Constantine is no saint. Increasingly disillusioned by the world around him and at odds with the one beyond, he?s a hard-living bitter hero who scorns the very idea of heroism. Constantine will fight to save your soul but he doesn?t want your admiration or your thanks and certainly not your sympathy. ”-by Chris Monroe Constantine is dark, edgy, action packed, and funny. He is scary creepy, imaginative, and generally he has a bad attitude. Perfect example of an anti-hero. The wicked sense of humor helps break the tension. ” reviewed by Scott Chitwood Constantine as a chain-smoking?(the scene when the doctor look at his X-rays-never a good sign in a superhero movie); depressed demon hunter. ”- Review by Roger Elbert Constantin seems more inconstant than constant regarding his final destiny.
