an awful mess.
Priest, a western-fused post-apocalyptic thriller, is set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.
Again, this director-actor due brought us a bad movie. atleast LEGION had some story and thrill to it and was a bit interesting, it was bad too but PRIEST is worst than it. thats is like biggest insult for the director and the movie itself, people hated and critics completely panned that movie but whats more worst than calling this movie even worst than Legion? i wasn't willing to see this movie have read the reviews and it is one of the worst reviewd film of the year but i did for a silly summer pleasure. this is kind of a mash up of many genres like a western with Post-apocalyptic world with vampires and religion and some pretty blade runner type of city. movie itself has many cliched things. it just seem like a Resident evil stuff, vampires are awful in it.
move is very short and very slow dull and boring paced which makes you feel even it is shorter than other movies it still seems like an overlong movie like it is being stretched. badly made movie. Director Scott Stewart gave a horrible direction to this movie. worst screenplay with many hollow and emptiness and just pure garbage. very badly written. CGI or visual effects are terrible, vampires and everything else looks bad. cinematography is below average and every other technical thing sucks too.
what was the point of making this movie, i hope it gets a Razzie nomination seriously man it made me angry. Paul Bettany should stop doing these same old Religious/Rebel hero thing it just doesn't work and i am tired of him. acting performances are awful ofcourse but Cam Gigandent, Stephen Moyer (in small role) and Christopher Plummer looks bit of good in their characters. Karl Urban is the main evil villain in it.
the ending scene is the only good thing about it makes you thrill and feel the action but otherwise this movie is a very bad movie. NOT RECOMMENDED at all.
