Constantine[Wiki] is a movie that normally would get no mention from me. The premise could be cool, but in the end any radio ad for a movie which contains the line "...featuring the new hit single by..." is instant disqualification. So it's surprising then that it doesn't suck that badly. In fact, even people who make hilarious fun of it like it overall:

Isn't Constantine supposed to look like he's been brutally beaten around by life?

Yeah, I guess.

But Keanu Reeves looks like he's been lightly slapped by life's colic-ridden toddler!

Or, you know, sexually assaulted by life's horny, drunken sister. Which, you know ... understandable.

I'll bet Balthazar's really spooky.

Oh, yeah, Gavin Rossdale's just a big pile of scary. You know, if you consider a look that says, "They're coming to get you, Gwen Stefani," as an actual threat.

Yeah, it didn't suck. Reasonably internally consistent and tense enough to make the girl grab tight, with cool visuals. You know, the basics.
