A handful of scenes depicting the high temperatures on the devil's home turf are plausibly horrific, but the rest barely registers.

Constantine deserves a cult following and should be remembered for all the things it did right instead of its perceived wrongs.

Keanu Reeves seems to be trapped in the Matrix.
November 18, 2019
Most of the script consists of speeches explaining too many intricate rules of supernatural battles between good and evil. Even the cast seems bored.

Constantine works by using Hellblazer as a jumping-off point...it creates a moody piece of modern, metaphysical noir.

Constantine gives the impression of somber shadows, but it's too dingily distracting to leave a bleak impression.
December 4, 2018
It's Keanu's offbeat humor and subtle sensitivity that prevent John Constantine from becoming an angsty, chain-smoking, grimly macho cliché.

John Wick: Book of Revelation as Constantine dispatches demons amid dark rainy streets, visiting Papa Midnite's neutral bar where no business can be conducted between angels and demons. Reeves is brilliantly weary; Swinton's Gabriel briskly unsympathetic.

The complicated narrative and countless supporting characters from the comic are boiled down into the key elements that make CONSTANTINE an excellent standalone story and a perfect introduction to what should have been a long-running series.

It all plays out the way you'd expect, the balance is tipped, something bad is coming, woman in danger, last minute rescue.

Days are seared by burning sunlight, nights swallow the world and bring out the demons, and Hell is an Earth burning in the nuclear fires of Armageddon.

Visuals and attitude -- not for kids.

An enjoyable revelation.
April 29, 2009
A very satisfying film.
April 18, 2009
The prime conceit of the movie is its gallows humor that seeps out like clotting blood from a decomposing corpse.
October 18, 2008
Blazes few new trails and bogs down in a confusing narrative muddle.
October 18, 2008
Rachel Weisz gives it her best shot, but she can't save the messy script from its own feelings self-importance.
October 18, 2008
I deeply loathe the Heaven-and-Hell genre to which this cinematic comic-book spectacular belongs.
August 22, 2008
It's just sad that a movie ostensibly based on a frequently intelligent comic book should end up a no-brainer.
August 22, 2008
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.
