Simply superb would be the phrase that came to mind. A combination of dark humour and suspense, Constantine manages to be a comic-book adaptation that doesn't take itself too seriously and yet doesn't descend into mediocrity. Reeves brings his usual brooding acting style, matched by a good performance by Weiss, and a lovely cameo by Peter Stormare near the end polishes the film off. Unmissable.
After trying to kill himself John Constantine has now got to try and earn his place back in heaven by ridding the earth of hellbound demons but things are getting worse as the Devil's son is trying to resurrect himself to unleash the Apocalypse.
Overall, the film was very good. However it did have the tendency to drag on so for those who like their action non-stop beware but stick with it because it does pay off. Also for the faint-hearted there are some 'jumpy' moments so beware also.
With some good performances by Reeves and Weisz, a good story, superb special effects and some jump out of your seat moments nothing can stop Constantine from entering your DVD collection.
