Constantine
This film IS half bad. The second half. Actually the first half isn’t great either. There are some great comic-book visuals (though come on, the slow-down/speed-up thing is tired for everyone now isn’t it?), and for a short while it didn’t FEEL like a genre film (except for the actual horror content), and it didn’t matter that the character was NOTHING like the comic book version of JC. Then too many things are fumbled, the denoument is badly setup, and the whole thing just draaaaaags on – not least Keanu’s emotion-free speech. They managed to resist the temptation to make it into a VideoGame film though – there was only 1 short scene of blasting the hell out of the undead. So that’s a plus. And so for DC Comics this rates as quite a good adaptation. Still rubbish though.
