Keanu Goes to Hell
Do you like legions of bugs, excessive gun fire and the sight of Rachel Weisz in a wet, white T-shirt? Then you'll love "Constantine," Keanu Reeves's fire-and-brimstone-laden film based on the comic.
I saw a preview screening last night at the Cineplex Odeon Wisconsin Avenue. For the first hour, the over-the-top special effects sequences carried me through. And Gavin Rossdale does look good in a pin-striped suit. But the whole thing grew tiresome pretty quickly. If I've seen a hundred CGI demons, I've seen 'em all. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can say the same for the young children (I'm talking 4-year-olds here) who got dragged to the screening and had no business being there. I sure hope their parents know a heck of a lot of lullabyes because they'll be up all night singing them for at least the next month.
Those of you who like loud action flicks with a spiritual, sci-fi undertone may enjoy this one. As for me, I liked the Keanu-in-Hell plotline much better when he and Bill were on a "Bogus Journey." -- Jen
