I have to side with windswept and say Constantine was an enjoyable film. Not a great film by any means. Just a fluffy, fun, popcorn genre film. Peter Stormare played the best Satan I've seen in a while. Maybe since Viggo Mortensen played the debbil in The Prophecy. I also thought Tilda Swinton rocked as Gabriel but not as much as Christopher Walken's Gabriel. I'm trying to figure out where I've heard the accent Keanu used in this film before. If you see this film, stay through the end credits. If you saw the film and left before the credits were over then serves you right for not showing respect for all the people that go into making a movie. You missed a cool last scene.

CRAP! My husband hated it so we left during the credits. Tell, pleeeeeeeease?
The last scene opens with Constantine walking up to his driver, Chaz Chandler's, grave. Constantine puts his fancy lighter on top of the tomb stone and says something like, "You did good." He turns and starts to walk away. The camera switches to a shot of angel wings spreading wide. Then a shot of Chaz Chandler's face as he looks up at the sky, red eyes glowing and a satisfied smile on his face. With one sweep of his wings, angel Chaz rockets off to heaven above while Constantine watches, bemused.
ohhh, now Bill and I HAVE to go see it.

we've been trying to decide if we wanted o spend the $17 to go or not.

I enjoyed Constantine.

I thought it was lost of fun, and I did like, as you did, Gabriel...

In which movie did Walken play Gabriel? I do like him.

I may go back this afternoon--there isn't much out yet, and I didn't wait till the end of the credits!
Christopher Walken played Gabriel in The Prophecy, a very entertaining film directed by Gregory Widen. Worth a rental.
I'll add it to my Netflix list. Thanks!

I know people think Keanu can't act, but I disagree. I think he is an introvert, and that is filtered through his characters.

I thought he was just right for this part.
I also believe Keanu can act when directed properly, and placed in the right venue. The purists for the graphic novel on which Constantine is based disagree most vociferously, however.

An aside on The Prophecy; the sequels, as is typical, are not worth renting despite both also having Christopher Walken in them.
Peter Stormare may rule my heart right after Jean Marais, but there is no way I am going to see Constantine!!!

Keanu should DIE
Come now, you know you want Keanu's bawdy little washboard stomach pressed tightly against you as you spoon lazily, buried beneath a thick warm comforter and freshly washed white cotton sheets, Keanu lustily breathing the words, "I know kung fu" into your ear.
