With the ability to identify angels and demons as they exist on Earth, John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) is tormented and set apart from other people. He is self-destructive and angry, yet he does the right thing in protecting the citizens of Los Angeles from the dark forces that surround them. When he teams up with policewoman Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) to solve the mysterious suicide of her twin sister, the two become inextricably involved and seek to find their own peace at whatever cost. CONTSTANTINE is a murky, gothic adaptation of the DC Comics/Vertigo Hellblazer graphic novels, somewhat reminiscent of Reeves' THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE. Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V FOR VENDETTA tells of a fearful and fascist society in which individuality and free thought has been outlawed--punishable by torture. Hope comes in the form of masked vigilante, known only as 'V', who stalks the shadows, seeking out the evil power-mongers who made him the lonely freak he is. This mysterious knife-wielding figure has lightning reflexes, lots of explosives, and intentions to blow up Parliament. Natalie Portman plays the innocent waif who saves him and winds up hiding out in his nifty secret lair, which is filled with forbidden books, art, and a jukebox that plays Cat Power and Julie London's 'Cry Me a River'. Director James McTiegue keeps all these events unfolding at a hypnotically rhythmic pace, like the burning of a long, unstoppable fuse. Adapted from Alan Moore's graphic novel and written for the screen and produced by the Wachowski Brothers (THE MATRIX).
Great price :)
