjoyed it for the most part. Anything with angels and demons always interests me, and this film put a quirky spin on the agents of God and Lucifer. Since John Constantine seems to be a pretty tight-lipped fellow who doesn't reveal much of himself to anyone, Keanu Reeves seems like a pretty good pick to play the part - there's not too much acting required for this one.

So what's this all about? Well, John Constantine has this gift (or curse) to see and interact with creatures from both heaven and hell; he's already been to hell and back once - literally - and therein lies his biggest problem. Since he did commit suicide, he's not eligible for a ticket to heaven later on - and this second life he was given is hurtling toward an impending end thanks to all those cigarettes he's chain-smoked for years. He's content to go his own moping way, dealing with particularly difficult exorcisms when called upon and generally just bemoaning his awful fate. Then a female cop (Rachel Weisz) shows up asking for his help; her sister supposedly committed suicide, but she doesn't believe it. Both Rachel and her sister were pretty special, for they could also see the things Constantine sees (although it takes some rather intense training for Constantine to reawaken those abilities in his new, temporary partner). It soon seems obvious that something big is going down. More and more demons are trying to cross into our world, violating a big treaty between God and Lucifer (who would have thought that demons couldn't be trusted?), and that just doesn't bode well for anybody.

Excellent movie. Everything did not happen in the first five minutes. A plus was the ending then add in the glimpse of wings at the very end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Demon Noir Dec 1 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You've got to love a "Chandler-esque crime-er", with an Archangel & a career-psychic, arguing about stuff in 1st reel. "...I'm seeing a lot of soul-traffic lately, Gabriel. Maybe The Boss could give me an extension...Do our side some good, these days... ".

Intense, cynical John Constantine "sees things"--has done since his elementary-school days. He was institutionalized in his teens & manged to kill himself--which means he's got just 1 place to go...The titular Constantine lives in a world almost none of us ever visit--but he's got more'n one dirty little secret: also, he's about to exit our world, for good...

Throw in pale-skinned, blonde-haired, slender Tilda Swinton ( Gabriel), lovely, serious, russet-haired Rachel Weisz (as an L.A.P.D. detective & eventually, Constantine's nominal client), Peter Stormare (a white-suited "southern Gentleman"--version of Lucifer), Shia Lebouf (an L.A. cabbie obsessed with Witchcraft & Demonism, & who's John's faithful apprentice), Djimon Hounsou (a latter-day African Witch-doctor, who runs a nightclub), Max Baker (an insect-obsessed academic/ gear-fixer-upper) & a greasy, dapper, malicious Max Baker (1/2-demon Balthazar--causing all kinds of...well, H#ll) & you have a cool ensemble cast that spins a cool yarn.

Set in a World where the general tenets of Judeao-Christian spirituality is as literal & far-reaching ("...the world behind the world... behind every door & window... ") as the criminal code, this story sees the titular John Constantine riding through the streets of L.A., like a berserk immigration detective, deporting demi-demon's "sorry asses" back to you-know-where...

4.0 out of 5 stars Luv Keanu Reeves Sept. 27 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
What can I say? I enjoyed Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weiss in another movie together and it was interesting to see the protagonist facing death and eternal damnation in seemingly futile struggle against it. Interesting take on religion and the agents of heaven and hell and what is considered insanity being the perception of both.

3.0 out of 5 stars A long anti-smoking commercial July 16 2006
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The story is simple; self-centered John Constantine: Hellblazer (Keanu Reeves) did a "no no" in his youth ensuring him a place in the underworld and to compound the problem he is to be short lived due to a smoking habit.

Mean time he, due to his accident he has the ability to see angles and demons. Even though he is conceited and knows where he will be going he still finds time to do some good for mankind and in the process send a few demons back where they came from.

Something has gone horribly wrong with the balance. And with the aid of his young sidekick and a medium that is well done by (Rachel Weisz) he intends to get to the nature of the problem.

The character of Constantine comes from the DC comic world and has been modified a tad to fit a movie with a beginning middle and end.

I could not help but notice Tilda Swinton who played Gabriel. She made you feel that you were watching a first class movie.

The only redeeming feature of value of the movie is not the movie it's self but the audio track that explains wheat they are trying to do in the making of the movie. In fact you could just bypass the movie and listen to the voice over audio instead and save yourself two hours.

I think I should have watched the two disk version as even with the audio track they refer to many things that are not in the movie.

Little Buddha ~ Keanu Reeves

Bram Stoker's Dracula (Superbit Collection) ~ Keanu Reeves
