About This Film



Constantine (2005):  Constantine is sort of a superhero.  This is really more of a horror film.  John Constantine is the anti-hero of the "Hellblazer" series from Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics.

    I enjoy this film.  I love the performances, action, and special effects.  The writing isn't always coherent but hey, it's just a big party.  John Constantine is a professional exorcist who sends demons back to hell.  Now he's literally in for the fight of his life and the whole world is at stake.  In the climactic battle, Constantine's greatest help comes from a most unexpected source.

    This film is Rated R, but it could have been PG-13.  The language isn't too bad.  The violence isn't overdone.  The wrist-cutting scene near the end is nasty, but it's more implied than shown, and that's the nastiest it gets.  That and the fact the subject matter is scary as hell is probably why it landed an R-rating.  "Constantine" is an action movie with intense horror imagery.  It won't warp young kids or other impressionable people, but it's definitely not for everybody.
