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

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 »
If you are a fan of Keanu Reeves then you'll love this movie. Of course, he plays a similar character to this other roles but so do most actors. I believe most actors are merely personalities and Keanu has a cool one at that.
The special effects were great and there were many picturesque scenes that will leave an imprint on your mind.
Even though I had never read the comic book I really appreciated this movie for it's religious theme. I think anyone can relate to the movie's notions of Heaven and Hell, good and evil.
The movie was funny, had just enough action, cool weapons, and breathtaking scenes. Most importantly, watching it, I easily felt transported into that world.
Great movie overall. I hope there is a sequel.
