Big fan of the original, so I really enjoyed this cut, adding all the Michelle Monaghan deleted scenes was a very smart move. Also liked the Evanescence tracks, even if they were a little over the top sometimes. Also love the new beginning in the hospital instead of Mexico.
Very good edit, I recommend it strongly.
Very sound edit of the Constantine movie. Enjoyed the re-addition of the cut scenes and I could argue for or against keeping them in the final cut of the movie. I would say this version may replace my theatrical version. Well worth the time it took to acquire and watch. Thanks Jorge for creating this.
PS. Tried to keep this review brief because I didn't want to create spoilers, but I will say this, if you enjoyed Constantine YOU MUCH WATCH THIS. I was surprised by the scenes that were cut from the original version. Their removal was probably due to two things. 1) There is a scene which is borderline inappropriate for kids, which could have made their MPAA rating something less family friendly. 2) Could see the possibilities where early reviewers/audiences may have panned that additional story line. I personally it helps the movie.
I've been reading the hellblazer comics (though I started with Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run) and while I'm not as long as I should be, with the upcoming Constantine tv show airing this fall, I was keen to see our friend John on the big screen, and boy was I not disappointed. I haven't seen the original movie, but based on the changes listed, I think what Jorge set out to do here he accomplished masterfully. While Keanu may not have been the right choice for Constantine in the first place, this edit made the story be all about John and his journey, and I can tell that our faneditor really cares abut the character but also wished for him to retain as much as possible his comic book origins. Bravo sir, another successful edit that really finds the soul in this movie!
