Am I the only person that realy love this movie...on IMDB it got 6.5/10 and was totally critisised....so i'm thinking (after watching it again)...is there something wrong with my movie-taste ????????
I think it is the best comic adaptation of all..great climat, good acting..great scenes...all is perfect and well balanced..i think that it is one of the best movies of 2005...

Been meaning to see it but I haven't gotten around to it yet. The premise sounds interesting, but that's true of so many films...

After reading Hellblazer for a few years, I was expecting something a little less...what is the word I'm searching for...boring, yes that's it. Yes, it has an interesting premise, but it's one of the dullest genre films I've seen in the past couple of years.

I liked it, but it was nothing more than a popcorn flick.

I loved it...thought it was inventive and fast paced.  Granted I never read the comic (which I heard was a big help if you didn't due to the changes).  Also I'm a sucker for movie with religious themes or conspiracy type stories.  But yes I agree it was one of my favorites of 2005.  Don't know about Constantine 2, it didn't do so well in the theater and I heard it didn't clean  up very well on dvd either.  Only thing I read was that Keanu was in if they decided to do it.

I really liked it too...I'd buy it. It was different and Keanu Reeves' acting was quite better than some of the other films he's been in IMO.

I was underwhelmed by this. The tone was all over the place. A nice idea, but the execution was dull.

I enjoyed it, but thought Night Watch was a better adaptation of Hellblazer, even though it wasn't.

I thought it was pretty good - a great popcorn flick but it did seem to be missing something

It was far better than it had any right to be. I have watched it a number of times and my appreciation for it grows with each subsequent viewing.

It is a great movie!  It was far better than certain other "successful" comic book films (e.g. Spider-man 2)
