An ordinary man with an extraordinary gift must save the planet from evil in this action-packed fantasy. Unknown to most people, the world is crowded with spirits both good and evil who walk among us in human guise. One of the few who can see these spirits is John Constantine (Keanu Reeves), but the responsibility of his vision is more than he can stand, and he tries to kill himself.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Blazes few new trails and bogs down in a confusing narrative muddle."
‑ Brian Lowry, Variety
"Peaks early, then descends into portentous nonsense."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"Visuals and attitude -- not for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The prime conceit of the movie is its gallows humor that seeps out like clotting blood from a decomposing corpse."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"This film combines elements of comic book fantasy with horror to create an enjoyable brew - sort of a film noir version of The Exorcist, crossbred with the stylization of The Matrix."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"I deeply loathe the Heaven-and-Hell genre to which this cinematic comic-book spectacular belongs."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Entirely beyond redemption."
‑ , Time Out
"An enjoyable revelation."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"Rachel Weisz gives it her best shot, but she can't save the messy script from its own feelings self-importance."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"While decidedly no one's idea of the John Constantine of the comics (who was originally modelled on Sting), Reeves acquits himself well enough."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Halfway through Constantine, a fully clad Keanu Reeves steps into a shallow pail of water, sits on a chair next to it and holds a cat in his lap."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Reeves, meanwhile, has confidently entered his self-parodic period."
‑ Ken Tucker, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A very satisfying film."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's just sad that a movie ostensibly based on a frequently intelligent comic book should end up a no-brainer."
‑ Daniel Etherington, Film4
"A kind of gothic guerilla warfare, with moody demonologist John Constantine caught in between."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
