Constantine tells the story of irreverent supernatural detective John Constantine, who has literally been to hell and back.

Warner Brothers Constantine (Blu-ray)In the grand scheme of theological thrillers, Constantine aspires for the greatness of The Exorcist but ranks more closely with The Order. Based on the popular Hellblazer comic book series, and directed with nary a shred of intelligence by music video veteran Francis Lawrence, it’s basically The Matrix with swarming demons instead of swarming machines. Keanu Reeves slightly modifies his Matrix persona as John Constantine,who roams the dark-spots of Los Angeles looking for good-evil, angel-devil half-breeds to ensure that "the balance" between God and Satan is properlymaintained. An ancient artifact and the detectivetwin of a woman who committed evil-induced suicide (Rachel Weisz) factor into the plot, which is taken so seriously that you’ll want to stand up and cheer when Tilda Swinton swoops down as the cross-dressing angel Gabriel and turns this silliness into the camp-fest it really is. The digital effectsare way cool (dig those hellspawn with the tops of their heads lopped off!), so if you don’t mind ajuvenile lesson in pseudo-Catholic salvation, Constantine is just the movie for you!
