Constantine ★★★

100-word review: Hellspeak? It's called Infernal yo! Notwithstanding some excellent casting choices, notably Tilda Swinton as the archangel Gabriel, Peter Stormare as Lu(cifer), and — to a degree — Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weisz as the leading duo, Constatine is a bit of a mess, but then again, that sorta comes with the territory of making a film literally about heaven and hell. The film has some, be it early aughts, visual flair to it, and doesn't take itself too serious, which is its 'saving grace' (pun intended). Don't ask me about the forgettable 'intricacies' of the story in a week's time however.
