Storyline

John Constantine is approached by Det. Angela Dodson who needs his help to prove that her twin sister Isabel's death was not a suicide. The dead woman was a devout Catholic and Angela refuses to accept she would have taken her own life. She's asked Constantine for help because he has a reputation for dealing with the mystical. In fact, he is a demon hunter whose sole purpose on Earth is to send demons back to the nether regions. John himself has been to Hell - as a young man he too committed suicide and now knows that he is destined to return there on his death - but hopes his good deeds may somehow find him a place in Heaven. As he looks into Isabel's death, he realises demons are trying to break through to the human world, and his battles lead him into a direct conflict with Satan. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Father Hennessy is drinking himself to death in the liquor store the first two bottles he grabs are wine bottles. We hear the tell-tale sound of a cork popping, but not only would it be physically impossible to pull out a cork, that had not been previously opened, without a corkscrew, all corked bottles are sealed with foils, which we also don't see him removing. While there are cheap wines that have a twist-open top, the cork sound is an error. See more »

Sorry...I liked it...
25 July 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is a fable...it's not supposed to be so rooted in reality that we scoff at the implausibilities and the plot holes... We're not watching it to say "look at how that happened" or "why is it all happening here in L.A. when we have these worldwide problems" or...whatever... It has to happen somewhere; either you buy off on the fable and get into the story or you flush it...

While not being Catholic, through theological edification I was able to make sense of storyline, ironies, metaphors, etc... I liked Reaves' character and again, it's a matter of preference - love or hate - but he played Constantine's miserable demon-cop just right - Reaves continues to find rolls suited to his particular, dark style. Special effects were great, and I give the film kudos for not diving in and becoming an effects extravaganza...it remains online to the story and where we're going... Weisz as heroine and Peter Stormare as Lucifer himself were well-cast. What can I say? It was great diversion and a fun DVD to watch. Check it out!
