Keanu Reeves : King of Gloom in "Constantine"

Posted by Fara Kearnes on February 18, 2005 3:55 PM |

Gloomy Dude Keanu Reeves looks like he has switched sides and is now the playing type of roles you saw in the creepy and relentless Agent Smith from the "Matrix." Now he plays "Constantine," a character from the comic book series created in 80s ("Hellblazer"series). But this is no superhero such as the likes of Ben-nifer in "Daredevil." Oh now, Keanu is a new hard-living, demon-fightin' antihero who totes a "Holy Shotgun" (a large ornate silver pistol) in the new film "Constantine."

In the comic book, John Constantine is a British con artist or thief or something, and has a close physical resemblance to Feyd from "Dune" (or Sting who played him in that film), and oh yes,Constantine is a drunk, and an cynic, and treats woman like s**t. In other words, the perfect antihero to fight the devil and his army.

From Constantine

So, while Keanu doesn't look like Sting or the comic book character, that's not a problem since he's the King of Gloom, right? It's a title he sometimes shares with Johnny Depp, but Keanu has "The Matrix," "The Devil's Advocate," and "The Watcher" in his filmography.

, This movie tosses out Constantine's British accent and blond hair, but not the dark, gloomy world - or "home" to the K. Now John Constantine's soul is lost since he's already been committed to hell since he's been told he'll die prematurely (from smoking!). Actually, he committed suicide and was tossed back from the other side. So, he lives between the here and there, he can see half-breed angels and demons but he battles them at the same time he rails at God. He's a dude with an attitude -- but still a righteous dude (without the righteousness part) who wants to buy his way back into heaven. OR something like that.

The cynical dark dude teams with a skeptical policewoman Angela Dodson (played by Rachel Weisz) who want to solve the mysterying surrounding the suicide death of her twin sister (also Weisz). Their investigation takes them to the underworld of demons and angels (conveniently,it's like, RIGHT UNDER Los Angeles where it belongs), where things go from bad to worse, which means a joy ride to hell. A subplot in the movie is a young boy named the Scavenger, who finds "the Spear of Destiny" which possesses him and sends him on a mission that will eventually collide with Constantine's. Then Satan appears in the final ten minutes and things really get interesting.

Here's a trailer at the website. Opens today (Feb 18).
