Constantine

Jays Rating:
Actors:

Bullets forged from religious charms and golden guns shaped like crucifixes are just some of the weapons used in the action-horror film Constantine, which was adapted from the comic book Hell Blazer. (Don’t ask me why kids read this trash.) John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) is a supernatural private eye investigating the abnormal number of suicides in Los Angeles. Constantine receives a tip when police woman Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) asks him to look into the suicide of her twin sister, Isabel. As a mediator between good and evil, Constantine travels to Hell to find out if Isabel ended up there after she jumped off the roof of a mental hospital. (At this point in the movie I was already bored and jumping off the roof of the theater to end my agony sounded pretty good.) Constantine’s investigation takes him into the world of demons and angels and soon realizes the supernaturals are trying to start a spiritual war on earth. Constantine jumps into action and fights the demons of Hell with holy water, incantations and even a holy shotgun. The shotgun must have gone off when they were writing the script because it was riddled with holes. Besides the script, I don’t know which was worse – the confusing plot, the ridiculous dialogue or the uninteresting characters. I also had the feeling the director didn’t know which direction the plot was going to go so it went straight down. No pun intended. Both the plot and picture were dark which helped hide bad computer graphics but then everything is dark to me. My recommendation? Save the 8 bucks and watch a rerun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’m giving this film a D rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
