A very satisfying film.

The prime conceit of the movie is its gallows humor that seeps out like clotting blood from a decomposing corpse.

Blazes few new trails and bogs down in a confusing narrative muddle.

Rachel Weisz gives it her best shot, but she can't save the messy script from its own feelings self-importance.

I deeply loathe the Heaven-and-Hell genre to which this cinematic comic-book spectacular belongs.

It's just sad that a movie ostensibly based on a frequently intelligent comic book should end up a no-brainer.

Halfway through Constantine, a fully clad Keanu Reeves steps into a shallow pail of water, sits on a chair next to it and holds a cat in his lap.

This film combines elements of comic book fantasy with horror to create an enjoyable brew - sort of a film noir version of The Exorcist, crossbred with the stylization of The Matrix.

Peaks early, then descends into portentous nonsense.

While decidedly no one's idea of the John Constantine of the comics (who was originally modelled on Sting), Reeves acquits himself well enough.

A kind of gothic guerilla warfare, with moody demonologist John Constantine caught in between.

Reeves, meanwhile, has confidently entered his self-parodic period.

Empire Magazine

While lacking the richness of its source material, it remains an enjoyable, immoral and sometimes beautifully Gothic tale.

A little too muddled and erratically paced to command much interest. While some of the effects are cleverly worked-up, the picture seems more often to be on CGI autopilot.

It's occasionally cheesy, sometimes enjoyable, intermittently scary, and constantly spiked with celestial blatherskite.

Virtually anyone but Reeves would have made a better John Constantine.
