3.5 4.0 from 2 reviews

Freelance exorcist and all-around surly loner John Constantine (Reeves) stalks the divide between good and evil, playing the forces of Heaven and Hell against themselves, all for his own benefit. When a policewoman, Angela (Weisz), seeks out the chain-smoking ghostbuster to help solve her twin sister's mysterious suicide, Constantine acts as her guide into LA's supernatural underworld, revealing a plot involving the Spear of Destiny, rogue angels, and a scheme to unleash Hell on earth. Director Lawrence creates a nifty neo-noir atmosphere, but confusing exposition and an over-reliance on CGI scares hurts the final product. Based on DC's "Hellblazer" comic.
