Constantine (the movie)

  1. blew me away! what an awesome flic...great story...great acting (although keanu does kind of miss the mark it seems in a few scenes..best example is when he's in that church getting all mad speaking to Gabriel and you can tell he's trying to stick to his character, who is really stolid and cool, but the scene calls for emotion - anger - and he just kind of didn't nail it there)

    but anyway, i thought this movie was amazing. great effects..great story.....i had a big ol' smile on my face during the whole movie....i hope they make a sequel.

    Keanu Reeves missed a delivery? (Bill and Ted style) NO WAY!

    Seriously though, he, Carrie Anne Moss, the Captain of the Army, and Commander Locke ruined The Matrix sequels for me. Wouldn't have been so bad if half the people in the movie could have acted... heh. At least Keanu was in his element in the first Matrix (bumbling, wide-eyed, and clueless). However, we still got scorcher lines like "I know Kung Fu." and "There is no spoon."

    I did like him in The Devil's Advocate, though.

    Back to Constantine: I loved Hellblazer. I didn't see this movie because I know that Keanu is NOT John Constantine. I'm sure I'd like it if I didn't read the comic though, because Hellblazer had a great story.

    I had no prior knowledge of the comic, saw the movie, and generally liked it alot.when i saw the scene where his buddy shows him the dragon's breath, I realized that I had seen that part of that scene probably 3 (?) years ago on some TV show about either making the movie or something about K Reaves. (can't remember, but I know it's been a while) Made me wonder how long this thing has been in the can or in production.

    I saw a show where a movie reviewer who was also very familiar with the comic said that it was the best "movie converted from comic" that he had ever seen - i.e. it was truest to the original comic.

    So, whether or not you are familiar with the comic, you should enjoy it.
    About one minute into the film, you will have a heart attack for sure!!

    wow, i had actually heard a lot of other opinions about the movie. like that it completely sucked and had horrible acting, and getting like 1/2 star ratings. but that was also a bunch of critics and everything so i didnt really know what to make of it. but if you say its good, then i might have to go give it a shot.

    but ill tell you a good movie, Million Dollar Baby. Excellent, excellent, excellent. Awesome movie, go see it.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    I liked Constantine. Good movie, good special effects, and Rachel Weis can actually act.

    Can't say that I agree with acting being the problem with the Matrix movies (although they did always seem to be whispering). The story was flat out horrible. I think that rather than trying to work out a better story, they decided to try and compete with Lord Of The Rings. Bad idea. They rushed it, and ended up fucking it up. If you want to know exactly how badding acting/directing can completely screw up a movie. READ Star Wars Episode 1 and 2, and 4,5,6 for that matter. There is a pretty good story there, and Natalie Portman screwed it up in both movies, and Hayden Christiansen helped her suck at acting in Episode 2. Jar Jar is no where near the distraction in the book also.
