Constantine 2

Recommended Posts

Yeah, Keanu's an actual actor so that gives him the edge over old man Sting.

 

We've spoken more than enough about Angel Heart before but now that Mickey Rourke's star is back on the rise maybe....

...ok, probably not.

If only I'd seen that in time I could have given it a "Don't talk to me.." balloon and won a copy of Pandemonium...

I only mused about Sting since he's the archetype for the main character. I honestly don't recall his acting other than that awful turn as Feyd in DUNE (thank you Bilirubin for that excruciating memory ).

Marc Warren. Looks dodgy as fuck, but charming. Good at being dark, can act and is blonde. Would lookd good in a trench coat and knows how to smoke.

 

Hmm... that's interesting, didn't intend to post that as a thumbnail...

Yep.

 

Can't see him as Constantine at all, but I've not seen a lot of his work, and I've been wrong before.

Didn't he do an episode of Doctor Who (where he fucked a paving stone) ?

That one's definitely in the eye of the beholder...

 

Not a bad choice, though. His turn in 'State of Play' is reminiscent of the young, flash Constantine, and he does good charismatic bastardy in 'The Principles of Lust'.

'Twas a good episode aside from a seriously weak final 5-10 minutes or so. Warren was good in it, although not obviously Constantine-y. I've heard very good things about him in State of Play, which I really need to get around to watching sooner rather than later.

Pretty much sums up my view on him, everything about him kind of screams harmless funny guy but then again he's an actor so presumably he has what they call range.

There's no way I can get excited about the idea of another movie.

 

Are we all just setting ourselves up for another horrendous dissapointment?

 

And even if the new movie gets a few things 'right' most of us will find a plethora of things to bitch about.

Quite possibly, although it seems you're not, since you don't expect it to be any good.

Some of us, anyway. :hattip:

I've seen nothing to suggest that there's actually a second movie in development so this is just a way to pass some time really!

 

Despite the end result, it was pretty exciting watching Hellblazer make its way to the big-screen, one or two posters (ok, probably just Balthazar) wouldn't be here if it weren't for the flick - just watching the Constantine/Keanu fanbase interact was a lot of fun. Warner's offering to fly me to LA was nice, as was the big bag of swag they gave me to give away as prizes on the site (RIP, site *sniffles*).

Childish it may have been, but memories of the New Zealand Tribute still bring a tear to my eye.

Bastard.

 

I've always thought that American fellow with the shit English accent from some shitty genre show would be great as ol' Con-Job but this could be because I have no idea how British people speak and only watch nerd-porn.
