Add Constantine to the list of movies that took comic-book concepts, but left the soul on the page.

It's a ponderous bore. Dull dialogue, dull situations and a serious lack of urgency hinder what should be a high-stakes slice of pseudo-religious heresy.

Reeves has a deliberately morose energy level in the movie, as befits one who has seen hell, walks among half-demons, and is dying.

An uneven amalgamation of the brilliant and the preposterous, Constantine left me by turns intrigued, confused, and wary.

Beneath the rings of absurdity, there's a degree of seriousness.

The Matrix meets The Exorcist (with a little Chinatown thrown in for good measure) in Keanu Reeves's just-below-okay supernatural adventure.

It's just so awful that the crew must have been snickering.

It just so happens that I always had a theory on how to visit hell, too: Sit in a chair and watch a Keanu Reeves movie.

Lawrence is a skilled copycat, and his adeptness at creating a mood of otherworldly unease helps make up for his story's familiarity.

While structured like a traditional fantasy action film, Constantine only manages to be truly exciting maybe twice during the running time.

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

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

The idea of a guy trying to buy his way into heaven is good, but this movie doesn't take it anywhere other than the usual set of world saving scenarios.

It's difficult to understand what Constantine is about, or indeed, whether it's a good movie.

...a spiritually spry yet lumbering fantasy...The technological flourishes are a marvel to behold but the film's erratic journey is as choppy as a country dirt road

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

Constantine forces us to make giant leaps of faith over its gaping holes in logic and plot. And unfortunately, we fall quick and hard.

Save yourself the cash on this one; it's too silly to be scary and too stupid to be watchable.

(Constantine) fails to capture the imagination. It is what it is, a cinematic comic book.
