Constantine Reviews

Constantine_Poster.jpgThis is one film I’ve been looking forward to with guarded enthusiasm. Now, the critics have rung in, and unfortunately they’re basically saying what a few friends of mine (who have already seen the film) have already told me. It’s not that good.

In the roundtable there are a few favorable reviews… but not many. I’m still going to see it… even if it’s just for the special effects (I’m always a sucker for lots of good effects).

Here’s what some of the critics have to say about Constantine:

“The actor’s black-on-white getup makes it plain that Constantine is one ‘whoa’ away from Neo-dom, and that Constantine likely represents the start of another Hollywood franchise with diminishing returns in its future.”
Mark Holcomb, VILLAGE VOICE

“Reeves is back to his usual monotoned self…as a routine demon-slayer who plays second fiddle to expensive special effects.”
Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWIRE

“Constantine is a pretentiously muddled, emotionally hollow, nonsensical film about Catholic angst, and a cancer-ridden hero who’s been to hell and back. ”
Emanuel Levy, EMANUELLEVY.COM

“The end explanation seems as reasonable and metaphysically valid as a Pokémon card battle. That’s OK, though, because Constantine is all about look, sound and feel.”
Phil Villarreal, ARIZONA DAILY STAR
