    Man... what a waste of $5. bucks that was. The only good part of that flick was the all too brief appearance of a 60!

    It would have been better if it weren't for Keanu... atleast that is how I felt. Though I thought the story was still ok, despite the sub-par acting in addition to Keanu's cheesey one liners.

    I saw it last week and wasn't impressed either.

    The worst movie I've seen to date was Alexander. It should have been marketed as soft gay porn. That was the first movie I had to cover my eyes at.. My wife and I went with a buddy and his wife who are both rather religious so we ended up leaving half way through. I would have liked my money back after that one. Their definately should have been a warning.

    We gave it a go last night. Pretty decent flick, if you're into that kind of thing..........

    Honestly I couldn't go to sleep afterward. Don't know why, but I just kept seeing naked chicks in my head..............

    Wow, wish I had seen this thread, or remembered it, before today. Watched Constantine last night, the movie sucked. I'm gathering, from the odd camera angles and the lack of a real plot, this movie was the adaptation of a comic book.

    Seriously, Ghostbusters was deeper than this POS.

    Also had to wonder, the Netflix description is pretty lame: John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) is a private investigator who believes in things that go bump in the night -- which makes him somewhat of an eccentric in a world ruled primarily by logic. So, it comes as a surprise to him when a female cop (Rachel Weisz) seeks his counsel after her twin sister dies in what first appears to be a suicide. She wants definitive proof of the cause of death … but the answers may only come with blind faith on her part.

    My wife, who is the one who put this in the Netflix queue, kept telling me the movie was about a private investigator, yet from the start it played like The Exorcist meets The Matrix. :rolleyes:

    Saw the 60, which is why I searched for this thread.

    Yeah but, Rachel Weisz is one of my favorites... So I'll watch it again if it is on cable.

    Constantine blew, but I did like the two-minute-or-so scene with Lucifer. It was an interesting take on it for me.

    I enjoyed it as yet one more opportunity to ingest popped corn. Best snack ever invented.
