Review
Constantine is a miserable, grim-faced curmudgeon, but then he can see the devil's army here on earth and it's his job to send them back (unpleasantly) if they transgress the rules laid down by God and Satan...so it's perhaps understandable that he's not too perky. Coming across rather more naughty behaviour than he's used to, Constantine suspects all hell is about to break loose and with the help of an equally po-faced but attractive detective he sets about uncovering the conspiracy. Constantine is yet another film to plunder the wild imaginings of DC Comics and while there are some marvellous set pieces, cohesion and, dare I say it, believability have been ruthlessly removed from a character you suspect was considerably more intricate in his graphic form. Very entertaining nevertheless, but don't hold your breath for a sequel.
