    I had no idea that this movie even existed before I went to the theater and actually saw the previews....I think it looks really awsome...I wonder if I could get the book, I don't think it has been translated in French yet. It did sorta feel like the Matrix to me as well because it's another movie with Keanu and huge awesome looking special effects.

    I've seen the comic b4, but never read it so I don't really know the story. I'm still looking forward to seeing this. It looks like it will be pretty cool movie.

    Keanu Reeves... I'm still not seeing it... I guess I'll have to wait for it to be released, eh?

    I didn't know it was a book... just saw the previews.... definetly something I would spend a sh*tload of money to watch in theaters. It seriously looks sooo badass, I really like the over-all darkness of it. I can tell it's gotta be a great movie.
    Doesn't Keanu get all the Jesus parts >_< Isn't he some crazy, religion-defying, moral ravengure in some other movies ? YAY ! GO SACRELIG !
    much love to socketto

    I also am looking forward to this movie. From what I've seen it looks pretty good.
    Dreams come true, but nightmares do too.

    Life isn't a game, it's just a referal to the time you exist on this playground called Earth.

    Well I have to say I'm glad alot of you liked the movie. I certainly enjoyed it. The book, in my opinion was a little better only because it housed more detail as to what was going on than the movie did. Alot of the imagery and character descriptions, especially the way Reeves played Constantine, Weisz played Angela, and so on was how I pictured it in my head.
    The director, whose first job as a movie director was this, did a really good job from transitioning from Music Videos to Movies. I haven't read the Hellblazer comics yet, but I certainly intend to, as well as read the novel "Demons" by John Shirley which also played a role in developing the film.
    I just thought Reeves did a good job, unlike alot of people I think Reeves is a good actor; and Rachel Weisz, stunning... she's beautiful.
    The religious undertones, actually overtones, were a a good mix of storyline enhancement.

    Overall I give this movie a 9 out of 10, only because film time probably had to get cut short for leaving out some details that were in the book that I believe would have played a crucial role for people who haven't read it to understand some of the things that were going on and the connections between John and heaven and hell.
