Underrated Masterpieces: Constantine

Underrated Masterpieces: Constantine

Most people associate Keanu Reeves with The Matrix (the first, not the trilogy) and John Wick, while Constantine (2005) is a quite relatable hero because of how he solves mysteries while living with heavy lung cancer after smoking too much.

It is a creepy, mystic and well-crafted depiction of the DC Comics character of the same name. It also featured Rachel Weisz as twin sisters, Djimon Hounsou, Shia LaBeouf, Tilda Swinton and Peter Stormare.

Constantine is not only a quasi-demon horror mystery film but also served as an ultra-long ad against the use of tobacco. It was also the directoral debut of Francis Lawrence, who later directed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013).

This film will serve as a guide for smoking addicts everywhere thanks to the coherent imagery and the style of the slick acting.
