Constantine with Keanu Reeves
By Roman Strobl on IV 18, 2005
I went to see the new movie with Keanu Reeves - Constantine. I kind of liked the movie, although it was difficult to perceive Keanu different than Neo from The Matrix. The story is about an exorcist who is fighting his way to heaven by killing daemons. I find interesting the ideas about eternal fight of good and evil and how important it is to keep the balance. Although the movie doesn't go very deep, it reminded me Lord of The Rings where the fight of good and evil is deeply rooted in the story (I rather mean the book, the movie is only surface of what is in the book). And Keanu played well, this time he was very sarcastic and he was charismatic as usual.
Would I recommend you to see the movie? Yes and no. If you like the comix type of stories with heroes and daemons, add some points. If you are a fan of Keanu Reeves, add even more points. For the others it depends, being sci-fi or fantasy positive helps. I would not recommend the movie to people who rather prefer "normal" reality. And to Christians, because in the movie there is a version of Bible with a different ending - guess who wins. That may be quite insulting for some of the religious people.
