Review: Constantine

Following his Matrix Trilogy with another special effects heavy movie might not have been such a smart move. Mainly focusing on good and evil, angels and demons, Keanu plays some kind of detective trying to balance of the powers that be. As an actor, he might lose credibility now, playing his role VERY Keanu Reeve-ish, as in characteristic movements, delivery and timing of his lines etc (of course, he might have been typecasted, and the character from the comic book is just like that, but I think that’s highly unlikely the match would be this exact). All in all, he’s a pretty cold frog (AGAIN).
Storywise, it’s not that interesting. It tries hard though, with deeper plotlines (that are not developed), but the characters are just as undeveloped. Take into account that the heroes/enemies all have some weird not so positive appeal to them (probably due to the setting of this all), and your left with the eye candy (which has nothing new to offer). Definitely not a must-see for regular movie-goers.7-.

    Still a high grade though. 😕

    Movies in the “pretty standard” category usually end up with a grade between 6 and 7.
