* AdaptationalDumbass: In the original comics John summons Nergal not to fight Alex Logue, Astra's father; but rather because Astra herself summoned a powerful demon to defend her from her father's constant abuse. He had no other means of even trying to beat the demon at the time and made a desperate mistake. Here, he jumped straight to lord of hell against a half-witted magician just to show off. As Renee puts it, "He could've just called the cops!"*This troper thought was because John was young and arrogant. Asa mentioned him having an even bigger ego than he had now. So it's possible he was blinded by pride instead of being stupid.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationAmalgamation: The film is mostly an adaptation of the graphic novel ''All His Engines'' but it also includes Astra's adbuction from issue #11 of the main run of Hellblazer.


* DoubleStandardRapeSciFi: Possibly. John and Angela [[spoiler:the spirit of Los Angeles]] have sex in the bathroom. The fact that [[spoiler:Angela is possessing an unwilling host]] isn't addressed. On the other hand, the fact that her form changes several times in front of John, and that this is the only form that appears twice, suggests that [[spoiler: this might be her default form, rather than a host.]]

* RoleReprisal: Creator/MattRyan is back playing John Constantine and is the third media adaptation of the character to be played by him.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkIsNotEvil: Asa, who looks like she should be a villain just by her dark colors and [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains the way she dresses]], but might actually be one of the ''most'' good characters in the story.


Added DiffLines:

* MsFanservice: Asa the Nightmare Nurse is a buxom woman in heels with long legs, and alternates between multiple, very sexy nurse-themed outfits.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilVsEvil: Beroul blackmails Constantine into his service to kill five other high ranking demons for him, as they're trying to move in on his new "franchise" in the mortal world.


Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedAmnesia:
** After forcing Renee to tell her the backstory on Constantine, the Nightmare Nurse erases her memory of the conversation to spare her the pain of retelling it.
** [[spoiler:The curse Constantine used to kill Nergal had the price of Renee and Trish's love for their respective husband and father, as well as the friendship between Constantine and Chas. Renee and Trish lose all of their love, and thus their memories, of Chas. And Chas forgets the decades-long friendship he had with John.]]
