Did anyone enjoy the movie?

#1 Posted by Supreme Marvel (11264 posts) - - Show Bio

I have never read the comics so i wouldn't know what was from the comics and what isn't. But the only thing i do know is the he is from Liverpool [city where i am from :)] and in the film i don't think he is.

you dont see many DC characters from England, so to see this i was happy and to see that he was from Liverpool i was ever more happy to know there is a DC character from the city where i was born.

But does anyone like the film?

I did

I did enjoy it but that was from someone that has never read any of the comics. I would give the movie a 6 out of ten. Worth watching 1-5 times but not worth seeing in theater or buying (Yes I have my own rating system for movies)

"Which movie?"

I thought it was kind of mediocre. I didn't appreciate getting pummeled over the head with the anti-smoking message through the whole movie. Could've been much better.

You might want to put spoiler the next time you wreck the movie! but i enjoyed this film,

it could have been made much better though. It was nothing like i thought it would be, as it was a tad underated, so i expected the worst, but i acctually enjoyed it when i started to get into it.

overall i would give it 3 out of 5, it's not the worst thing you'll ever spend money on, but i would just watch it free of charge anyway.

i thought it was boring though i dont remember the anti-smoking aspect... i must have been yawning at the time.

Good movie. Cool (glance) cameo of the real Domino Harvey.

Haven't read the comics either, and i thought it was horrible.

And Keanu Reeves couldn't even dye his hair for the role? Pathetic.

I haven't read the comics but I didn't really like the movie.

#25 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

read the comics, you'll actually end up liking John Constantine rather than at the end of the movie where you thought he was a loser

It was okay. It would have been better if they did not use the name Constantine because the movie and comic versions are very different.

#27 Posted by Silver Knight75 (1145 posts) - - Show Bio

I liked it 

#28 Posted by Ptero (184 posts) - - Show Bio

Movie could have been better.
 
They could have had an actor who looked the part and had the accent.  I was annoyed at the change to the very core character.
 
Otherwise. as a movie its all right.  As hellblazer its poor.

#29 Posted by MrMiracle77 (1659 posts) - - Show Bio

As a film in its own right, its pretty good.  As an adaptation of Constantine?  Not so much.

I enjoyed it I wish there was more fighting and less close ups and reaction shots of Keanu

#31 Posted by aztek_the_lost (28224 posts) - - Show Bio

I have mixed feelings about it, I thought it was pretty decent at first...and then I started reading Hellblazer...that sums that up.

I've never read Hellblazer but I enjoyed the movie.

It was ok, just not very Constantine, main example being he was played by keanu reeves

It was a good film, not great but good. 
 
I liked it, but my only complaint was Keanu Reeves, I understand that the writer originally written so the character was from Liverpool but that didn't garner any attention so he changed it so John was an american so it would garner more attention but honestly, they could have gotten someone better the Keanu, the guy has no emotional range, he acts like a wooden board throughout the entire movie. 
 
That was my only complaint, Keanu Reeves. Everything else was pretty good. I'd give it a 7 out of 10
