I first watched this movie in the theaters when it first came out. I didn’t expect much from it. Keanu Reeves is not known for his acting abilities, but in this supernatural thriller it suits him well. Reeves plays, John Constantine, a private investigator that battles demons and other creatures of the underworld not because he’s a good guy but to buy his way into heaven. Rachel Wiez plays a cop who seeks help from Constantine to explain her sister’s death but ends up finding more than she wanted.
The movie is a combination of The Excorcist and The Mummy. The movie has a lot of action and delves in a bit of the dark side of Catholicism. I’m not religious but the stories behind the movies are very interesting.
