When threads from Batman's past begin to unravel, the race is on for him to crack Hush's deadly game. Strange alliances will form and shattering secrets will be revealed when Hush's silence is finally broken.
A decade after a tragic mistake, Chas Chandler and occult investigator, John Constantine, set out to cure Chas's daughter, Trish, from a demonically induced coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels, and the brutal Aztec God, Mictlantecuhtli, they just might have the chance to outsmart the demon Beroul and save Trish's soul.
When Chas and John are in the car being chased by demon dogs, Chas asks John if he can "magic them away". John answers: "Who the hell do you think I am? Benedict bloody Cumberbatch?" No doubt a reference to Cumberbatch's character Stephen Strange in the Marvel movie Doctor Strange. Strange is an accomplished sorcerer. See more »
That's a mini review about the movie, not the tv show (even if the show is part of the movie). I watched the film yesterday which contained the first 5 episodes of the animated show and took them further into a full, completed story.
I don't blame people who didn't like the show since the episodes were ridiculously short (only 5 minutes each) but the film is a different story. Matt Ryan shines once again as Constantine with good support from the rest of the cast. The story is probably the darkest story I've seen in an animated film and there are many shocking scenes and surprises. As I mentioned in the title, this is undoubtedly the best adaption of John Constantine. The character is actually a damaged character, haunted from his past, trying to find some purpose in life (at least that's how the original Hellblazer presented him to us) and the film captures that perfectly.
I liked the live action series, I loved the Justice League Dark film but City of Demons goes even deeper and gives us the darkest and more mature animated film/series in the DC Universe. Highly recommended.
