Constantine, the movie

Recommended Posts

I read Hellblazer and I don't think it is a good movie oppurtunity. Most movies made by Hollywood about comic book characters suck.

 

John Constantine isn't even a super hero, he's a magician with a dark past and some very good connections. Making him an American? Why even call the character Constantine?

 

The best Hellblazer stuff was written 10 years ago by Garth Ennis (the story arc "Forty" comes to mind... great stuff) and none of it translates well into a screen play. It's way to 'heady' and deals with 'magic' instead of super powers.

 

Holy cat-gut Batman! Is that the world's smallest violin?

 

Cheers,

CE

As someone who has all of the Hellblazer comics as well as the Swamp Thing issues where JC made his debut, I can assure you that I am still so cranky about the casting of Keanu, that my cardiac specialist has declared that movie "Verboten" for me!

If they were going to go American, why not Dennis Leary? This movie will suck more than the Matrix movies. This movie will make me embarrassed to tell anyone I collect Hellblazer comics. This is the worst idea since...since...Troy or Alexander. I want to kick the casting director square, Cartman ro-sham-bo-style!

If they really wanna see Ranz-Daddy blow a gasket, why not cast Pee-Wee Herman as the Preacher in "Pee-Wee: Gone to Texas"??!?!?!!?

 

Damn! It's gonna have to be "Liquid Lunch" today thanks to you guys for bringing this up! :angry:

This is worse than Hugo Weaving aka Agent Smith as Elrond. At least they slathered elvish makeup on Agent Smith...Enough to make me think he looked pretty good as a noble half-elf. Keanu Reeves as Constantine dresses the same as Neo. *groans*

 

I saw Percilla, Queen of the Desert first, so all I could think about in either series was hugo in a pink cocktail dress......

Why not Pee-Wee? James Marsden is bad enough already!
