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
On the side walls of Beeman's bowling alley there is a logo of three balls each having a line that juts off from them, looking more like  than anything. This can be seen at the beginning of the scene where Beeman discovers the truth to the demons trying to pass over. See more »
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 »
"Constantine" is a dark, yet dazzling film. A terrific story backed up by spectacular special effects and great cinematography pull us into a dark and dangerous world - a world where half-angels and half-demons whisper to us mortals as God and Satan use us as pawns in an apocalyptic game of chess. Cursed with ability too see these spirits, John Constantine finds himself right in the middle of this showdown.
Keanu Reeves gives a fantastic turn as John Constantine. He infuses Constantine with a grim sense of purpose and dark humor. He is the ultimate anti-hero, and Reeves deftly takes Constantine from being someone we simply root for to someone we actually like and respect.
Rachel Weisz is terrific as well. Her tortured and soulful performance is the best of the film. Shia LaBeouf also blew me away.
I have not read the Hellblazer comics, but standing alone "Constantine" is a great film. This one is a must see!
