The Late Show!

(2005) dir Francis Lawrence w/Tilda Swinton, Keanu Reeves, Rachel Weisz, Shia LaBeouf [121 min; 35mm]
A paranormal fixer (Reeves) teams up with a police detective (Weisz) to try and stop Hell from invading Earth. Though the overall adaptation was disappointing to fans of the original comic books (your humble programmer included), it can’t be denied that Swinton’s performance as the half-angel Gabriel is a shining light and that the film itself is ripe for reassessment.

“Any movie that casts Tilda Swinton as the angel Gabriel has its heart in the right place and a serious screw loose — two things worth wishing for any time you lay your eight bucks down.” – Steve Schneider, Orlando Weekly

“Halfway through Constantine, a fully clad Keanu Reeves steps into a shallow pail of water, sits on a chair next to it and holds a cat in his lap.” – Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

“A very satisfying film.” – Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
