Constantine

I know I really shouldn’t be like this, but for some reason I can’t seem to help myelf… I confess that I can’t remember a film featuring Keanu Reeves that I didn’t enjoy. His acting style never really changes, he rarely emotes much more than stoicism, but for some reason he always gets away with it, even when he was Ortiz the Dog Boy, an uncredited and unrecognisable role in Alex Winter’s (better known as Bill Preston from the Bill & Ted films) film Freaked (UK link US link ). Rumour has it Reeves was covered in fur as a joke about his success being based on his pretty-boy looks while Alex Winter’s career didn’t follow the same path… But anyway…

So here’s another big film with Reeves being stoic, very cool, and saving the world. Yes, I know I shouldn’t but I really enjoyed Constantine. Some people just have style, and Reeves is definitely one of them. UK link US link

  1. Damn! This was on on a plane, last week, I had a choice between that and that awful looking Vin Diesel film. I went for Vin Diesel, as I was half asleep and wanted something fairly brainless. What I saw of Constantine (the beginning) looked excellent though.

    What is wrong with your elf?
