Things I Like: Constantine: City of Demons (2018 Film)

Constantine: City of Demons is one of the later entries to the DC Animated Universe they started with the Flashpoint movie. John Constantine is definitely not as famous as Batman or Superman, but Keanu Reeves did famously play him in the mid-2000s. Though when I was watching that movie, I had no idea it was connected to DC Comics.

Turns out it’s a demon behind the the scenes, pulling the strings. And it was ironically John Constantine who brought him to Earth many years ago and he’s regretted it ever since. Can he defeat this hellish foe?

To be perfectly honest, Constantine: City of Demons is an okay film. It’s surprisingly gory, while the DC animated movies haven’t been free of blood, but this one’s on a whole different level. I couldn’t even remotely watch this with the kids around, without inducing nightmares and therapy. The cartoon movie could have been better, but DC has done a lot worse.
