    Don't go - unless you're willing to re-evaluate the most stable images in your life. I sat down in a small, dark theater with the expectation that the movie would be informative; but I found much more than that.. the willingness to question, to change, to rethink stability. The journey Carroll takes as the film unfolds leads the audience to the questions we MUST ask ourselves in order to understand the power associated with religion in the wrong hands... I stood up, shaken, and quietly left the Greenwich Village Theater once the movie had ended, spending the next few hours in silence as I considered the toll this experience had taken on my perspective. Whatever your faith, whatever the issue you passionately advocate, whatever your reason for getting up each morning - you must one day come to terms with the 'why' behind it. Could you live with a dishonest answer? Be informed. Go see this movie.

    The movie suggests to people of faith a roadmap of how they can cohabit this planet peaceably. It is quite a tragedy that divisive and historically inaccurate movies like Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" were mainstreamed to millions of viewers, whereas not only was it hard to find a movie theater that ran "Constantine's Sword", but there do not even appear to be any reviews of it by known film critics. Perhaps this is another "Inconvenient Truth" that many wish to turn a blind eye to.The only critcism that can be rendered is that someone who has read James Carrolls' book will be disappointed to find that the movie only touched on a few segments of the book. Ninety five minutes is just not enough time to cover the book's span-a mini series might have been better. However for those who see the movie first, they will want more, and can get it by reading the book.
