Corrected entry: At the end, when Lucifer is shined upon by light from heaven, behind him you can see the lamps being used reflecting on the wet walls.


Correction: The lamps in the background are emergency lights that are all over hospital walls, and are not reflections.

Corrected entry: When the Priest dies in the liquor store, there is an overhead shot of the 4 or 5 police cars that respond to the scene. Two of the cars have the same number on them. (00:51:20)

Correction: There are two cars with the 274 number but one of them has a 19 and the other has a 20 on the trunk.

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, when Angela is shooting the Mexican in the pool, you plainly see that the bullets are exiting out his back through his very white shirt. You see the blood burst forth from his back as they exit, then you see them hit the wall behind him. Yet, just as he grabs Angela and shoves her underwater, you have a perfect view of the back of his now completely unmarred white shirt - no holes whatsoever anywhere.

Correction: He also has no marks at all from being hit head-on by a speeding car. It is likely he instantly heals from any wound.

Corrected entry: As Lucifer comes down to John his feet are covered in a black, tarry substance that drips all over the floor. When he walks into the hydrotherapy room the tops of his feet are still covered in this substance. But in the shot where he pulls Angela away from Gabriel, his feet are clean. (01:43:40)

Correction: A powerful supernatural being can probably change his appearance at will.

Corrected entry: When Lucifer is dragging John away, the floor breaks and there are ripples outlining John. A couple of scenes later, you can see that the floor is not nearly as broken. (01:42:30 - 01:44:30)

Correction: The floor was damaged as Constantine got heavier and heavier as Lucifer was unable to drag a heaven-bound body toward hell. There's no more need for the floor in *our* plane to be damaged than there is for it to be burnt when the planes move toward hell.


Corrected entry: When Lucifer and John are talking, after John cuts his wrists, Lucifer says something about cutting too deep and the tendons being sliced, therefore making the finger movement not so good. Yet later in the scene John is holding the cigarette in his hand freely, as if there was no trouble with his fingers holding it.

Correction: Constantine uses right hand trying to light the cigarette but left when smoking. They may be damaged differently. It's also much easier to hold cigarette between fingers than using lighter.

Corrected entry: When Angela is watching a video of her twin sister's suicide, made by security camera, take a close look at the final scene when Isabel is standing on the edge. She is standing still, but the camera view moves to put the girl in the center of the screen, then stops. It doesn't seem like regular movement of rotating security cameras (they wouldn't stop), and it doesn't look like movement of motion tracking cameras either (they'd be continually moving tracking Isabel). This scene was obviously filmed to provide for a certain artistic impression rather than show accurate security camera footage. (00:25:00)

Correction: Video doesn't stop before she has jumped and is away from the view. Previous editing of the security tape can cause that.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Keanu Reeves is killing the first demon, he lights a cigarette before entering the room, he then proceeds to place it on the desk (where it is seen often for some artistic flare) but when he puts it on the desk its not a cigarette, it is a cigar, or loosely rolled "blunt" which is why it is burning so slowly. (00:04:35)

Correction: This is really not a noticable mistake. It's impossible to see it burning slowly. Indeed it's not a regular cigarette, but it's an enlarged cigarette made for this scene (according to DVD commentaries).

Corrected entry: When Angela sets off to "rescue" Constantine, she makes a point of working the action on her handgun, thus putting a round in the chamber and cocking back the hammer. She then immediately holsters the gun without lowering the hammer. I cringed when I saw this in the movie - it's an extremely reckless move as only the gun's safety (of dubious reliability) is keeping that gun from accidentally firing. I can't imagine even a rookie cop, let alone a seasoned detective, doing something so dangerous. (01:10:05)

Daryn Belden

Correction: I'm thinking that witnessing one's twin sister's suicide/murder, taking a little trip into Hell itself, and having one's immortal soul put in pawn to the war between God and Lucifer might make poor firearm handling practices seem a little less dangerous. I'd call this "mistake" a pretty good barometer of the character's state of mind (and soul) at this point in the movie.

Corrected entry: In the first exorcism scene, John burns the girl with a symbol. A couple of shots later, the burn mark has moved.

Correction: The burn mark never moves. It sticks to the left of her forehead throughout the whole scene.

Corrected entry: When Constantine wants to find out what happened to Angela's sister, he sticks his feet in a pot filled with water. After the scene where he has been in hell and Angela comes in again, he is sitting on the chair but the pot of water has disappeared.

Correction: If you look closely you can see Constantine has kicked the pot to his left.

Corrected entry: When Constantine tries to kill himself by cutting his wrists you see his watch briefly - it's about 6.29. A few minutes later there is a close-up after he has taken it off: it is now 5.20.

Correction: Everytime we see the watch it shows about 5:20. Even the clock on the wall shows 5:20.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Keanu walks into the building of the first exorcism he lit up a cigarette. The next shot shows it was burned down, and then the next shot when he walks into the bedroom its a full cigarette again.

Correction: After the first cigarette burnt down (as he walked into the building), he lit a new one in the kitchen, before walking into the girl's bedroom.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Constantine explains that there's a different Bible in Hell, he says that it gives a different picture of Revelations. The name of the book is Revelation (without the 's'). It's a common mistake, but someone as well-versed in demonology as Constantine should know the correct name.

Correction: This is not a mistake, it is intentional. While OUR Bible only has one Revelation, the one in Hell has several.

Corrected entry: When Keanu Reeves is performing the bathtub trick with Rachel Weisz, he tells her that she has to be completely submerged for it to work. However, her hands are holding on to the sides of the bathtub, out of the water.

Daniel Garner

Correction: He said it works best if she is totally submerged in water. This doesn't mean she has to be. It obviously is a fib he told her so that she would willing to place her entire head under the water. He needed to "kill" her, something she would most likely not have been too pleased with, as her reaction shows.

Corrected entry: Near the end, Gabriel is holding John's gun asking her to kill him. A split second later, he's holding it in a different manner.

Correction: Actually, Gabriel just changes the position of the gun so that Constantine can take it.

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, John Constantine is seen using a piece of glass to slash his left wrist to commit suicide. However after that both his wrists are bleeding.

Correction: He slits both his wrists. The second one is off screen, but the movement can be seen.


Corrected entry: When John and Angela are in the street and he kills the flying demons, you can see her sitting on the ground, vomiting to her left. In the very next shot, she's standing bent over to the right.

Correction: Angela is sitting down in the first scene after he kills the flying demons, yet she isn't throwing up. She could easily make a wobbly stand and throw up like she did.

Corrected entry: When Chas dies, he has a dab of blood on his nose. In the next shot, the blood is running down his right cheek.

Correction: Where is the mistake? In the next shot the blood has welled up enough to drip and roll down his face.
