 "John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) is a sort of supernatural judge, jury and executioner. He’s a former suicide who, after a brief stint in Hell, was sent back to earth to keep an eye on the demons and angels who live among us, making sure that they don’t exert too strong an influence on human destiny." On behalf of my fellow geeks, I'd like to point out that this whole sordid character description was invented wholesale for the movie. Why oh why doesn't Hollywood buy properties it would actually like to adapt, rather than radically change for no reason?

 i completely agree about Peter Stormare. He was the only actor in the entire movie that made me sit up and pay attention. It was alright for laughs.

 Just as a sidenote, The character of John Constantine was created by Alan Moore.

 See that bottle in the picture? It's Ardbeg, one of the smokiest scotches, har har har.

 I would just like to point out, so that we can all be on the same page, that GAVIN-FUCKING-ROSSDALE is in this movie. Even the lead singer from Bush out-acts poor Keanu.
