Good ideas are present, but they don't shine thanks to the fact the film is an overlong, incoherent and boring mess.

Nothing was memorable in this fantasy drama about John Constantine. The script could have been better, same goes for the lead.

Not really sure what its intention was, at least the effects were surreal.

John Constantine, an exorcist whose job is specifically to send demons to hell has the ability to cross over hell and fight against demon spirits roaming on earth. He meets investigator Angela, but that doesn't stop his work. He works much more instead to uncover what's behind the death of Angela's twin sister.
To tell you honestly, I didn't understand the whole film.

Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weisz are both good to watch, and it is good to see Shia LaBeouf here. All the thrilling were good but not everything worked on the effects. Visual effects were like "no, please."

John Constantine is trying to save his soul by hunting down and "deporting" demons who intrude on human affairs when he stumbles across a psychic whom the son of The Devil intends to use to escape from Hell. Keanu Reeves revisits Neo as the chain smoking anti-hero of Constantine, a film that can be thought of as "The Matrixorcist". It's a comic book adaptation that blends religious mythology with superhero conceits and the format of Noir thrillers. Since The X-Files, this idea has been done a hundred times, but rarely so well; the plot is a lot more involving than most of this type of thing, Constantine is a far more interesting central character than that of the usual super hero schtick and the mythology is used very creatively. The visual effects are also great having a really nice …
