I’m afraid that this time I’m going to have to disagree with Mediawatch Watch and side with the Christians. Just like them, even without seeing it, I know that Constantine is blasphemy of the highest order as just about everyone who’s ever read a copy of Hellblazer knew when they heard it would start the human form of MDF, Keanu Reeves. Yes, he’s not even good enough to be wooden.
So, I’m forming Concerned Readers Against Crap Comics Adaptations - yes, I know the preferred I’m-far-too-mature-to-read-comics name is graphic novels, but that doesn’t give such a good acronym. We’ll be protesting outside cinemas who show this offence against taste, deceny, and legendary characters and urging people to avoid Constantine and find redemption at their local comics shop instead.
