Okay, it's very complicated for me to rate or review this movie. This movie has very many flaws. It's not a 'i-want-to-be-loved-by-anyone'- Movie. But I like it and its over-the-top ideas a lot.

If i had to make a Pro-Con-List, the Con Part would be large. The good ideas safes it. A what the hell...here is my Pro-Con-List:

++ Keanu Reeves often fits the tough Guy Attitude (Even if he is not that Jason Statham-Type)
++ Rachel Weisz, Constantines Friends, Tilda Swinton and even LaBeouf are good
++ The Ending + Showdown - This is one of my Favorite Movie Endings. Badas as f**k
-- Too often you think the Director and his Writers were saying: 'Yeah, that's ok. But(!) what if we make it 10 Times bigger ?". They want top at far too often.
-- Script, Story, Plotholes. Way to often they do the same thing to make a "cool looking scene".

Okay the Con list is not that big, but i don't want to spoil anything.

Keanu Reeves is a wonderful actor, and is shining in this fantastic movie.

I wonder if the screenplay writers even read the comic books. Is not just that they had the back story wrong, but they also got John Constantine wrong, cause whoever that guy who smokes a lot was, he was not John Constantine.

BTW, it isn't that hard to cast a British actor to play a British character, not that Keanun Reeves isn't good, he was just not right for the part.
