Constantine is a 2005 fantasy film inspired by the Vertigo Hellblazer comic books. The film begins with the discovery of the Spear of Destiny in Mexico. It stars Keanu Reeves, Rachel Weisz and Shia LaBeouf.


Rolling Stone reviews it here. Roger Ebert has some rambling reflections here. Variety provides "damnation with faint praise". Moria doesn't like it either.

The Elder Son got this DVD as a Christmas present and was watching it late last night for the third time. The other 2 kids and I had never seen it before. We liked it. It was fun, even though it had less action than we expected. I won't mind at all seeing it again sometime, and I'd look forward to a sequel if it looked like there was a possibility of that.
