Neo and the rebel leaders estimate that they have 72 hours until 250,000 probes discover Zion and destroy it and its inhabitants. During this, Neo must decide how he can save Trinity from a dark fate in his dreams.
John Constantine is approached by Det. Angela Dodson who needs his help to prove that her twin sister Isabel's death was not a suicide. The dead woman was a devout Catholic and Angela refuses to accept she would have taken her own life. She's asked Constantine for help because he has a reputation for dealing with the mystical. In fact, he is a demon hunter whose sole purpose on Earth is to send demons back to the nether regions. John himself has been to Hell and knows that he is destined to return there on his death - but hopes his good deeds may find him a place in Heaven. As he looks into Isabel's death, he realizes demons are trying to break through to the human world, and his battles lead him into a direct conflict with Satan. Written by
Personally, this movie is really a memorable one to me. I was 15 when I watched it in theater. And totally stunned by the visuals and world of it.
The stories of "Exorcist and Devil" have already been told thousands of times by many kinds of media. Even in the era of Jesus Christ himself. "Constantine" proved that with such a classic theme, filmmakers can still make something different from others.
With great visual effects, it shows us the world of hell, which is something you might never forget. Even the movie itself was released in 8 years ago, still, they are fascinating and unique enough to stand the test of time.
The plot is nothing special, to be honest. It is another "kill the bad guys" stuff. However, props and directions are successfully making diversion to it. You can't miss one single moment of scenery that is full of gadgets and super-natural being dancing in the dark street of Los Angeles. And of course,Keane Reeves. He is taking control of whole atmosphere of this film. I think the role of John Constantine is definitely settle with him.
It's not the movie liked by everyone I suppose, however it's not cheesy B-class film either. It's well directed and modernized occult movie. If you like dark fantasy or anti-hero style story, it's definitely the one for you to watch.
