-John Constantine is an exorcist who is approached by Det. Angela Dodson who needs help to prove that her twin sister Isabel's death wasn't suicide. The woman was a devout Catholic, and Angela refuses to accept she committed suicide. She came to him because of his reputation in dealing with mystical creatures. In fact, he is on Earth to rid the world of demons and send them back to where they came. He was sent to Hell because he committed suicide when he was younger and was sent back to Earth to exorcise demons, hoping that his good deeds will get him into heaven. As he gets closer to finding the truth, he discovers demons are trying to break into the human world

Did You Know?
-In the original script, Hell was a black void with a floor covered in oil
-In the comic "Hellblazer", on which the movie is based, the character John Constantine was from Liverpool, and is drawn to resemble the singer Sting. In here, the character is from L.A. The reason for the change is the original nationality got no fame and as with Keanu Reeves, they got instant fame

-The look of Hell is based on photographs of old nuclear tests, specifically the sonic shockwave that disintegrates anything in its path, thus the crumbling landscape

-The tattoo on Constantine's arm is an alchemic symbol of the Red King, meant for protection. It's the "fire triangle with 3 radiating arrows below representing 'the Perfect King', 'The Sulphur of the Philosophers'

-The "Holy Hand Grenades" were actually just Christmas ornaments with water in them
-The Nazi flag used to wrap the Spear of Destiny was destroyed after shooting to prevent it from falling into the hands of Neo-Nazis
