Comic Book TV Shows of 2014-2015 – Let’s Compare

Howdy ladies and gents, now as promised a little while ago in Upcoming Stuff For This Blog, I’m finally getting around to talking about those comic book TV shows. This is the first of a few blog posts on this subject matter (if I can write them up soon enough). So as it says in the title of this blog post I’m basically going to look at the comic book TV shows that started September last year up until May this year. I’m annoyed its taken me almost 2 months to get around to doing this post but I finally have some free time. And just to clarify before I begin even though The Walking Dead and iZombie are comic book shows, they won’t be counted unfortunately. Minor spoilers to follow…



Arrow was a show I was reluctant to watch at first because of the hype behind it and the whole dark and gritty approach aesthetic, but I really ended up liking seasons 1 and 2, and so I was super hyped to see what would go down in season 3. So imagine my surprise to find out what a disappointment last season was overall. Now don’t get me wrong, there was a lot to enjoy. I liked the earlier half of the season with the introduction of characters like  Ra’s al Ghul and Ray Palmer, and then there’s some of the progression of the characters from season 2 as well which was interesting. The action was still super slick, nicely shot and well-choreographed, and the crossover material with The Flash was cool. But my problem with Arrow‘s third season is that it loses its focus, it felt like the focus was less on Oliver and more on everyone else, also the stories in this season just weren’t as engaging as they were before, there was also some annoying love stories taking place and the flashbacks which were once an interesting look back into Oliver’s life, just became tedious and far-fetched. Plus there were just some bad decisions made with some of the characters and stories that made this season more of a chore to watch more so than anything else.

As for how it compares to the other shows it is hard to say. While it’s clearly not in the same league as The Flash and Daredevil, you can say that it was better than Constantine and argue it was better than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, but I honestly had more fun with those shows than Arrow but that’s just me.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a show that most people had given up on by the time season 2 started and it only had its loyal fan base to keep the viewership alive. Luckily season 2 corrected a lot of the problems with the first season by moving at a quicker pace, having further development of the established characters, having more action sequences and hand-to-hand fights and utilizing the comics better. The people behind the show did well to use characters and stories from first season and bring them back here, but in addition to that they were able to introduce more new characters and make them fit into the overall dynamic of the show while also changing up the basic formula. There was more drama for Coulson, we got answers for why Skye was so special, we finally found out about Melinda May’s past and got to see more of evil Ward. But the biggest reveal of this season was the introduction of the Inhumans which changed the structure of the show a lot and added the super-powered aspect to the show which it really needed. With all that being said season 2 still had problems with creating engaging stories for people who weren’t familiar with the show, some of the new characters were wasted and because of the swift pace some stories felt rushed.

When it comes to comparison, AoS was better this season, better than Constantine and in my mind more fun to watch than Arrow. And I liked it a little more than Agent Carter too. But it was nowhere near as good as Daredevil or The Flash.

The Flash


Ah The Flash, the show that a lot of people are claiming to be the best comic TV show ever, and for good reason because it’s pretty awesome. I feel like this has been the most consistent, fresh and fun first season of any comic book TV show I’ve seen in these modern times of comic book adaptations. While I’m not too familiar with the Flash source material, that did not stop me from engaging with the show’s characters and stories. What’s so great about this first season is that it is not another dark, gritty and realistic superhero affair like arrow or the Chris Nolan Batman films, it is light-hearted and comedic, it also embraces its super-powered side, is also self-aware, has plenty of fan service for fans and still finds time to be dramatic and emotional when the time comes. Even though this season is an origin story for Barry Allen, there’s a lot of groundwork being made for his friends and enemies, and storylines that will come to pass in season 2. I think my only issues with the show was that the first few episodes were a little slow and had that annoying CW habit of inserting popular music in episodes when it clearly wasn’t needed.

As for how this show compares to the rest would argue that it is the best as it had such a nice balance of action, drama and humour. Daredevil comes in at a close second because of its style, genre and action but lacks the consistency and fun factor that this show has.



Constantine is another one of those shows that most consider a failure, I mean look at all the problems it faced:

  1. It was on NBC
  2. It had a bad time slot
  3. It was barely marketed so no one really knew about it
  4. The show made a lot of sacrifices with the source material which turned a lot of fans off

The show was fighting an uphill battle and add on top of the facts above that it was less adult than the comics, had so-so reviews and very little viewership. It is no wonder that the show got cancelled considering all of those factors. That being said, I thought the show was pretty good and I know that there were a good few people on the internet that were fans of this show too. I think what made this show good was two key factors: 1) It was the only superhero TV show that had a heavy focus on the supernatural/horror side of comic books and 2) It had a great central performance from Matt Ryan, while the rest of the cast were good, but it was Ryan’s performance that made the show worth watching. While it did start out a little slow, I reckon it was around episode 4/5 when things started to get interesting, eventually in the final stretch of episodes things started to get pretty dark, dramatic, suspenseful and pretty creepy.

When you compare Constantine to its other DC counterparts it just did have the same kind of engaging stories, style and heavy focus on action that Arrow and The Flash had. You could argue that it was the weakest of the bunch in this list of shows, that’s not to say that it was terrible, but in my opinion the other shows were a little more show of themselves and had a lot more charisma.

Agent Carter


Now let’s talk about Agent Carter‘s first season. This show is very different from the other mainly due to its length, 8 episodes is a pretty short time span, that being said it allowed this show to tell a concise, interesting and action-packed story. Getting to see more of Peggy Carter’s adventures after Captain America: The First Avenger and seeing what kind of challenges she faces, not only around the workplace, but also emotionally and physically when she was kicking ass. This show did a great job of showing off both Peggy’s vulnerability but also her badassery, and pairing her up with Edwin Jarvis was great as they made for an unlikely but hilarious pair. I liked the ties to the comics and other MCU films, the use of new villains and interesting action they were able to pull off considering the 1940’s setting. I will say that as much as I liked the show, I would have liked more spy-oriented material, some more likeable main characters and a swifter pace for some of the story elements in the first half of the season.

As for how it compares to the other shows, Agent Carter was good and some fans said it was better than Agents of S.H.I.L.E.D. and while this show was a little more consistent, I think it didn’t have as fun characters or as interesting fight scenes. I will say it was better than Constantine and I liked it possibly more than Arrow‘s last season. Still doesn’t have anything on The Flash or Daredevil though.



Daredevil is the only one of these shows I’ve had the chance to see twice, and had I been blogging about the show after my first viewing I would have probably been singing its praises and would have said that it was the best show. However my love for the show has taken a knock since watching it the second time round. That is not to say that show’s bad now, far from it. Daredevil is still one of the most intriguing, different and violent shows I’ve seen in the comic genre and it’s brilliant. What you have to appreciate about this show is the crime drama setting, the great cast of characters, choreography of the action sequences and darker tone within the MCU. The main performances from Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio are great (especially with D’Onofrio who has humanised one of the best Marvel villains and given him a new interpretation with this show). The show isn’t perfect though, it does waste some of its good characters, and some of the stories leading up to the finale aren’t as impressive as what’s come before which does affect the quality of the show which before episode 10 in my opinion is near perfection.

As for how it comes compares to the other shows on this list I would say it’s just behind The Flash as the best of the bunch. The show makes a few missteps and has some inconsistencies that just make it a little less great than it should be.

So that’s my thoughts, thanks for reading. Be sure to comment below and let me know if you think my opinions are correct or not, and if you have your own opinions about the shows above, write them in the comments below and I’ll see ya on the next blog post. Laters! 😀

Month of Superhero Film Reviews 2: Constantine

Howdy people of the north, south, east and west, and welcome to Day #15 of Month of Superhero Film Reviews 2! During this month I’ll be reviewing of some of the best, average and worst comic book adapted films. Now that we’ve reached the halfway point I wanted to review a film that has been on the list for while which is the 2005 film version of Constantine.


This is one of those films I never knew much about upon its initial release, it wasn’t until my late teens that I found out what it was and how it was based on a comic book series. I’ve been meaning to watch this for years but just never had the time or interest to sit down and give it a watch. So with the TV show from last year being cancelled recently it feels like a convenient yet perfect time to talk about this film adaptation from 10 years ago.

The story can be summed up as the following:

“John Constantine is a cynic with the ability to perceive and communicate with half-angels and half-demons in their true form. He seeks salvation from eternal damnation in Hell for a suicide attempt in his youth. Constantine exorcises demons back to Hell in a bid to earn favor with Heaven but has become weary over time. With death looming, he helps a troubled police detective learn the truth about her sister’s death while simultaneously unraveling a much larger and darker plot.”

The story is alright but not very engaging. This kind of supernatural action stuff is right up my ally, I like films or TV shows that deal with life and death, demons and monsters and takes the basic principles of what the bible has taught about angels and devils and is able to create its own mythology. But this film just doesn’t present any of that in a good way, it’s interesting at times, but none of it feels very cool or informative, actually at times I didn’t know what was going on because there was little information given for why certain things were happening. But the main issue I had with this film was that it was boring, yes boring, offensively boring. The worst offense a film can commit is bordem and believe i was feeling it from the beginning. I didn’t care about John or Angela or the big deal with the Spear of Destiny because everything felt so dull, cryptic, monotone and there was no tension or suspense. Maybe it was just a bad day to watch a film, maybe it was because I was pretty tired, but this story did nothing for me.


Now let’s talk about the cast. Keanu Reeves as John Constantine, wow what a bore. I do like Keanu Reeves but he was the wrong man to play Constantine, the character from the comics from what I’ve researched is a bit more douche, lively and charismatic and has a way with words, but Reeves’ version of the character has none of that. Beyond the comparison to the comics, Constantine is a moody guy with no personality, relatable traits or cool one-liners, he has nothing that makes me care about him so when he’s in danger or dying, I don’t care. Rachel Weisz was slighty better as Angela Dodson, though I wasn’t keen on her or what she was doing when looking into the death of her sister, the only thing that kept me watching was Weisz. She’s one of my favourite actresses and she made this character tolerable. Tilda Swinton as Gabriel was interesting, Swinton was good and she was probably the most redeeming aspect of this film. Shia LaBeouf is alright but severely underused as Chas Kramer, Pruitt Taylor Vince as Father Hennessy was decent but his character made me laugh more than anything else (definitely unintentionally) and Djimon Hounsou was interesting as Papa Midnite, but I would have liked to have seen more of him to get a sense of his abilities. Peter Stormare as Lucifer was decent but over the top and cartoonish, and he made me feel uncomfortable.


Now let’s talk about the presentation. Visually the film is nice with its action scenes and the visual effects used for the monsters and depiction of hell is cool, however the colour palette of this film feel very orange/sepia and washed out and I would have liked a more varied colour palatte and unique art direction given to creatures. As for the soundtrack by Klaus Badelt and Brian Tyler, it was good but nothing memorable.

And lastly how does it compare to the comics? Well I’ve never read any of the source material so I can’t comment on it personally, but from what I’ve heard from fans of the source material it wasn’t very faithful at all, I guess that’s why we got the TV show that did much better despite getting cancelled.


So to conclude Constantine is a film that just didn’t do anything for me. I know some that don’t think it was too bad and some that actually enjoy it, but for me the story felt long-winded and didn’t make much sense at all, the characters were semi decent and the action while good was nothing mind-blowing. I know I won’t be watching this again any time soon.

Rating: 5/10

That’s 15 reviews done, only 15 more to go. So have you seen Constantine and if so what are your thoughts on it? Drop me a comment and let me know your thoughts yo! Come back tomorrow and I’ll have a new film review online, until then peace out!

Constantine Has Officially Been Cancelled, WEAK!

Howdy people of the internet and welcome to another blog post. Today is a sad day as it has been confirmed for sure that NBC’s Constantine show has been canned and I’m gutted. I know I made a post a little while ago about who could pick up the show if NBC never renewed it, but unfortunately NBC gave up and no one else took interest and the show’s officially dead. I know it’s not a big deal for a lot of people, but for I’m truly saddened by this result.

Constantine-TV-Series-PosterThe show’s frigging cancelled? Bullshit yo, there was so much potential.

So here’s the official story I read on ComicBookMovie:

“Constantine never really had a chance. Between a noticeable lack of promotion and an awful time slot, it quickly became clear that it wasn’t going to be a hit for NBC or Warner Bros. When the former decided not to move ahead with a second season, there was talk of it ending up elsewhere (Arrow‘s Stephen Amell even offered to guest star), but The CW decided against it, and so did everyone else by the sound of it. Executive producer Daniel Cerone weighs in on the death of the series below, but here’s hoping we’ll see Matt Ryan reprise the role elsewhere, eh? We’ll see…”

I promised I’d share news when I had it — sadly, that news is not good. The cast and writers of Constantine are being released from their contracts. The studio tried to find a new home for the show, for which we’re forever grateful, but those efforts didn’t pan out. I’m sorry, I wasn’t provided any information on the attempts to sell the show elsewhere. All I can report is that the show is over.
Many ingredients went into this TV series. From the dedicated cast that breathed these characters to life, led by Matt Ryan as the comic-made-flesh embodiment of John Constantine, to the exceptionality talented crew that put unreal images on screen, to the original Hellblazer writers and artists who gifted us a universe.
As a general principle, writers don’t choose a writing career to achieve stardom. Whatever demons or insecurities drove them to find freedom of expression through written words generally keeps writers comfortably obscure behind their words. Nor do people choose writing as a means to financial freedom. I’d venture to guess that most who set out to write professionally never receive a paycheck for their hopeful scribbles or key strokes.
In fact, nobody I know ever chose a writing career — it chose them. You write because that’s what you do. Like breathing, it just happens and you have to do it and you just hope that someday somebody out there notices what you’re trying to say.
If that’s the dream of writers, than the writers of Constantine lived the dream, because we’re leaving behind wild and passionate fans who believe in and were moved by what we tried to do. To leave such a significant, dedicated and active fan base on the table — that’s the real sadness. You all deserve many years of the series we set out to make, and we’re disappointed that we couldn’t deliver that to you. The good news is that Constantine will live on for years in many more forms. But our time as caretakers has ended.
Thank you for letting us in.
Daniel Cerone

ConstantineI’ll miss this cast. especially Matt Ryan, he was awesome.

All I can say is that I appreciate Mr. Cerone thoughts on the show’s demise, it sounded like a heartfelt response and it seemed like he was heavily invested in this show just as much as the cast were. Unfortunately it looks like the TV gods did not look too kindly upon this show in the end. I know the show wasn’t in the best of places from the beginning with the terrible time slot, poor-ass promotion and less than stellar early episode reviews. But I gave the show a good rating in my overview of the show in November (I think I was around 3 or 4 episodes in) and in my opinion the show got a lot better, especially in the final 3 episodes. There was a lot of potential for a second season, but unfortunately NBC suck and don’t like to hang on to good or at least decent shows. I had hoped another network would pick it up like Sy-Fy, but nope (thought I’m glad it didn’t get touched by CW, that would have watered the show down SO much). It really sucks that Netflix and Amazon didn’t pick it up either, those 2 places were my main hopes. Could you imagine the kind of awesome madness and adult treatment the show could have gotten on Netflix (especially considering how well Marvel’s Daredevil turned out)? I guess that’s just a dream now.

Constantine-Grave-Matt-RyanRIP Constantine, you’ll be missed. 😦

In the end Constantine‘s cancellation probably won’t affect a lot of people and a good few fans didn’t like the way handled the source material, but this show did have its fans, it did get better and there was a lot potential for future seasons. But it is dead now and I will be disappointed for a good few days. So lame.

Constantine’s Nearly Over, Who Should Pick It Up For Future Seasons?

Howdy ladies and gents, welcome to today’s blog post. So the first season of Constantine is almost over with this coming Friday being the final episode in the set of 13 and it has been a rough time for this show it terms of ratings and finding its footing, that being said, the show’s definitely found its footing and has become a fairly entertaining show (I’ve liked it from fairly early on). However with the show currently not picked up for a second season, the future is not clear for Constantine. So in this blog post today I’m just going to suggest possibilities for the where the show could be renewed and what it could do draw in more audiences.


NBC Renews The Show


So this would be the most logical choice. The show started out on this network and it would be great for the higher-ups in the company gave this show another chance. To be fair it is partly NBC’s fault that Constantine‘s in the position that it is. The show doesn’t get the same kind of promotion that other shows like Grimm does and you feel since it is a DC comic book property they may try to highlight that since we’re in the superhero/comic book era of film and TV. All NBC need to do is bring attention to this show to the forefront and advertise the hell out of it, plus give it a better time slot.

Move It To HBO


This is a bit of a long shot, probably impossible actually, but if HBO were to pick up Constantine it could turn into the show that some fans have wanted from the beginning. Some have complained that the current TV adaptation is too tame and avoids the more adult, dark and violent elements which make the comics so much better and most of that is down to NBC being more of a family friendly network. If this show moved to HBO it would be on the same level as Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones or The Wire, those shows don’t hold back, there’s profanity, violence sex, nudity and high production values, and those key aspects would do wonders for Constantine.

Netflix Pick It Up


This is a little more feasible. Netflix has been going to strength to strength and it is pretty much the most used streamed service for films and TV shows, plus it has it has renewed a few TV shows and is home to successful original shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. It has even gotten four lesser known Marvel properties (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) off of the ground. And since Netflix is free of the boundaries of network TV, it can be edgier and doesn’t have to be restricted to time slots. The only complication I see is that since Marvel are collaborating with Netflix to produce their new comic book shows, it would seem either rude or questionable for both Marvel and DC shows to occupy the same space (maybe, I’m not sure, I’m just speculating).

Possibly Picked Up By Amazon Studios or Yahoo! Screen

4368956351280x720jpg-56e5da_1280w yahoo-studiosThese two choices are less likely than the ones suggested above, that being said they are options that should be considered. Amazon is good because like Netflix they have been delivering their own original series’ in recent times and they’ve been successful with more of them on the horizon. Clearly Amazon must be doing something right. And since Amazon Instant Video stream Constantine already I feel like it would be a nice fit. I’m not sure how many people would see it if it were exclusive to Amazon, but at least the show would still be going. And then there’s Yahoo. The only reason I’ve brought them into the argument is because they were able to save Community and allow it be renewed for a sixth season so I have to believe that they could probably do the same for Constantine. The only problem is, Yahoo compared to everyone else is pretty small as a streaming service (to my knowledge) and I’m not too sure many people would see it.

Well that’s my thoughts on Constantine and where it could go for its renewal. What do you think of these suggestions and how do you think the show should proceed to be renewed? Please comment below and let me know. Laters. 🙂

Constantine to Stop at 13 Episodes, Though Season 2 Is Still Possible

Good day to you ladies and gents, time for some news from the world of television and the show I’ll be talking about is Constantine. Now this show has only had been airing for a little while, but there is already talk of its future not being completely set in stone, and that troubles me. The following information comes from IGN:


Like most new series, Constantine received an initial order for 13 episodes, with the hopes of getting the “back nine” order that would bring it to a full 22-episode season. That isn’t going to happen, as Deadline is reporting NBC has decided to not order any more episodes of the show for this season. However, unlike most new shows who fail to get a back nine order and are essentially being simultaneously cancelled — including NBC’s own Bad Judge and A to Z just recently — the final fate of Constantine has not been decided.

The main difference is that Constantine debuted a few weeks later than most fall series, in late October, so the network only has five episodes of ratings to look at, even as the show is nearing completion of production on its first thirteen episodes – meaning a decision on the back nine had to be made now. Constantine has certainly had its struggles since it debuted, unable to bring in the same number of viewers at its successful NBC lead-in on Friday nights, Grimm. But the latest episode did have an encouraging +38% uptick in the ratings.

Showrunner Daniel Cerone tweeted the following, after the news broke.

 C-1 C-2C-3

Deadline also notes NBC has continued to promote Constantine, including using their sister channel Syfy to air a four-episode catch up marathon this week and scheduling the cast to appear at this week’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade broadcast. Ultimately, it seems Constantine’s future will be decided by how the remaining eight episodes do, with the final decision likely held until May.

With three more scheduled for this year, there will still be five Constantine episodes left to air in early 2015, but the question then will be what NBC schedules in its timeslot on Fridays after those episodes finish up.

Well this is troublesome, Constantine is a good show, I would go as far as to say it is a great show. I did a post on how much I liked the show and now the show’s future is in jeopardy, and that sucks. First Community, then Hannibal and now this show. This is terrible news. While it would be good to have a full 22 episode season so we could explore more stories and characters from the comics, at the same time, 13 episodes means that there would be a more concise and focused overall story. Now I here are some of the reasons why this show hasn’t been doing so well:

  1. It is on the wrong TV station: People have stated that if this show were on another TV show then it would potentially get treated better and get more exposure.
  2. The promotion and advertising given is pants: Unless you’ve been an avid fan of the source material, you probably wouldn’t have been aware that this sho had even begun. I’ve heard from a lot of people that they’ve caught this show a lot later after its initial airdate, I am one of them too, not watching until around episode 3. Point is, there has been no proper marketing for this show, NBC haven’t been pushing this show like Grimm and its like they are not giving the show the attention that it deserves to grow.
  3. The show’s too PC and needs be more hardcore: I’ve heard from some fans that this show is light on certain details that make John Constantine who he is as well as some other things. Some people have argued that this show isn’t meant to be mainstream and is more along the lines of cable TV and that this show would be better treated on HBO or AMC because there would be less limitations about what the filmmakers could show in terms of the violence and adult features.

So now, we at least have 13 episodes. However the show doesn’t have a definite confirmed second season and that troubles me, I don’t want to get into this show only for it to never come back. That’s happened too much in the last year, please God, not again with this show. I can only hope that the ratings improve and that the critical response saves this show from death, either that or the show gets picked up by another TV network. Either way, this show has to go on and it CAN NOT end after the first season. That just CAN’T happen. I like it too much for it to fall. So I will spread the work and if you’re a fan you should too, keep this show alive and let’s make sure it lasts at least 2 or 3 more seasons.

My Quick Thoughts Constantine So Far

Good day to you ladies and gentlemen, today I continue my look at currently airing TV shows with Constantine. Now unlike my look at Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gotham and The Flash, this will be more of an overview, but I will still try to review things as much as possible. So how does this show fair? Read on and find out.


Now I’ve never really been that familiar with the character of Constantine, I never saw the 2005 film adaptation with Keanu Reeves, but apparently I didn’t miss much with that and most fans said that it was not a faithful adaptation of the source material. I’ve been meaning to read the comics because my uncle keeps telling me that they are awesome, but I’ve never gotten around to it because of, well, life haha. But when I heard that there was a TV series on the horizon I was curious to see if a TV adaptation would do the comics justice. When the series premiered I read mixed things online, but it was primarily good, and since I’ve taken on more TV to watch in recent times, I decided to give it a watch and I’m glad I did because I REALLY like this show. The reason I like the show so much is because it is so different from other comic book shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gotham, The Flash and Arrow. This show that deals with the angels and demons, magic and all things supernatural. I love those elements because it is beyond human comprehension and cannot be explained with science or rational thinking, it is otherworldly, dangerous and corrupt. The story from the beginning is pretty interesting and kept me wanting to know more and with each new episode, it got me curious to know more. In addition to that, one of the other things I loved about the show was the tone and atmosphere, the use of strong language, violence and horror-esque elements that make it feel very dark and mature, more so than most shows in this genre. The presentation is very good with great special effects and good lighting and the soundtrack by Bear McNeary is also good too.


And to finish there’s the cast who are pretty good so far. Matt Ryan is nice as John Constantine, as the main character he’s interesting because he’s unconventional, reluctant and funny in a dark kind of way, but he also has emotions and a moral compass that makes him relatable. Ryan is cool and charismatic in the role and reminds me of some of my friends because of the English accent and certain lines of dialogue. Angélica Celaya is pretty and compelling as Zed Martin, her powers as an artist with psychic powers makes her very interesting and her interactions with Constantine is also entertaining. Charles Halford is also cool as Chas Chandler and Harold Perrineau as Manny is awesome because he’s suave, confident and has good dialogue. Also Michael James Shaw is badass as Papa Midnite. So are there any cons to the show? Well a few, the pilot left me a bit confused and there was a lot of backstory relating to the main character which was left out, plus some of the story moments are bit cliché and the pacing can be a bit slow but otherwise its fine.

Constantine - Season Pilot

In conclusion Constantine is a great piece of TV and well worth your time. The strange and disturbing stories, coupled with the dark, eerie and horror-like atmosphere makes for some really cool and intriguing episodes. Matt Ryan is a compelling presence as the main character and since the show is just so mature and unlike other comic book shows I’ve seen before, it keeps me wanting to see more.

So have you seen Constantine and if you have then what do you think? Whatever your thoughts are be sure to leave them in comments below and I’ll see you on the next review .:D
