Ileana’s Movie Review: Priest

Sony Pictures

Starring: Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q

Summary: Like so many movies lately, Priest is based on a graphic novel. In the post-apocalyptic future, a group of super-powered priests serve as humanity’s the last line of defense against the evil vampire hordes. Sanctioned by the church, the priests fought the great Vampire Wars and afterwards they were disbanded. When his niece is kidnapped by vampires, a Priest (Bettany) defies the church and sets out to find her. He is aided by a lawman (Gigandet) and a fellow Priestess (Maggie Q). On their journey they discover that the vampire menace is stronger than ever and lookin  to wage war on the humans. Now the team must not only save the girl but humanity as well.

To be perfectly honest, I went to this movie because Paul Bettany is in it. The movie itself isn’t terrible it’s just not great. I liked the post- apocalyptic look of the film, which is like Judge Dredd meets Mad Max. I also wish the action and fight sequences were better. And even though the vampires don’t sparkle or brood over girls, they look too primitive and slimy. Personally I like my vampires to be part human, like the ones on 30 Days of Night or From Dusk ‘til Dawn.

Trivia: Gerard Butler and Steven Strait were originally cast in this film.

Rated: PG-13 – For intense sequences of violence and action, disturbing images and brief strong language.

Grade: C
