Constantine (2005)


“[speaking to God] I know I’m not one of your favorites. I’m not even welcome in your house. But, I could use a little attention. ” – John Constantine

Number of Times Seen – 1 (3 Oct 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A detective who deal with the supernatural tries to help a women discover what happened to her sister.

My Take on it – Really crazy and poorly made supernatural superhero film.

This is a character that I was familiar with from other mediums and something was “off” the entire way through.

Keanu Reeves is very miscast in the title role and doesn’t allow for the character to feel as if he really cares about what he is doing.

The story tries to throw in a few twists and turns along the way, but they fail to add any real kind of suspense to the story.

The pacing is also quite strange and that hurts things a lot as it tries unsuccessfully to unfold into a cohesive story which is quite a shame.

The villain isn’t developed well enough and the story feels too much as if they just are going trough the motions instead of trying to make a story that works.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – There is a scene where Constantine wraps his hands in a cloth, and lights it, to send the demons attacking Dodson back to Hell. The cloth is seen prior briefly and without explanation when Beeman is unloading his bag. This cloth was a piece of the burial shroud of Moses. Beeman’s explanation of the cloth when he presented it to Constantine was cut from the film. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
