Warner Brothers Home Entertainment releases this single-disc issue of Vertigo Comics' crass character John Constantine's big-screen debut. Containing the original widescreen presentation of the film, the disc comes with a stunning 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer along with Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks in both English and French. The picture quality is befitting to the unique look of the picture, which only looks better and better as time goes on. The disc not only shines with its fine presentation, but with its inclusion of 18 minutes of deleted scenes that feature an alternate ending and a cut storyline featuring Constantine and Michelle Monaghan as a demon seductress. Director Francis Lawrence provides optional commentary for the scenes, as well as a feature-length track along with producer Akiva Goldsman and screenwriters Kevin Brodbin and Frank Cappello that provides the viewer with insight on the filmmaking process of this adaptation. Add in the theatrical trailer, and you have a solid release that delivers just enough from the incredible 2 Disc Deluxe Edition to make it a worthwhile single disc investment for those low in the pocketbooks or not interested in substantial bonus features. This film is also available in the less-recommended single-disc full-screen version.
18 minutes of additional scenes, including an alternate ending
Great take on the Hellblazer comic. I wish they would have involved the church more or written it in more realistically. Huge potential on the development of the storyline. I personally think Keanu did a great job as his version of Constantine. I loved the fact that even when he was dying he flipped off the devil.
Great movie to watch and discuss your take on how Earth is the battle ground for angels and demons (good vs. evil) etc.
Occult horror. The film is done in a DC Comics style with colourful demonic characters and impressive scenes of hell in red. The character of Lucifer could have been developed further though. The plot follows John Constantine, a vigilante who exorcises and kills demons and who becomes involved with the mysterious suicide of a twin.
I’ve been watching it since I was like 8 and I’m 19 now and not a day goes by that I don’t love this movie! And for us to only have a ps4 to watch movies on we can only really get blue rays because they don’t mess up the system. Which trying to find this movie just in general for more than a year was annoying and finally going to Best Buy when I was about to give up and it being there was great! And it was reasonably priced!
Well done on the supernatural action. Keanu Reeves is very underrated, but a favorite of mine. And Tilda Swinton is, as always, capable of playing any role. She's brilliant. This is one of my favorite films and I'm glad I've added a blu-ray to my collection.
