Constantine ★★★★

Having recently watched the latest in the tales of Nemo (Keanu Reeves) in a film called John Wick, I thought I'd watch some of the earlier installments.

Young Nemo started out as a hacker in Matrix before moving on to develop his skills in A Scanner Darkly. John Wick saw an aging Nemo struggling with his religion and seeking vengeance on the murderers of his dog. In Constantine we see middle aged Nemo, who has a smoking and drinking problem, trying to seek solace with his local church group.

It's very entertaining fare and led to a series of spin offs including "Nemo and Ted: Dude something" and a baffling and trippy cartoon.
