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 and knows that he is destined to return there on his death - but hopes his good deeds may find him a place in Heaven. As he looks into Isabel's death, he realizes 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

In the lower right-hand corner of Isabel's toe tag, there's the number 616. While some people interpret the Mark of the Beast to be 666, others interpret it to be 616, hence its appearance on the toe tag. In the Book of the Revelation, the Number of the Beast is "six hundred, threescore, and six." (666) See more »

Goofs

Near the end, when Kramer is proceeding to place the blessed cross into the emergency sprinkler system, he shoots a hole into a section of the top of the tank. Firstly, it is highly unlikely he would be able to blast a perfect circular hole into a (steel?) water tank meant to supply a building's fire sprinkler system with a shotgun, even with magnum buckshot or special blessed rounds. Secondly, if he was able to, the diameter of the hole Kramer actually makes is nowhere near wide enough for the cross to fit, no matter how he manipulates it. Hence, the camera simply cuts away to the cross dropping into the tank. See more »

Very Very Good
26 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Gosh, people spend so much time bashing Keanu Reeves. This film is actually quite good and the plot is quite good. Great special effects, enough religious creepiness to make to think, and a lot of action. Not quite as good as The Phophecy but damn close. Don't trust Keanu haters. It wouldn't matter how grand a film was, if he's in it they will trash it. Just rent the flick and judge for yourself. Yes, it's dark, and yes Keanu is wooden in his dialogue at times, but the movie is fantastic to watch. For anyone who has ever doubted religion, spirits, and our place in the world with them, then this is the movie to see. Great supporting cast, starting with Shia LeBouf who I like more and more with each role he takes on.
