Neo and the rebel leaders estimate that they have 72 hours until 250,000 probes discover Zion and destroy it and its inhabitants. During this, Neo must decide how he can save Trinity from a dark fate in his dreams.
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
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 »
I've seen Constantine three times and I enjoy it more each time I watch
it! It is truly well-done and extremely entertaining, and I can
guarantee that if you like horror, suspense and/or fantasy you will
love this movie! Keanu Reeves plays a very cool Constantine, who is a
modern-day exorcist but most certainly not to be confused with a
priest, as he has his issues and a burden of sins from his past that he
carries with him. Constantine is a very realistic and human hero who is
devoid of superpowers but has all the cool gadgets and the kick-ass
attitude needed to survive in a world slowly being invaded by demons
and scheming angels. He meets Angela (Rachel Wiesz) after she loses her
sister, Isabel to the forces of evil. She comes to Constantine in
search of an answer on where Isabel has ended up following her apparent
suicide. Constantine journeys to other realms/dimensions in an attempt
to get those answers, even paying a couple of visits to hell. Needless
to say, with such a plot the special effects, acting, sets, script and
even wardrobe have to be carefully conceived and executed to make it
believable, and they are... in spades.
Constantine achieves what all great movies always do: it takes you into
another world that makes you forget everything about your own world the
whole time you are watching it. And really, in the end, isn't that what
great cinema is all about?
