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

Trivia

The cigarettes that Constantine smokes in the movie are not real Chinese made cigarettes. The name means "Yangtse River" and the package was a special design for the film. See more »

Goofs

Whenever Angela draws her weapon, there is a sound of the hammer being cocked. The Smith and Wesson 6906 has a "bobbed" hammer, no "handle" to get your thumb onto easily. Cocking the weapon is difficult, especially since her thumb never goes near it. It's also policy for most police departments to fire the first shot without cocking the weapon first. In some departments, not following this policy is grounds for immediate dismissal. See more »

See it! You won't be sorry!
20 February 2005 | by (Naples, Florida) – See all my reviews

"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!
