Constantine City of Demons The Movie: Average stuff
I'm not a Constatine fan truth be told, the big Hollywood blockbuster movie with Keanu Reeves didn't impress me, the television show though on my watchlist doesn't fill me with excitement and all the animations featuring the character such as Justice League Dark (2017) I thought were pretty poor.
So what chance did City of Demons really stand? Not much, but to its credit it made the most of what it has and delivers a passable attempt at a story.
When his friends daughter falls into a mysterious coma it's up to John Constatine to investigate and cue the supernatural, demons and lashings of macabre.
The animation is solid, the voice cast is passable and the plot feels recycled. I know I've seen this before and recently but can't put my finger on quite where. Dark, moody and suitably R-rated it's certainly the best Constatine outing I've seen and have a feeling this may really please fans.
For me however this was an average animated tale with few shocks, surprises or memorable moments.
Some memorable macabre
Distinctly average stuff
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
We need animated horror movies
Bendedict Cucumber is magic
Mr Blobby is a demon, this explains SO much
Hearing Newcastle used in a fantasy movie like this is just weird
There are awkward sex scenes, and then there is that!
